The Song That is Driving Me Crazy Now...

~ Posted on Monday, August 2, 2010 at 11:40 AM ~

I've been listening to this song wayyyyyyyyy too many times lately...

And it is driving me crazy!!!

And its alll thanks to my mischievous little boy...

I don't know what's with him but he is totally ga-ga over Beatle's "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" song!

Listening to it for a few times is bearable at first...

And then Ben gets annoying smarter...

He started hinting and signalling to us when he wants us to replay the song.

Right after the song ended (I normally play from Youtube as I've already bookmark the song site on my fave song list), Ben will look at us, left hand clutching his right hand and looked back at our computer. Then he will wait for us to click 'Replay'. If we don't do anything, he will repeat the hand holding gesture, until we replay the song. And this will go on a couple more times until we diverted his attention to something else.

I've uploaded the video of Ben listening to the song into my newly created Youtube account, feel free to go over and check out Ben's hand signals and be amazed!

For those of you who can't view Youtube or are just lazy to go over and check it out, below are some of the snapshots of a video I took of Ben listening to the song and then signalling to me to replay the song when it ended.

This was a few seconds before the song ended...

Saw that hand signal?

Ben shoved his right arm closer to my face when I pretended not to see his hand signals...

Still holding on... and waiting for me to click replay...

This is what I get when he gets frustrated after I ignored him again...

He really shoved his hands closer to my face to prove his point...

I ended up replaying the song cos he started to press and smack my laptop keys...


I really gotta look for new songs to change Ben's 'addiction' to this Beatle song! Any suggestions?

Maybe you should get him some c.d on children song. One that he could watch on t.v. My sons used to sing a long and dance in front of the t.v when they were your son's age. At least to keep him occupy. Have a nice day.

Hi Aries!
We do have some CD and DVD of children's songs and games but he doesn't seem interested in kiddy songs... Thanks for your suggestion!


"Yellow Submarine."  When he starts wanting to hear that one over and over, you'll wish for "I Want To Hold Your Hand" again.

Hi Katie!
I like Beatles too but not too much of it! Now, when I'm in front of my laptop with him on my lap, he does his hand signals... sigh... Thanks for dropping by and commenting btw! Laughing
