But "Supertrouper" still rocks....

Friday, October 21, 2005

On the way to work this morning, I was rabidly flipping through my radio channels when I got

"One Night In Bangkok"

And, suprising even myself, I knew all the words. Now I can't get the fucking song out of my head. Thank you very much "two guys from Abba" - Swedish pricks. Or maybe they're Norweigan...I can never tell. They all look alike.

I hate it when some retro bad song gets awoken in your head and then can't get back to sleep. At the garage the other day I actually heard the Pina Colada song, which has decided to live in the active part of my brain for three days now......

Dawn, now I'm not telling you waht to do here b/c this is your blog, but I think you should (and I don't want to name any names here, so we'lll just call her um, "Mindy") block comments from people who leave potentially threatening songs that expose people to the "song in my head all day" syndrome.

Dammit, now I'll be singing 'Copacabana' all day.

Did you know that 'One Night In Bangkok' was from a short-lived (like one week run) Broadway musical called 'Chess'? It's true.

At the Copa,
Copa-cabana . . .

Oh, and Who is the musical genius who decided that "More than Words" was such a good song, the first time, that it needed to be remade?

JenfromBoston said...

Yeah, More than words and Roxette's "listen to your heart" has also been remade. AWFUL. PAINFULLY *AWFUL*. Nails on the chalboard, would almost consider eating a sardine to get out of listening to it bad.

And the thing is - theres a whole slew of kidd that don't even know there's an orignial.

Jen I am so sorry but really Dawn started it. But if you ever feel up to it get Dave Barry's Book of Bad Songs I wet my pants, no really
with lines like...
when someone perhaps a trusted family member -- will out of the clear blue, hum just a few notes of the song"(I Never promised you a) Rose Garden." Since this is a song that you have detested from the first instant you heard it, your brain has assigned it a prime memory location. The song immediately wakes up and starts echoing in your skull so that no matter how hard you try to focus all you can hear is that woman's smarmy voice singing I beg your PARdon I never promised you a ROSE gar DEN. And since this is the only part of the song your brain remembers it repeats it over and over and OVER AND OVER until you want to commit suicide!!

There is more but I really don't want you to hate me

..."the creme de la creme of the chess world in a show with everything but Yul Brynner..."

thanks for getting that in my head!

oh my God - i just had that More Than Words conversation with my husband. I said: "you have *got* to be kidding me - More Than Words?" and if possible it is suckier now than it was then.

It cracks me up to listen to that song now because there is so much about it that I just didn't get back when it was Top 40, like that line "...but the queens WE use would not excite you."
