Songs I get stuck in my head a lot, v. 2

- Private Eyes by Hall and Oates
I've come to realize that I pretty much get the whole Hall and Oates catalog stuck in my head, which is funny because I didn't even realize I knew so many H&O songs. Might as well throw in Maneater and Kiss On My List. Damn, am I a Hall and Oates fan? This is a startling admission, even to myself.

- Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell (?)
I don't have any paranoid tendencies, really. Also, I don't listen to much 80's music. I swear.

- Werewolf Bar Mitzvah by Tracy Jordan
Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves.

- American Boy by Estelle featuring Kanye West
The chorus. I'm curious to know if West made up the line "dress smart like a London bloke / before he speaks his suit's bespoke," because that's kind of clever. I like that the video attempts to pass off what appears to be a chinchilla peacoat as "cute" -- also that Estelle proves that just because you're black and a professional musician doesn't mean that you can dance any better than me.

- Another Night, Another Dream by The Real McCoy 
Please, if you do nothing else on the internet today, click on that link right there.  Well, don't click if you somehow don't want to see a Sailor Moon themed fan video for one of the best 90's dance songs.  I get the part that goes "I talk talk, I talk to you" stuck in my head.  Good Lord, this woman needs to call the cops if she's being visited at night by what sounds like the chain-smoking superintendent of a rundown New York apartment complex.  As if the night visitor's voice wasn't creepy enough, here's what he has to say: "I am your lover, your brother / Hey sister let me cover your body with my love."


  1. this thread could also be titled "songs laazlo gets stuck in his wife's head on a daily if not hourly basis."

    payback's a bitch though. these days i have a plethora of profoundly earwormy kid show songs to draw from in retribution.

    also - i get 'private eyes' stuck in my head as well, independent of laazlo, due entirely to veronica mars.

  2. i'm with you on werewolf bar mitzvah... seth and i were singing that for weeks after we saw that episode.
