That “Dan Dan Dan” Song. You Know, By Avril Lavigne!

by Lee on November 9, 2011

Everyday on the way home from picking up my son from school I hear this song where the female singer belts out “Dan Dan Dan, what I’d give to have you near, near, near. I wish you were here”. And everyday I think of my friend Marianna over at because she is the only person I know with a husband named Dan.

So today I caught up with her and told her exactly that. Here is our conversation via Google Chat:

11:20 PM me: Everytime I hear that new song “Dan” I think of you, cause you are the only one I know with a husband named Dan. At least I think that is his name?

11:21 PM Marianna: Yes it is his name. Who sings the song? I’ve never heard of it either. LOL. This is what happens when you don’t have cable and 4 children are running you ragged.

11:23 me: hold on I’ll look…still looking

Marianna: lol you don’t have to look.

me: no cause now it’s killing me

11:26 PM Marianna: icon smile That Dan Dan Dan Song. You Know, By Avril Lavigne!

me: OMG WTF!

Marianna: oh shit, what happened?

11:28 PM me: no I mean I can’t find the song, it’s on ALL THE TIME

11:30 PM me: Um…I feel really stupid right now like, REALLY stupid

Marianna: Why?

me: The song is by Avril Lavigne, it’s called Wish You Were Here and it actually says “Damn Damn Damn” LOLOLOLOL

Marianna: bahahahahahah. i frickin love you.

me: You are welcome. OMG though seriously. I feel like, so dumb. I kept thinking how odd it was that the song said Dan like that. I was all like, “Who is Dan”?

11:32 PM Marianna: LOL. Well maybe she just needs to sing clearer.

me: Yeah that’s it

11:33 PM Marianna: exactly

me: ExactLee!!!

11:34 PM Marianna: Dan, I should have caught that one.

me: Shut up! I’m so writing about this on my blog.

Marianna: lol. yay!

And that my friends is a really fun misunderstanding amongst good friends! I’ve included the song above for your enjoyment.

Good times. :) Hands down my best gmail chat, ever! I can’t believe you left my curse in there. LOL.
P.S. The song would have been way better if it had in fact been Dan, Dan, Dan.

FUNNY!!!!!! I can’t tell you how many times I put my own words into songs. I sing it like I hear it :), which usually isn’t right.
