No, You Will Not Let This Go

| PA, USA | Learning | April 21, 2015

(I’m a high school junior. My school runs a five-minute student news show. There are two crews to run the show, and they alternate weeks. I’m on one crew. We play a song picked by a student during the closing credits. This happens not long after ‘Ice Ice Baby’ by Vanilla Ice came out. It uses the same melody as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Queen. My crew is off.)

Crewmate: *hears song* “Cool! They’re playing Ice Ice Baby!

Me: *listening to lyrics* “No, it’s not. It’s Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Crewmate: “No, it’s Ice Ice Baby.”

Me: “No, it’s Bohemian Rhapsody.”

(We go back and forth for a few moments. Finally…)

Me: “Let’s see what the credits say.”

(They come up, and, sure enough, it’s Bohemian Rhapsody.)

Me: “Told you so.”

Crewmate: *truly surprised* “Wow, really? I never heard of it.”

(He was a freshman. What can I say?)
