Nor the Gilligan's Island theme song in Amish Paradise.

Besides, they're not copied, but it is a direct reference.

Well when you think that the entire Jim Croce reference in the CNR song is put in there to try to emphasize the TOUGHNESS of CNR, then you see why it may have been put in...You Don't Mess Around With Jim used that "spit into the wind....tug on superman's cape...etc" to emphasize the toughness, and that song is known well enough that I'd understand why it's in there. But I wouldn't go as far as to say it's really doing much more than referencing it.

CNR Life of Reilly

Postby Orthography Enthusiast » Mon Apr 12, 2010 12:21 am

Here are some clips of CNR himself, doing his autobiographical stage show "Life of Reilly." The "Circus" clip is pretty harrowing.

I really, really liked this song before last night.

Then, he did it in concert and I absolutely LOVED it. Then my friend was like, "Who's CNR?" :oo

Yeah I really like the song live. Al just seems to put more passion into the song.

By the way, who edited the verse out? JibJab or Al?

Cause he does the full version in concert and on the album, so I was just a bit curious. I know Al doesn't like anyone else editing his stuff, so I'd assume he did it? I never heard any reasonings behind it.

I think JibJab. Probably didn't feel like animating the whole song, I dunno.
