Teddy Pendergrass, “Close the Door” (The Essential Teddy Pendergrass, 2007)
In the “Live Show” episode of 30 Rock last year, there was a Dr. Spaceman sketch in which our “doctor” informs us of his new medical product for erectile dysfunction: “For too long, erectile dysfunction has been viewed as a physical problem, and it’s been treated with pills and ointments and contraptions whose straps break all too easily,” he explains. “But couldn’t the real cause of E.D. be that we haven’t produced a good ‘doing it’ song since ‘Close the Door’ by Teddy Pendergrass? That’s why I recorded an album. Guaranteed to end erectile dysfunction, these are the sweet sounds of Dr. Leo Spaceman’s Love Storm. An ultra-strength audio re-boneulator.” It’s even funnier if you know the 1978 Pendergrass song. See above.
