Remember when I talked about how I spent half my life thinking that Ace of Base and Pearl Jam were the same band?
And remember how the other day I was blog-singing the lyrics to Angel, as in “Shorty your my angel, you’re my darlin’ angel, closer than my peeps you are to me?”
That song was popular right before I graduated high school. I was one of the smallest people in my entire
grade school and I suppose for that reason people found it amusing to both refer to me as “shorty” and sing that song to me. My friend Troy was the instigator of this, randomly serenading me in the hallways with “Shorty your my angel, you’re my darlin’ angel.” Being friends with Troy was kind of like living in a scene from High School Musical. That has nothing to do with anything other than to illustrate that I have fond memories of this song.
I was looking for it on youtube so that I could link it in my blog post and I could not find it anywhere. I was like “this song was really popular, why can I not find it on the internet?” And the reason for that is because do you know who I THOUGHT sang that song?
Wait for it.
Wait for it.
This is the part of the story whereupon relaying it to my husband, he put his face in his hands and shook his head.
Turns out, it’s totally by some person named Shaggy.
Somehow, I had it mixed up with Incubus’s Warning. Which sounds nothing like it. Kind of like how Ace of Base sounds nothing like Pearl Jam.
I don’t know how this happens to me.
