Get OUTTA My Head
I have a weird brain. Sometimes it just gets stuck on a loop of either a song or a phrase. It doesn’t take much to get it going and it takes F O R E V E R to get it to quit. The other day for instance, I’m just driving to work listening to American Top 40 countdown with Casey Kasem. He’s introduces “Cher’s – Half-Breed”. I listen and sing along. Then Casey talks about the next song that Cher turned down because it was too controversial a song. Hmmm that’s weird. I digress. Anyway, next thing I know Vicki Lawrence starts singing, “That’s the night that the lights went out in Gawga!!….” and that’s when it happens. It’ stuck….. for T H R E E days. Not the whole song, just the one phrase. Not Cher, not some other modern song, but Vicki Lawrence. I mean I love Vicki’s comedy and Mama’s Family but whyyyyyy??? I wake up and – “THAT’S THE NIGHT THAT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT IN GAWGA!!…” I’m brushing my teeth and”THAT’S THE NIGHT THAT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT IN GAWGA!!…”, I’m driving to work and”THAT’S THE NIGHT THAT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT IN GAWGA!!…” It even enters my dreams. I try listening to other songs…. Vicki is still there. I take a nap and Vicki pops in and starts that damn song again… I’m doomed. Then, one day, it just leaves. Of course by talking about it I’m sure it is stuck again. Hope you had a laugh while I suffer!
If you’ve never heard the song and you have a brain like mine then don’t watch the video. If you’ve never heard of the song because you are a not old like me then watch away.
If you have a brain like mine also never, and I mean N E V E R listen to Counting Crows – Big Yellow Taxi. Just DON’T. “THEY PAVED PARADISE AND PUT UP A PARKING LOT……” NOOOOOOOO!!! ….damn it…… here I go again….. “T H E Y P A V E D P A R A D I S E A N D P U T U P A P A R K I N G L O O O O T……” I’ll be in the corner crying and drinking wine now….
