Hey, Ubi, I think Stephen Pastis might be a Pastafarian. Did you notice he had a croc dressed like a pirate on Pirate Day?

I get partial earworms... nver a whole song, just maybe one line, or a chorus.

The last few days its been:

Come my lady
Come come my lady
you're my butterfly
Sugar.baby

over and over and over and over again.

Well, I could go with the one from Scrubs.....

Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly lolly lolly.......


OH! What about this one?

Ahem....

I heard you on the wireless back in Fifty Two
Lying awake intent at tuning in on you.
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through.


Oh-a oh


They took the credit for your second symphony.
Rewritten by machine and new technology,
and now I understand the problems you can see.


Oh-a oh

I met your children
Oh-a oh

What did you tell them?
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.


Pictures came and broke your heart.
Oh-a-a-a oh


And now we meet in an abandoned studio.
We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.
And you remember the jingles used to go.


Oh-a oh


You were the first one.
Oh-a oh


You were the last one.


Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
In my mind and in my car, we can't rewind we've gone to far
Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh


Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.


In my mind and in my car, we can't rewind we've gone to far.
Pictures came and broke your heart, put the blame on VTR.


You are a radio star.
You are a radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.
Video killed the radio star.


Video killed the radio star. (You are a radio star.)

If I could kill you, I would, in the most brutal, painful way possible.

It sounds like I did my job well. Hooray, I can do something right after all! Take that, everyone I've ever spoken with! You all said I'd fail at everything, but you were wrong! I only fail at most things!

Camp Granada---thanks to blackbart over in word association game (with further thanks to writer Alan Sherman and Dr. Demento who made the song a regular on his radio show and also, by the way, brought us many Weird Al goodies)

I'm going to divert the hatred away from FaithfulPirate42 with this one (I hate myself for doing this):

Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners

Poor old Johnny Ray sounded sad upon the radio
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried,
And sang along who'd blame them?

You've grown, (your grown up) So grown(so grown up)
Now I must say more than ever
(Come on Eileen) Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye Aye
And we can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen , I swear (well he means)
At this moment, you mean everything
You in that dress, oh my thoughts i confess
Verge on dirty
Ah come on Eileen

(Come on Eileen) Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye Aye
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

This earworm is STILL in my head. This is the worst one I have had in a long time!

A few days ago, my daughter's best friend came over, and she played Still Alive for him. Now it's stuck in his head too. He said he played it on a repeating loop for about an hour the next day. Yesterday he came over, and he and both my daughters were playing it and singing to it.

This morning, my daughter downloaded a new song to her ipod. Guess which one? As soon as it came up on itunes, I started pluggin my ears and going LALALALALA. But perhaps the end is in sight. Since it's on her ipod now, she can listen without me having to hear it. No - she'll sing along, so we'll still be stuck with it. AARRGH!

Gee, thanks, anickels, now I have the chorus of The Hand of the Almighty stuck in my head.

I just hope I don't start singing it under my breath at work.

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

Does it count that I have the video for One Love by Aiden flashing before my eyes? It's not music, but it's similar to an earworm, just visual, instead, and it certainly is a horror...

Argh! I've had this damn youtube video stuck in my head since Ken reminded me of it! It's the Rammstein version of Barbie Girl.

I am and shall remain innocent of the scourge of Rick Rolling on this discussion board...I would never stoop to such base behaviour. You should be ashamed of yourself TurtleHolmes and as a penance you must force yourself to watch this, which, I think you will agree, represents your country's darkest moment:
