What's your Earwig?!

By gadgetgirl ·
According to Maecuff, an Earwig is a tune that gets through your ear into your brain, and drives you to distraction!

As an earwig-squasher, how about posting your earwig on the discussion to see if one of your peers can get rid of it for you?

It needn?t just be earwigs ? it could be that tune that you heard a few notes of on the way into work, and is constantly playing in your head.

Or you?re trying to find a particular track but you don?t know the artist.

Or you know the artist but not the track.

I know there are sites out there that do this, but I think this will be much more fun! Besides that, it?s Friday, we?re all on wind-down for the weekend anyway.

(that?s apart from the fact that the majority of people where I work are still constrained by the fact that we?ve all lost our user drive on the network??.ohwhatapitynevermind?? and I?m bored??.) ;\

My particular earwig this morning ? and one that I don?t want squished ? is a Status Quo track which was blasting on the radio on the way in called ?The Party Ain?t Over Yet?????and my boss keeps asking me to stop head-banging over the keyboard??

One for the older Brits

This morning on the BBC News, they interviewed Roger McGough about his poetry. Unfortunately, they also showed a clip of him in Scaffold, singing Lily the Pink.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh! F**king Medicinal Compounds. The last time that I heard that it took years to get it out of my brain.

Here you go, GG. This'll shift the Quo.

We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
The saviour of the human race
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case.

Mr. Frears
had sticky-out ears
and it made him awful shy
and so they gave him medicinal compound
and now he's learning how to fly.

Brother Tony
Was notably bony
He would never eat his meals
And so they gave him medicinal compound
Now they move him round on wheels.

We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
The saviour of the human race
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case.

Old Ebeneezer
Thought he was Julius Caesar
And so they put him in a Home
where they gave him medicinal compound
and now he's Emperor of Rome.

Johnny Hammer
Had a terrible stammer
He could hardly say a word
And so they gave him medicinal compound
Now he's seen (but never heard)!

We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
The saviour of the human race
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case.

Auntie Millie
Ran willy-nilly
When her legs, they did recede
And so they rubbed on medicinal compound
And now they call her Millipede.

Jennifer Eccles
had terrible freckles
and the boys all called her names
but she changed with medicinal compound
and now he joins in all their games.

We'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
The saviour of the human race
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case.

Lily the Pink, she
Turned to drink, she
Filled up with paraffin inside
and despite her medicinal compound
Sadly Picca-Lily died.

Up to Heaven
Her soul ascended
All the church bells they did ring
She took with her medicinal compound
Hark the herald angels sing.

Oooooooooooooooo Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'll drink a drink a drink
To Lily the Pink the Pink the Pink
The saviour of the human race
For she invented medicinal compound
Most efficacious in every case.

no, pet,

NOTHING can shift Quo, and especially not this pathetic tune. That must have been at the top of the charts for weeks - even my grandmother knew the words to that one!

I'll stick with my Quo, thanks, even though Charlotte Church's "I love it when you call my name" is on next door, and is infiltrating the vibes....!

Doesn't effect me

Since I don't know the tune...

But after reading the words, now the Hollies song "Jennifer Eccles" is in my brain....

It reminded me of the Philosopher's Song

by Montgomery Gator In reply to Doesn't effect me

Similar meter and rhythm of the Monty Python work. Monty Python is driving me crazy!!! First the Traffic Light song, then I woke up this morning to "The Liberty Bell March", originally a patriotic American song now better known as the Monty Python Flying Circus theme.

And, because it's Friday

by neilb@uk In reply to One for the older Brits

Two verses that didn't make the record...

Oh Mrs. Murphy
(Mrs. Murphy)
Was perturbed because she couldn't seem to pee
Till she took some of Lily's compound
And now they run a pipeline to the sea!

And Peter Whelan
(Peter Whelan)
He was sad because he only had one nut
Till he took some of Lily's compound
And now they grow in clusters 'round his butt



Still got the bloody tune!

I don't wish to know that....

by gadgetgirl In reply to And, because it's Friday

....... kindly leave the stage.....

GG

(some bright spark just started singing "gimme gimme gimme a man after midnite" [well, anytime, really] along the corridor...it's unhooked my Quo....yahboosucks....)

Lucky you!

by NickNielsen In reply to One for the older Brits

I made the mistake of watching one of those VH1 where are they nows on one-hit wonders

"Oh, Mickey, he's so fine..."

Need I say more?

Aaaargh

by Bizzo In reply to One for the older Brits

Neil, can I just say that I hate you.

I read your post about an hour ago, took me a while to remember the tune, and now it's not going anywhere. It's there, squirming in my head, threatening to eat up what little sanity I have.

Thank you.

You're welcome!

by neilb@uk In reply to Aaaargh

But if it's any consolation, reading your post has just restarted it for me!

On three!

Oooooooooooooooo weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'll drink a drink a drink...

Bugger!!!!!!!
