Do You Know

One of the things I love about my husband is that, in addition to his great taste in music, he also has a vast and impressive knowledge of musical cheese.

Last night we were cooking dinner and he started humming a song. It was familiar to me, old, something my parents listened to. What was it? What was it? Then it hit me, and my mouth fell open. That was one of his most impressive - no, his most impressive - foray into the realm of musical cheese.

I said, in awe, "Where did that come from?"

"Someone sent me an email with 'do you know' in the subject line. That song has been stuck in my head for the past 48 hours."


That's my man. I absolutely positively do not know how I can out cheese him on this one. If you are brave, very brave, you can watch the video of the love theme from Mahogany on youtube.

Also, if you are going to be a straight male humming the love theme from Mahogany, you would want to be hot, very hot, in order to pull it off. You can keep humming babe. But, also, if this continues much longer, I am bringing out The Way We Were, memories of the way we were.


  1. So does mine...he came out with this earworm, which I'd managed never to hear in my life before last week:

    I just had to share the misery...

    Oh, and he has an ABBA Gold album. Childhood nostalgia. Thanks, Mom X, for getting a divorce and a sportscar in the seventies and driving around subjecting your son in the back seat to this dreck all the time...

  2. Wait, is this the one that goes "Do you Know the Way to Santa Fe?"

    I love cheesy music - mainly bad 80s rock ballads. I jammed out to "I Wanna Know What Love Is" on the way to work this morning.

  3. Faux,

    My husband was looking over my shoulder when I was reading this and he wanted me to tell you that I Wanna Know What Love Is is not a bad rock ballad. Of course, it is. One of the worst. Which is why it so good.

    Staircase Witch,

    That is classic - I laughed out loud. The video only serves to enhance the cheese. Love it.

    Now I am humming "Do you know the way to Santa Fe" :) Santa Fe, San Jose. It's all good. It will forever now be "Do you know the way to Santa Fe" in my mind.

    My husband was actually singing "do you know where you're going to, do you know the things that life is showing you, where are you going to, do you know? (Diana Ross)

  4. And now I have a mashup of Do You Know the Way to Santa Fe AND I Wanna Know What Love Is stuck in my head. With a smattering of Santa Fe from Rent. It's actually a totally awesome mashup.
