When I'm 64

A friend from work recently told me he got caught speeding driving at 64km/h in a 60 zone. Grievances aside on how the government of Victoria is getting away with extra taxation under the guise of safety, his story made this tune go on in my head… 64, 64… Until I realized I was humming to the tune of 64 Zoo Lane, a Saturday morning children TV show. As in, this song:


It wasn’t the first time I caught myself humming tunes to children’s TV shows. Generally speaking, Giggle and Hoot has been the number one hit on the “tunes inside Moshe’s head” chart for a while now, with the main competition coming in from the same duo’s Five Steps to Bed song. The latter has a good excuse, though: it’s rather jazzy, so I have good justification for liking it.
As far as children’s programs are concerned, my favourite is probably Yo Gabba Gabba. Indeed, this morning I woke up with their talent song in my head, so much so that my three year old threatened me to shut up or face the consequences. I can’t help it, though:
What’s your talent
What’s your skill?
What’s your talent?
Everybody’s got one!
My name is Foofa
I have a talent…

P.S. When my son asked me what his talent was, the first thing that came to my head was his cunning ability to wake us up way too early, every morning. He wasn't impressed.
