I'll Have Applesauce By Lady GaGa - 10/03/13
Normally, it's our kids who say the funniest things. I'm always quick to jot down their remarks, yet not so quick to transfer it to their baby books (some day.) Like the time my son asked, "Mom, when's Santa coming?" Me: "Soon, Christmas is right around the corner." Son: "Well mom, just where is that corner?" Or the time my daughter said, "I think I'm going to invent something to take away taxes and the babble heads on the radio." (Apologies to my dear radio friends. :) )
So, the other day we're all riding in the car on the way to school. This is our little tradition. We ALL ride together to drop off the kids each morning, even the dog, Cottonball (also known as Moony Moony, Wiggles, Antler, JuJu, Gertrude, Mildred, & Cot Cot.) She's got to be having an identity crisis. Anyway, hubs always throws on a hat to cover his bed head. I grab a jacket to cover my pj's. (Lord help us if we ever get in a wreck.)
On the way, the kids like to listen to pop, of course. They say it wakes them up and gets them motivated for school. This little infusion of pop in our lives has really awakened us too, though hubs has been slower to catch on. Keep reading----
On this particular day, the 'babble heads' were taking a breather and we actually got to hear a song. None other than Lady Gaga pops up. The title of the song and the artist are displayed on the little screen and my husband jokingly with an edge of sarcasm says, "Applesauce! Where has this song been all my life?"
But the joke was on him. My daughter retorts with all of her 8 year old wisdom, "Dad, it's Applause, not Applesauce. This is Lady Gaga. Can you not read?"
Not only, is Applause the lead single off her new album ARTPOP, but it also became her 12th top 10 single in the US. Applause even went number one in Lebanon, Greece, South Korea, Hungary and Spain. So, why have they all heard of it, but we haven't?
Sorry Dad, no applause or applesauce for you! ;)
