Earworm mashup

Have you ever wondered what kind of earworm you get from listening to the radio on the way to daycare while the kids are singing loudly in the back seat? No? Well, on the off-chance that you have, here's what's circling around in my head and won't leave:

You say that you're leaving, well that comes as no surprise.....Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, BANANAPHONE!!

Here's what they sound like separately. I can only ask that you imagine what they sound like together. (Or not, if you want to retain your sanity.)

Somehow, I doubt that Blue Rodeo and Raffi will be touring together anytime soon.

Please shoot me now.


  1. I am now off to find something to get that out of my head. Possibly U2, in honor of last night's concert (which I could hear from 4 miles away).

  2. Well, the Blue Rodeo is good, it's the Bananaphone that was annoying. Good luck with the U2, I recommend something from the Joshua Tree.

    A better solution would be to shoot Raffi. That would solve many, many problems.

  4. mashup. you are one f*&^ing cool mom. I had to look that one up.

  5. too funny.

    I reckon blogs should come with Raffi warnings -- like people do with spiders.

  6. 'Bad Timing' and 'Baby Beluga'...?

  7. XUP - If only that were legal, it would solve so many problems.

    meanie - I strive for coolness. I don't hit it often though.

    Nat - I promise, if I ever blog about Raffi again, I'll post a warning at the top of the post.

    Biblio - Good one! How about GNR's "Paradise City" and the Wiggles' "Fruit Salad, Yummy, Yummy"? Honestly, the options are endless.
