What earworm songs are burrowing through your head today?
 
You know how it is. You hear a song on an advert or a tv show and then that's it, it's there. It might, if you're lucky be a song you love. Or, it might be Slade.

In my case, today it's the song Kiss from a Rose. I watched an episode of community a few nights ago in which Jeff (having been blackmailed into a day at the mall with Dean Pelton) and the Dean sing a karaoke version.

Haven't been able to shift the bastard since. It's just there, in the background.

I was trying to find the karaoke scene itself on youtube, but the best I managed is a fanvid that merges clips of other Jeff/Pelton scenes in with the original. It's still very funny. The ending in particular. But be warned the song is sticky.

Maybe I should start watching Community.
I do love me some Joe McHale, although I only really know him from The Soup.

He's also one of those tall people who are not actually spidly, so they really surprise you when you see them next to normal sized people and realise.

My worst ear-worms are the ones where I don't really know the words.
So I can't even just sing it out and get it over with.

This morning I got up and started singing Montego Bay, for no reason I can think of. Managed to get it out of my head pretty quickly though. The other week it was Cotton-Eyed Joe. Far harder to shake off.
And it came with dance movements. Using the term dance in the loosest possible interpretation.

At the risk of derailing my own thread from earworms to Community...

Here's some Joel McHale googness for ya :P



More Joel McHale, with the glorious Jim Rash:

Ends up, you got me, you bitch.
When Diz tramped on my head this morning (need to post photo of "natural" purple eyelid colouring) all I could think of was Kiss From A Rose.

See above; the worst are where I don't know the words.
I've looked them up since.
However at 04.00-ish, with sore, swollen eyelid, all that was going round in ma heid was:
I can give you a kiss from a rose on a bin
[And blah blah blah....]
Light hits the corner of bin

Never did know the words.

The song from "That Thing You Do".

Sundae 06-12-2013 01:43 PM

You bad man.
Bad, bad man.
I had to go watch it again, knowing how ear-wormed I was back before YouTube existed.

Have yet to see if it will take.
If it does, then I'll blame you once again.
I will curse you with an unexplained tickly feeling on your nose, like you just walked into a cobweb. Not an Australian cobweb of course, as that would leave you minus a nose, an eye and probably some children.

So I see you That Thing You Do and raise you You Stole The Sun From My Heart by the Manics.
Because the chorus seems to repeat itself endlessly.

I was working for CPW at the time, and friends and I (all on staff tariffs for our mobiles) used to phone eachother at random intervals and just sing "Oh yeah YOU! stole the sun from my har-aaart! You STOLE the sun from my haaart! You stole the SUN from..."


Actually I could sing a reasonable "I love you all the same" - to the extent one of my Merry Men had me record it on his answerphone. Til his girlfriend complained...
It was a simple pleasure, but it bit both ways.

Tim Minchin's Thank You God

I haven't hit play yet, but can't help noticing that in the sample image from the video, this guy looks exactly like Bobcat Goldthwait.

DanaC 06-13-2013 08:00 AM

Have you not seen any Tim Minchin stuff before glatt?

He's marvellous. Very well known in the UK.

Because I am already in hell (not just going) the song running through my head, thanks to a current thread and my propensity for gallows humor, is Momma's Got a Squeeze Box by the Who.

There, I said it.

At least I didn't make a clone thread.
