(a polka-dot vest and man oh man …)
I’m actually not so cranky, but I scolded myself earlier for my cranky response to something, and immediately this song was in my head, and the title wasn’t far behind.
This silly song is older than I am, but I remember it getting a significant amount of airtime when I was growing up … further evidence that the sleepy town I grew up in was caught in a 1950s timewarp.
Other songs whose steady rotation during my childhood confirmed for me our firm position in that timewarp:
- “Beep Beep,” the Little Nash Rambler song
- “Peggy Sue”
- “Wake Up, Little Susie”
- “Chances Are”
- “That’ll Be the Day”
(That this is my post for today tells you how sleepy I am.)
