STOP! COLLABORATE AND LISTEN!

Posted on Sunday, January 4, 2008

Yes. I have Ice Ice, Baby stuck in my head. No idea why. It can be really annoying to have this song in your head, so I've been trying to use it to my advantage. Like when I want to get all impatient and frustrated with all the fussing and fighting between the boys, I say to myself "Stop!" Then I collaborate with the patient husband by saying, "LISTEN, you need to take over for awhile or I'm gonna hurt somebody." This way, I don't make a fool of myself by yelling and waving my arms around or bursting into tears. I just stop, collaborate and then I say listen. You should totally try it.

Stop. Collaborate and listen. Ice is back with a brand new invention. Somethin' grabs a hold of me tightly...."

Speaking of songs in your head. Miles and Asher and I were grocery shopping the other day and I told them I had a silly song stuck in my head. Miles replied with an exasperated "Well...let it out your mouth, Mommy!" Smart guy, don't know why I hadn't thought of that.

Since I'm guest posting over at Mozi Esme today, I just realized I might be scaring those of you who are here for the first time. So instead of talking about Vanilla Ice, I'll collaborate with Mozi Esme readers by saying, isn't her blog great? If you haven't been there, you should take a peek, friends. Most of the posts are written from the perspective of a one-year-old American girl living in Mozambique. For being so young, little Mozi is an excellent writer. How cool is that?

See you there!

Don't STOP. Don't COLLABORATE. Just LISTEN. Go on over to Mozi Esme. It'll be fun.

I've heard of her blog, but I don't think I've ever clicked over there. I will have to check it out!

Kim said...

Glad I'm not the only one who gets Vanilla Ice stuck in her head. I bet New Kids on the Block and Milli Vanilli get stuck in your head too, don't they? ;)

Shoot I was hoping for the song to be blarring over here. I haven't heard that song in years! It totally rocks...Hubby got into this show last year where sudo-celeb did bull-riding and Vanilla was there...hilarious!
We should do flash back music posts. Pick a day where we each pick a song to "flash back" too. then we can go around and listen to everyones song! That would be SWEE-T!

As long as you aren't trying to do the whole rap thing swinging your arms around, etc. it is okay. And "let it out your mouth"!

I will go check out Mozi. Have a great Sunday!

Thankfully, I do not know the words to that song beyond 'Ice, Ice Baby'. Otherwise, it would now be stuck in my head!

I'll have to check out the blog you mentioned. It sounds interesting. A friend of mine has 2 adopted daughters in Africa she can't get out of the country (they are 2 now and she's been waiting since they were born). It's so frustrating.

This is the worst song EVER to have in your head. And my husband not knowing the words to it makes it even more horrible if HE starts singing it...

That song is an ear worm.

Do you remember how we used to dance to that song? Scary.

Stop. Collaborate and Listen. I like it. I should do it more often too.

Haha! Ironically, I have had that song stuck in my head today too. As a matter of fact, I even had to go and watch the video for old times sake on YouTube! Pathetic, I know!

Annette Lyon said...

I wonder just how many people will end up with that song in their heads today. Count me as one more. Thanks for that. :D

Saw you at Blog Nosh today, too. VERY cool, Heather.

Abra said...

Hey this song FREQUENTLY finds it's way into my head... this and that Insane in the Membrane song :)

Growin' with it! said...

i'm verrrrry curious now to know if you own a pair of parachute pants too?

Oh Boy...Oh Boy...Oh Boy said...

Ok, I loved Vanilla Ice! It was the first concert I ever went to!!!!! I also owned multiple pairs of 'hammer' pants, including a pair of multicolored tie dyed ones! oh my gosh I can't believe I just admitted that!

Going to check out your guest spot.

Betty said...

I love Miles' response. How practical of him. Going to check out your guest posting!

I had vanilla ice stuck in my head for weeks once not too long ago. My kids had no idea what I was trying to sing when I did sing it so we went on youtube to find a video. I played it on repeat forever and it finally left my head. BUT now when I say "stop" to my kids about anything they sing the rest.

I like Weird Al's version better...
Stop! Grab a table and a menu!

Speaking of grabbing a table... let's go out sometime soon! :)

The only cure is to replace it with some new addicting song. Sorry, that's all I've got.

I get the worst songs stuck in my head. Why is that?
