When I’m carting my friends and family all over NJ and NY, there are very few Sirius stations that I’m willing to listen to. One of my favorites is Hits 1, which claims to play Top 40 Hits, but really only plays the top 10 or 12 pop hits of the moment over and over again. If you listen for more than an hour, you’re likely to hear the same song at least 3 times.
This past Thursday, I drove to Long Island and back with my mom and forced her to listen to 300 miles (about 5.5 hours) worth of Sirius Hits 1
and a Jay Z song was on, and a Jay Z song was on, and a Jay Z song was on. Most of the tunes functioned as background noise, but Hot Chelle Rae‘s Tonight Tonight kept catching my attention.
Check it out, and I apologize in advance because YouTube is a douche and won’t let me embed the video without redirecting you to their site. I apologize again because they might even make you watch an advertisement first. (dies)
And after my 3rd or 4th listen to the song, I realized what it kept reminding me of. It sounds like a freak’n Disney Afternoon theme song! As a kid in the early to mid ’90s, there was only one thing on your television set every weekday from 3:00 to 5:00pm. The Disney Afternoon was the shit! It seriously doesn’t get any better than DuckTales, Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears, TaleSpin, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck.
Tonight Tonight is so happy and poppy that it sounds like a cross between the theme to TaleSpin and actual Disney Afternoon theme song. Do you sorta hear it too, or am I just fuck’n crazy?
