TV and Movies Mentioned in Lyrics, Afternoon Delights
Check out the index.
Rock it hard, rock it steady
Pick yourself up and get yourself ready
Wave your arms let me hear you yell
We're gonna rap about General Hospi-tale
In the summer of 1981, a one-hit wonder group named, Afternoon Delights with lead vocals by Rebecca Hall released a tune about the then #1 daytime drama, ABC-TV's "General Hospital" (has been airing on that network since 1963), entitled, "General Hospi-tale". It was done as an early rap tune about all of the major storylines going on on the show at that time (including one of the most popular starcrossed super-couples of all time on daytime, Luke & Laura Spencer & also about Dr. Noah Drake who was played by actor/singer, Rick Springfield who was having a #1 song on the charts at the time, "Jesse's Girl"). Afternoon Delights' took "General Hospi-tale" all the way into the Top 40 in the fall of 1981 (as I recall somewhere in the Top 20 to 30 positions is how far it went, with on "American Top 40" radio program, dj, Casey Kasem introducing the song giving a breakdown of events on the show for those who didn't watch the show).
