The Horror Honeys: Spooky Kid Saturday Jam ~ 'The Goonies R Good Enough'

Spooky Kid Saturday Jam ~ 'The Goonies R Good Enough'



Here we are hanging' on to strains
Of greed and blues
Break the chain and we break down
Oh, it's not real if you don't feel it
Unspoken expectations
Ideals you used to play with
They've finally taken shape
What's good enough for you
Is good enough for me


There is nary a spooky kid out there that didn't grow up watching the wacky misadventures of The Goonies. Comprised of Josh Brolin, Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Corey Feldman, and many other lovable 80s nerds, Richard Donner's story of a group of kids who search for a lost pirate treasure to save their neighborhood from destruction resonated with children of all ages, and continues to do so today. Most of us still sit down to enjoy The Goonies on the regular, even if Mama Fratelli scares the crap out of us to this day.

One of the most enduring elements of The Goonies is the film's theme song, sung by the original manic pixie, Cyndi Lauper. "The Goonies R Good Enough" is still catchy as hell and will wedge itself in your brain like the sexy little ear worm that is. So do a little Truffle Shuffle, and grab the nearest treasure map, because it's time to get down with The Goonies!
