songs that get stuck in my head

This is just a list from today:
We are the Champions.
I'm gonna Rock & Roll all night, & Party every day.
Adell Brown RV Trailer (ads are the worst).
The Wheel in the Sky.
I have a Fast Car.
Everybody's Workin for the Weekend (it seems the 80's are the most apt to plague me).
Muscrat Love.
The Princess Pat, she Sailed across the Seven Seas (camp song from sisters' camp--totally unfair. I didn't even go to camp.)

I tried hard not to include too many lyrics so that you wouldn't suffer like I do. Perhaps I'll have more later, if I'm lucky :)

On another note--I'm watching Lord of the Rings Return of the King--the extended version (which I still need to BUY; it's on Starz) and Sean Astin deserved an Oscar. The line "I can't carry [the ring] for you, but I can carry you" is the sincerest bit of dialogue I've ever heard.

the song stuck in my head is the ABC countries song from They Might Be Giants. The bad thing about this is that kids like to listen to things over and over, so there is no hope of recovering. I also had "I Want to Be Sedated" stuck in my head, most likely from over exposure to that damn commercial.
Someone (maggie?) told me that Happy Birthday is the palette cleanser.

:) OK. After I get the Ramones out of my head, I'll try Happy birthday.
The song (since I'm pre-TMBG kid version) I get in my head from the TMBG weird album that no one loves called Apollo 18 and there's this weird riff that goes "I Walk Along Unseen Corridors." In fact, I'm off to put that in the CD player now.

Back in high school, all my female friends were into hair bands. Anything by Poison and Bon Jovi just won't leave me. (I think it's some kind of karmic hell.)

Condiment said...

Yes, yes, yes! I think it is "I Walk Along Darkened Corridors." Is it "unseen corridors"? I always enjoyed the "What's That Blue Thing Doing Here?" and the "Please Pass the Milk Please" niblets of the "Fingertips" track on "Apollo 18."

Masterful. I love this album! Why do people hate it? It has "Spider" (Get rid of...) and "Hypnotist of Ladies" and countless other gems.

Sam Gamgee was definitely the hero in the entire trilogy.After all. according to Frodo himself: Frodo wouldn't have gotten very far if it weren't for Sam.
And about those songs that get stuck in your seems to happen at all the wrong times too. Ever tried to do an Econ exam with nothing but "Unskinny Bop" by Poison going thru your mind? [And btw.. i MUST say that it wasn't a song I chose... it happened to be the last song on the radio before I left home!]
aria =)

Nik said...

Yep. It is "darkened corridors." Another grim facet of the song-stuck-in-head is that I often (always?) have the lyrics wrong.

Sadly, The wheels on the bus... Lillian by Emmy lou...and now I have a Fast Car Tracy Chapman version thanks to nik...

The princess pat is a fantastic song. The girlscouts were really on to something. I think it's really about how a pirate woman/man (pat) stole (pirated) a big bag of rigabamboo... I think it's a stoner song. Go girlscouts...they didn't call me a brownie just for kicks did they???

Recognize this undiscovered gem which is poised to jump!!

Please read the following Announcement in its Entierty and
Consider the Possibilities�
Watch this One to Trad,e!

Because, EGTY has secured the global rights to market
genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not
remain on the ground floor for long.

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
