When Strong bad sings at the start, it's to the tune of the theme music for the old kids' show "Romper Room." Where should I add this? -- Caradhras 03:01, 12 October 2005 (UTC)

Apparently, no where. Seeing as it is no where. Add it! — talk Bubsty edits 04:59, 4 November 2005 (UTC)

can't beat that logic. oh, wait. you can. because that was the stupidest thing i have ever heard.Seriously 18:40, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

I'm not so well hrwiki-educated, so I'm going to suggest somebody add in some of the scenery to the song- like when SB carves the logo on SM's arm, "close-up of The Cheat, who stands proudly" or something

I'm saying the whole thing is off-sync. Strong Bad sings in a kinda 3/4 time, while The Cheat plays the tune in a 4/4 time. -- 00:15, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

I noticed that the seat for the ticket in the Easter Egg is section 227. Most arenas and concert venues don't have a section 227. Should I add that?Ripdogg36

[edit] Pop_tire

Should we put it in the remarks that strongbad's voice when he says "population tire" at the end of the strong badia national anthem sounds almost exactly like homsar's voice? G man yo 08:39, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

I don't think so, as I don't really hear much of a similarity at at all. — User:ACupOfCoffee@ 09:36, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
Really, because i heard the song from a download before actually seeing the e-mail, and i actually thought it was homsar singing. It does sound a little more strongbad-like than homsar, but it still has a sort of homsar sound to it. G man yo 10:14, 20 January 2007 (UTC)
I agree, it sounds almost exactly like Homsar to me!-WeirdAl (talk · 18:36, 31 January 2007 (UTC)
I think so too. That sounded almost exactly like Homsar. --Lux Acerbus 00:52, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Visuals

I'm not so well hrwiki-educated, so I'm going to suggest somebody add in some of the scenery to the song- like when SB carves the logo on SM's arm, "close-up of The Cheat, who stands proudly" or something unsigned

So, I moved this old comment to bring attention to it, because it's true. None of the scenery during the song is noted. Should it be documented here, or maybe in a separate "visuals" page like we have for other musical emails like different town and rock opera? The song is pretty short and the visuals are pretty simple, so it shouldn't be too bad for someone more wiki-savvy than I. DAGRON 06:46, 29 November 2007 (UTC)

I added visuals to the transcript, but being a newbie I kind of screwed it up. Understandably, someone else changed it back to normal. I just changed them again though. It's not very professional looking but I think it's better than nothing. If someone who knows of a better way to visually separate the lyrics from the descriptions, please feel free to do so.

Okay. I've done so. RickTommy 10:04, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Gray skies

Okay i've noticed in this and some others that there are gray skies. Should we make a page on that? Also, should we make a page on Strong Bad's weird high-up noted singing voice (more specifically, when he sang "Pop-a-ulation: Tiiiiiiiire!"? Just asking. C-Son-L Sweaters 01:26, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

It's called a falsetto, and i don't think it's necessary. — Defender1031*Talk 01:29, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
What about the Gray Skies he mentioned? They've showed up. Not enough times to make a seperate page on them, but enough to at least put a section on The Field's page. Notable appearances include: this sbemail (flag day), Some Stupid Turkey and myths and legends (if you watch the flash file, the whole sky inside and outside the frame is gray in the scene where Strong Bad is at the fence and a drawing is on the fence (drawn by Lil' Strong Bad as the flash file reveals) that whole scene shows a gray sky) and there are a few more appearances.
