Next on the Playlist, G&R's "One in a Million"

Effluvia

I took the kids to brunch at our favorite local diner this morning. They usually have classic rock playing from a jukebox. Today they had a 40's music CD going.

I had never previously heard "Bongo Bongo Bongo I don't want to leave the Congo" played in a non-ironic fashion. (I know if from Fallout 3, where its use is definitely satirical.) Several people nearby were looking incredulously at the jukebox. Even the kids thought it was odd. "Daddy," asked Evan, "Is he saying 'bongo bongo bongo?"

    Yeah, I know it from Fallout 3 as well. I don't think I'd ever be able to hear it without immediately associating it with battling for my life against some creature or Super Mutant out in the wastes or in a dark, underground tunnel.
