criminal minds gideon kill fast

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.

Comments

Once I had a mashup of "Underground," from Labyrinth, and Buffy St. Marie's "Soulful Shade of Blue" stuck in my head for days.
Oh... dear...

Yep, that stuck right in the old brain, that did.

Ow.

Here's hoping I can cure it with Vanilla Ice / Skinny Puppy mashup.
"The Bear Necessities" from The Jungle Book, and Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side." Stuck in my head for days.
*snicker*
My subconscious: Still really stuck on inobvious patterns...
Gosh, I would love to actually hear that! now I'm wishing *I* had the tech skills.
Your subconscious definitely moves in interesting formations. *grin*
I played all 3 youtubes at once. It was... interesting. But not horrible.
IT'S STILL IN THERE!

The Universal Earworm Cleaner

Sing Weird Al's "Spider-Man" twice. It clear out all earworms.
*sigh*

I really need to finish the music studio.
After the first night of rehearsing the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" with my band, I woke up the next morning with Justin Timberlake singing "Sexyback" in my brain over the guitar riff, and realized that they meshed perfectly. The result can be heard here.
I couldn't find a Sexyback-lyrics-sung-over-Seven-Nation-Army song on that page...? The only related thing I found was the straight Seven Nation Army, which didn't seem to have any Timberlake in it.
We did the first verse of "Sexyback" as a bonus verse in the middle of the song, with a switch to me on vocals. The thought was that it would be a cool WTF moment for live audiences, of which we had exactly one between working up that tune and splitting up the band.
Wow, I've had a mashup of two songs in my head before, but never three. Good work, there.
Yarrgh! Thank dog I don't like Marilyn Manson enough to know the lyrics to Beautiful People! (and the version of Show Biz Kids that plays in my head is the Rickie Lee Jones version from "It's Like This", which unfortunately lacks the riff but definitely does the ironic better).
Wow. That's actually quite an impressive three-way mash-up!

Would that be considered a màshage à toi? (:
I have that same problem! I can never get just *one* song stuck in my head! It's usually more like three or four.

It might be interesting if they weren't always so horribly mismatched. Bauhaus, zydeco, and Schoolhouse Rock should not share the same headspace.
