I hate it when I get a song stuck in my head!!! Sometimes listening to something else will clear the repeating entry. Don"t go to Disney songs. They STICK. LOL
I never would have known much of anything about Barney except for the fact that when I retired, our daughter had two little boys, not much money and needed a baby sitter so she could work and go to college. So I volunteered and ended up having them from 2 to 4 days a week for about 4 years. When I started, the little one was not yet rolling over and the older one was 2. I got to see and experience lots of things I had missed with my own kids, because at that time, I was always off working somewhere. To this day, those two grandsons are extremely close to me. It was a win-win proposition, great for the grandsons and great for me!
But back to Barney. I found that Barney and the other characters on that show are very NICE to each other. They set a much better example for little kids than some of the other shows the kids might want to watch. The boys liked Barney really well for most of the time I cared for them, and they would concentrate on whatever was going on in the show, so I could use the time to get something else done.
They also watched Sesame Street and some of the other little kid shows. They probably learned some valuable things from Sesame Street, but it seemed to me that the show encouraged being loud and shrill, which I don"t like very much.
So I guess I would have to say that I like Barney. Don"t watch it these days, but I have good memories from when I was taking care of my now high school age grandsons.
There are a bunch of songs that have come from kid shows, and in my opinion, the Barney song is sure not the worst one to have going through your mind! Hope you agree, and good luck!
