There is some uncertainty about which title should be fifth in the list. Wikipedia says "Summer Nights" from Grease has the phrase in the background, but I can't hear it. A long time ago I heard a song with those lyrics set to a different rhythm, but I can't find that one again.

    I hadn't really known/paid attention, no!

    All of those were worth a watch!

    I'll try embedding them.

    The two girls are great!
    The Trashmen singer is adorable.
    And McHale's Navy clip is hilarious!
    :)

    When I hear this song, I have to stop and sing along. Thanks for posting all of these.

    Interesting! I knew there was more than one, but I had no idea how many.
