I suppose for a lot of us it changes very often, but let's try...
For me, actually, it's Ubangi Stomp, from Warren Smith to all the Cats versions but with a special mention to the "official" on their first album.

Since I Fell For You, Lenny Welch. Whenever I have the house to myself I sing it at top volume, often in a terrible impersonation of Dinah Washington.

The dj inside my head seems to have a mind of his own and is really spinin' the wax when I first wake up. It has been Setzer, Seger, or a dirty limerick from my teenage years. Sometimes I think it's punishment for not gettin' out of bed or encouragement to get out of bed.

Rolling Eyes I don't know what goes on in my head most of the times, but for the past 2 years or so I find myself most of the day I get Carl Perkins rockin my brain with Glad All Over followed with One More Shot, but lately the DJ has been trying to throw in Lee Rocker's Evil and Bulletproof, and ya know I haven't played a CD or Vinyl for some weeks now.

Oh you're mean, mean, mean just plain evil.......

Hey Setzerado, for a while back there I also had Red Cadillac and a Black Moustache on repeat in my head, that was hard to get rid of.

For me, it's been Drive Like Lightning, Crash Like Thunder. Yikes. I hope it's not foreshadowing something....

...Must not click through link... Just the title alone betrays the song's awfulness... Resisting urge to click... Body strong... Mind weak...

*click*

Ack! Dammit! What the hell is this? Curse you, Debs! Kid - you... you... enabler!

As bad as it is, I think I avoided a close enough listen for any real permanent damage.

Nope. Not stuck in my head. Thanks to Andi's Jumpin' Like Mad programme, the song rattling round inside my noggin is still Baby Blue Eyes. Rockabilly Rules!

Great songs I always seem to hear Are you lonesome tonight in fact I would like to here that from The Cats heavy on the Bigsby

Are you lonesome tonight,
Do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the worlds a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I'll never know.
Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and Im standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you wont come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down

I wake up to the radio every morning, so I usually get stuck with a different song most days. But one song that I always come back to when left to my own devices is "One Tin Soldier." Especially the chorus:
Go ahead and hate your neighbor,
Go ahead and cheat a friend.
Do it in the name of Heaven,
You can justify it in the end.
There won't be any trumpets blowing
Come the judgement day,
On the bloody morning after....
One tin soldier rides away.

Learned the song on a family vacation to MN/WI one summer when I was 12 or 13. Go figure?

RAB--I beg to differ....Blondes definitely have more fun (even if Clairol has to help). What color is burnette? Red?

That's Burnette - as in Johnny and Dorsey - the ones who formed a trio with Paul Burlison in Memphis 1952, were finalists in an "American Idol"-type (Ted Mack Original Amatuer Hour) competition in 1956, and their all-too brief discography as the Rock-n-Roll Trio gave us such amazing tunes as Train Kept-a-Rollin', Baby Blue Eyes, Sweet Love On My Mind, Lonesome Train, Rock Therapy, and Rock Billy Boogie. Their influence extended to artists such as The Yardbirds, Aerosmith, The Beatles, and three guys from Massapequa who had some success recording as Stray Cats, sending countless listeners to the original Burnette Brothers recordings, giving them a whole new generation of fans.

To be honest, I have no idea if the Burnettes had more fun. But I sure have fun listening to their music.

I'm sure there's a blonde joke in there somewhere...

The Burnettes and Blondie have been getting a lot of attention on these forums lately. Maybe I should start a thread about Red Prysock or the Red Elvises.

BTW - That Billy Jack song One Tin Soldier - I distinctly remember singing that song in a 4th-grade school choir. What a messed up song for a bunch of 10-year-olds to be singing. Of course, the program may have included John Denver's Sunshine On My Shoulders, Barry Manilow's Daybreak, and possibly something from The Carpenters.

Holy crap! No wonder I need Rock Therapy!

Curse me? *I* didn't supply a link (on purpose, I might add). I didn't want to impose that song on anyone. If someone went through all the trouble to hunt it down after I didn't post a link, I figure they deserve what they get.

One of my friends had sent it to me that morning, with the sole purpose of getting it stuck in my head. It worked.

No worries, Darlin'. I'm over it now. Unfortunately, I was at Walgreen's about 1/2 an hour ago, and I had the misfortune of having Captain and Tennille's Muskrat Love play during an extended stay in the checkout line. Now that song is stuck in my head.

In the interest of accuracy, I must apologize. It's The Captain and Tennille.

Rickabilly,

This post absolutely slayed me. I remember doing EVERY ONE of those songs in grade school music class! The "something from the Carpenters" would have to be "(I'm on the) Top Of the World". Man, I think we did that one every week. Another biggie was "Sweet Caroline."

I want you all to know: I love coming here, but this thread is SICK. It's like forcing ourselves to wallow in some weird self-torture or something. Be warned: the next time I have one stuck in my head, I will pay you all back, big time! Like for instance...ohh, I don't know...
...
...
...


THE BRADY BUNCH THEME!!!! Smile

Have a nice couple of hours getting rid of THAT one,
Dave (aka Bear85)

PS: Okay, I should back off a bit. I just read the top of the thread, and it wasn't quite so evil until Peroxide and Rick got me onto my 5th grade flashback. Now I'm actually kind of envious...you all get good songs stuck in your heads. For me, it's usually the Gilligan's Island song, or some other piece of tripe!

I usually got about 3 Cats songs rollin' around up there somewhere, mainly:

Lookin' Better Every Beer
(She's) Sexy and Seventeen
My One Desire

Then, if I wanna get some good finger-tappin' done (or all-out dash-slappin', fist-through-the-roof-of-the-car rockin' out!), while I'm drivin':

Rockabilly Rules (that guitar just gets your adrenaline pumpin', don't it?)
18 Miles to Memphis
... just about anything else is good in the car.

I gotta admit, though... the other day, my buddy caught me beltin' out the theme from "Sixteen Candles"... badly, too.

Ubangi Stomp is actually in my head a lot, but only the chorus. Also Bring it Back Again, Dig Dirty Doggy (dig,dig). 18 Miles from Memphis-but only the "i've got a rocket in my pocket" part.

But the things that get stuck in my head the most are commercial songs (I guess Im really weak minded?). Another thing is the music from shows when there is no talking, seguay (not a speller) music. Like the music played when one of the Brady kids come home from school before saying anything to Alice.

Also, since I work at an elementary school, and the library and the computer lab are in the same room, I get Mary Had a Little Lamb, ABC's, and Camptown (Is that the name?) Ladies stuck in my head. It's really annoying. Especially when I find myself whistling it really loud in the middle of a store.
