Magic Star Morello

I'm tootling about my day, emailing here, inspecting there, throw in a meeting or two for good measure, sign some crap. About half way through the day, I realize I've had the theme song to "My Little Pony" crammed in as a running sound track ALL DAY LONG (I guess it's more of a jingle than a theme song, but at this point, it's semantics)

As bad as that is, it is nowhere near as annoying as once you notice it and can't get rid of it. Something had to be done.

I thought for a moment that maybe if I forced a completely different kind of song on myself... Let's see, how about some Rage Against The Machine? Excellent choice!

No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop us now

Very nice. Working like a charm. Until:

We're the renegades of funk
We're the renegades of … My Little Pony, My Little Pony…

And that, officers, is why I had to bring the flame thrower in to take out the MLP aisle. It just had to stop. You can see my point.

"Yes ma'am. Sorry to keep you, ma'am"

If there is a god, I have now passed this fucking ear worm on to you and I can proceed at peace.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. ... you can comb their hair...

    and in return, I give you:

    D-d-d-d-d DORA
    D-d-d-d-d DORA
    Dora, Dora, Dora the Explora

  2. come on lets go to nowhere land,
    with maggie and the ro-o-oast beef

  3. DAMMIT! Grrrr...

    It's a wonderful night...
    (ah, gotta love my old stand-by ear worm)

  4. There are only two songs you can replace an earworm with, and its a total toss-up as to whether or not these are an improvement. You can choose:

    1) The old Hockey Night in Canada theme song


    2) Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom theme song.

    I'm sorry, but those are the rules.

  5. ah the joys of no Cable as a child and no tv now. :)

  6. Don't know those cartoons, but there are plenty of songs that can be used to chase out the offending ones... need some hints?

    If you change your mind, I'm the first in line...

    Or Baltimora's "Tarzan Boy"... "Oh ah oh ah oh ah oahh!", sort of the canonical bad song that's hard to get our of your head... "Night to night, Gimme the other, gimme the other"
