says:

Where can I find the words to the Treme theme song? Are they “jumping and having fun”?

Mel

says:

Hi Eneri, I will see if I can find them for you, but it is actually “jammin’ and having fun” “buckjumpin’ and havin’ fun.”

A little trick, if you can switch on close captioning on your TV, the lyrics to some of the songs and also the dialogue between the actors will also show up. Even though I live in NOLA, it still helps me.

Mel – Thanks for this site. I’ve Tivo’d Treme for the last few months, but finally got around to it this weekend and I’m hooked.
After I finish watching each show, I’m going through your site and downloading as much of the music as I can. Until they put out the Treme box set, this will have to do!
Thanks for all the work you’re doing here.

Mel

says:

If you ever have any questions, do not hesitate to contact.

I can’t seem to get the download link from this page to the iTunes store to work. Any suggestions?

Mel

says:

Tried this morning and seems to be working ok. When you click on the link, a new window or tab will open up in your browser. Then iTunes will open up to the page where the downloads are. If you are still having trouble, let me know what browser you are using so I can see if I can replicate it on my end.

Thanks, Mel
