(Meet) The Flintstones – The BC-52s

(Meet) The Flintstones was composed in 1961 by Hoyt Curtin, Joseph Barbera and William Hanna. Originally performed by the Randy Van Horne Singers as the theme song for the opening of The Flintstones animated series, this cover by the BC-52s (geddit?) was for the best-forgotten 1994 live-action remake, starring John Goodman, Elizabeth Perkins, Rick Moranis, Rosie O’Donnell, Halle Berry, Kyle MacLachlan and Elizabeth Taylor (in her final theatrical film appearance). The film may not have been great but the cover is pretty good. The samples are nicely done (thank Junior Vasquez for this, he remixed the track) and it’s got a great break and guitar solo. Even the cast look like they’re having fun, out on some hokey set in the 1990s California sunshine, before the internet kicked in and ruined everything for everyone…what a great time to be a film star!
