and for the coupay-de-gras, they're outrageous

When I woke up this morning, my brain began by providing a mashup of "Beautiful People," "Show Biz Kids," and "Baby You're A Rich  Man." (ETA: Lyrics to two of those three songs not worksafe if your workplace discourages use of the Eff Word.)

You're all lucky I don't have the tech skills to share what I am hearing between my ears.

Brain, why can't you just give me a normal earworm?

It goes kinda like this:

How does it feel to be
One of the beautiful
People?
[The beautiful people, the beautiful people]
Baby you're a rich man,
{When the poor people sleeping with the shade on the light}
Baby you're a rich man,
{When the poor people sleeping with the shade on the light}
Baby you're a rich man too
{When the poor people sleeping all the stars come out at night.}
[Hey you, what do you see?
Something beautiful, something free?]
{And in all my travels}
How does it feel to be
{As the facts unravel}
One of the beautiful
{I've found this to be true:}
People?
[The beautiful people, the beautiful people]
Baby you're a rich man,
{She go to lost wages}
Baby you're a rich man,
{Lost wages}
Baby you're a rich man too
{Oh honey let me tell you}
You keep all your money in a big brown bag, inside a zoo
[Hey you, are you trying to be mean?]
{Well I've been around the world}
What a thing to do
[If you live with apes man, it's hard to be clean]
{And I've been in the Washington Zoo}
[Hey you, are you trying to be mean?
If you live with apes man, it's hard to be clean]


Yeah, now you see my issue. I bet if you clicked all three links at once you'd get the idea....


It starts with that dirty Steely Dan guitar lick, too.
