We will of course, honor selections that you may have in mind. Just about ANY song you like can be used as an introduction!!
When people (mostly Americans) usually hear "Spanish Flea," the initial reaction is that it's "the Dating Game show theme." The song, and this version of it, was in fact used for many years as the theme song of the popular television show.
Demands for a single resulted in a rare vocal hit for Alpert.
Later years: Herb continued in this vein until 1974, recording various incarnations of the Tijuana Brass and augmenting them with Los Angeles' famed "Wrecking Crew" sessions musicians.
Having released "Bull" with the name "Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass," he set about finding musicians for his fictional band.
The song and recording also achieved some modernist "kitsch" notoriety when it was used in the cartoon show The Simpsons, with the main character, Homer Simpson, singing an out-of-tune vocal rendition in his happier moments.
He eventually turned most of his attention to signing acts for A&M Records, which exploded in popularity in the '70s with acts such as Styx, Carpenters, and The Police.
In 1979 he engineered a remarkable comeback with the funkier instrumental "Rise," and continued in that vein for the next decade or so, also becoming a presence on the R&B charts.
