to desire the replica

posted on: August 13th, 2010

You know when you get a song stuck in your head and it plays on a never ending reel through your brain until you want to shoot yourself in the face?

Yeah, that. I have it.

It’s a song from”Coke Machine Glow” -Gord Downie’s old solo project- called Vancouver Divorce. All morning I’ve been hearing;

“Sittin’ here at the Horton’s, so you know this is important.”

All of you in Canada have probably just cracked a wee little smile of familiarity and nostalgia while most of you in the US are saying “Huh?”

On the up side though, at least it’s not the fucking “Chicken Dance.” Na na na na na na na na, Na na na na nana na……….

Sorry if I just implanted you with that little piece of fresh hell.

My earworm today is Yellow Ledbetter.

I can’t remember the chicken dance tune and I’m not trying to so you haven’t ruined MY day.

However, I’m off to Youtube to check yours out.

Kate Says:

It’s better than the song that never ends!

Stever Says:

…, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue singing it forever just because….This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend.

Kim Says:

hahahaha. You guys are clearly crazy (why else would you be here though?) And Jeannie- Yellow Ledbetter is a FANTASTIC song to have in your head since it doesn’t matter whether or not you actually know the words. I don’t even think Mr. Vedder knows the damn words!

My mum was telling me Glasgow now has a Tim Horton’s. WTF? I need to investigate this upon my next visit. I have a Horton’s large black in front of me now and it’s the only thing keeping me from strangling my loud neighbour who’s hammering next door.

The songs that get stuck in my head are usually the last songs you’d ever want in your head. It’s never the great songs with me, always the trash. Like fucking Ace of Base. I HATE ACE OF BASE.

Kim Says:

Glasgow? WTF!!?????
Uhm… Ace of Base is illegal these days veggie. Punishable by Celine Dion.

na! na! na! na!
*clap!* *clap!* *clap!* *clap!*

Bastard.

Dave Says:

Ha! that’s what you get for listening to Ace of Base in the first place, I tried to tell people. Walked around with earmuffs on for two years.

Brian Smart Says:

Had this on my i-pod and on the 22 hour drive home from Edmonton over the last few days sang and hummed this until wife told me to shut the hell up…seemed like an appropriate “road song” and got stuck in my head (note: I’m no Chris Cornell):

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind
I am the sky here
I am not your automn moon
I am the night
The night

Nope. I’ve got the song Electric Demons In Love by Electric Six stuck in my head. It’s been there for days, and probably will be for a few more. Not that I’m complaining. You should look it up on YouTube. Ridiculously awesome!
