Music is such an important part of TAGS. Wouldn't have been TAGS without it, would it? Let's think of all the different ways music was used in Mayberry. Sometimes it was just for pure enjoyment; sometimes for a special purpose. Let's think of some of those special musical moments and how they influenced the residents of "The Friendly Town":
I hate to say it but I think Clara was trying to vamp the owner of the organ she so wanted for the church. Her rendition (to him) of "Some Enchanted Evening" was absolutely smokin'!
This song would be for a special purpose. In County Nurse episode Andy sings "Dig My Grave with a Silver Spade" to Rafe Hollister to persuade him to get a shot.
"Little Brown Church in the Vale" was used to help settle down Mr. Tucker.
Music, or should I say, "non-music," made Barney feel very important and talented when he "sang" into that special mike during the choir's performance. Instead of hurting Barn's feelings, Andy found a way to solve the choir's problem while keeping their special tenor happy.
Barney's "French Harp" was played to sooth Jimmy the goat.
Through the forest wild and free, sounds the Gypsy melody; Ever dancing as they say, none so merry and none so gay!"
LOL "Klinger," as the self-described "charming gypsy," always cracked me up.
In "Hot Rod Otis" Andy and Barn try to sing Otis out of owning a car with "We Shall Meet, but We Shall Miss Him", but Otis had already sold the car.
And in perfect harmony. That Barn could sing when he had a mind to.
Briscoe Darling having put on his square wheels tried to win over Aunt Bea with "Low and Lonely Over You" outside her bedroom window.
