Mrs. FtG has been playing Rolling Stones while she cooks lately. So I've been getting Not Fade Away stuck in my head every time I hear it. But not the Stones version, or even the Buddy Holly version, but the live Grateful Dead one that I'm more familiar with.

A friend posted this the other day. Ugh. (Safe for work, but contains highly contagious earworm)

So yes, Barbie girl, by Aqua.

I am truly sorry.

By The Mark performed by Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. A friend's wife of 30+ years died a couple days ago. That's what I posted on FB to help him find peace (he's a minister but a cool one---old Freak [hippie] and still quick to jump in
discussions about the drug-laced Summer of Love that lasted a few years.) I love it and can't get it out of my head. I've watched it on YouTube several times since.

It's all about the bass, 'bout the bass, no treble...

Ugh.

Unfortunately, I'm only working on Spanish spoken shows from South America, so the theme to El Cartel 2 is in my head. I'm walking around wailing, "Mama, siempre me decia..."

Ooooh! Here it is online!

Will be blaring Steely Dan in car, Slayer at the bar.

I am really sorry to hear about that.

Right now it's "Do You", by Spoon, and before that it was a song by Ratatat that NPR keeps playing between the host segments of "Here and Now" (I can't remember the name of it) that was stuck there for a few days. Oh, and before that it was a new one by Ratatat called "Cream on Chrome" that's both funky and delicious and I was kind of happy it was there, but then again they all start out like that.

A while back, we had dinner at a restaurant where I wanted a slice of seasonal pie, but they were out. On the way out, the waitress let me have a taste of her pie. It was lemon pie. Remembering that put Space Dog into my head. Not much of a hook to that song, but I do sure like it.

I'm been grooving to Soul Bossa Nova by Quincy Jones ever since someone mentioned the old game show "Definition" a few days ago. It's a catchy tune, so it's not a bad earworm to have.

Mike Myers chose Soul Bossa Nova for the theme for "Austin Powers," so we call it an age test - which do you think of when you hear the song?

Madeline Kahn's "I'm Tired" from Blazing Saddles. I think I was mowing the lawn when it came to me.

Hardly any time passed since I posted my previous earworm and I've got a different one, really, really bad. Better Man by Pearl Jam/Eddie Vedder.

I was at the dentist. The song came one. I remembered Vedder recently played it on one of Letterman's last shows. So I went online and re-watched it.

Big mistake.

Horribly stuck in my brain. It's not a worm, it's a snake.

At the moment, it's a swing/blues version of Billy Joel's "I Go To Extremes" that I just heard at Olive Garden (might have been Tony Bennett).

A song parody of "Carrying the Banner" from Newsies. My friend wrote it and I'm going to be in his show and have been practicing endlessly. My brain's been switching back and forth from the original to the parody for most of the day.

Thank you. It replaced "Midnight at the Oasis," by Maria Muldaur, which sprung into my head for no apparent reason while I was leaving from the grocery store. My earworms are stupid and annoying and ever-present.

This one came up in conversation with Zoe as we were waxing nostalgic yesterday.

Check out the YouTube comments if it sounds a tad familiar -- and if your are nine days older than dirt!

You Don't Have To Be A Baby To Cry by Tennessee Ernie Ford on Mono 1955 Capitol 45.

People ask me why I rarely listen to music. Well, it's because I have a steady stream of amazing variety stuck in my head. Tonight's was stuff I like--dance music from the Renaissance. I once survived an entire year of "I'm an Old Cow Hand from the Rio Grand."

Hanni El Khatib - "Melt Me"

Just something from the radio that's stuck in my head. But after reading this thread, now "Hey Ya" (which I heard on the radio last night) is competing for space.

Yes that is sad. I'm so sorry for you. Sometimes a mention of a song I know will plant an earworm. Thankfully this isn't one of those times.

Now playing, an old Mink DeVille song - "Just To Walk That Little Girl Home".

I came up in iPod shuffle mode earlier this week, lay dormant for a few days, then just reappeared in my head today.

Seriously, I don't know why it's there. It just churned up from my subconscious.

Sing it, brother!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKx0tdlxMfY

Quote:
Listen, children, to a story
That was written long ago
'Bout a kingdom on a mountain
And the valley folk below
On the mountain was a treasure
Buried deep beneath a stone
And the valley people swore
They'd have it for their very own

Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who...
One tin soldier rides away

So, the people of the valley
Sent a message up the hill
Asking for the buried treasure,
Tons of gold for which they'd kill
Came an answer from the kingdom,
"With our brothers, we will share
All the secrets of our mountain,
All the riches buried there"

Now, the valley cried with anger,
"Mount your horses, draw your sword!"
And they killed the mountain people
So, they won their just reward
Now, they stood beside the treasure
On the mountain dark and red
Turn the stone and looks beneath it...
"Peace on Earth" was all it said

Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who...
One tin soldier rides away

Go ahead and hate your neighbor
Go ahead and cheat a friend
Do it in the name of Heaven
You can justify it in the end
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgment day
On the bloody morning after who...
One tin soldier rides away

Ever since seeing today that Ron Moody died, the brilliant little march "Be Back Soon" from Oliver! has been playing in an endless loop in my brain.
