Kepi - Days That End In "Y" . My favorite song when it comes to Elliot. I love being a parent sometimes...

So a little fact about me before I start getting into this blog. When I was younger, my really cool cousin, Greg, got me interested into punk rock music. Not all kinds of it, but a lot. I am not really into the whole Nazi Punk scene, but I love more bands like the Ramones, Rancid, early Green Day stuff, The Mr. T Experience, and especially The Groovie Ghoulies.

The Groovie Ghoulies did songs kind of like the "Monster Mash" oldies song. Not really about actually being scary and dark, but more happy go lucky Ramones style punk rock. I love that the songs are super catchy and fun, almost like a childlike innocence to them. It is also noteworthy to point out that their lead singer/bass player was a guy, and the lead guitarist was his wife, along with a female drummer. They were one of a kind. They have been broken up for a little while now, but Kepi, their lead singer, still writes music with the same style.

Anyway, I usually catch Kepi when he plays live here in Salt Lake from time to time. The last time he came through town, he had a new CD called "Kepi for Kids". A few were original songs, and a few were Groovie Ghoulies songs that he slowed down and played them more geared towards kids. One thing to mention before you go all crazy and start looking up their stuff on Youtube, Kepi does have a different kind of voice. It is fun with the music and everything, but his voice is pretty distinct. Anyway I posted this blog because I wanted to show off this one song on the CD. I got the video off of Youtube, and it is basically my theme song to Elliot. Kinda cheesy, I know, but still. here are the lyrics if you want to follow along with the song, or just read them for fun..

The song is called "Days That End in "Y".

I love you everyday that ends in "Y"

You can ask, but I can't tell you why,

You make my little heart just flutter and fly.

I love every day that ends in "Y"

Monday is our fun day,

Teusday lose the blues day,

Wednesday is best friends day,

Thrusday his and her day

Friday you're the apple of my eye day

Saturday you really matter day

Sunday you're my number one day

And that leads us back to Monday.

(second time through only) And if they add a new day, then I will love you too, yay!

I love you every day that ends in "Y"

You can ask, but I can't tell you why,

You make my little heart just flutter and fly.

I love you every day that ends in "Y".

Then it repeats because all kids songs repeat everything just sang, lol,

Anyway, I just had to write a blog about it. If you want to know more about Kepi or the Groovie Ghoulies, just let me know, and I will give you more information than you would probably want, lol.
