I was watching The Simpsons last night, an episode called Viva Ned Flanders, and was excited to find that The Moody Blues were in it! Also, in another called Covercraft, Homer and Bart debate on Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel in Genesis

This has been a source of debate elsewhere but around the mid-70s, a Thames ITV drama (UK) featured a character perusing the cover of Leg End by Henry Cow.  More recently, amazed to see Robert Fripp on prime time TV greeting his wife (Toyah) from the jungle on I'm a Celebrity!  While on the same programme, I was willing Steve Davis (famous UK prog fan) to discuss his love of Magma, RIO etc. with the other celebs but he obviously held back on that one!

I remember at one point in the '80s asking a grocery clerk for a free poster of the Genesis boys circa Abacab. I believe the whole thing was being sponsored by Mountain Dew or the like. If my memory is faulty, let me know.
It just has none of the qualities of your work that I find interesting. Abandon (?) it.

Tonight’s episode of “Aquarius” includes a scene in a bar where the jukebox is playing “Playmate” by Pearls Before Swine.

Caption: We tend to take ourselves a little too seriously.

Apparently there is a Gillette add with King Crimson's "Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream" playing in the background.

I like the part where he hurts himself trying to drum along to Bruford.

If you think that its pretentious, you've been taken for a ride.

I just saw this season's final episode of Person of Interest and was surprised to hear 'Welcome to the Machine'. They couldn't have picked a more appropriate track Thumbs Up

Yes' Heart of the Sunrise as a soundtrack of already classic scene in Buffalo'66 the movie (1998), ought to be mentioned again...

On tonight’s episode of Late Show With David Letterman, comedian Brian Regan was played on and off with Afterglow by Genesis, presumably at his request. Thumbs Up

Not exactly prog, but I remember in the last episode of the classic Brit series The Prisoner The Beatles' All You Need Is Love playing in the background as the lead character is on the run in one segment. Then there was the episode of another Brit import called U.F.O. where some party goers are seen dancing to the Fabs' Get Back.

Not really unexpected in my opinion, but Rifftrax, from the guys of MST3K, have made countless jokes about ELP whenever there is a movie/short with a synth-heavy soundtrack.

Another Genesis reference on primetime TV this season: on the Supernatural episode “There’s No Place Like Home”, Sam and Dean’s FBI-agent aliases are “Gabriel” and “Collins.”

Something interesting I came upon in WikiPedia, about Berkeley Breathed’s classic comic strip character Opus the Penguin:

 

Quote In a 2003 interview with The A.V. Club, Breathed revealed that "Opus was named after a Kansas song." (The band's 1976 album Leftoverture includes the song "Opus Insert" and a suite called "Magnum Opus".) He also added, "If you're too young to know who Kansas was, to hell with you."

But the thing that was really surprising was in S1. E8. "Joy's Wedding" when the following scene caught my eye.

That song the lords of the underworlds play the main riff is actually the spirit of radio by Rush sped up

Mystery Science Theater 3000, one of the best and most halairous show in history makes several referances to Rush in many of thier episodes, and in the MST3K movie they talk about an alien planet that "looks like a Roger Dean painting... they must olisten to alot of Yes here"


Don't forget Yes ("Owner of a Lonely Heart" - ok, not a proggy song, but still Yes) on mst3k. Smile The episode was "Final Justice."


And here's one that's way, way off the beaten path.  Behold the double-obscurity of Trevor Rabin, guitarist, combined with Rhythm of the Pride Lands: Music Inspired by Disney's The Lion King.  That's right - it's a sequel to The Lion King's soundtrack.. not the soundtrack to the sequel to The Lion King.  (?!?!?!)

Here are the credits for the first song:
Lyrics and music by Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin and Lebo M
Arranged by Mark Mancina
Lead vocal: Lebo M
Vocal solos: Maxi Anderson, Khanyo Maphumulo, Max ngcobo, Khululiwe Sithole and Rose Stone.
Drums: Simon Phillips
Bass: Abe Laboriel
Guitar: Trevor Rabin
Background vocals: S. African Choir, form S. Africa, and Maxi Anderson, Ron Kunene, Ricky Nelson, Rose Stone, Oren Waters and terry Young, from the U.S.

Hope you're doing well, mate!

The episode was pretty funny, because Bart showed more talent to impress some jazz big-wigs than Lisa did (much to her annoyance!)!

Bart: "Lisa, I need you to teach me all about the world of Juzz."
Lisa: "It's JAZZ!"

Always a pleasure being here. However, I miss bleeding gums Murphy.
