Oh yes, the one my chorus has performed at least three different times. My problem with Non Nobis (that's it's name) is that the catchiest part is the big orchestral interlude before the final chorus, and that's the one part of it I can't sing. Drat Patrick Doyle for composing that so well.

But now I have Haydn's Insanae et Vanae Curae stuck in my head. :facewall:

The guy on the right with the beard seemed to be having a good time! Not an earworm for me, I'm afraid.

That didn't catch for me, but it's certainly an enjoyable listen.

I had "FSM vs. IPU" stuck in my head while waiting for my labs to come back.

Surely you can substitute Nef Yoo for Willy? Would make it far more relevant (and less likely to be quoted :tongue: )

Dear Ubi Dubium:

I apologize profusely for killing your earworm thread, for causing the Ubi Dubikids to sing that dumb song all weekend, and for writing only the chorus.

Your Sorry Excuse for a Spouse,
Ubi Dubius.
