And because it bothered me for nigh on 24hrs, I’m going to save you the trouble… ‘Cos, you know, you’re going to strike EXACTLY the same problem I did… Um… Yeah… probably not. But, I’m going to share, anyway, because I care.
So, yesterday, I was getting a little help with entertaining my son from Youtube. He loves the “Mahna Mahna” song, so we often have that repeating over and over and over and over… You get the idea. Anyway, sometimes he wants to go off the tangents that Youtube suggests at the end of the video, That’s fine, it’s all Muppets and Barney and stuff… Often, it’s Animal drumming! Which is great. Toddler does love drums. Which is cool – his dad plays them. Anyway… We ended up playing this video:
Neat little number… funny, and all that. But… right at the very start the guys says “Do you expect me to play this, man?” And I’m like: “I’ve heard that. In a song…. But which song? Gah! Which song? What song was it?! Aaaaarrrrghhh!” Yeah. Something like that. All I could hear in my head was that quote… no backing music to help me… nada.
Somewhere around 20 hours later, and who knows why… but there it is… hijacking my brain… that line “Do you expect me to play this, man?”… and guess what? There is music to go with it… I know the song immediately! Problem solved. I am happy.
And no, most of you guys will never have this problem… this is Kiwi band, Supergroove… ~2mins7sec in, you will hear the quote above… I’m guessing sampled directly from The Muppets…
My work here… is done.
**Ah… and that’s a sample of Miss Piggy, earlier… wow. I’ve been familiar with this song for so long and I never knew…
