Musical

I will admit that one of the highlights of last night's karaoke brawl was the young man, easily only in his early 20s, who got up and sang Harry Chapin's "W.O.L.D." I was very impressed that he knew enough of Chapin to want to get up, drunkenly, in front of a crowd of strangers and sing it. I was like, "Brethren!" And he didn't do such a bad job of it, either.

Well, ok. It was one of the musical highlights of last night. There were other non-musical highlights. But this is a public entry.

ALSO OF NOTE: How come ELO lyrics are so inane when printed out, but somehow kick incredible amounts of ass when actually musically involved? Mr. Blue Sky, I'm looking at you. See also: Don't Bring Me Down

ALSO ALSO OF NOTE: The following was written by pogue23, a member of the Something Awful forums. He started a thread last night and god damn it's evil. I am including it behind the cut because it is inherently evil. Note that I will not be offering a link to said song since I don't have it hosted at the moment, but if I were to host it, I'd be even more evil because then I'd be an enabler.

That said,

The Awful Forums > Main > General Bullshit > "Elvira" by the Statler Brothers is the SHITTIEST SONG OF ALL TIME!
i dont know why, but this song has been latently stuck in my head since i was like 6 years old. i heard it as the musical backdrop to an Entertainment Tonight segment about Elvira, i still remember her big bouncy boobs from when she was still the only goth-slut in hollywood, anyway, for some reason it got locked in my head at that tender young age and its never completely left.

every now and again i'll be doing something mundane and i start to hear it..

GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW
GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW
HI YO SILVER AAAAAYWAAAAYYY!!


the worst thing? i fucking hate country!
save for Johnny Cash, Mearle Haggard the Like, i've always had a Simmering disdain for Country music, especially the simpletonian early 80's Shit like this song

GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW
GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW


i can be doing nothing.. driving my car.. folding sheets.. having sex, and it will randomly pop into my head like some sort of dementia

GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW

i've always been able to sublimate it back down into my head where it lay dormant for most of the time.. it would only pop up to annoy me occasionally. only it had become such a common thing, that i never really got annoyed by it.. it was just there and then it wasnt.

so the other night, i'm here.. romping around in GBS and it Hits me..

HAY! WHY DONT I GO SEE IF I CAN FIND THAT ELVIRA SONG
-big mistake

i got drunk and passed out with my mp3 player on a loop.
and now it is flooding my head with GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW


FUCK YOU STADLER BROTHERS FOR WRITING SUCH A SHITTY IMPOSSIBLE TO KILL OUT OF MY BRAIN SONG!!FUCK YOU FUCKING FUCKS!!!

GIDDY UP! -A-HOOM PAPA -HOOM PAPA MOW MOW

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!


oh my god, am i starting to like it?
oh no.. i'm playing it again
it's so horrible, and yet beautiful in it's awfulness.
-i am in hell-
