Backseat Banter: Part III

Upon hearing the readily distinguishable first synthesized notes of "Billie Jean"....

Mommy (turning up the radio, anticipating an anti-drug talk): "Oh, this is a Michael Jackson song...."

Darren
(with ill-founded pride): "Thriller!"

Sarah (not at all confident, but rightly convinced her brother was wrong): "Beat It?"

Mommy (seeing my propyphol awareness opportunity fading fast): "No..."

Darren (playing his last card): "Leave Me Alone?"

Sarah: "ABC?"

Darren (unacquainted with the Jackson Five version, only preschool) "Seriously Sarah? No way is this
A-B-C!"

Mommy: "You're both wrong. This is song is called 'Billie Jean.'"

After the song continued and conversation strayed for about a minute....

Sarah:
"Are you sure this isn't Beyonce?"

Too funny! I suppose Michael sounded a little like Beyonce in that song. All the songs mentioned are greats!
