What song is stuck in your head right now?

Postby plasticfantastic on Sat Oct 10, 2009 1:23 pm

Well, I ALWAYS have something stuck in my head, so I figured I'd ask.

For me, it's been The Great Society's version of Nature Boy all day. I love that song, but it's becoming slightly agonizing.

Ooooh boy, that's rough....

Well, I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that I got Nature Boy out of my head because I've been listening to Blows Against The Empire.

I expect that Mau Mau won't get annoying for at least a few days.

"Fire Engine" by the Elevators. I heard it at a party last week, and it just won't stop, probably because I was in the Empty Place for a few minutes last Friday night. "EEYYIIEEYYIIEEYYII!" (I've got this one on record of course, but I don't hear it much because my chum Carol can't stand the howls. Can't understand it because Carol likes Janis Joplin, and she used to sing like someone had trodden on her toes.)

I expect it'll be something from "Volunteers" next.

Wow... I wish I could predict what song would get stuck in my head next. That must be pretty cool.

By the way, most people can control what song is stuck in their head, right? Or is it only me?

I can predict what song will get stuck in my head.Only songs ive gotten stuck in my head before though.I am starting to control it now too.Like, when i hear Miracles, i know im going to get it stuck in my head.And, when i think about Miracles, i do this knowing ill get it stuck in my head.So i do my best to not listen to or think about Miracles, so as to not make my head a late-70s light rock radio station.Now, i have sacrificed that to give you this information.

Miracles is in my head once again...is a shortened version of what i just said.My medication to get songs out of my head is to blast something with headphones.I think a healthy dose of Spare Chaynge shall do the trick!

I am so sorry. Miracles is NOT a good thing to have stuck in your head!

Can you mix songs in your head? The other day I had a weird mash-up of Plastic Fantastic Lover and Greasy Heart in my head, which was actually pretty awesome. About an hour ago, I had a very weird mix of The Fixin'-to-Die Rag and Trial By Fire in my head. Needless to say, I've been listening to LJS, and Woodstock.

Good luck with Spare Chaynge.

"babe...babe...babe"...*puke*.Something i will never understand is how that song appeared on an album any Airplane members were on.But then again...Grace sang on We Built this City :( .Sucess can do things...

Anyway, whenever i hear Spare Chaynge i end up going to play bass, like many Airplane songs.Its an impulse, so by then any songs i had in my head are far gone, unless i like them, then it will squeeze its way into whatever im playing.But yeah i always get two songs mixed stuck in my head.Whenever it happens to me though, its two songs either similar, or they have a part of the song that could go with a part of the other song.Like, ill get Ballad Of in my head, and after the bass solo sometimes it will go into Eat Starch Mom.Problably because they both got a driving rhythm.I got one for ya here though, you ever had a song in your head, the studio version, and maybe you have heard a live version thats extended, and when it gets to a certain point, it goes into the live version.Ive done that with both the Pooneils alot.

I just meant I was planning to listen to Volunteers, and it's quite likely, given my current fluey state, a bit will get stuck.

Uggggh. Tell me about it! I find Miracles rather sickening... a little bit like those gross scotch mints that taste way too sweet for anny normal person to handle. As for We Built This City, just please shoot me in the head.

That happens to me soooooo much! Sometimes my songs mix by subject instead of by music, which is just weird. Plastic Fantastic Lover (yes, again) and Eat Starch Mom are a very odd combination, but they work together somehow.

YES! This happens a lot with 3/5 of a Mile In Ten Seconds a lot. And Won't You Try.

Songs from the same writer can generally be "portmanteaued". (Lewis Carroll's term for this kind of blending.) And it's very easy with folk songs that share the same or similar tune. I used to sing "It's our homeland, our own land, to cherish till our billy boils..." at school assembly.

And the Fleetwood Mac songs "The Chain" and "Gold Dust Woman". They sound sooo alike! It's easy to blend those in your head.

Well, the stuck one turned out to be Eskimo Blue Day, which is OK because it's a half-song half-instrumental. I can rearrange it in my head to avoid an annoying loop. (Thank goodness it wasn't The Farm - that's really awful!)

I must be in hell. The song that is in my head, after listening to the Sex Pistols, is "Xanadu" by Olivia Newton John. Where did that come from? "Please release me. let me go"!

Uggg.... You must be in hell.

Well, right now, I have What About Me, by QMS in my head. What a great band... so underrated, and almost entirely forgotten. What a tragedy.
