View Full Version : What's that tune in a Seinfeld episode?

Ok, I just finished watching some Seinfeld's on a tape. In the end of The Wig Master (7th season, episode 128) Kramer is strutting down the street wearing a Technicolor Dreamcoat and a cool tune is playing in the background. So what's the name of that song and who's performing it?

I'm bumping this ancient thread because I've always wanted to know what it was too...

I assume you mean the song in this clip (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAEOYwttFbY). Half the comments for that vid are asking for the name of the song, too. No answers.

Yeah that's the one!

It's some kind of funk, that's all I can tell.

It was probably composed specifically for this scene by the guy who did the theme music.

It sounds like Digable Planets, but if it is I can't place the song.

That's a "song"?

I tried SoundHound (music ID program), but I think the laugh track messes it up.

It was probably composed specifically for this scene by the guy who did the theme music.There are brief vocals in the track, I think if it was made custom for that scene it wouldn't have had that.

The bass line is reminiscent of Digable Planets' Cool Like That (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cM4kqL13jGM). The vocals don't seem to match, though.

I would guess it is a piece of a song on a loop. If you have the DVDs, the fine print of the credits would probably have the credit if it is a song that wasn't composed specifically for the episode.

IMDB.com has no soundtrack entry for this episode, and it usually does if there's anything other than incidental music: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0697811/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
