Saved By The Bell

When I wake up in the morning
And the clock lets out a warning
I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time
By the time I got my books I give myself a look
I’m at the corner just in time to see the bus slide by

If you can’t identify the lyrics of this theme song then I don’t even want to talk to you. Please leave this site immediately. You have no business being here if you don’t know about one of the greatest pieces of cinematography and artistic expression ever known to man. Of course I am talking about “Saved by the Bell” the original. I say original because I don’t consider the college years to be part of the masterpiece that we came to know and love. Have you guys seen that? No one has lived in a dorm room that nice. I’ll be happy to live in that dorm room when I am 35.

Even though this show started in the very late eighties, I will forever think of it as a
quintessential part of my eighties experience. I even watched “Good Morning Miss Bliss” which was later spun off into “Saved by the Bell.” I never understood how several characters went from living in Indiana in “Good Morning Miss Bliss” to suddenly all being together at the same high school, located in California. A little weird but there is no way I can be mad at this show.

Remember when Kelly broke up with Zach at the school dance because of that sleazebag Jeff (who was about 29 at the same time but no one seemed to mind). Jesse and A.C. singing “How Am I Supposed to Live without You” in the gym as Zach and Kelly danced outside. I lost a little bit of my heart that day and I have never been able to get it back. How could she do that to Zach Morris? The guy had a cell phone while all of us were using carrier pigeons.

If you have not seen an episode in a long time, do yourself a favor: pop in a DVD and catch up with your old gang from Bayside High. And then check out the home made adult movie starring Screech. Never thought I would write that sentence in a million years
