Beer Tone – You’re The Best (Theme From Karate Kid)




Try to be best
‘Cause you’re only a man
And a man’s gotta learn to take it

Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it

History repeats itself
Try and you’ll succeed

Never doubt that you’re the one
And you can have your dreams!

You’re the best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down

Fight ‘til the end
Cause your life will depend
On the strength that you have inside you

Ah you gotta be proud
starin’ out in the cloud
When the odds in the game defy you

Try your best to win them all
and one day time will tell
when you’re the one that’s standing there
you’ll reach the final bell!

You’re the best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down

You’re the best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down

Fight ‘til you drop
never stop
can’t give up
Til you reach the top (FIGHT!)
you’re the best in town (FIGHT!)
Listen to that sound
A little bit of all you got
Can never bring you down

You’re the best!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling New Comedy Album
Entitled ‘snart’ For Oglio Records On 4/20

Los Angeles – Radio personality, stand-up comedian, comedy writer, singer-songwriter, author and actor Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling follows up on his classic album F. Jackie with his new comedy album entitled snart, his sixth album of stand-up comedy for his long time label Oglio Records, distributed by Fontana/Universal in the U.S. and INGrooves internationally. The CD version of snart comes with a bonus DVD containing over two hours of visuals.

“I’m sure that you think I think snart’s a great name for a dirty joke CD because it’s concise, and reminiscent of snot, and fart, etc. Maybe that’s all true. Maybe that, and even more is true. Maybe. But snart’s an abbreviation. I’ve always maintained that telling dirty jokes on stage is an art, …’s an art, …’s n’ art, …snart. I love jokes, and I’ve remembered every one I’ve come across since 1954. This is the sixth comedy CD I’ve filled with 78 minutes of the very best of those jokes, all performed “live” in front of other people who love jokes, too. I hope you enjoy listening, and that you’ll also pass along these jokes night after night, much the way I do.”
- Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling

Jackie Martling is best known for having been a long-time cast member and head writer of the legendary Howard Stern Show from 1986-2001. He can currently be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, hosting “Jackie’s Joke Hunt” on Howard 101 Tuesdays at 7 pm EST. First hitting the comedy stage in 1979, Jackie’s been a national headliner since the early 80?s and has also appeared in many independent films and television shows including as himself in The Howard Stern Show Paramount film, Private Parts.

Jackie “The Joke Man” Martlin boasts a catalog of over thirty joke products, CD’s, DVD’s, books, electronic joke gadgets for adults and children, and joke by-products by his own Jokeland, Inc. Also to Jackie’s credit, “Use Your Finger! (516) 922-WINE”, the world’s longest running dirty joke line, just celebrated it’s 30th fun-filled year.

“Jackie Martling is cut from the same cloth as the greatest comedians of all time. His style, experience, and amazing ability to make people laugh put him into this elite group. Jackie has never sounded better or more comfortable on stage and ‘snart’ reflects this. I’m proud of this this release and I am proud to be working with Jackie on our 8th project together.”

- Carl Caprioglio

snart is Jackie’s sixth comedy record and eighth record overall for Oglio Records. His previous catalog includes F. Jackie, Hot Dogs + Donuts, Sgt. Pecker, The Joke Man and Come Again?. Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling has also released two audio companions to his long running children’s electronic joke gadgets entitled Jokemaster Jr. and Grossmaster Jr..

What makes Majors for Minors Music Special?

At conception of our series of music, we carried out a great deal of research in understanding exactly how certain types of classical music stimulate brain development. Through understanding the process involved, we went on to develop our own “Unique Formula”, consisting of a number of “Key Ingredients” that effectively used together, produced this special of classical music.

For example, a number of the CD’s have produced with the use of one key throughout. This has the resulting effect of being similar to “Pink Noise” or “Ocean Sound” which has been shown to have a positive effect on the brain. Another of the elements is “frequency”. In parts of our music, our Flute instrument frequencies are almost identical to the frequency of a whale call. There have been numerous documentaries and research papers into the benefits of these frequencies, which have been shown to calm and stimulate. We have greatly expanded this avenue of thinking and associated theories, and developed a further range of “Special Elements” which have been incorporated into Majors for Minors music. This unique “Ingredient List” has worked with great success, and is what sets our music apart from anything else that is available in this niche category.

“When a baby comes into the world her brain is a jumble of neurons all waiting to be woven into the intricate tapestry of the mind”
- Sharon Begley, Newsweek

What this means is that there are specific periods in your child’s life when neurological pathways in the brain need to be stimulated, or they will “literally fade away.” Well documented research has demonstrated the positive effect of music on the development and strengthening of patterns in the cortex in the brains infants and young children. These pathways are the same ones responsible for certain cognitive functions, as well as higher learning such as math and science. I have found memories of playing musical games with the Stay Put Toddler Plates we had, it made us eat dance and laugh.

“When children exercise cortical neurons by listening to classical music, they are also strengthening circuits used for mathematics and complex reasoning”
- Gordon Shaw, U.C. Irvine

“Amazing Adult Fantasy” is Bill Mumy's favorite Barnes and Barnes album and we are proud to re-release it for the first time on CD with 8 bonus tracks!

There's some great kick ass 80's rock on this album, from the opening track, “Learn to Kiss the Enemy", it was clear Barnes and Barnes wanted to make sure their audience knew there was more to them than "Fish Heads". But fear not novelty music fans, there's plenty of quirky lyrics here that will bring a chuckle to the most hardened brain. This album is full of great songs, unique production and it's even occasionally fun to dance to! Featuring guest appearances by: Steve Perry of Journey, America, Wild Man Fischer, jazz saxophonist George Englund, German artist Annerose Bucklers and even a ghost! Cover by the legendary comic book great, Spider Man co-creator Steve Ditko! Amazing Adult Fantasy is truly an amazing album! Yeah.

Barnes & Barnes "Kodovoner"

Buy Now!
One score and two years ago, brothers Art & Artie Barnes, put forth onto this planet a new album. An album forged in righteousness and purpose. An album created to stir the better qualities that lay dormant within all mankind. Well... that album never came out for one reason or another, UNTIL NOW. That's right! At last, Barnes and Barnes have assembled and made ready for release, their often rumored, never heard, “Kodovoner” album! Inspired by the great Brian Wilson and the completion of his legendary “SmiLE” project, Barnes and Barnes have finally made “Kodovoner” available and it has been worth the wait. (Or not. You decide). Featuring guest appearances by Gerry Beckley & Dewey Bunnell (America), a co-lead vocal by Shaun Cassidy, (Mr. Cassidy has left the building), Jethro Tull drummer Doane Perry and legendary rock percussionist Mike Baird, "Kodovoner" sounds like no other B&B project. This unique, long considered lost album includes a song co-written by Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh. "Kodovoner" has been expanded from it's original 15 songs to now include literally all the tracks they wrote during this period that at one time or another were intended for this long lost bold and friendly Barnes & Barnes album. 24 tracks! 80 minutes of quirky Lumanian rock from Barnes and Barnes. Yeah!

Barnes & Barnes "Spazchow"

Buy Now!
Welcome to Spazchow, the second Barnes and Barnes album, originally released on Rhino Records in November, 1981. Spazchow means "to suffer at the hands of women and make music." The vast majority of the songs are bittersweet odes to the women in their lives, past and present, who were consuming their thoughts. Spazchow is a kind of demented diary, a journal into twisted soap opera-like relationships, from past teenage flames on up through pathetic future visions, the songs flow as freely as steaming saki.
