Driving Me Crazy

You ever get a song in your head that you cannot shake? I'm not talking Oh Mickey or the theme from I Dream Of Jeannie. Sorry, now you have one of those songs in your head. My bad. I know, it sucks and you either hear that hand clapping Toni Basil cheer repeating in your head or, worse, you hear that chirpy, happy, keyboard beat from the old tv show. I do apologize but that's not what I'm talking about.

I'm talking about when you have a song in your head, that you like, and you cannot remember the name of the band or the song. I've got that going on now and it's driving me nuts. The lyric I can actually articulate is part of the chorus - something like "feeling like a brand new day" or something about a brand new day. There's violins and other string instruments as well. At first I thought it might be Annuals but, now, after listening to everything they have on napster, I'm at a loss.

The worst part? The song is on my Zen, which means I can find it by scrolling thru all 4,500 songs. The crappy part? Napster is screwy and when I list all songs on the player it only pulls up a few from A-E. Not exactly useful.

So, if anyone knows the song, building violins and strings, leading up to a dude singing something about brand new day, I'll be forever grateful, forever in your debt. Who knows, I might even find a way to repay you.

In the mean time, let me suggest you cut and paste the link to rid yourself of Oh Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey mickey.

Tom's Diner

while I'm at it, if anyone knows why I cannot post links, feel free to school me on that as well.

Here's the song I couldn't remember:

One Day Like This by Elbow

sorry. only thing that's coming to mind is van morrison. doubt that's who you're looking for.

how old is the song? was it a hit?

Not Van Morrison, not Sting.

Relatively new but that could mean one year to ten for all I know. I can hear the damned thing and, yet, cannot recall the name.

Driving me insane

you post links by going into the html code and typing: (there should be no spaces inbetween these letters and signs...but i have to do it this way)

< a href "" > < / a >

The actual website link goes inbetween the "" and the name of the link goes before the < /a >

Floogin McNoogin said...

this is not my thing.

just cut and paste.

Floogin McNoogin said...

I fucking did it. Thanks to someone I don't know.

Someone You Don't Know said...

please try that last thing i really works..i put an extra " in there by mistake, all sorted now. Apparently you don't even have to change the mode, just normal composing mode.
I really want to see your link working.
Because that will prove i'm not entirely useless.

Floogin McNoogin said...

should be working now. thanks for the aid and abet. you have many uses, one of which is helping me. So, again, thank you very much.

Elbow was the band, One Day Like This was the song.

I can now die a happy death.
