So, my daughter and I were at Target and there was this copy of Short Circuit for $5 and, since she liked Wall-E and I am a whore for nostalgia, I picked it up. And it was good. But then Number 5 turns on the radio and, within 3 notes, I am jumping up on the couch, squealing and clapping my paws together. It’s this song, which I used to LOVE when I was 8, but had totally forgotten since and now, by a twist of Target sales policy, suddenly said, “Hello Count, how have you been?” after 20 years when it could just as easily have never revisited me again. Yes, the video is awful (though I would KILL to have that Steve Guttenberg cutout), but damn if those sorts of moments aren’t awesome.
