On days when I repeatedly tell my sons to put their shoes on, it’s time to go, and they give me the “make me” look, I listen to “My Name Is Jonas” from Weezer’s Blue album. The song is about a guy who’s losing it, probably from taking too many drugs. While I can’t relate to the cause of his dilemma, I sure can emphasize.
Here is my favorite verse from the song:
My name is Wepeel
I gotta box full of your toys
They're fresh out of batteries
But they're still makin' noise (makin' noise)
Battery-free toys still making noise—to me, that aptly describes a rattled mind. Plus, my sons actually have a few battery-operated toys that make noise even when I think they are turned off. Scary.
