Get Out Of My Head!


Have you ever had a song stuck in your head?

Have you ever had a song stuck in your head for a really long time?

I have.  I have it all the time!  Every day, at any moment, there is a song running through my head.   Not just any song, either.  There are 2 songs specifically.  Non-stop.

Why?  I have no clue.  They have been there for as long as I can remember.  Most of time I have no idea I am humming them or singing them, until someone points it out.  They are just there, running over and over on an infinite loop.

Up until recently, I didn’t even know what one of them was.  It just a little ditty or jingle I thought I had made up.   Wrong!  One day I just couldn’t take it anymore, so Ron and I sifted through tons and tons of YouTube videos of old kids shows trying to find it.  Somehow I knew it was some old Hanna-Barbera show.  Finally, we found it.

So what are these songs you ask?  What songs could be in my pretty little head?

Well the lucky songs are the Speed Racer theme song and The Banana Splits theme song!  Both from the late 60’s!  Check out the YouTube videos if you aren’t familiar.

Do what?  The late 60’s??  I was just a twinkle in my parents eye in the late 60’s.  I do remember watching these shows as a kid.  However, I would have never guessed they would have made such an impression on me.

I can’t explain it, but there they are.  So, next time you see me, ask me what the song of the day is…..guaranteed, it will be one of these.

Speed Racer

The Banana Splits
