The producers of the TV-show Friends wanted a theme that was similar to "Shiny Happy People" by R.E.M. They eventually met up with the duo known as The Rembrandts, Phil Solem and Danny Wilde. Together they threw together a one-minute tune that the producers were satisfied with, and they thought their job was done.
Flash forward a year later when Friends makes its debut and becomes a hit. A radio-station in Nashville loops the one minute "song" into a three minute gag and gets so many calls about it that eventually, Solem and Wilde were ordered back into the studio to record a full three minute version. That song hit the US airwaves in 1995, getting as high as #17on the Hot 100. The record company also commissioned a fun music video to go along with it, which I present to you here.
