For the last few weeks, I've had a song from my childhood stuck in my brain. I've done everything else I can think of to get rid of it, and nothing's worked. So I'm stuck trying one last desperate move -- to hope that it's contagious, and if I simply give it to someone else, I'll be free.

Apparently, Hootie and the Blowfish covered this song, too. I'll stick with the David Gates original, thank you very much.

May I remind you of another another song? (You're welcome)

Uh... This is the first, and hopefully last, time I've heard this song. There's nothing even catchy about it to get stuck in your head! I think you need to cut back on the allergy pills Jay.

I've got that song on my iPod--great memories of listening to it in the car while my mother drove around.

It may be a repressed memory coming out ("Help! Help! I'm being repressed!"), in which case there's nothing I can suggest. However, if it's merely a case of "stuck on replay", might I recommend listening to loud and frequent applications of "Stupid Girl" by Garbage? Works for me.

The worst songs are both evil and catchy. This one is not even close to catchy. Evil I will grant, but not nearly as evil as "Seasons in the Sun", "Honey", "Billy Don't be a Hero", etc.

As your (and everyone else's) punishment for such a lame post:

Why the f*** did I press play.

This was my second dumb move on Wizbang this week. The first was commenting on one of Mr. Ward's articles.

I have no complaint about the song but could the lip-synching be any more evident?
I suppose it was the standard of the times.

This is a sure sign that you are ready for a vacation. I cut the video off when I heard the first whiney note sung. ww

They made a movie with that song in it! Yuck, spit!!

Jay, not to distract from the beautiful music, but I have been searching online and in print and I still can't find any references to back up your assertion on that the desire to take other countries territory led to the Spanish American War (see comments on your post here)

Thanks J... Now I have to go look for that beat up Best of Bread cassette I have laying around somewhere? Very good song by a talented songwriter.

Suddenly I feel nauseous and have pictures of bell bottoms with platform shoes running through my head WTF..

Happy 4th WIZBANG...
