You got the touch
You got the power

After all is said and done
You've never walked, you've never run,
You're a winner

You got the moves, you know the streets
Break the rules, take the heat
You're nobody's fool

You're at your best when when the goin' gets rough
You've been put to the test, but it's never enough

You got the touch
You got the power

"You're standing by the grey ice water
Out in the wind, above ground out in the water

Become unfrozen, trying hard to forget her
You got a job up in Alaska
to save what the cannery pays
there ain't no way to spend it
On the arctic blast"

Funny you should mention that, the SKM has been alternating with Snoop for me today:

Don't get upset girl, that's just how it goes
I don't love you hoes, I'm out the do'"

These are the days you might fill
With laughter until you break
These days you might feel
A shaft of light
Make its way across your face
And when you do
Then you’ll know how it was meant to be
See the signs and know their meaning

I've had this stuck in my head for TWO DAYS NOW and it will not leave OVER AND OVER AND OVER ARGH

Honestly, the more ridiculous the snippet is, the harder it gets stuck in your head.

I've tried everything at this point. Private Dancer. Itchycoo Park. Nothing dislodges it. I try listening to other music, and it's fine while it's playing, but the moment I switch it off, I think "Oh, thank god that song's gone..." AND THE MOMENT I THINK ABOUT IT, IT'S BACK.

Just shoot me now. Is there any medication, prozac, ritalin, ANYTHING that can get rid of earworms?

procedurally generated todge (Masonic Boom), Tuesday, 27 July 2010 10:24 (twelve years ago) link

Oh, great, now I've got 'is it peace or is it prozac?' in my head.

But as that has dislodged 'it's just a ride' I suppose I should be grateful.
