How Did I Know That?

The commercial for the sacred Prius, beloved of the green folks, has a background theme with the lyrics 'ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba". It is bouncy and chirpy, like many of the green folks --at least when they are not preaching at or hectoring the rest of us with their higher religious values.

But I have suspected from first hearing that it is not American music. For some reason, it has such a mindlessly and dicklessly Europop sound, I thought it might be Dutch. Turns out I was wrong.

It's Swedish. Done by a band called Suburban Kids with Biblical Names and it's called "Rent-A-Wreck".

I am impressed with my musico-cultural intuition. And I hate the song.
