I've have a stupid song from a commercial stuck in my head for the last few days, blaring full volume. It's from a Firestone commercial, and goes something like...

"No matter where you're going,
No matter what the load,
The greatest name is Firestone
Where the rubber meets the road."

ARRRRGGGGGG

I am hoping selfishly, to rid myself of this curse by passing it on to one of you. Or, if you have a song stuck in your head and want to perhaps give it to me, kindly post it here. I need a change, at this point I don't care what it is! [cry baby]

Thank you in advance. [Big Grin]

What's needed is the Central Riff Bank - phone 'em up, tell 'em the lyric or hum a couple of bars of the tune and their mega-humungous database will instantly identify it.

Maim that tune!!!

Umm, ATT Wireless just sent me info regarding that service. At a cost of ~$1/song, it's a waste of minutes for sure.

Want a new song to get stuck in your head? What about "Rubber Biscuit?"

quote:

Bow bow bow...

Cow cow hoo-oo

Have you ever heard of a wish sandwich? A wish sandwich is the kind of a sandwich where you have two slices of bread and you, hee hee hee, wish you had some meat...

Bow bow bow...

hi-low 'n sum a-chicka whaa

Ummm... the other day I had a ricochet biscuit. A ricochet biscuit is the kind of a biscuit that's supposed to bounce back off the wall into your mouth. If it don't bounce back... you go hungry!

Bow bow bow...

hell low a sum did a-lubba goin'

Umm, umm, umm... the other day I had a cool water sandwich and a Sunday-go-to-meetin' bun...

Hee hee hee hee... What da ya want for nothing? ... a rubber biscuit?

Bow bow bow

(À la Blues Brothers, of course. I find the "What da ya want for nothing? ... a rubber biscuit?" to be particularly sticky.)

Thanks for reminding me. [Mad] May your rubber meet the road. [Razz]

Edit: Now that you got it going in my head, I noticed you got some of the words wrong, which makes it even more aggravating because they're stupid:

No matter where you're going
No matter what the load
The name is known as Firestone
Where the rubber meets the road

Don't think about pink elephants. Don't... Nope, don't you even dare think about pink elephants. (if you try not think about something, the more you think about it, so to get the song out of your head, you need to put something in your head, so you try not think about the other thing, which is typically pink (or purple) elephants -- it rarely works, but worth a try).

When I saw Kevin Pollak last thursday night at Caroline's, he did a bit about how it's even worse when you get some celebrity's voice stuck in your head, then try to get it out by singing a song. Because then you end up with *in the voice of Christopher Walken*

Simply hum the Banana Splits theme tune to yourself. Apart from being a rocking good track, it's like a mental enema in that it will make you forget the song that's got stuck in your head, but also it doesn't stick in your head for too long itself [Smile]

Altogether now. la la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la...

Two songs that get stuck in my head any time I hear them are Bobby Darin's "Irresistable You."
quote:

Call me irresponsible
call me unreliable
throw in undependable too

Do my foolish alibies
bother you
well I'm not too clever
I just adore you


And how about Louis Prima's "Just a Gigalo"
quote:

I’m just a gigolo and everywhere I go
People know the part I’m playin'
Paid for every dance, sellin' each romance
Ooh, what they’re sayin?
There will come a day, and youth will pass away
What’ll they say about me?
When the end comes I know they'll say just a gigolo
And life goes on without me

I’m just a gigolo and everywhere I go
People know the part I’m playin?
Paid for every dance, sellin' each romance
Ooh, what they’re sayin?
There will come a day and youth will pass away
What’ll they say about me?
When the end comes I know they'll say just a gigolo
Life goes on without me, ‘cause

Chorus:
I ain’t got nobody
Nobody cares for me
Nobody, nobody cares for me
I’m so sad and lonely
Sad and lonely, sad and lonely


I listened to those yesterday and they are still rattling around in my head.

--------------------
Does he know our big secret?
Has one of us confessed?
'Bout the wires circuits and motors
Buried in our chest

Desperate times call for desperate measures. And so, let me present, Rick Astley!

We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

CHORUS:
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Geeks outside the UK think yourselves lucky with this one...

In the UK we have a 'comedian' called Joe Pasquale who sings a BLOODY annoying song He has a high squeaky voice; think Megan Mullaly (Karen) from Will & Grace, but male.

The song goes:
I know a song that'll get on your nerves
Get on your nerves, get on your nerves
I know a song that'll get on your nerves,
Get, get, get on your nerves

Luckily for you I couldn't find a copy on the web.

[Big Grin]

Not many people know this, but the bananas in Pyjamas are blessed with the gift of prophesy.

Their theme tune fortold the September 11 attacks.

Bananas in pyjamas are coming down the stairs
A reference to the occupants fleeing down the fire escapes.
Bananas in pyjamas are coming down in pairs
There were two buildings they fled from
Bananas in pyjamas are chasing teddy bears
Teddy bears symbolise America.
The teddy bear is named after Theodore Roosevelt, the father of American Imperialism,
'cos on Tuesdays they all like to catch them unawares
September 11 2001 was a Tuesday.

Either way, that's just sick (and comical only in how utterly ridiculous it is).

I actually know the person responsible (and partly inspired it, with a silly little throwaway comment I made to the author).

Her original version was quite a bit longer, and had references and footnotes.

It was a response to that fscking stupid "Nostradamus predicted September 11" thing that did the rounds a couple of years ago.
