    I've never seen the movie, so it reminds me more of player pianos. And those people that, when they see a piano, feel compelled to play the one thing they know, and it's always that song.

    You should see the movie. It's great and the clothes are excellent.

    More often it's Chopsticks -- the most grating thing ever composed for wankers who can't really play the piano.

    Then there's the Moonlight Sonata. I just got off the phone, where I was put on hold and forced to listen to an insipid electronic tone version of this. It very nearly succeeded in drowning out Mandy, but, alas, not quite.

    I used to, all the time, when I was in the jazz band and listened to jazz a lot in high school. "Don't get around much anymore" was one of them that I specifically remember.

    That gets stuck in my head all the goddamn time. The melody is really hooky. I played jazz trombone in high school, so that probably explains it.

    I now have "Cum on Feel the Noize" stuck in my head from someone's comment about my avatar.

    In the same vein, I also often get "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" by Judas Priest, which I think is a really great song, stuck in my head. "Living After Midnight" isn't quite as catchy, but it's a good one too.

    According to the email forward I found him in, he's a 'hardcore' cat, but he's Dutch, so what that adds up to, I have no idea. I think he bumps along with Judas Priest pretty well, though.

    Oh, good lord yes! In fact any of those Paul McCartney & Wings numbers from the early 70s is a good candidate. Silly Love Songs just about tops my shit list.

    And yesterday, just when I thought things couldn't get any worse with Mandy, I got home from an evening out with "The Farmer in the Dell" going through my head (WTF??). I didn't have the heart to blame it on the margaritas.

    The lowest of the low, however, is Kumbaya. If that ever gets stuck in my head, I may end up bludgeoning myself to death with a blunt instrument.

    following on a similar tip to my Rancid nomination, I heard 'Knowledge' by Operation Ivy tonight for the first time in years. It may be in my head til like Tuesday now.
