Why Did Kelsey Grammer Sing About ‘Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs’ Over ‘Frasier’s’ Closing Credits?
Have you ever wondered why Kelsey Grammer sang about “tossed salads and scrambled eggs” over the closing credits of ‘Frasier’? Well, now we know…sort of.
The song’s composer Bruce Miller says, quote, “They wanted something pretty eclectic and jazzy, but to avoid any direct references to specific subject matter.
“So it was necessary to stay away from words about psychiatry, radio shows, the name ‘Frasier’, and anything else directly indicating aspects of the show.
“I needed a lyric that would work, so I called my friend…[he had the] idea of ‘Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs.’ At first I was a bit baffled myself until he explained that these were things that were ‘mixed up,’ like Frasier Crane’s patients.”
That makes a little sense . . . I guess. Anyway, you can revisit the closing theme below and youou can read the whole story at KenLevine.Blogspot.com, but there isn’t much more to it.
