Because Fish Love The English Beat

The Goon Squad is in the bath tub playing with their little plastic fish. Claudia is making her fish jump around like crazy.

Claudia: Look Mommy! My fish are rockin’ out!

Me: Very nice. What are song they dancing to?

Claudia: Mirror in the Bathroom.

Of course, because deep down inside don’t all fish rock out to The English Beat?

  1. I wish I had kids that were this cool…

    OK, wait…I’m not ready for kids. But if I were, and I had them, I could only hope they were this cool.

    I’m just sayin’…

  2. That is hilarious! I think that your kids know more about music than me!

  3. Of course they do. Either that or Maiden.

  4. I love that they were “rockin’ out.”

  5. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    Wow. That’s pretty eclectic for someone that wasn’t around to appreciate it in the 80s. Every time I think of that song now, I recall the scene in Grosse Pointe Blank where John Cusack is beating the snot out of the assassin next to his old high school locker. Such a great flick.

  6. I think it’s a pretty apt choice. They were in the bathroom after all. You’re lucky those kids haven’t taken over the world yet.

  7. well your kids are officially cooler than most. Wow. Now I’m humming that and thinking of Gross Point Blank all day.

  8. ha! zoe loved that song when she was 4…we heard it at ikea the other night too!

  9. Yummmmm. John Cusack.

  10. This is my favorite post of yours I’ve ever read. EVER. That your daughter would, first of all, assert that her fish are “rockin’ out” is awesome in and of itself. That your daughter would then state that the song to which they are rockin’ out is “Mirror in the Bathroom” is too rad for words.

  11. Too cute!! How much fun is that?

  12. The English Beat, one of my favorite bands of the 80’s. I need to get my son to listen to different things other than the standard songs by Laurie Berkner and friends.

  13. I guess the bathroom theme is apropos, but I’d think that some of the fish might be rankin’ full stop to the sonic stylings of Fishbone.

  14. I confess….that’s good tunes!

    It’s good to have the kids listening to other stuff, besides having a pig on their head.
