The Vengaboys have taken over my bathroom and do they like to party.

There are some things going on in the background with school that has left me with an empty, hollow feeling.  I will eventually write about them but right now, its not the time.  Right now I've been subjected to listening to an old song brought out of retirement thanks to He Who Shall Not Be Named.

First things first, go down there and hit play on the YouTube video.  Trust me, this whole post goes better with music and alcohol and a mallet to beat some sense into the idgets at our school.  Crap, I digress...

Anyway, we have this thing we do every night with our showers.  Namely, we load all three kids in our shower and let 'em rip.  We turn some music on and they have a blast.  It makes it a little more palatable listening to music while you're telling your eight year old not to miss his pits and don't forget to scrub between your legs.  

I've talked about music before.  Alex loves to listen to music.  He even has an app that allows him to create musical scores.  Of course I'm trying to crank out this post at six AM so I'm making the bold move of skipping the links to my other posts about music.

I AM THAT LAZY.

Anyway, to say Alex loves music would be a massive understatement.  That would be akin to saying I like Diary Queen.  Hell, I love Dairy Queen.  I'll even hook for Dairy Queen, ask my husband.  Not that its really considered hooking when your married but rest assured if he brings home a DQ Blizzard, he's getting laid.  Boy bloggers of the world, take note.

Anyway, he loves music.  We're no strangers to repetitive listening.

We have one particular song that Alex had fallen in love with.  He loves it and I'm stuck with it so I try to make the best of it.    

I give you the Vengaboys.


I've been listening this full blast every night during shower time.  Every night for the the last few months the Vengaboys have been ear-raping me.

Every Single Night.

For Months.

MONTHS.

I thought, "Why listen alone?  You all should be privy to this song just once."

And just so you know, you're getting off easy.  We listen to all the other Vengaboys songs because in our house, we go down hard.  They've take up residence in my master bathroom like a bad fungus and they won't leave.

So there you have it.  If you're wondering what I'm doing every night from 7:30 to 8:00, I'm having a shower party and getting ear-raped by the Vengaboys.  

And now that I've seen the video I have a whole new dance routine to get started on.  At minimum, I can get busy with neon, I hear its coming back in style...


Note: if you are dying to listen, and I know you are, to other Vengaboys songs, when the Up and Down video is over you can click on more.  Our other heavy hitters are We Like to Party and Shalalalala.  The Vengaboys, ear-raping generations for years.  Go on, you know you wanna.

    1. Unfortunately the Venga buss ran me over, backed up and ran me over again. And then they parked the damn buss over my dead body.

  7. That was not only completely devoid of any real music (made by instruments), it was also a visual assault. Why do you even know of this group?? They shouldn't even be on your radar, unless you're 16 and going to a rave party.

    That being said, the school has introduced the children to Party Rock, by LMFAO. I am not LMFAO, as I have heard this way too many times to want to LMFAO when I hear those tired lyrics again.

    If you want to mix it up with something equally annoying, but slightly more amusing, might I suggest "Kitty" by Presidents of the USA??

    Go on, youtube it.

    1. NO, I will not go over there and look that up. I won't do it. (You totally know I will. Damn you Flannery!)

      LMFAO is a whole other ear-rape. God, that one gets old after at least 10 rotations. And I was over it the day after Thanksgiving.

      And I think I did hear that song at a rave when I was like, 18 or something. It was right up there with the Pet Shop Boys and Depeshe Mode. I'm old.

  8. Ear-rape, indeed. Holy hell, Woman! So many questions: why the old dude? Why is the dred chic making love to her own face? Why, why, WHY would anyone willingly subject themselves to this?!

    1. I don't know why the old dude, he looks like my FIL. And, YES, that creeps me out. And I don't get why the dude tries to take a bite out of her ankle. Don't get that at all.

  22. There's a Vengaboys CD somewhere in this house, thanks for my eldest *grits teeth at memory* - and remember that I have listened to Britney's 'Hit me baby one more time' every day for the past 10 years, thanks to Smiley!

  23. oh, DAIRY QUEEN. I'm so sorry for your ears but LORD I could eat a chicken strips basket with texas toast. Damn, damn North Carolina. Hope your issues with school improve (or they realize they're total asses) - been reading here for the last year or so and it keeps me, well, sane.
