Big Mo moves a little slow these days. But then, he’s almost 85.

It’s known that Jake is an all-time master at picking clips so when would he ever allow someone else to curate his show? When that someone else is multimedia goddess Rachel Lichtman!!! She sits in with Jake and talks about her work for The Monkees, having the most obscure pop culture references on her twitter feed, and her documentary, Candy Store Profits, all on today’s episode of The Fogelnest Files! Jake and Rachel mind meld over her collection of delightful clips that include; a young woman in 1965 New York fawning over The Beetles and sprouting a new generation, the lo-fi origins of the Doctor Who theme song, and the Bee Gees on Howard Stern’s New Years Rotten Eve serenading John Bobbit’s lost penis. They also check out and try to understand a commercial from 1982 for an English leather British bikini girl contest that’s narrated with enough velocity to melt your face. To watch the clips discussed on this episode go to: http://www.youtube.com/thefogelnestfiles. Make sure to leave your reviews for every James Bond movie in “The Fogelnest Files” section on Itunes and also come see Jake live at UCB Theatre on Jan. 31st with special guests Rob Huebel and Chelsea Peretti!
Whaaat! Holy shit, awesome. Go Rachel.
Little French Boy - Burt Bacharach/Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass - Casino Royale (1967) original soundtrack
I have been thoroughly obsessed with this soundtrack of late. There’s not a dud in the bunch. It’s zany, ridiculous, and obscenely catchy. I just watched the film last night for the first time: I would describe it as “bonkers.”
Got A Girl Crush On: France Gall and the other Yé-Yé Girls.
It all started when Mrs. Draper performed her rendition of Gillian Hill’s Zou Bisou Bisou. Shortly after, Wes Anderson puts out yet another amazing soundtrack lodging François Hardy’s Le Temps De L’amour in everyone’s (including us here at GAGC) heads.
If you, too, are a sucker for this Yé-Yé Girl Revival, you’ll most likely fall for the likes of France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb, Sylvie Varten, Pussy Cat, Sheila, Les Intrigantes, Chantal Goya, Pussy Cat and (perhaps not a true yé-yé girl, but I’ll use any excuse I can to squeeze in) my all-time biggest girl crush, Anna.
Yeeeess ma’am! I’ve been yé-yé crazy this summer.

There are some very sweet moves and styles going on here
A pretty awesome 11 minutes and 51 seconds of history.
