|My favorite selection from this collection.|
It's a video.
Yeah, I know, I said I'm watching all the episoded of MST3K. I didn't say anything about the videos.
Well, how do you think I got to see all the episodes? Taped them myself? Only a crazy person would do that.
The only thing crazier than that would be somebody who paid money or other good and valuable considerations for a copy of the videos that the crazy person recorded off the television. And guess what? I'm not the person that recorded the shows. I'm... just never you mind.

Why does this matter? Well, three of the 13 songs on the video are from Season Six. Which means that, if this was released in the Spring of 1994, then those that got the tape right when it came out got an advance look at some Host Segments from the upcoming season.
Play MST for Me contained songs from Seasons Two and Three. Play MSTie For Me 2 contains songs from Seasons Four, Five, and Six:
|Here they go a-caroling.|
- Oh, Kim Cattrall from Episode 403: City Limits. Crow's ode to the lovely actress.
- The Janitor Song from Episode 514: Teen-Age Strangler. Mike sings of the hard life of a school janitor who, as we find later in the film, kills teens.
- My Wild Irish Ireland from Episode 516: Alien from L.A. An Irish ditty about the lovely Ms. Ireland.
- Toobular Boobular Joy from Episode 519: Outlaw. A Vaudeville-era-like number that celebrates the joys of skin. Round supple skin.
- TV's Frank & Dr. Forrester from Episode 519: Outlaw. They dance.
- Whispering Christmas Warrior from Episode 521: Santa Claus. Mike leads a hard rock Christmas band.
- Merry Christmas -- If That's O.K. from Episode 521: Santa Claus. A political correct holiday for everyone. If that's O.K.
- Doughy Guys from Episode 522: Teen-Age Crime Wave. A celebration of people that look like me!
- Mystos from Episode 522: Teen-Age Crime Wave. A parody of the Mentos commercials.
- The Greatest Frank of All from Episode 523: Village of the Giants. Celebrating Frank.
- Cosmic Freight Train from Episode 603: The Dead Talk Back. The Dead. Get it? It's a joke, son.
- Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter from Episode 605: Colossus and the Headhunters. Frank takes the spotlight.
- Square Dance from Episode 607: Bloodlust! Seems Joel isn't the only one that likes to make fun of certain types of music involving barns and overalls.
- Danger to Myself and Others from Episode 406: Attack of the Giant Leeches. Joel & the Bots sing of the "Hey, Y'all, watch this!" crowd.
- Pants! from Episode 410: Hercules against the Moon Men. What the men in this movie needed.
- Estelle from Episode 411: The Magic Sword Crow has a new love.
- The Gypsy Moons from Episode 417: Crash of the Moons. A Vaudeville-era-like number about heavenly bodies. You're reading more into that than you should.
- Hired! from Episode 423: Bride of the Monster. It's actually from the short film of the same name. J&tB turn it into a musical.
- What a Pleasant Journey/Cars from Episode 509: The Girl In Lovers Lane. A train song. At first. We are saved by Movie Sign.
- Who Will I Kill? from Episode 624: Samson vs. The Vampire Women. Dr. Forrester laments the loss of Frank.
|They sing goodbye to Frank when he didn't leave.|
The things I agonize over. Of course, most things are pretty straight-forward. I just don't have 100% certainty that this video came out between Season Five and Season Six. If I find out it came out later, I'll ... well, I don't know what I'll do.
It's so nice when I know everything about what happened. That's most things. At least, being a know-it-all, I like to think that. This project, though, has shown me just how much I don't know about MST3K. I'm working on correcting that.
Up soon... Season Six!
