Laurie Berkner is Stuck in my Head

Laurie Berkner - Under a Shady TreeFor reasons I cannot explain, I have the song “Me and My Energy” by Laurie Berkner stuck in my head. (Note: the actual title appears to be “My Energy.” See? I don’t even know what the damn thing is called.)

It’s been there for three days.

The only lyrics I know are these:

“This is me. This iiis me. This is me, and my ehhhnergeee. This is me. This IIIS me. This is ME and my ehn-ER-gee.”

That’s it. There’s more I think, but I don’t know it. My kids don’t even like Laurie Berkner. I don’t think I know any other songs by Laurie Berkner.

I have nothing against her, I suppose. I think she’s vastly over-rated. She’s not even better than Raffi, although I guess she’s not Canadian, and is therefore at least a little less annoying. And the idea that she’s “hot” is almost disturbing. Dads who think that need to get out more. Or watch some TV that isn’t for kids. She’s not ugly, she’s nice looking. But “hot”? Really?

No matter what else I can say about Laurie, having a song of hers stuck in my head is not something I would choose.  Especially not a part of a song. Over and over and over again.
