Private Dancer

I've had the same song stuck in my head since Sunday. While my wife was on the computer and I was getting ready to jump in the shower, I thought I'd share my pain.

Me: Private Dancer by Tina Turner. Its been stuck in my head for the last two days. Its your turn.
Her: Gee, thanks. ::begins singing song::

Five minutes later - I'm in the shower and the door is abruptly opened.

Me: Hi.
Her: Two things. First, fuck you. And second ::begins singing song::

Oh thanks a lot, my day was already not shaping up well. Just for that, [ahem]:

"She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes
She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes
She'll be comin' round the mountain
She'll be comin' round the mountain
She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes..."

Sings:

"Smelly cat, smelly cat...
What are they feeding you?"

"Smelly cat, smelly cat...
It's not your fault..."

Man. That just kicked my song-virus into overdrive... I've been song-virus free for a couple days now. I'm not sure WHAT to expect.

I know there was a point about annoying songs in there somewhere, but I naturally got fixated on the shower bit.

Thanks =)

Hmmm. Well, whenever someone mentions a song that gets stuck in your head I immediately think of the one that gets stuck in my head. This, of course, gets it stuck in my head. So, in the interest of keeping everyone else sane I will let you know that it is a never ending song. One which, if you babysat in the 80s and early 90s, or had small siblings or children at that time, you might have heard a little lamb singing.

Try "She Drives Me Crazy." That one really sticks in my head. But Private Dancer does it, too.

okay, i once put "the song that never ends" on my page at college--i copied and pasted over and over for about 35 pages, i think it was...

and now you've got me thinking;
when i saw "Private Dancer"
my first thought was that santa's team
is in the reserve, and had been sent to Iraq...

and i started thinking elton john:
"Hold me closer, Private Dancer,
dodge the bombs along the highway.
Lay me down in sheets of canvas,
I'm in the body count today."

hehe that reminds me of when my hubby got Eddie Murphy's song "Party All the Time" stuck in my head. I told him that every time it ran through my head I was going to sing it out loud so he'd have to suffer, too. Didn't take long before he was trying ANYTHING to get that song out of my head ;)

*my fault... MY FAULT. It's late. I've skipped all proof-reading this evening....

Try "Nobody Told Me" - John Lennon. It's been stuck in my head for days.

Posted by: Maureen at February 4, 2004 08:38 PM

LMAO :) I'll second that. Thanks. Now it's my turn, I'll only say: "Wake me up before you go go" :)
