More nifty SF music: "Gotta Get Loose"

Yes, Lee Majors himself sings this pretty cool little song called "Gotta Get Loose," from the first of the episodes from The Six Million Dollar Man that introduced the character of the bionic woman.

Couple of things to note about this YouTube clip: the opening shot is the one and only place in the whole series that establishes the canonical spelling of Steve Austin's full first name. Up to this point, it was anyone's guess wether he was really a Steven or a Stephen; here, it's clearly shown that he's Steven (he's NEVER called that in the series; all other references, even on close-ups of his ID card, are to "Steve" Austin).

Also, you want a quick and dirty guarantee of an excellent Six Million Dollar Man episode? Look for that special credit, "And ALAN OPPENHEIMER as Dr. Rudy Wells." Not only is Alan Oppenheimer one of the great TV character actors of all time (as well as brilliant voice artist -- he was Man-at-Arms and Skeletor in He-Man and the Masters of the Universe), but just about every SMDM episode he was in was intelligent and first rate.
