    Speaking of Learning to Fly, I'm not so sure Dave didn't swipe that one from my favorite Dallas band



    I thought it was the other way around until.recently. Plus, their guitar player is a self avowed Old 97s fan.

    But yeah, @poinoup , My Hero is a station changer for me. It's not BAD. It's just, aggressively mediocre. It's what I'm AFRAID some of my own songs sound like to other people.

    Best "celebrity" band is definitely Ryan Gosling's Dead Man's Bones.

    Ok..... ok..... I'm seriously about to lose my mind.

    This is now the 6th day in a row I've woken up with You Can Call Me Al stuck in my head... just groggily waking and rampaging through my skull are the lyrics "you can be my bodyguard I can be your long lost pal!" and "with some roly-poly bat-faced girl" and "I need another shot at redemption, where's my FUCKING BULLSHIT FUCK YOU PAUL SIMON I FUCKING HATE YOU

    maybe you secretly like it and itís now your theme song.

    eta: i think ďcall me alĒ is better than most of the songs in toddler shows. thereís nothing like waking up in the middle of the night, trying to go back to sleep and having the paw patrol theme stuck in your head. even worse was mickey mouse clubhouse. oh toodles lived in my brain for at least two years. the only good theme song was miles from tomorrowland but my kids didnít really get into that show. beat bugs was cool for a minute but i was never a big beatles fan. i did really enjoy watching my kids figure out which beatles songs they liked and didnít like.

    TMBG did a version of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme, it's on one of their kid CDs as a bonus track.

    It's just that the words are so mindless but seem to be implying something? I feel like if I could just figure out what the hell he means when he says "I could call you Betty" is all about, but I don't think that's going to happen... I honestly feel like if I could just get away from the mindlessness there...

    EDIT: Oh my god... I just looked it up, and it's even worse than anything I could have imagined...

    The famously funny yet enigmatic chorus, Simon said, came from a funny memory of going to a party at the New York apartment of Pierre Boulez, the conductor-composer. Simon and his first wife Peggy arrived, meeting their host at the door, who evidently had no clue who they were. Boulez introduced them to his guests as “Al and Betty.”

    It was the first single from Graceland, and became a hit, launched by the famous music video with Chevy Chase.
