Yeah, this is someone's concert video, but it's fun.

I may have even posted this before, but such a good version of Just Another Day by Oingo Boingo:

I re-watched the 1986 Little Shop of Horrors in a vain attempt to get the bass riff and three-part harmony from Suppertime out of my head. Nope, it's still stuck there.

C'mon c'mon, it's suppertime, c'mon c'mon, it's supperti-i-ime, supperti-iiii-iiiime [repeat 5,000 times]

Dammit, Eric! I merely glanced at the title, and now I'm infected. The CDC needs to get on this song ASAP.

At the risk of going down the Jake and/or JasonL rabbit hole, this has been showing up on one of my Pandora stations, and it keeps sticking in my head.

But now every time I go there, I hear her voice.

I don't know why my brain does this to me, but it keeps bouncing between these two songs:

So pretty much since ... shit, since the trip hop 'splosion of the '90s with Massive Attack and Sneaker Pimps and so forth, I've had this slow-burn growth of indie-ish female vocalist bands. Expanded to the xx and the above-mentioned Phantogram, and then it was all-Wye-Oak-all-the-time.

But then I re-watched Scott Pilgrim vs The World last month, and it put this in my head:





So now my brain is all Metric and Land of Talk and Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Warpaint and Bittersweet and it won't stop.

I'd say kill me now but then I think of the Brie Larson version and then I get confused between her and Allison Brie and then I'm like whatever. And then that leads to Gillian Jacobs and then both Karen Gillan and Yvette Nicole Brown and then my imagination gets out of hand so ... what I'm saying is don't kill me now. But still this is a cry for help.

This one's been back, and not for the first time:



(Editors, "Papillon")


I also had this one stuck for awhile. It's just so damn happy:
