Have you ever been pushed to the limit? Someone pushing your buttons? I guess we’ve all been there. I can’t take much drama these days, and God forbid if someone gets on my last nerve or makes me feel cornered. To quote Bill Bixby’s Incredible Hulk, “You won’t like me when I’m angry!” This older song by Drowning Pool always come to mind and then stays there when I’m at my limit. Let the bodies hit the floor!!
I’m laughing while trying to type this…
A few nights ago, I opened the refrigerator to grab my bottle of Kahlua Mudslide and immediately started to sing to the tune of The Sounds of Silence, the following lyrics:
Hello, Mudslide, my old friend… I’ve come to visit you again… Because I’m feeling bored and lonely…can’t go much longer without sleeping…and I’m sure with you I’ll sleep well…very well…
Well, it’s not perfect but that’s what came natural, although not in tune, and I hope you get a chuckle out of it. Feel free to finish the lyrics and share in the comments! I’m just not that talented! Enjoy!
It all started when I found and shared this meme on Facebook:
It reminded me of Lamb Chop and Shari…and The Song That Doesn’t End…which has been stuck in my head ever since! I’ve even been singing it aloud! Kill me now!
Have fun with this earworm, folks!!
Is it stuck in your head now?
I’m not a Country music fan these days, however back in the 90’s I sure was. It was a time in my life when I needed the calm and “down to earth” style I found in Country music. Things started to change when it seemed like every new artist was trying to sound like Garth Brooks or Alan Jackson. That’s when I switched back to good ol’ Rock music!
I still have a few favorites in the Country music category, though. Joe Diffie’s “Prop Me Up Beside The Jukebox (If I Die)” is one of them. I had this song pop into my head this morning and I remembered that Joe Diffie passed away from COVID19. He was 61 years old.
RIP Joe. I hope you know this song is forever imprinted on my memory!
The song, The Final Countdown, got stuck in my head over the weekend. Dad and I were discussing the pandemic and how we’re all in this together. We agreed that the longer we ignore the science, the longer it will take to get this under control.
We spoke of the millions who have contracted COVID-19, and the millions who will die unnecessarily before this is over IF we all don’t band together and do what needs to be done. I mean, a few minor inconveniences seems a much better plan for the future than being on a ventilator and dying alone. The last thing that came out of my mouth, which nearly brought me to tears was, “If we don’t get our shit together, this could be our final countdown.”
And that’s all it took for this song to get stuck in my head for 2 days, and now regrettably, every time I hear the song I will think of the year 2020 and how we have failed.
No, I don’t think it’s the end of the world, but it’s quite possibly the end of the world as we know it…. Well, shit. Now that song is stuck in my head!
