How I feel about having woken up with "Send in the Clowns" stuck in my head

Well, let's just say I don't feel good about it.

Interestingly, I learned that this mournful gem (as performed in my head, that's what it is. Like a sad emerald, or a doleful opal, or a dispirited topaz) is from Sondheim's A Little Night Music. I thought it was from some musical about a circus. Is there a musical about a circus? Goodbye And Thanks For All the Rubber Shoes? It's Always The Poodle? Honk is a Four-Letter Word? (that last one could also be a musical about traffic). Carnival?

I thought it was from Carnival, but I was wrong.

Unfortunately now I have that free credit report song in my head because that one sits in there ready to jump in whenever there's a silent moment. It's like mold. Or rust. Or pink eye (a germ which is apparently always around, waiting for a weakness in your immune system).

The FCR.com Jingle, the rap or the cowboyish one?

In my head for the last hour has been the techno/dancish version of Poison by Alice Cooper, but the one with the girl singing.

The jingle, "Ted you better get this damn work done before 6:00 PM or you'll be in trouble!" Keeps ringing in my head....Do you know how many lives have probably been lost because I get side tracked and don't work on my life saving projects for third world countries due to my frequent visits and posts on this blog?

I loved Anonymous' last comment...Bye the way, I totally figured out who anonymous is and it's not the gorgeous European swimsuit model that I once thought...close though!

Okay, I'm off to play Superman! Have a great day blog people!

No one should have the free credit report tune playing in their head. That ad is right up there with Shamwow on the annoying scale. There's a special place in hell reserved for those people.

The version of Send in the Clowns I remember is by Judy Collins. I always liked her voice, but she was a little weird. Just a little.

Try having this song in your head all weekend, it'll drive ya nuts.

PS. Don't worry about the 18+ thing, theres nothing bad on it, unless maybe if you know spanish there might be.

Consider yourself lucky. I've had Culture Club songs in my head for a week.

When I ride my motorcycle on long trips, I often start to sing one song over and over to myself to pass the time on the interstate. Is it a cool song like Unchained by Van Halen? Or perhaps any Iron Maiden songs? No! I usually find myself singing the theme song to "All In The Family." (I sing a mean Archie Bunker)
