I'll give you one guess about what goddamned song has been running through my head for the last 10 minutes...

I just came into this thread to say if you get this song stuck in my head I will end you.


You know...virtually...however that works. :huh:

And you know what?  That would be vengeance completely deserved.  I'm just now plotting the demise of the f***ing  "Moon Loungers."




Note to any law enforcement who might be reading this:  It's just a joke.  But seriously, have you watched that video?
Um...I had no idea what you were talking about...so I looked it up.

Thanks for nothing...now I have to track you down and kill you.

You'll have to get in line.

Actually . . . what's your preferred method?  I could move you up.
:P

Why bother if someone is going to do it for me?

I mean, revenge is revenge, and if the outcome is the same then why get my hands dirty? :huh:

Revenge by proxy?  That is so bogus.

Also a cool band name.

A new interview with Bernie Taupin from Rolling Stone magazine here. The following comment stands out:

Not all of the songs were written for Elton John. Taupin also dug out the manuscripts for Heart’s “These Dreams” and Starship’s “We Built This City.” The latter has been named as one of the worst songs of all time. “It’s been a good little money-earner,” says Taupin. “So I’m not going to knock it. The original demo was a very dark song about how the clubs in L.A. were closing and this was my statement about it. Peter Wolf took it into the study and made it into this pop anthem. Hey, good luck to him. That was great. Thank you very much.”

Hahahaha!  Funny poll.  I hate this song, yet it's melodic and catchy.

Yup

Pure cheese.
