I am stunned

I just turned on VH1 Classics and saw a video of the Beach Boys singing "California Dreamin'." You know, all these years I've been thinking the Dead Milkmen made a mistake in "Punk Rock Girl," the third verse of which features these lyrics:

And someone played a Beach Boys song
On the jukebox
It was "California Dreamin'"
So we started screamin'
"On such a winter's day"

But now I find it was I who was mistaken. My world has been turned upside down.

Speaking of cover songs, I was inspired to change over to VH1 Classics when VH1 Mega Hits started playing that new Britney Spears cover of "My Prerogative." Man, what a terrible song. The Bobby Brown original was no prize pig, but the Spears version... oy with the poodles already. Britney, what did we do to make you want to punish us so?
