    It's the final countdown!

    This song actually became a rickroll of sorts here at work. We'd play it randomly for people and get it to load and play on each other's computers with embedded flash files and things. We even filled one guy's entire voicemail box with it. :)

    I wanna try something - if you hear a really awful rendition, does the song leave your head? It works for me as I've watched American Idol rejects butchering songs on youtube and BAM! the song doesn't bother for the rest of the day.

    terrible ass cover

    No, and now that you reminded me, we actually switched to that version of the song once someone found it.

    In a similar vein, when I hear "believe it or not," I mentally fill in "George isn't at home, please leave a message at the beep!"

    I should probably learn the words to the real song so it's at least a little less pathetic.

    Look at what's happened to me.
    I can't believe it myself.
    Suddenly I'm up on top of the world;
    It should've been somebody else.

    Believe it or not I'm walking on air.
    I never thought I could feel so free.
    Flying away on a wing and prayer.
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not, it's just me.

    Just like the light of a new day,
    It hit me from out of the blue.
    Knocking me out of the spell I was in,
    Making all of my wishes come true.

    Believe it or not I'm walking on air.
    I never thought I could feel so free.
    Flying along on a wing and prayer.
    Who could it be?
    Believe it or not, it's just me.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of that, since it's off the top of my head.

    Oh yeah, that's a trait I have that makes me more prone to getting songs stuck in my head. I have an uncanny ability to remember lyrics and melodies. About a year ago my daughter started asking me to sing her songs she'd never heard before when I put her to bed (my turn every other night). I haven't had to repeat yet, though I occasionally skip a verse or something, or insert some la-la-las.

    Mine doesn't even bother me so much. Like it's a song that exemplifies menial but relaxed labor on a farm. Maybe it's because the tune is forever in midi format but hearing the thing is my brain is almost comforting.

    When I was a kid, my mom used to put me to bed with a lot of old novelty songs, some of which I can still recite. For instance:

    I'll take a leg from some old table
    I'll take an arm from some old chair
    I'll take a neck from some old bottle
    And from a horse I'll grab the hair, I mean the tail
    And when I put them all together
    With some twine string and some glue
    I'll get a lot more lovin' from a gosh-darn dummy
    Then I ever got from you.

    Yes. In a remarkably sensible move she left the public eye for like two years to get well and then came back when it was sorted out. No fuss, no public wailing and gnashing of teeth, nothing. As celebrities go, Kylie's a really rather excellent one.

    I figured it was a parody of something (most of them are, like the "When I Was 17" song), but I never knew the source.

    I hear it the Homer way, though. Same for "Jingle Bells", I always hear it the Simpsons way (Batman smells...). But not the Bart version; I hear it the way Robert Goulet sang it in Bart's treehouse casino. "Oh, sorry kid!"

    Ever since I saw this live at Austin last week this has been stuck in my head

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYMwW6Lc-9M

    Kick it! Once upon a midnight dreary, while I kicked it weak and weary,
    Dark and cold just like Lake Eerie, Brand New sample, someone clear me.
    While I nodded nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping.
    Up like, "What?", this thunder clapping in my brain like graphic Halflings.
    Staffing me, I put down Milton. Cell phone mute like Paris Hilton.
    Open window, halfway built-in. Times a changing like Bob Dylan.
    Twenty-pound bird black as could be, cold feet cold eyes aimed straight at me.
    Grim face, grim stare, death carnivore, quothe that raven "Nevermore."

    Who's that (who's that) rapping?
    Who's that rapping at my chamber door?
    Mr. (mister) Raven!
    All up in my grill like, "Nevermore."

    The worst thing is when you have one little fragment of a line from a song stuck in your head and can't remember what it's from.

    I had "Hang it up now, Mr. Normal" stuck in my head for like two weeks and then I finally listened to We're Not Gonna Take it by The Who and was like "YES!"
