I am SO glad that I'm an old fart who doesn't recognize hardly any of these songs.  So they aren't going around in my head.

As for Amazing Grace, it can be sung to a multitude of tunes, all the way from House of the Rising Sun to the theme from Gilligan's Island.  (Ha.  Now get that ditty out of your brain.)

But once a bad song gets stuck in my head (such as one I involuntarily hear on the radio or someone else playing), then it becomes torture.  :biggrin:

There's a remedy for having a song stuck in your head.  Try to sing the song (whatever it is) to the tune of Amazing Grace.  Don't know why, but the song will go away.

Yeah, didn’t get me with that one.

"I love you, you love me...."

After falling into the YouTube wormhole last night, "Take Hold of the Flame." Originally by Queensryche, but I saw the video with them and Dream Theater performing it.

Am I the only one who's a bigger fan of DT's covers than I am their original compositions? For heaven's sake, they've played the entire "Master of Puppets" and "Number of the Beast" albums live, and did a darn good job.

You can hear that on a beer commercial -- or at the start of a Metallica live concert recording.

Today's installment:


This was really interesting to me when it came out. When I was in high school band, we played a lot of Chicago tunes and we played a lot of Maynard Ferguson arrangements. MF played the trumpet solo on the studio version.

I first heard that song watching iNoToRiOuS (A Counter-Strike: Global Offensive YouTuber). The end of the song was used as an outro on a few of his videos.

Street Player is a recent favorite of mine, as I was awestruck by its arrangement.

I listened to “We are Siamese” from the original Lady and the Tramp after I found out the remake doesn’t have it.  The sadistic lines about eating the fish for some reason are sticking like an ear worm at the moment.

Today, it's a tune by John Fahey, written for Chessie system trains. This whole album has been stuck in my head in the past few days

Chessie System, more like Grumpy System.

Today, it's another cut off of John Fahey's Railroad album that's stuck in my head.....and a song I've played many times in a bluegrass setting
