Peaches

Friday. Fourth period economics. We were discussing shifts in the demand curve.

That I passed my high school economics class is a minor miracle. To this day, I'm convinced my econ teacher gifted me that C. So, covering this class has been just as much an education for me. Luckily, Mrs. O has supplied me with all of the lecture slides and assignments, so the kiddos haven't been at a disadvantage. 

We spent a couple days on the topic. They had a chance to practice, and on this Friday, they were going to have a quiz (right after doing a practice worksheet that looked almost exactly like the quiz). So, I was spending some time going over more examples so that they'd be ready for that quiz. 

The question that popped up on the PowerPoint was about peaches and nectarines... 

And the song "Peaches" popped into my head. 

Not for the first time. This was the third time I'd been through this example, so the song had been on a loop in my head for two days. 

Do you think that earworms act like viruses? Do they want to infect as many people as possible? 

In fourth period, I broke. I mentioned the song.

So, of course, now they were curious. 

The song is older than they are. (They were born around 2004.) I was pretty sure they weren't familiar with it. 

I warned them not to look it up. It would get stuck in their heads. But, I don't think my warnings were heeded. 

At least now I'm not humming it alone.

I would recommend (if you are not familiar with the tune) to not click on the video below. You've been warned.

    1. Yeah, I can see how you would have missed it. Your daughters were a bit too young when it came out.

  4. We didn't have a single econ class available to us, so I guess I got off easy.
    I was, however, very familiar with this song.

    1. It's a graduation requirement for us, so there are enough classes available.

    1. There's no such thing as "too old" for a song. But it was rather niche back in the day, so if you weren't listening to alternative in the '90s, you may have missed it.

  9. I haven't heard this song before! it's fun you could introduce the kids to it :) Even if it did get stuck in their heads for a while!

    Hope you have had a lovely weekend :)

  11. I'm surprised that neither the song nor band are familiar to me. As for an ear worm, it might be nice to have one new to me. lol Be well!

    1. It was on regular rotation on the alt rock radio station around where I am. I suspect it wasn't everywhere.
