Watched Buffy this morning before work. It was the one where Robin tries to kill Spike, and they keep playing that folk song that's his trigger.

If it doesn't exit my head soon, I'm going to go into vamp face.

You mean "Early one morning, just as the sun was rising, I heard a maiden singing in the valley below...."?

*flees Fern's vamp face*

"Oh, don't deceive me, oh, never leave me, how could you use a poor maiden so?"

/ducks

We had to sing that song in grade school music lessons, so it was kind of like my own trigger; as soon as we saw the episode where Spike (or the First? I forget) says "How could you use a poor maiden so" my brain was off to the races before anyone on the show even sang the damn thing. One reason I was so frustrated with Buffy for not being able to remember the song; it's been engraved on my brain since fourth grade.

Heh, that was a pretty cool episode. I love when Buffy just breaks it down for Wood.

You think that's bad? You know what's been in my head for a week?

"Old Navy's super skirtyyyy. Super skirt! Super skirt!"

*runs off the get drill*

I'll have you know that song was the bane of my existence for some time after that episode, but not for the reasons you state. It was disturbingly familiar. It bounced around my head for weeks until I finally had the much anticipated epiphany--it was the theme song (sans lyrics) to a Canadian children's show that was very popular in the 70's called "The Friendly Giant".

Now you've done it!

Early one morning...something, something singing? I've got the tune, but not all the words. Of course, the tune is bad enough.

This is what I get for trying to catch up on my FLIST?

Try singing Copa Cabana -- it usually takes over the brain. Then you have a totally different problem... but I'm not a miracle worker.

Cheers,

Gabby
