It's raining tacos.

There’s really nothing I hate more than sitting in traffic. Yet, I do it every morning from 8 am to 9 am and each time it crushes my soul just a little bit more. But then something magical happened today. A super weird, yet wonderful, song called “Raining Tacos” played on the radio and my entire mood lifted.

And I mean instantly. The song was happy, it was catchy, and the theme — raining tacos — brought a crunchy smile to my face. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE tacos? I liked it so much that as I soon as I trudged into work I found it on YouTube so I could keep playing it over and over again. And like clockwork the happiness poured over me, the way salsa pours over tacos. (I’m also pretty hungry).

So where did “Raining Tacos” come from?

Turns out the song is kind of old, it’s from 2012 according to the YouTube date. And it has 18 million views on YouTube so I am clearly not the first one to discover it. However, since happiness is so hard to come by in the middle of the work week, I felt the need to share this delightful song  and bring a little day-brightening to the masses … even though it was clearly a cultural phenomenon without me.

So come with me to a world in which it’s raining tacos.

As the song by Parry Gripp & BooneBum says:

“It’s raining tacos
From out of the sky
Tacos
No need to ask why
Just open your mouth and close your eyes
It’s raining tacos.”

If that’s not the best life advice you’ve ever received I don’t know what is.

When good things happen, like tacos raining from the sky, we need to learn to just let go and accept it for its greatness. Let the light in, let love in, LET TACOS IN!

I’ve listened to the song about 10 times now and each time I love it more. I’m imagining myself eating millions of tacos and running around a green field as we speak. Life is truly wonderful. Or as the song says, it’s a “dreeeeeeam.”

“Yum Yum Yum Yum Yumity Yum
It’s like a dreeeeeeeeeeeeeeam!!!!!!!
Yum Yum Yum Yum Yumity Yum
Bring your sour cre-e-e-eam”

For those of you wondering the real story behind the catchy song, it was created along with a video game called “Raining Tacos” in which you jump around catching falling tacos. I don’t know what I was doing the past few years but I’m sad I missed the birth of this great edition to the world.

Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go find some sour cream.
