Reel Big Fish’s cover of Toots and the Maytals’ “Monkey Man” has become the Stewart household’s unofficial theme song. It is now impossible to put it on without my children beginning to dance, spin and generally cavort. Will occasionally even spontaneously bursts out in choruses of “Ai-Ai-Ai! Ai-Ai-Ai! / Talkin’ ’bout de big Monkey Man!”.
I’m working on teaching them to do the Midget Punch, Modified Running Man and generalized skankin’, though it may take awhile before they catch on. They mainly like spinning in place and jumping up and down — an appropriate response, given the song, I suppose.
