Songs stuck in my head

I wanted to preserve this epic battle on the blog. It took place a few days ago via Facebook, but it seems there is a correlation between the six people I know who don’t use Facebook still and the six people who read holySmith!

Hmm.

Anyway. This battle started when I posted this video from YouTube. I had a song stuck in my head which happened to be “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty. For this, I blame my mother’s radio listening habits during my childhood.

holySmith! Note on the link above: It’s funny that the same song which was stuck in my head on January 23, 2007 was the same song that started this battle on Facebook. Cosmic.

“I’ve had this song in my head. . .so now it can be in yours, too.”

This was the shot that started the war. Soon, my friend and office mate, Todd, chimed in and eventually, my neighbor, Nick threw down. It wasn’t long before another friend/office mate, Jeley, was also in the fray. Below is the complete comment thread. I’ve linked to the videos so that you can experience the same thrills as we did when this was happening.

I hope that you all click on every one of these and that these songs will haunt your heads, too.

Todd: die

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=840B27zYfOk&fmt=18

Listen to them side by side, and you won’t be able to tell who sings what, they were both written by the same producers…that’s how POWERFUL they are.
