Ear Worm

Disney knows how to do an ear worm. You know, those songs like It's A Small World that just run around and around and around in your head no matter what you do.

My 3 girls love the Disney channel, it's pretty much all they watch when they watch TV. That's OK with me as it's mostly clean, harmless entertainment and there are no real commercials for stuff that they have got to have, except Disney movies and stuff, of course. But that means that I spend a fair amount of my time with Disney music in my head.

This song from Radio Disney and the Disney Channel has been hounding me all day long. Nothing too special, just a very well done pop tune. The lyrics are the cool part:

I've been to the year 3000
not much has changed but they lived under water.
And your great great great grand daughter,
is doing fine (is doooin fine).

Fun nonsense lyrics like so many songs of the 80's like Our House, Whip It and that Blondie song about the alien that eats guitars which I can't remember the name of. I love those kind of songs, anyone else?

Love them. Actually went to a DEVO concert when I was in college (Christian college) and had a t-shirt from it. Everyone just thought they were a Christian music group or something. Aren't they from Ohio?

I'm gald to hear that boy bands are still around in 3000

Devo, from Ohio? I dunno.

Emily and I just figured out a problem with those lyrics. Not enough greats.

Assuming 1,000 years until the year 3,000 and roughly 25 years between generations that third line should really be:

And your great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grand daughter,

Of course, there are a couple too many syllables. :-P

Per Wikipedia - they were from Akron.

I think you're talking about "Rapture" by Blondie.

I love that video! And the lyrics get stuck in my head too!
