Hair Bands and Muppets

For like the last week I’ve had two songs stuck in my head. The first is “When the Children Cry” from 80s hairband White Lion. Probably because of VH1’s recent “I Love the 80s” marathon where the song was featured on a glamrock ballad compilation at every commercial break. The second song is “Let’s Go Ride in a Car” from the Sesame Street Sings Karaoke DVD. Probably because Samantha loves it and listens to it as often as we’ll let her.

The thing is, I sometimes have both of these songs in my head at the same time, resulting in something like this:

When the children cry
Let them know we tried
Then let’s go driving in an automobile
Let’s take a ride in a car
Beep, be-beep, be-beep,
Beep, beep, beep,
Beep, be-beep, be-beep, beep
Beep, be-beep, be-beep,
Beep, beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep.

It’s driving me freaking crazy.
