    Re: Songs that get stuck in your head

    A clothing store here is using All I Want For Christmas is You for their Christmas comemrcials (TV and print) so whenever I pass a billboard of it, the song gets stuck in my head. At least it's their version as opposed to Mariah Carey's which I really can't stand.

    Re: Songs that get stuck in your head

    I constantly getting songs stuck in my head. Not the same one, just different ones that I might happen to have heard on tv, a radio, or someone else singing... or even read something that reminded me of lyrics.

    My current one stuck in my head is Rock The Boat by Hues Corporation. It's been stuck here since last week when I heard it on Don't Forget The Lyrics, that Wayne Brady-hosted game show.

    Our love is like a ship on the ocean
    We've been sailing with a cargo full of love and devotion

    Rock the boat
    Don't rock the boat, baby
    Rock the boat
    Don't tip the boat over

    I'm not sure if this qualifies as being stuck in my head (a phenomenon with which I am intimately familiar, having survived 6 solid months of Leaving on a Jet Plane, followed by 4 months of La donna e mobile) but if I spontaneously start singing, it is almost always (probably 95% of the time) M'appari, tutt' amor. If I sing a second song, it is almost always Tra voi belle.

    Well thank God I can't catch that problem from you, Newf. I have no freaking idea what those songs are.
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    M'appari is a very pretty aria about love at first sight, the joy it brings, and the crushing despair that (inevitably ) follows. I sat bolt upright the first time that I heard Tra voi belle, it was that catchy. It's kind of sexist (gasp!); basically, the tenor is asking a group of women, "OK, who's the lucky one who gets to be with me?" (Later on in Act 1, the same tenor sings the beautiful Donna non vidi mai (never have I seen such a beautiful woman) so I guess that he isn't too sexist at heart.)

    Sorry, couldn't resist.


    All my bags are packed
    Im ready to go
    Im standin here outside your door
    I hate to wake you up to say goodbye
    But the dawn is breakin
    Its early morn
    The taxis waitin
    Hes blowin his horn
    Already Im so lonesome
    I could die

    So kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that youll wait for me
    Hold me like youll never let me go
    cause Im leavin on a jet plane
    Dont know when Ill be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go

    Theres so many times Ive let you down
    So many times Ive played around
    I tell you now, they dont mean a thing
    Evry place I go, Ill think of you
    Evry song I sing, Ill sing for you
    When I come back, Ill bring your wedding ring

    So kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that youll wait for me
    Hold me like youll never let me go
    cause Im leavin on a jet plane
    Dont know when Ill be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go

    Now the time has come to leave you
    One more time
    Let me kiss you
    Then close your eyes
    Ill be on my way
    Dream about the days to come
    When I wont have to leave alone
    About the times, I wont have to say

    Oh, kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that youll wait for me
    Hold me like youll never let me go
    cause Im leavin on a jet plane
    Dont know when Ill be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go

    But, Im leavin on a jet plane
    Dont know when Ill be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go
    Que me amat, amet et canem meum

    Not a problem I still like the song, and still sing it occasionally. It's been about 6 years since it possessed me.
