Perhaps the strangest phone call I’ve ever had…

In case I forgot to mention it, Happy Wedding Birthday to my frewnut-niece and her wacko-navy-husband.

We get home from dinner last night and I find a phone message from her.. I was wondering if you’re going to Jessie’s graduation and.. well… I have something else to ask you… so call me back.. or I’ll call you back… or something…

So, I call her number back and get Dennis, who answers, “What’s up, hooker?” Now, Dennis, you know I don’t charge!

Anywho.. the question, asked vicariously through Dennis as Angela was driving at the moment, was:
“So what was the name of that other band in Purple Rain, not Prince’s guys, but the other ones.. the Jungle Love guys?”
Um.. Morris Day and the Time?
“She says that’s it, but what was their other song.. the one they did the bird dance to?”
Um.. I think it’s just called “The Bird”
“Yeah, okay, but how does it go? She wants you to sing a few bars….”

Well, after a little Gnutella search by JamesT we can now confidently answer:

Brock! Hallelujah! Whoa-oh-oh-oh!

and we even have the dance remix version. Aren’t you jealous.

As it turns out, Dennis has been so deprived as to have never seen Purple Rain, whereas Angela and I have stories about getting in trouble for watching it so many times when we were both too young for the R-rating. I wonder if sis remembers that…
