This song is barely featured in Shrek, which is the movie Mr Bunches and Mr F have been watching over and over since Saturday; on Saturday, I wanted to spend some time with Mr F, so we went up to his room and put Shrek in and watched it, and Mr Bunches joined us halfway through, and then Sweetie filtered in and watched, too, and now they've been watching that over and over since then.
Mr Bunches calls Shrek "Jack."
What's interesting to me about this song is how I found and re-found it. We originally watched Shrek/Jack years ago with the older kids. Then, a few years later, I put The Proclaimers' album on my iPod and heard I'm On My Way when I was jogging, and couldn't figure out where I'd heard it before. Then I didn't listen to this song for a long time, until Saturday, when I watched Shrek with the boys and this song (or about 20 seconds of it) is in the movie.
Which made me go find it and make sure it was on my iPod again, and which also made me realize that when I heard it while running years ago it probably only seemed familiar because I had heard a snippet of it in Shrek/Jack.
So that's how it'll go with this song: Every few years, I'll rewatch Shrek/Jack and then relisten to this song and then it'll slowly fade away again.
