Cultural Literacy?

The other day in class I had The Monkees’ “I’m a Believer” playing on the stereo, and one of the students asked me “Who screwed up the song?”

At first I was going to laugh, but then I noticed the question was sincere. I realized he was referring to the new Smashmouth version from the film Shrek.

I felt very, very old.

P.S. I heard a rap song using the beat from “Stand By Me.” Ugh!
