There's a particular part of hell for people who give others nasty earworms.
You know what an earworm is, don't you? A song that you can't get out of your head. Sometimes it's a good song, but more often than not it's a bad one. (Think MacArthur's Park... Oops, sorry about that.)
Anyway, I managed to get one from jimhines
on this thread
, but at least I returned the favor. (Read the thread and you'll see, but if you know what to look for on the list he generated -and knowing my age- you can probably guess the earworm before you find my entry in the thread.)
I love my wife; she's a wonderful person who I'm happy to have been married to these 15 years. That said, I had a nasty urge to throttle her when she gave me the doozy of an earworm from a song that I only vaguely remembered at best: Afternoon Delight
. If she hadn't sat me down to see that freaking video, I wouldn't be going insane right now. I swear, this makes I'd Really Love to See You
by England Dan and John Ford Coley look like Cherry Pie
Last night, a day after the fateful earworm invaded my head, I was reading The Well of Ascension. Do you know how annoying it is reading a book like that with that blankety-blank song running through your head? I have GOT to get rid of this thing.
