Current ear worm?

   Discussion: Current ear worm?
Nik Chaikin · 14 years, 9 months ago
Share your ear worm, thats the only way to get rid of it. My current one Is Mother's Lament, by Cream.
nate... · 14 years, 9 months ago
"comfort eagle" by cake.

Nik Chaikin Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
I had that one for a while not long ago.
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Me and Adi were singing "Alpha Beta Parking Lot" and "Satan is My Motor" on the way to the train from the show. They shoulda done those. =P
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Nice!

Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
I found his comment on the crowdsurfing to be spot-on. The fact that that practice has survived, and that people were doing it on BRICK astounds me.

I did it once at a festival in Lowell. Scary as hell, and since I was a noob, I didn't know the proper etiquette was to remove one's shoes first. I nearly took out some dude with my steel-toes.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Where'd they play last night?
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Well, I think I saw them in the same place as you...City Hall Plaza in Boston, right?
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Nopers... saw 'em here in Noho... at the Calvin.
:)
Erin McKeown opened.
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Ahh, I see. Well, my show was free, so I'm cooler than you. =P

To elaborate on my earlier statement, kids were crowdsurfing, and the singer, whose name I have never known, said "It never ceases to amaze me that Cake, a band that basically plays easy-listening music, inspires crowdsurfing."
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
haha
yeah, that is amusing.
Nobody 'surfed at my concert... but it was great nonetheless.
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Well, it's harder to surf in a club, I'd gather.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
and if it had been in a club, that'd be a good point. :D
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Outside of Pearl Street and the Iron Horse, I am woefully unfamiliar with Noho venues. Calvins is not a club, I take it?
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
The calvin used to be a beautiful old theatre..... fell into disrepair (to the point where it was condemned...) and then it was fixed up once again into a beautiful old theatre. :)

It's not the best music venue... though the sound is pretty darned good.... just because the seating kinda sucks.

But, I am glad to see it all fixed up.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
I remember going there right before it closed to see a movie... parts of the seating were roped off because pieces of the ceiling were falling there regularly..... every now and then through the movie you'd hear a piece let go and fall to the floor.

Good times.
Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Oh, and it was on Saturday. Finch opened for them. For a band that professes to be such hugge Hum fans, Finch is horribly generic.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
never heard of finch...

Geoff Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Consider yourself lucky. Emo/screamo/pseudopunk in the vein of Poison the Well. Think Eve 6, but less clever and more screaming.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Ugh.
sheryls · 14 years, 9 months ago
Sick Day, Fountains of Wayne.
nate... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
are you taking a sick day.... soon?

sheryls Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
i would if i didnt have this big looming 9/16 deadline :D
Samantha · 14 years, 9 months ago
"Gethsemane" from Jesus Christ Superstar. I've had that song stuck in me for the last week..O.o

that, and "Mary,Mary" by Chumbawamba.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 14 years, 9 months ago
Crystal Balls by Neil Innes complete with call and response.
Kat Kunz · 14 years, 9 months ago
I've been finding Girlyman's "Young James Dean" pretty hard to shake. That, and Aqualung's "Easier to Lie." (I'm not sure that talking about them has helped any, either--but they're good songs, so I don' t mind so much.)
Paul D. Beasi Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Mmmmm Aqualung. They're great.
Real-Accordion! · 14 years, 9 months ago
"Clap your hands" by clap your hands and say yeah!
Also; "I can't believe you actually died" by the microphones.

Yay for mixed lyrics.
Samantha · 14 years, 9 months ago
Oh, herer comes another one to me:

"If I Stand" by Jars of Clay
Talcott · 14 years, 9 months ago
This tends to help me get almost any song (other than these three) out of my head. It helps if you sing, but the words might work.

.oO Don't rock the suburbs in the middle, in the middle, in the middle, in the middle, in the middle of the jealous sea. Oo.

Granted, it was more effective a few years back, but it still does a good job (for me at least).

Oh, and to answer the poll question:
Robbie Schaefer: "Backbeat" and "This is Me"
Peter Mulvey: "Shirt" (every time anyone orders something corduroy at work ;-)
meh Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
Argh. Now you've got that amalgamation in my head.

Of course, it's better than my reccent bouncing back and forth between Amsterdam and Dancing Queen. (With a momentary side-trip into the Smarty Pants song which was... oh yeah, that was your fault too. ;-) )
Talcott Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
.oO ooooh! - ahhhh! Dance in smarty pants Oo.
meh Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
*shakes a tiny fist*
Curse you Talcott!
caroline: tired. Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
.oO ooooh! - ahhhh! Dance in smarty pants Oo.

derek harrison · 14 years, 9 months ago

July
Small Small World
Loaded Minds
bored, bored, bored.... Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
"Be a Guy" is an evil earworm. And you can't really sing it out loud in public....;-)
Mur_Maid · 14 years, 9 months ago
You Remind Me from Dave's album, and We're About 9's Writing Again.

MMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm....WA9...

goovie is married! Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
man, i've had "writing again" in my head all morning. a welcome change from yesterday, when my mental jukebox was all about wicked.
caroline: tired. · 14 years, 9 months ago
Recently, it's been The Beatles' "In My Life," but this morning I cannot get "Sugar We're Goin Down" by Fall Out Boy out of my head.

It's what I get for shopping at American Eagle; (and Hollister for that matter) I swear they only play three songs. 'Sugar We're Goin' Down,' 'Portions For Foxes,' and that awful 'Hollaback Girl.'
angelmusicmaven Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
ARGH... those are some of the staples at my gym... I get the Hollaback Girl B-A-N-A-N-A-S!!! part in my head constantly, along with Kelly Clarkson's Since You've Been Gone and other top 40 drivel... the locker room at my gym plays very strange selections from the 90's... like one week they played "Informer" by Snow every day!!! And for those who know that song... you know what a bad earworm that is... "a licky boom boom DOOOOWN!"
sheryls Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
my sister met Snow! apparantly, a few years ago he tried to resurrect his career as a pop singer instead of a rapper :D
dirty life & times · 14 years, 9 months ago
i had johnny cash & june carter singing it to me until i broke down & bought "live at san quentin" yesterday.
Prinut · 14 years, 9 months ago
"Promising Actress" John Vanderslice.
Kat Kunz Back · 14 years, 9 months ago

Real-Accordion! Back · 14 years, 9 months ago
You were my fiji.

Jerrilyh Back · 14 years, 5 months ago
Cabas - La Cadena De Oro
Matt P · 14 years, 5 months ago
I had We're About Nine's reading you stuck in my head all this morning, so I listened to it over and over again walking to the bus and in school, which usually works to get it out. It did get Reading You out of my head, but then I became earwormed with Another Love Song (which is after Reading You on the cd)
Phoenix · 14 years, 5 months ago
on a a harp!
