Manic Monday #10 Challenge – Things that Make you go Hmmm

For those that enjoy challenges, and if you like music… you might have some fun with this.  It’s called Manic Monday.  Welcome to the 10th installment!

Each week, I’ll present a new song title, and you come up with a post using it by next Sunday. Ping back to this post, so others can read!  Often times, I release the title the weekend prior so you have plenty of time!

It can be fiction/non-fiction, poetry, subject can be dark, serious or humorous – however many characters you want- just have fun with it!  It doesn’t have to pertain to the song, whatsoever. (click here for past song titles)

The rules are…there are no Rules!  (except using the title of the song part)

We are now working our way through the Alphabet of artists/bands. We’re on letter C, and it reminded me of the C+C Music Factory. This song “Things that make you go Hmmm,”  was greatly played on the radio during my young adult days, and the music video was fun.  It still makes me laugh, and I love the design of it,  the people + drawings, like chalk.  It was released in 1991, and and got its idea from the Arsenial Hall show, one of his regular skits!  Who remembers that late night show?  I enjoyed it on occasion.  More info on


Use that song title anywhere in your blog post, ping back this post! (visit others that posted, if you want) If you need more inspiration, you can Click here for lyrics

Camel Walk meets Peter Gunn

Now, this Camel Walk is the kind of dancing I can DO.  And I can walk like an Egyptian too… I don’t know what made me think of this song the other day, but it’s a funky, twangy tune.  Reminds me of Art of Noise/Duanne Eddy  (see the video below)  LOVE IT … and one day, I was like “Whew, little Debbie, little Debbie…”

… where did that come from, where on Earth would I get that phrase, it had to originate somewhere…

GOOGLE is my friend, because I would never had known a band called Southern Culture On the Skids.  That would never, ever, come to mind or their song CAMEL WALK.

There’s so many endearing qualities to this video/song.  Although this song is from 1995, the beehives remind me of one of my favorite 80’s bands The B52s that mimicked the 60’s.  There are bits of a movie inter-twined with the music video and I love Patricia Arquette and Ben Stiller, the 1996 movie Flirting with Disaster.  I’m not familiar with those scenes, but they perfectly go with the music video.  I’ll have to watch that movie now on Netflix.

Above I mentioned how Camel Walk reminds me of the Art of Noise (featuring Duanne Eddy), the Peter Gunn theme.  So, I watched that video for the first time ever, and never knew HOW Funny, it was…
