song-in-your-head syndrome

Right now, it's "Still on Fire" by Aztec Camera. It's so bad that I hum it as I fall asleep. A few weeks ago, it was "Midnight Train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight and the Pips. At least they're both pleasant.

Unlike Sage's new faux Spider-Man movie laptop that loops a single bit from the chorus of this very insipid (and, frankly, debilitating) Vengaboys song:

Hey now, hey now, here's what I say now
Happiness is just around the corner


Over and over and over and over again.

In car. With a little girl happily singing along. For hours and hours and hours.

Even Mr. Happyland himself wanted to hurl the laptop out of the car.

Instead, we decided to critique the lone lyric fragment and talked philosophy, over the killer beat, waiting for the battery to die.
