I believe the "Gidget Theme" that appeared in the BotB was TV's "(Wait 'Til You See) My Gidget" by Johnny Tillotson, and not, the movie theme "Gidget" by James Darren.

Got it. "Gidget Theme" is no more and Johnny Tillotson is now present.

I would've definitely left in Gidget Theme. 

It was a TV theme, the same as Lost in Space and Skippy, The Bush Kangaroo, both of which are still listed (and both of which were also movies).  

Gidget went for about 45 seconds. It wasn't a release for Johnny Tillotson, and I don't believe he should be listed in preference to it. 

It would be like omitting the two aforementioned TV themes and listing Johnny Williams and Eric Jupp instead. 

They were presented in the Battle as TV themes; not credited to those performing it.

Given that this is a list of performers and not the songs they performed, I thought it was strange to see TV theme songs and movie soundtracks included instead of who performed them.

But to be consistent and remove duplication, I've put the Gidget theme back, while indicating who performed it to remove any confusion, and deleted the separate entry for Johnny Tillotson:

Gidget TV Theme (Johnny Tillotson)

Also, I've changed the other TV theme and soundtrack entries, using the same format and including individuals associated with those pieces of music (when known):

Big Match TV theme (   )

Jungle Book 1967 soundtrack (Phil Harris)

Lost In Space TV theme (John Williams)

Maude TV theme (Donny Hathaway)

Mary Poppins soundtrack (Julie Andrews)

Skippy the Bush Kangaroo TV theme (Eric Jupp and His Music)

Tarzan soundtrack (Phil Collins)

Valerie TV theme (Roberta Flack)

I also deleted that pushy George Gershwin, even though he used to play the piano.

Someone please remind me: Is this a paying or non-paying internship?

Larry, The Big Match theme was either 'La Soiree' by David Ordini (sometimes credited as just 'Ordini') or Burt Rhodes and the London Festival Orchestra. 

Both are listed on the internet, with no means of hearing the second. 

I would definitely have included George Gershwin on the list. He was credited as the artist on Tom's entry of 'Rhapsody in Blue', from Season I.

Assuming that was indeed the Gershwin recording from 1924, you're correct. I knew he played the piano, but not lately. So George is back in the list. Thank you, Darren.

As the 'B-Side' to "Our World", it was an official release:
[8265470610_24f243446b_m] 
Here's the full version:


It's a Tillotson record, plain and simple.

t -- Thanks for pointing out that Johnny Tillotson did indeed release "(Wait Til You See) My Gidget", which was the song in the video snoops71 posted three years ago.

I hope you and Darren can both accept my decision to include the singer's name in the entry, like I'm doing for the other movie and TV themes, i.e.

Gidget TV Theme (Johnny Tillotson)
Jungle Book 1967 soundtrack (Phil Harris)
 and so on.

Here's the video that competed in Season 4, Week 13, for anyone who wants to hear Gidget introduce herself before more of Johnny Tillotson's song:



My two cents: Sally Field will be 70 this year and is still adorable.

That is an acceptable way to list it, Larry. 

To clarify, the full version was released as a Johnny Tillotson record. 

It runs for 2:01. 

As I said, the 45 second TV theme was the song showcased in snoops' battle, as a TV theme; not credited as a Tillotson record.
