30 Day Blog Challenge--Day 20!!!! Something I Wish I Could Forget

We've all got songs that worm their way into our brains. Here are some of mine...

The Trashmen: Surfin' Bird
This may have been the first song that ever hammered its way into my brain and stayed there for over a month. I was a teenager, and I walked around begging total strangers to sing me a different song so I wouldn't go insane.

Willow Smith: I Whip My Hair Back and Forth
Even though this gets under my skin, it's also hypnotic. I'm not sure if it is the music or the dancing, but once I start, it's hard to stop.

Kung Fu Fighting
When my kids were little, someone gave us a hamster that sang this song and pretended to fight. I'm telling you this song played in my dreams for weeks before I finally trashed that thing.

It's Peanut Butter and Jelly Time
The first time I did Nanowrimo I found a web site that forced you to write quickly. If you didn't make your word count goal, this song would blast you as the punishment. Dang. I can't remember which website it was. Sorry!

Which songs can't you forget?


  1. A truly great collection of songs that you should never listen to. I managed to avoid clicking play on all of them, but only just barely. :D

  2. I made the mistake of clicking on the Willow Smith video. Ugh. I've already forgotten the music, but the image of paint splattering as she whips her hair like a drugged hooker made me feel sick.

    Write or Die--that's the application that tortures writers for thinking too much while drafting.

    Some of my worms are Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" and "Paparazzi", L'Arc~en~Ciel's "Blurry Eyes", half of the songs in Phantom of the Opera, and Madonna's "Like a Prayer". My biggest challenge is to not sing these at work.

  3. I've never thought about Willow Smith in quite those terms before. I'm sure it did make you feel sick!
