Technology can turn bad so easily.
I guess it could be worse. There must be thousands of songs more annoying than that. …admittedly, I don’t know that song, so I can’t say for sure!
Tortimer has music while he works.
Now that song will be stuck in my head for a freaking month!!!
I don’t get this one. I mean I know the song, but I don’t understand the joke.
Could be worse. My classroom in the last elementary school where I taught was right next to the music room. Due to asbestos removal, there was an opening in the ceiling between the two rooms, so they may as well have been inside my room singing:
♬ The wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round! The wheels on the bus go round and round, all through the town! ♬
Happens rarely but Georgia is drawing the height difference between her and hubie
Please! No threads listing earworm songs without the first post as a “spoiler alert” warning, K? :)
I’ve been told that children are easily programmed to do repetitive tasks.
This has little irrelevance to today’s strip, but I’ll post it anyway, just because:
I’ve been thinking – if the jet engine had never been developed, the history of aviation would be completely different.
And there would be a New Wave ’80s band named the B-29s.
One of the great bands out of Athens Ga which back in the ’80s was one of the meccas of what was then known as college rock and is now more or less either called alternative or Indie rock.
In the early fifties my favorite girl singer was Teresa Brewer. She recorded a song called Skinnie Minnie Fish Tail. I used to go to a lunch place that had a juke box and play that song over and over almost every day. As soon as I had a few nickels, I would go and put another nickel in and music, music, music. One day I went to play it and found out the manager disconnected the juke box. I have a T.B. greatest hits CD and when the song come on, it brings back those memories.
What is a Destry Hearth? I googled and found nothing.
Also, “Love Shack” has nothing to do with either Courtney Love or Shaquille O’Neal.
Could be worse . . . could be “Call Me Maybe” ;p
Could be really worse. What if the Children decide they want to hear the Shoutmunks?
In a couple weeks when the kids tire of “love Shack” they will program it for “Rock Lobster”.
Well, here it is: the B-52s: Love Shack
If you see a faded sign by the side of the road that says
Fifteen miles to the, ice cream parlor, yeah
I’m headin’ down to the creamery
Lookin’ for some frozen dairy
Headed for the creamery, the creamery
I got me a car, the whole gang is right here
And we’re headin’ on down to the creamery
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about twenty
So bring lots of napkins and some spending money
The creamery is a little old place where
We can get together
Fudge ripple, baby
Chocolate syrup, baby and red peanuts
You ordered what?
Tin roof sundae!
I don’t gets it. It’s about some song?
Well, now I have: “Tin roof…Rust,” going round and round in my head for the rest of the day.
John Conner’s on Line One.
I love that song! And the rest of the B52s repertoire.
You say that like it’s a bad thing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SOryJvTAGs and yes, that is RuPaul in white leather hot pants and a FIERCE Afro wig at 2:05 and following….
At least the kids have good musical taste ;)
Many years ago, I asked the clerk at the music store next to the theater where I worked who he’d suggest as an intro group to ‘punk’. He chose the B-52s. Uh……………………………………………………..
I changed the name that mine responds to so that the kids and grandkids do not know it. I also don’t activate it while they are over. I wonder how many times the man would have to change the name to keep the kids from activating it.
Ear Worm Alert! For those who need a new one:
My Voice Assistant apparently responds to “ghosts”. Even loud sounds seem to be mistaken for commands. I DO NOT have it connected to any appliances and never will.
Aww, is this the first experience with a mondegreen for the Boy and Girl?
Please tell me this is based on actual events
Years ago, my boyfriend and I rented a recording booth and did a karaoke version of Love Shack. It actually turned out really well. It’s a great song to sing along to, and the words are easy to understand once you’ve heard it a few times.
alven and the chikmunks christmas song plays on 100000000 volume ME:NO MY SENSTITIVE EARS, NO PLS GOD NO, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO-cuts to small domesticated dragons chamol:and thats why christmas music sucks, because it destoys your ears, your privacy, and makes you stressed, but the holidays great, too bad the music ruins it, anyway, back to you herald. herald: heres why dragons should cook for humans. chamol: thats not the- herald: I LIKE COOKING OK. chamol: no, I know but I told you we were going to record birds with flamis first, wait wheres flamis? flamis in sleep:peanut butter, chocolat muffins, cute birds, song birds. chamol: oh never mind I was looking forowd to- herald: YIPIIIEEEEEEEEeeeeeeee, oh sorry. flamis:you woke me from my mourning bird snooze*drinks coffee from coffee full pillow* now cut to where I do my part. durkin: oooooooooooookeeeeeeeeeee dokkeyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!
Saw this yesterday & it’s too apropos not to share even though it does have a “bad word” in it:
At times like these I am so glad I don’t follow popular culture!
OT: Missing my best bud today…
Baby Shark is the worst song.
“Destry Hearth” is just an anagram of “Darth Hestery”. Coincidence!? o_0
“Destry initiate auto destruct”
I refuse to learn smart speaker language. You have to memorize too many exact phrases. They respond to sounds, not language.
I still have that CD! … (I do skip that song more often than not)! … :)
Spin the bottle!
They may not be the lyrics to Love Shack, but everyone knows that they hear something else in the lyrics than what they actually are.
" TIN CAN !! " … " BUSTED !! "
Then IF, " These are not the lyrics to ‘Love Shack’ " … Then, it follows that,
" These are not the droids you’re looking for. " …
After all, it’s a COSMIC THING !!! … :)
Because I lose track of time, my partner has programmed the Robot Servant (aka Echo) in my office/sewing room to remind me about meals (“I’m hungry. Let’s have breakfast.” in the morning and “I think my blood sugar is low. Oh wait, I don’t have blood.” at lunch time). Sometime it startles the heck out of me. when I’m deep into a project. Recently it started reminding me to post a picture of Albert A. Cat on Instagram once a week (“Cat Face Friday alert!”).
Tortimer sure comes in handy.
I’m surprised the children didn’t have it playing “Baby Shark….”
Georgia? Are you reading comments to see what all different songs we come up with?
This actually makes sense. Back in 2000 there was an ad for Best Buy showing a man vacuuming while singing and dancing with a headset on. Then the plug gets pulled out of the wall and we hear that he’s been singing (badly) to “Love Shack.”
