Hold me closer, Tony Danza

Hold me closer Tony DanzaThis misheard lyric comes from an early episode of Friends. Phoebe is talking about the song by Elton John about Tony Danza, and starts singing, “Hold me closer, Tony Danza“.

I don’t think anyone had the heart to tell her it was “Hold me closer, tiny dancer“. But I like her version better.

The song also had a brief resurgence in the 2000 movie Almost Famous.

And speaking of Tony Danza, it’s a shame his short-lived talk show got canceled. I was a big fan of the Danzitions segments on The Soup. There’s an example in this clip:

  1. I am so happy to be meeting Tony Danza in this totally legit not-photoshopped-at-all picture of me and Tony you included in the post.

    On another Danza-related note, when Aaron and I attended the PPAI conference in Las Vegas in 2002, there were billboards advertising the Tony Danza Experience featuring the vocal stylings of Mr. Tony Danza. Sadly, we didn’t get to see/hear his show.

    I hear though, that Tony is a better singer than he is a go-kart driver. Remember this?
