More songs stuck in my head

A very quick post to vent some frustration...

Every now and again I get addicted to watching certain TV programs. At the moment it is "The Dog Whisperer" - not just because I have a strange attraction to Cesar Millan's energy but because I love dogs and I love watching the way he quickly transforms them from untamable nightmare to chilled out canine.

And following "The Dog Whisperer" is "The Lion Man" at which point I pick up my laptop and get on with whatever I am doing, whilst intermittently watching a grown man cuddle huge cats as though they are domestic moggies.

And I have the theme tune stuck in my head.
When washing my face last night: "He's a Liiii-on man, doin' what he can..."
When setting my alarm clock: "He's a Liiii-on man, doin' what he can..."
And when in the shower this morning: "He's a Liiii-on man, doin' what he can, to provide a sanctuary da de da da da da da... He's a Liiii-on man, doin' what he can, to provide a sanctuary da de da da da da da... He's a Liiii-on... aaaaaaarrrrrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!!!"

The solution was to replace it with another tune, which no doubt will be driving me nuts in about half an hour's time.
I made myself a cup of tea, and it was back to "Right, said Fred" (was he is trouble, half a ton of rubble landed on the TOP O-O-OF HIS DOME!!! So Charley and me had another cup of tea, and then we.. went 'ome!)

What is the world coming to, when an improvement on songs stuck in my head turns out to be Bernard Cribbins?


  1. Songs I can't get out of my head...when I was one I banged a drum the day I went to see. I jumped aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me, we're going this way, that way, forwards, backwards, over the Irish sea. A bottle of rum to cure my tum and that's the life for me.

    All courtesy of CU. It's his pirates assembly tomorrow. A-haarrgh me 'earties. xx

  2. Suddenly I feel like I got off lightly after reading your post...
    Although today it is "My Sharona" (Myeee Myeeee Myeee Myeee My Woooooooo!!) after seeing the Oatibix advert one too many times yesterday.
