OK. Has this ever happened to you? You're working out at the Y, zoning out to make the time go faster. Only 55 more minutes of step class left, what can my brain do to make the time pass more quickly? Your mind wanders around and goes AHAAA!

Camper Van Beethoven is a play on words! It's camper van+ludwig van.

I've know of this band for, let's see, 20 years or so.

I'm so dumb.

I didn't know who they were so I had to check them out. I discovered they are the ones who did a cover of this.....the beginning riff is the ONLY thing I could ever play on the guitar.

(I couldn't embed the video in the comments)

I don't know how to make the tinyurl work. Is it the Ozzy song, Matchstick men?

I wanted to find a Youtube video of CvB doing their cover of Vince Guaraldi's Charlie Brown Theme (I know it has another title, but I can't think of it) but I couldn't find a video of it. It's really a great version.

It took me until some time in adulthood to catch the double entendre in "Come on Eileen". I felt so dumb when it dawned on me. D'oh.
