How did "Surrey with the Fringe on Top" get stuck in my head?

And how can I get it out?

1.) Probably the same way all this stuff gets stuck in people’s heads:

2.) Pepper Mill always sings “Love Potion No. 9” to herself when an unwanted song gets stuck in there. She says it always works. YMMV

You just need to get something even more obnoxious stuck in there. How about “Seasons in the Sun?”

Go into your bathroom, close and lock the door (so others in the house won’t kill you) and sing the entire song at the top of your lungs. Twice. Once it’s out, it won’t be in, dig?

Or there’s always the old standby.

On the other hand, for two days I have been humming “Don’t Fear the Reaper.” I think it was triggered by a Halloween costume.

By any chance, did you see chicks and ducks and geese scurrying?

See, at least you’ve got a plausible explanation for it. This came out of freaking nowhere.

I prefer this one

Oh, great. Thanks. Thanks a bunch. Isn’t this nice.

This is how I feel.

Ah. I fixed it; now I have the Looney Tunes ending tune stuck in my head.

Dah da da da dah da da da duh duh duh duh, do do do do dah daaaaaaaaaaaah!


They call the wind Mariah.

Oh, you are Evil with that one. Did you, by chance. listen to the Stephanie Miller Show awhile back ago, when that song led to a cascade of “Bad Seventies Earworms”?
If so, my e-mail of loathing for that song touched off the cascade. My 15 minnits of fame, over the Worst Fucking Earworm Ever.

I can only wish you a lifetime sentence of “MacArthur Park”, with eternal flame rainproof candles.

Did you watch tonight’s episode of My Name Is Earl? Tim Stack drunkenly sang a bit of it at the strip club.

There’s a joke in this thread somewhere about the inner-city drug delivery vehicle being the Fury with the syringe on top, but I can’t think of how to work it in.

Great, now I’ve got it. Thanks a whole lot. Just for that I should find a link to Pomp and Circumstance. That’ll stick for weeks.

You had to mention that one.

I don’t if it’s better or not, but I don’t get “Surrey with the Fringe on Top” stuck on my head when you mention it.

I get “Sentimental Lady” instead.

“Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
And all of the things that we say are very
sentimental gentle wind …”

No – did he really? Yikes – esp. since I’d posted the OP about four hours before that aired…

cue “Twilight Zone” music

which eerily segues into “Surrey with the Fringe on Top” :eek:

Me? I have two songs that will push anything out of my head. Sadly, then they get stuck.

A: Powerhouse, Raymond Scott…

B: Tetris theme.

Recently there was a thread in GQ about why the Catholic Church is called “she”. I forget the exact title, but it was the kind of thing which made me mentally roll my eyes and think the Church has always been female–don’t you recall "The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ her Lord . . . "

I refrained–though I was happy when I later read the thread and discovered that someone had quoted that song as a supplemental answer to the question.

But every single time I read that thread title, that song would run through my brain and get stuck for a while. I think it’s finally come out. But typing this post may have been a mistake.
