If you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory, you’re no doubt familiar with the method employed by other characters to soothe uptight scientist Sheldon when he gets upset: a lullaby about a soft, nice kitty that helps him settle down to sleep when he’s having trouble. That “Soft Kitty” song has also turned into big merchandising bucks, money the show doesn’t deserve according to a new lawsuit that claims the lyrics are a ripoff. [More]
Over the weekend, we wrote about Wendy’s decision to pull a disco compilation CD included in kids’ meals because of supposed suggestive lyrics in a Donna Summer song. But now the disco diva is coming out swinging against the fast food chain, saying Wendy’s has burger grease in its ears.
Donna Summer’s 1978 hit “Last Dance” won a Grammy and an Oscar, sold over 5 million copies, and reached Number 3 on the Billboard chart. But none of that matters to the tastemakers at Wendy’s. The fast-food chain has dropped the Karaoke Disco Fever CD — which included the Summer hit — from its kids meals because some customers apparently thought the line “when I’m bad I’m so, so bad” was actually “when I’m bad I’m so, so horny.” We can only wonder what they would have thought of “Love to Love You Baby.”
