Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Jack Jones provided one of the funniest gags in the comedically uneven Airplane II during the opening prison break.
didn't he sing "THE LOOOOOVE BOAT..."theme?
I was about to ride in here and say it was Steve Lawrence who sang that woeful ditty . . . but a quick check reveals that it was indeed Jack Jones (no less than Scott Walker's favorite MOR pop singer).
And a rhyming slang to boot. Now you mention it Tom, I recall he was a Walker fave, I'd forgotten all about that.
"If you go away, if you go away..."Scott's definitive version came a year or two after this.
Tom, not only did he sing the Love Boat theme, he sang it during the aforementioned prison break scene. Picture searchlights trying to find the escapee and instead finding Jack Jones in a tux.
If he sang "Wives and Lovers" today, he'd be s-k-i-n-n-e-d...
