“Goodbye, Three Mile Island”

With Chernobyl in the news again, perhaps we need to revive this song.

Gary and the Outriders, a local music group, recorded an original song, "Goodbye T.M.I. (The Ballad of Three Mile Island)," and released it as a 45 rpm record. Its catchy melody contrasts with its dire refrain: "Goodbye, goodbye to your life, T.M.I."

Not bad, but I prefer Radiation Funk, which was another song written about Three Mile Island.

It sounds a lot like the song 'Runaround Sue'. Intentional, perhaps?

Alex, the tune is Runaround Sue with new lyrics. This is not uncommon among novelty records, especially when trying to get something out there quickly. It would save time in composing.

How about We Will All Go Together When We Go, by the insuperable Tom Lehrer?
