Moonwalkin to the Oldies: Tunes To Clean House To

Scurryfunge: to run around frantically cleaning your home when you know guests will be arriving shortly. (Thank you Slang Teasers, a game I played one summer at the lake. This word has always stuck and I use it often) I’m scurryfunging tonight. Getting ready for the iminant arrival of my MIL and FIL.

I was just listening to my new (to me) FakePodTM and cleaning. Cheap Bastard just got a Nano with our Air Miles, so he passed down his RCA Mp3 player to me. I was just doing the worm and break-dancing around the kitchen and thought I’d share my songlist with you…my NEW AND IMPROVED songlist (and yes, I’m lame. And yes, my music is lame. Blame it on the eighties and the fact that I always wore my legwarmers too tight):

Styx: Domo Arigato Clean-o the Tub-o

ELO: You Gotta Sweep Fast (sweep fast), Sweet Talkin Woman

Chicago: Scrub Me Now (shut up! I’m old and pathetic and yes I really do have Chicago loaded up on this thing)

Howard Jones: Things Will Only Get Cleaner

Beastie Boys: No Sleep Til Dusted

Chicago:…oh forget it, how many damned Chicago songs did I put on this thing anyways? I. Suck.

Depeche Mode: Mommies are People so how could it be, mommies can clean the house so thoroughly?

Chicago:…seriously? Three in a row? I am literally beating myself with a spatula right now.

Talk Talk (re-recorded by Cheap Bastard): It’s my wife. Don’t you forget it. It’s my wife. She cleans real goooood!
