Surprising carousel music

July 24th, 2005 (08:53 pm)

Yesterday we went to a hot-air balloon festival. Since the balloons were unable to fly in the (very mild) wind, there was a standard-issue travelling carnival to accompany it. One of the rides was a carousel. At one point, I realized that I recognized the tune playing.

You know, somehow, I don't think a song about causing the end of the world by releasing balloons was an optimal choice for that festival. :-) The only possible excuse is that it was the German version, so maybe the guy playing it didn't realize what he was doing...but somebody had to pick it.

It's an exceptionally popular song with teenagers right now, and most of them have it on their personal playlists. Perhaps it was picked for that reason.

I theorized that it was chosen by a grumpy teenager who didn't like his job doing kiddie rides at the midway.
