You're a waka, waka

So I'm not a big fan of music. Meaning, that I don't really listen to music. I won't recognize the songs played on the radio. I won't know the names of a lot music artists, singers, and their relations.

Like if that topic comes up in a quiz can count on me missing most of the questions.

I mean, I know some of the more basic things in music or pop culture. And I do listen to songs, just not like most people. It's not that I live under a rock or anything. I just, I dunno, don't always listen to music. Sometimes when I listen to a song I hear noise. And I'm the type that gets songs stuck in my head pretty fast and never know the lyrics past the first line of the chorus... so I avoid music cuz it's irritating when you keep singing:

Baby are you down, down, down, down, down
Dowwn Dowwwnnn

Baby are you down, down, down ,down, down
Downnnn, Dowwwnn....Dowwnnn Dowwwnn.....Baby are you down, down, down, down? Dowwwn Dowwwnnn

.......Um..Baby are you...Dowwwnn Dowwwwnnn

SO Yeah that's how songs go for me. I also try to avoid most mainstream music for a bigger reason as well, because of the connotations and themes they usually hold and our religion's disapproval of it.

BUTTTT, yes there is a but to all this..there usually is, lately Shakira's Waka Waka has really grown on me. When I first heard the entire thing I thought it was a pretty lame song.

Now, I just enjoy watching the video...It keeps the memory of the World Cup alive...and I love that. And I use 'waka waka' randomly through conversations. It just always seems to fit RIGHT IN. And for all I know I could be saying, 'idiot idiot' or 'i win, i win' everytime.

By the way, was anyone else ecstatic that Spain won?!!! And basically still is?

It's a pretty freakin amazing feeling when the country you've been rooting for since the very beginning ACTUALLY wins and doesn't just get jinxed by me rooting for it, though usually my jinxing ability is pretty strong ...take the US and Brazil for example
I guess Paul the octopus should be hailed for thankfully being my antagonist and the world's hero. (Yes the world, cuz we all know Dutch supporters wanted Spain to win deep, down inside...just perhaps rrrreally deep down).


Waka waka

To quench all your fears!

Oh and I jinxed all my teams. I was rooting for Mexico, the US, Brazil, and Germany.

We all know how that ended.

I'm happy for Spain, though I admit I was rooting for Holland! :D

Not sure if you've ever seen the Muppet Show, but Waka Waka used to be Fozzie Bear's saying, I can't think of it without thinking of him!
