The ultimate cure is to sing "It's a Small World" loudly. That song will instantly replace any song you have going through your head.

I have Jack Johnson's "Upside Down" going through MY head at the moment because of this:

I don't, actually. I just copy and paste them. I wish I could remember who originally typed them; I want to say RMMC but I'm really not sure. I copied and pasted and made sure I always knew where to find one from then on, because what was described as how to type them (which involved the F14 key, I think) did not work for me. You can now always find them in "Exciting Adventures in Sitting". Or here, now. Or the Forsaken party thread, I think...

As you get older it begins to stop. It is replaced with, well I'm not sure what it gets replaced with because when you get as old as me you don't have enough brain anymore to remember.

Here's a Texas song from the Civil war.

Hurra hurra
For southern rights hurra
Three cheers for the bonnie blue banner
That bears the single star

Rhet Butler name his daughter Bonnie Blue after that song in "Gone With the Wind".

Now you have something new to ring in your head.

So Desktophippie you didn't like Civil War song.
It's sad and it's sweet and I new it complete many moons ago. In a John Wayne movie called "Horse Soldiers" his cavalry brigde is hiding in some woods as a Confederate cavalry unit marches by singing Bonnie Blue Banner. They did an excellent job. They sounded sad because they were so far from home.

I was taught this one by some former Girl Scouts.

Hehe I feel the same way. Sometimes if I'm not careful, I'll sing the Hero of Canton in the SHOWER just before or after singing the theme song. I had a steady run of doing this for a while. I have to be careful or my roomies will hear me thus creating a running joke.

But I guess you're safe if the song's just RUNNING in your head.

I don't know the song, so I can't get it stuck in my head. I've seen Gone with the Wind a couple of times, but I don't remember the song itself. I haven't seen all that many John Wayne movies either, so that doesn't help!

I think I know the dustpan one though. We used to learn it as a harmony to another song.

hello Desktophippie:

"Horse Soldiers" was not one of John Wayne's best. It just had that song in it. Actually I don't think you hear the song in "Gone With The Wind", but Brett does mention it when he names his daughter.

The best John Wayne I've ever seen is "The Searchers" with a young Natalie Wood in it, and "Red River" that included Montgomery Cliff.

You think I watch to many movies?

Life is not long enough to see them all.

I only remember him huggering her and mentioning the name. But I suspect Scarlet had the last word on that like she did on most everything else.

Thanks Patience, I will have to rent that movie again. It has been to long since I last saw it.

Hello Fizzix:

When I get any song constantly repeating in my head, it does tends to get tiresome. But as for Firefly song, I'd say you could do a lot worse. "Take My Love" is well written and the the orchestra does an excellent job with this piece. So if you're going to have a song in your head, than I feel you found a good one. Even Jayne's "Hero of Canton" is not bad. Joss and his team did not skip on the music for this show. I don't know how often you watch the series, but if you are getting worn down with this song then lay back for a while. Watch some other favorite program for a while. Firefly is not going anywhere. Put some of your favorite music on to listen to. That should help.

Even the best things in life can wear you down. So taking a break for a while will only make the show even more fresh when you return to it.

Reading has helped me when I'm trying to get away from something nagging in my head.
Shakespeare is good. "To be or not to be", can drive most anything out of your head.


Hoping this helps

I find that if you write your own version of any of the Firefly songs, you will end up with a spliced mish-mash WTF version of your very own. So noone will know what you mean.

Vassallo Interviews: John Wayne’s Granddaughter Anita Swift Shares Memories
http://hottytoddy.com/2015/07/31/vassallo-interviews-john-waynes-grand
daughter-anita-swift-shares-memories
/

I very much enjoyed reading this interview.

I don't consider myself a die-hard John Wayne fan in spite of all
his achievements, in spite of my love-hate thing with The Searchers.

If I saw The Quiet Man in 1952 on release, I would have been 9.
But I sort of remember it and want to see it again.


... oooOO}{OOooo ...

I've given up looking for the meaning of life. Now all I want is a cookie.
