    What song is stuck in your head?

    Folks, I am currently being tortured by "Prelude to Act I of Carmen" by Georges Bizet. How can I get this out of my head?

    Beatles: Hard Days Night

    for some reason.......
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I had "White Wedding" from Billy Idol stuck in my head yesterday. I don't even know where it came from--it just kinda popped in there.

    Today it's "Breaking the Girl" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    - Herman Göring at the Nuremburg trials (thoughts on democracy)

    Try thinking of Rasputin by Boney M.

    Actually, right now the song that is drifting through my mind is Tired Of Toein' the Line by Rocky Burnette.

    U2's Vertigo. Heard it on the radio this morning and dang if that isn't one of the most hook filled songs there is. Even though I don't really like the song but the chorus just keeps playing over and over. Damn you Bono!!!!!

    I got this song that I can't get out of my head. I don't know the name of it, nor the artist, but it's one of those Paul Ankaesque tunes from the mid-70s. Maybe be it is him. Don't know what the Hell was the catalyst for this one.

    John Mellencamp

    After watching A&E Live by Request with John Mellencamp, I've had Rain on the Scarecrow bouncing around my head. He's one of the best songwriters ever (IMHO) but this one song will not get out!!

    2 weeks ago I had "You picked a fine time ot leave me Lucille" by Kenny Rogers. I have been channel surfing in the car and had run across it on a country station. It was agony until I got rid of it.

    Don't they call these things earworms?

    Here's part of the one stuck in my head right now:

    From John Hiatt, Tennessee Plates
    If they’d known what we was up to they wouldn’t ’a let us in
    When we landed in memphis like original sin
    Up elvis presley boulevard to the graceland gates
    See we were lookin’ for a cadillac with tennessee plates

    Well, there must have been a dozen of them parked in that garage
    And there wasn’t one lincoln and there wasn’t one dodge
    And there wasn’t one japanese model or make
    Just pretty, pretty cadillacs with tennessee plates

    She saw him singing once when she was seventeen
    And ever since that day she’s been living in between
    I was never king of nothin’ but this wild weekend
    Anyway he wouldn’t care, hell he gave them to his friends

    Well this ain’t no hotel I’m writin’ you from
    It’s the tennessee prison up at brushy mountain
    Where yours sincerely’s doin’ five to eight
    Stampin’ out my time makin’ tennessee plates
    On pitching to Stan Musial:

    Right now: Danzig's "Coldest Sun"

    For weeks I had the Standell's "Dirty Water" stuck in my head after the Sox won the Series.....

    "Somewhere over the Rainbow", by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole, that nice, mellow version that gets played on a lot of car commercials.
    Friend and I had a theory running that whatever song you had stuck in your head was an indicator of your present mood, whether or not you were aware of being in that mood. It usually seems to hold true, although I'm not sure what's being indicated here since I'm not feeling especially mellow....
    I don't dream. I plan.

    I have this song by local band Fat Freddy's Drop stuck in my head.. they play "a hypnotic groove of skanking urban Pacific roots, dub and electronica"

    "I'll be waiting, I'll be waiting for you
    Midnight rendezvous
    Round the back way, I'll meet you
    I'll meet you
    Just do what you do"


    Ok so no-one else here will have heard of them but take my word for it, they are awesome!

    Has anyone ever had "The Donut Song" by Burl Ives wedged in between your ears? I have. It's not pretty.

    Nothing worse than walking out of the house singing "'C' is for cookie, that's good enough for me ... oh cookie, cookie, cookie starts with 'C'"

    Ditto. I guess I will have to take him to the movie, but it can't be worse than the Power Rangers and Pokemon.

    Useless info courtesy of The Bear: The "bar" in the song was a country bar in downtown Toledo.

    Bad local joke about the song: About twenty (20) years ago, a prominent and up-and-coming Toledo politician was killed in a strange accident. He was parked at a red light when a pick-up truck turned the corner too fast and a tire that was in the bed of the truck bounced out, bounced on the pavement and smashed through the politician's window, killing him. The joke of course was a re-working of the song to "....you picked a fine time to leave me, loose wheel.....".

    Reading the title of this thread the music started playing in my head. It was music from the 1970's. Electric Light Orchestra.
