I'm Lindana and I Wanna Have Fun! is a one-hit wonder song sung by Linda Flynn-Fletcher as Lindana, shown in "Flop Starz" and "Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!". It was the song that she told Phineas and Ferb about that convinced them to make a one-hit wonder.

The song became elevator music and is featured in the episode "Are You My Mummy?" during a chase scene in the elevator. Major Monogram is also shown singing it once, before Perry enters the briefing room. ("Candace's Big Day") The song is also on the Phineas and Ferb Album as track 7.

Background Information

  • Among the languages listed in the commercial is "Tag Log". One of the languages spoken in the Philippines is Tagalog, so this may be a spelling mistake or a parody.
  • The full version of this song can be heard of the Phineas and Ferb Soundtrack, while a shorter version excluding the first verse can be heard in the "Prance Askance Execution" game on the Phineas and Ferb: The Fast and the Phineas DVD. The full version appears in "Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!".
  • Lindana is a parody to Madonna. Lindana is wearing a belt buckle that spells "TOY". Madonna wore one that spelled out "BOY TOY".
  • The six other women's names mentioned in the full version are taken from other songs popular in the 80s. The names refer to "Roxanne" by the Police, "Come On Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners, "My Sharona" by The Knack, "Veronica" by Elvis Costello, "Alison" also by Elvis Costello, and "Donna" by Ritchie Valens. (While "Donna" was originally recorded in 1958, the release of the Ritchie Valens biopic "La Bamba" in 1987 revived its popularity, and also made hits out of the Los Lobos cover versions featured in the movie.) Out of these songs, only "Come On Eileen" is from a one-hit wonder (although The Knack are commonly considered one despite having 3 top 40 hits). "Roxanne" may also refer to the song "Roxanne, Roxanne" by U.T.F.O. that spawned the HipHop "Roxanne Wars" of answer songs in 1984.
  • The title of the song may be a reference of the song Girls Just Want To Have Fun.
  • Even though Linda said that no one remember people who are 1-hit wonders, Lindana is found a lot on the show and her song is heard a lot. Also, the policeman in Flop Starz recognizes her.
  • An instrumental version of the song is heard as the opening music for the game Transport-inators of Doooom!.
  • It is revealed in the episode "Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!" that Linda had never sang this song live. She only lip synched.
