One of those "have to be there" moments. But, I caught the wife's head sticking around the kitchen wall looking at me with one of "those" looks.

I was only goofing around and randomly started playing the theme to "The Banana Splits". I just stopped and said "What?"

All she said was "Really?"

Ahh.. Being married for years and the evolution of communication..

Anyway.. Gonna finish my Banana Splits tune now.. ;)

Well, you know...


Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more....

A few years back the (now closed) local Borders music section was playing a CD of Saturday Morning Cartoon theme songs, performed by modern artists (I think the B-52s did the Flintstone Theme, for example), and when the Banana Splits theme came on, I started singing along... then so did my wife, and a couple of other couples who will never see their 30's again...

The kids at the counter just stared, slack-jawed....

I think we were a little loud, or something.

BWAAA-HAAA - I live to embarrass my children - that's the only true revenge a parent can have on their children, after all!

You can play the song with a I / IV I chord progression on the verse, and a IV I IV I / IV I IV V I progression on the chorus:

One banana, two banana, three banana, four

Over hill and highway the banana buggies go
