Year 5, Day 245: Name That Song 5!

As we were driving to get dinner, Miles requested some music. “You know that song ‘I Want a Mom’?”

“Uhhhh…” I’ll admit, I was already sweating. I did NOT know the song he was talking about, and he has very little patience when asked to repeat or explain himself further. Negative patience, in fact. But I had no choice — I was going to have to ask him for clarifying information.

“I don’t think I do,” I chuckled, trying desperately to keep the mood light. “‘I Want a Mom’…?”

“Yeah!” he said, thankfully not screaming it at me. “You know it! It’s the song you played before.”

Still at a loss.

“And the beginning sounds like a drink? Like, SWSSSSHHH…”

This was already one of those times where the more information I got, the MORE confused I was. The beginning sounds like a drink? What does that mean?

“Anything else you can tell me about it?” I asked, increasingly worried that his next words would emerge in the form of, at best, a whine.

“It goes ‘I want a mom’,” he reiterated, adding, “…with a jacket.”

AH! I was pretty sure I had it at this point. Do YOU know what he was talking about?

Go ahead, take a guess.

Last chance…

It was this one:

Most of what he was talking about comes together once you recognize the song, but what the heck was that “the beginning sounds like a drink” thing? Well that was Miles describing the sound of a vibraslap.
