Talk Soup (song)

Talk Soup (song)

"Talk Soup" is a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. The song's title is a reference to the cable show Talk Soup, which appeared on E!

The lyrics describe a man who is desperate to appear on Geraldo, Sally Jessy Raphael, or any other daytime talk show and talk about his bizarre relationships, uncommon family relations, and his unusual opinions.

Originally, E! approached Al and asked him if he would write a song for their cable show "Talk Soup." Al supposedly wrote the lyrics, "which they approved," recorded the song, "which they said they loved." E!, however never used it. The song ends with the same "E!" clip used at the end of the show of the same name.

Famous quotes containing the words talk and/or soup:

    “... I’ll talk to you, old woman, afterward.
    I’ve got some news that maybe isn’t news.
    What are they trying to do to me, these two?”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    They fought the dogs and killed the cats,
    And bit the babies in the cradles,
    And ate the cheeses out of the vats,
    And licked the soup from the cooks’ own ladles,
    Split open the kegs of salted sprats,
    Made nests inside men’s Sunday hats,
    And even spoiled the women’s chats
    By drowning their speaking
    With shrieking and squeaking
    In fifty different sharps and flats.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
