The Horror Honeys: Shark Week Jam ~ 'Show Me The Way To Go Home'

Shark Week Jam ~ 'Show Me The Way To Go Home'

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it’s gone right to my head
Everywhere I roam
Over land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Said show me the way to go home.

Before a giant shark crashes their party, Quint, Brody and Hooper are rocking out to the second most popular tune to come out of the Jaws series (most popular being John Williams' heart pounding DUN DUN DUN DUN theme). There's nothing particularly sinister about it, but the inclusion of this lighthearted drinking song in the middle of one of the most tense thrillers around is worthy of note. The song itself has a long history with literature, film and television and as a winky wink tribute in Piranha 3D being sung by Richard Dreyfuss. Is it catchy? Yes. Is it something you should rock out at a pool party? Definitely. Happy summer! ~HH
