fripodding and carwashing: “car wash” – rose royce


Today’s friPod special will be short and sweet, due to the ridiculously nice weather outside, and my laziness for not writing this entry earlier. Plus I have my usual friDay lunch date I never like to be late for because the blood thirsty dragons eat my food when I’m not there. But, that’s another story.

I picked this song for Sam, my car, whom I thought I’d be trading in this weekend. Heck, the weekend isn’t over yet… but there is more bird fecal matter than I’d like to see and probably in places I’m not even aware of. So perhaps a proper bath is in order as Sam and I continue to ride out together. At least before it gets cold again. Let me just throw in… the economy sucks.

But let’s talk about the song Car Wash! And yes, it is a popular movie from back in the 70’s. I’ve seen it once way back when I was a wee movie watcher. Of course, at that age, I didn’t really know what I was watching. I just laughed when everyone else did. But I was aware of the song way before I knew about the movie.

What’s great about the song is it makes working at a car wash sound like it’s the best job ever. But when you go to a car wash, do you ever see these happy excited people? Do you even hear the song being played? Probably not. But no worries, it’s still a fun song and I’d probably play it if I were washing my own car at home. Certainly I could do that today, but I’d rather spend time being dry. Don’t call me a party pooper, I just have different standards of fun.

And don’t let my feelings on staying dry keep you from wanting to party down while washing your car (or getting you car washed) and you want a little splish splash too. Totally a funky song for the funky times back then. I also know this because it was a track on my Pure Funkalbum. Remember those commercials? I’d YouTube it for you… but like I said, this is supposed to be short.
