Woke up this morning, and Tom Dunne was playing James Blunt. You know “You’re Beautiful”.

First time I heard that song I didn’t care one way or the other, but OMFG please someone shoot it!

Now “I don’t know what to do” because it is stuck in my head, despite having listened to another 40 minutes of random songs on the radio. I heard it at 8 o’clock, it is now almost 12, and still it is going round and round my head.

This must be what going mad feels like.

“This song annoys me.
It’s really crap.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smashed her head against the door.
This song is that horrific.
But I don’t care bout her at all,
It’s killing me too.

Its really shite. Its really shite.
Its really shite, it’s true.
I heard this song in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I think I’m going mad.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking mad,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

Its really shite. Its really shite.
Its really shite, it’s true.
I heard this song in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I think I’m going mad,

It’s really shite. It’s really shite.
It’s really shite, it’s true.
That must be blood coming from her ears, you see
She heard that shite on the radio.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never escape this shite.”

  1. Can one 'shoot' a song? Interesting concept.

    If so, I need a Glock with endless clips.

    The evil of songs that stick in the head when said head does not want them to stick has been a misunderstood curse of mine.

    I am sad to see you suffer yet cheered that I am not alone in my plight.

    Well I can shoot the radio, that'd stop the horror. I hesitate to advocate shooting the singer, simply because we might only wound, and then think of the shrieks of the singers

  3. Anne says:

    What you really have to do is listen to a song you know and like, but don't listen to it in full. Your brain will finish it for you and it will replace the James Blunt one.
    That's what I do, and it usually works.

  4. Carl V. says:

    Yep, you're going mad. Come by the center here and I'll hook you up with some good psychotropics! :)

    That does suck and it unfortunately always happens on the most god-awful song you can imagine!

  5. Fence says:

    Problem is Anne, that I work in a library, so can't really be listening to music. But come 5.15 I'll give it a try.

    Thanks for the diagnosis Carl V :)

    I'd say it was better to have James Blunt's song in your head, or would you prefer the Crazy Frog….? :O

  7. It was the advent of compilation CD's advertised on latenight television that made this curse especially evil. In that case, the listen to partial song to have it finished by the evil brain is only temporary.

    I like Carl's idea, though. It has great merit.

    Worst song to have stuck in your head:

    a tie between 'Seasons in the Sun' and 'Muskrat Love'.

  8. LiVEwiRe says:

    I feel your pain. Often I get a song in my head but unfortunately I only know two lines or something. But all damn day… over and over… it is maddening, isn't it?

  9. Fence says:

    Weenie, crazy frog is evil, but at least he isn't on the radio anymore. I haven't seen or heard from him in quite a while.

    Jennifer, I have no idea what Muskrat Love is like, I probly don't want to do I?

    Livewire, maddening? It is evil, and I demand retribution. Demand it!

    Maybe I'm going a little too far here :) And Leonard is doing his best to keep good songs playing in my brain at the moment.
