Advantages

There are a lot of advantages to the end of a school year besides the obvious-- that it's almost the end of the school year. The main advantage is that there are hardly any students. And that means that there'll hardly be anyone we have to share the barbecue we're cooking out back with.

It also means that I can play the Oldies station cranked up, because whatever students who did bother to show up are hanging out downstairs by the barbecue. And this meant that there was no one around to laugh at me when I started singing out loud with the Edison Lighthouse's "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes"....



Hey, are you laughing at me?!

Watch the vid again and pay attention to the bass player. He reinforces the obvious fact that it's a lipsynched vid by the fact that he's strumming his bass like a guitar.

I could never laugh at anyone who sings along to anything with a horn section.

Oh, but it's infectious and over quickly.

SamuraiFrog said...

And yes, I know all the words already....

Laughing at you? No, I was too busy singing along. They play this tune at work all the time.

I couldn't laugh. I was singing along, it might completely mess up my out of tune thing....

I loved it!

Yeah.... the mojitos help, but still....

No laughs here. That's a great song!

If you're taking requests, how about "Sweet Pea" by Tommy Roe? One of my faves.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

No dude, I'm laughing WITH you. You believe that, right?

Beth said...

Nope. I'm singing along with you. And chair-dancing!

Oh shit, I know all the words. However in the pre-internetz days I had no idea that the frontman was such a cutie. So this is good.

Great scott, man, you're JUST NOW closing up shop for school? We've been out since mid MAY!!

I like to crank up Tom Waits and The Bulgerian Women's Choir when I'm doing pre-/post-planning. That's one thing I liked about being in a portable this year: no neighbours to bother if I cranked uppa da' toones!
