What song is stuck in your head today?

WHY oh why is it that the song that gets stuck in your head and goes roundandround all day is never one you actually LIKE? In fact, it's usually one you hate!

And if not, you hate it by the end of the day.

Today I'm stuck with a song from "Guys and Dolls": Sit down you're rocking the boat.
Sigh.

What's in your head today?

This is a folk song from Cape Breton Island where I used to live.

Mary Mac's mothers making Mary Mac marry me,
My mothers making me marry Mary Mac.
We're going down to Maryville tomorrow to get married,
And we'll all be making merry when I marry Mary Mac.

Imagine that going around and around in your noggin all day!  :D

Oh, poor PG, sounds painful!
But it led to this in my own brain:
Oh Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
Down the back, back, back

She jumped so high, high, high
She touched the sky, sky, sky
And didn't come down, down, down
Till the Fourth of July, ly, ly.

It's a children's hand-clapping game.
Aaaaand of course after that my head immediately segues into "Dr Knickerbocker, Knickerbocker, Number 9."

Totally random. Oh! Darling by the Beatles. At first all I could remember is Paul McCartney shouting then I remembered like five words of the song. Then I remembered that I have Abbey Road and discovered it was somehow deleted and had to search the Recycle Bin on my computer. I really wanted to hear that song...

I once owned Abbey Road, a hand-me-down CD from my parents. And I lost it! Yarrrrgh. >:(

If there is a way to, I could send you copies of it. I have practically everything the Beatles ever recorded. Well, pretty close to it anyway.

Aw, that's nice of you! But don't worry, I have good quality MP3s of the songs. :>

Today it's Volcano by Damien Rice although I'm not complaining, I love that song!

It just makes me wish I could sit at home and jam all day instead of going to work in 20 minutes

Poor poor hurricane, category 5. i hope you don't have any "Stormy Weather"

Dont know why theres no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I aint together,
Keeps rainin all the time

Life is bare, gloom and misry everywhere
Stormy weather
Just cant get my poorself together,
Im weary all the time
So weary all the time
When he went away the blues walked in and met me.
If he stays away old rockin chair will get me.

All I do is pray the lord above will let me walk in the sun once more.
Cant go on, evry thing I had is gone
Stormy weather

Since my man and I aint together,
Keeps rainin all the time

I speak outside what is recognized as the border between "reason" and "insanity".
But I consider it a measure of my humanity to be written off
by the living graves of a billion murdered lives.
And I'm not ashamed of my recurring dreams about me and a gun and a different species
(hint: starts with "h" and rhymes with "Neuman's")
of carnage strewn about the stockyards, the factories and farms.
Still I know as well as anyone that it does less good
than harm to be this honest with a conscience eased by lies.
But you cannot deny that meat is still murder.
Dairy is still rape.
And I'm still as stupid as anyone, but I know my mistakes.
I have recognized one form of oppression, now I recognize the rest.
And life's too short to make another's shorter.

Hehee, I like a good swear when the time is right. I generally don't swear at/about people; just things. Like pop music. Arrrr...rgh. :pirate: After a week of work in teh supermarket, sometimes my brain gets to muzak saturation point. :o

So tonight I'm suddenly stuck with "The Look of Love (is in your eyes...)" Just the melody.
I hate it when that happens, because if I could sing it through I could get rid of it.

At least it's not "Killing Me Softly with His Song." Yeesh.
