The Beach Boys’ “Kokomo” was stuck in my head all morning and I didn’t know why. I haven’t heard the song in ages, and I certainly haven’t thought about it lately because, well, it’s not a great song. (It’s definitely not a great Beach Boys song.)
And then I figured it out…
I saw a recent headline that William “Rick” Singer, the mastermind behind the “Operation Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal, was sentenced to several years in prison.
Another person indicted in that scandal was Lori Loughlin.
Lori Loughlin played Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis, the girlfriend and wife of Jesse Katsopolis, on Full House. (Random Nebraska trivia: The Rebecca character was born in Valentine.)
Jesse Katsopolis was played by John Stamos.
John Stamos performed with the Beach Boys on various occasions and appeared in the video for “Kokomo.”
Thus, “Kokomo” has been stuck in my head all morning.
Does anyone else’s brain work like this?
