Two more from the Steve Dahl parody hit factory. I think they're both from 1979 but could from 78 as well, either way they were early on in Steve's career in Chicago. Back when Garry was still Matthew Meier on the overnight shift and Steve's only partners were his characters (Lazlow, Dick Buttkick, Erma C. Residue, Shorty the Midget Engineer, Travis T. Hipp, etc. etc.) and it was "The Steve Dahl Rude Awakening" on The Loop FM 98, WLUP, and before that for about a year Steve was on WDAI (which became "Disco DAI," and Steve quit and went to The Loop and it ultimately lead to Disco Demolition!)
The first song is "We Will Wake You" which is a parody of "We Will Rock You" by Queen. The second song is "Hump Day Fever" which is a parody of "Cat Scratch Fever by Ted Nugent. [NOTE: I never heard the expression "Hump Day" before Steve Dahl. I'm not sure what it's actual origin is but it would not surprise me if the term is a Steve Dahl original (like so many Steve Dahl firsts) that has spread out and become an embedded part of popular culture.]
Enjoy, and don't forget to check out the Steve Dahl podcast, the DahlCast @ www.Dahl.com or on iTunes, www.Dahl.com/iTunes!
