But I was surprised at what it was that he was singing. And (surprisingly) not because it was bad or inappropriate.
Nor was it "What Does the Fox Say?" (Thank the Lord for that!)
So I asked him, "Where did you hear that song?"
10yo: From Raving Rabids.
I should have known.
Me: Do you know what it's called?"
I prepared to drop some knowledge on the PBA. They love it when I do that. They may not admit it but we all know it's true.
10yo: Not a clue.
Me: It's called "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go". It was originally done by a band named Wham! in 1984.
I remembered this because I got it on cassette tape. Along with the Ghostbusters soundtrack.
(When we got home, I Googled it just to make sure I remembered correctly: "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" came out in May 1984 and Ghostbusters came out in June of the same year. Boo-yah...I was right.)
10yo: "Oh...so then that song is about 30 years old? Wow..."
Me: Well I suppose you could look at it that way if you wanted to. Which I don't...
So here it is...because I know you're already singing it in your head. Feel free to sing along.
