Today I caught myself humming...


Recommended Posts

Today's song is something by the Scissor Sisters. I'm not sure which one it is, but I've caught myself crooning, "Sha-mon, sha-mon" more times that I care to admit to. And it's only 11:30. :blink:

 

Personally I blame XFM, which seems to have embraced the Elton John soundalikes with incredible fervour. Between SS and theStreets, my summer radio listening is taking a strange turn.

Does anyone remember the pop tune that Joe Simpson (as depicted in Touching the void ) couldn't get out of his head as he was, he believed, about to die in a crevice? It was surreally comical. Is that what happens on one's death bed: the most irritating song plays again & again in one's head?

Fortunately, I quite like that one. I have a copy somewhere. I shall enjoy humming that. The other morning, I couldn't shake one of Satie's Gymnopedies out of my mind; and they can be rather relentlessly repetitive.

 

Edit: To make matters worse:

 

"Rah, rah Rasputin, lover of the Russian queen.

There was a cat who really was gone."

Oh no, now I've been reminded of this:

 

Where’s your mama gone? (Where’s your mama gone?)

Little baby Don (Little Baby Don)

Where’s your mama gone? (Where’s your mama gone?)

Far, far away

 

Where’s your papa gone? (Where’s your papa gone?)

Little baby Don (Little baby Don)

Where’s your papa gone? (Where’s your papa gone?)

Far, far away

Far, far away

 

Last night, I heard my mama singing a song

Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

Woke up this morning and my mama was gone

Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep, Chirp

 

STOP, STOP.

Well I didn't want to suffer all by myself, did I? :lol:

 

One more time now

Last night, I heard my mama singing a song

Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

Woke up this morning and my mama was gone

Ooh-We, Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep

Chirpy, Chirpy, Cheep, Cheep, Chirp
