Tracy Jordan “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah”

In the 30 Rock episode “Jack Gets In The Game” the character Tracy Jordan, played by the actor Tracy Morgan,  is undergoing a trial separation with his wife. She’s kicked him out of the house and in one scene, she comes down to NBC to deliver a box of Tracy’s things, including the gold record for as Tracy describes it, “that novelty party song.” At this point, the show cuts away to a brief clip from that song, “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah.”

NBC recognized how popular this scene was, so they actually had Morgan record a whole three minute version of the track. The results are quite funny. For a while, NBC offered an mp3 of the track, but this has since been discontinued. If you want an mp3 of the track, just leave a comment on this post. No trick, just treat.
