Help! Quick!

Thanks to my sons New Found Love for All Things 80’s Music, I cannot get the Culture Club tune “Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon You come and go You come and go” out of my head.

Quick, someone please leave a comment with a NEW song for me to sing!

If you liked my post, feel free to subscribe to my rss feeds

  • OK – Then switch to another much loved 80’s band – Tears for Fears and “Shout”

  • OOOhhhh…in keeping with the 80s theme and equally “addictive” how ’bout:

    The Bangles….”Walk Like an Egyptian”

    Hey, have you gotten ANY of my emails? BTW, i;m totally hearing “Shout” in my head now….this might be like a chain letter you’ve created, Mel.

  • or

    “I wear my sunglasses at night”

  • The itsy bitsy spider climed up the water spout.
    Down came the rain and washed the spider out!
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain,
    and the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again!

    ***
    I got tired of waiting,
    Wondering if you were ever comin’ around.
    My faith in you was fading
    When I met you on the outskirts of town.

    And I said,
    “Romeo save me – I’ve been feeling so alone.
    I keep waiting for you but you never come.
    Is this in my head? I don’t know what to think-”

    He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said,
    “Marry me, Juliet. you’ll never have to be alone.
    I love you and that’s all I really know.
    I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress;
    It’s a love story – baby just say ‘Yes.’
    (Taylor Swift – Love Story)

  • The one from Rent. The one with all the numbers in it. (I could look it up for you, but then it will be stuck in MY head all day!)

  • Go play some old skool madonna. That’ll get it out

  • Sunshine on my shoulders, makes me happy. Sunshine almost over makes me sad………….

  • WAKE ME UP, BEFORE YOU GO GO…

    Oh, that is so ’80 and I love it 🙂

  • WZRD9832

    Roxxanne , message in abottle , everybreath you take . The police are notorious for repeating lyrics over and over again. And if all else fails Duran duran hungry like a wolf should help. How easy was it to become a rockstar in the 80,s one verse over and over peace E P.S. hope that helps with your S.O.S. ha ha

  • Don’t Worry.

    Be Happy.

  • 867-5309 by Tommy Tutone

  • How’s about the Ooompa Loompa song. Thanks to my cousin, I’ve had that one in my head for days.

  • Burn Baby Burn…Disco Inferno…Burn Baby Burn….

  • I can’t get the Scatman song out of my head since yesterday.

  • I want you, to want me!

    didn’t I didn’t I didn’t I see you cryin’……

  • Rock lobster, take on me, come on eileen, sweet dreams, our house, love shack, safety dance, tainted love, I melt with you, valley girl, everybody have fun tonight, you spin me round, cosmic thing, mr roboto. I can go on if you’d like.

  • Meleah

  • Jay

    Hahaha! I see you have some great suggestions. I have my iTunes on shuffle at the moment, and it’s playing Raindrops are Falling on my Head. How about that?

  • Dan the Fireman

    How bout some Berlin “metro”, Talk Talk “talk Talk”, Romeo Void, Siouxsie and the Banshee’s, The Cult etc etc. Im an 80’s freak I can keep going.

  • I once had the Smurf theme song stuck in my head for a year (thanks to my niece when she was much younger) so I’m not sure I’d be a good one to suggest anything. And please, nobody start humming that tune!

  • Lee

    How about the Beau Brummels and Last Laugh…that song has been running through my head since hearing it earlier today. Uh oh…that was probably before your time, wasn’t it? I’ll bet you don’t even know who the Monkees are.

  • This is the song that doesn’t end. It just goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was. And they’ll continue singing it forever just because…This is the song that doesn’t end. It just goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was.

    Better now?

  • LOL! That song! It’s invasive to the brain! But I am glad you sorted out the lyrics for me in twitter.

    I didn’t read all the comments but did someone suggest Roxanne by the Police?

    Roxanne. You don’t have to put on da red light.

    Roxanne.

    LOL … do it in falsetto with a Jamaican accent. That’ll knock Culture Club right outta da brain, man.

  • How about FUNKYTOWN ????

    😉

    Covers all moods!

  • Darn it, now you’ve got me singing that song! LOL!

  • Oh your poor thing! That’s terrible!

    Okay, how about this:

    Give me time to realize my crime,
    Let me love and steal.
    I have danced inside your eyes,
    How can I be real?

    Do you really want to hurt me?
    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Precious kisses words that burn me,
    Lovers never ask you why.
    In my heart the fires burning,
    Choose my colors find the star.
    Precious people always tell me,
    That’s a step too far.

    Do you really want to hurt me?
    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Words are a few I have spoken,
    I could waste a thousand years.
    Wrapped in sorrow words are token,
    Come inside and catch my tears.
    You’ve been talking but believe me,
    If it’s true you do not know.
    This boy loves without a reason,
    I’m prepared to let you know.

    Do you really want to hurt me?
    Do you really want to make me cry?

    If it’s love you want from me,
    Then take it away.
    Everything is not what you see,
    It’s over again.

    Do you really?

    Uh oh! Was that bad of me? Bwah ha ha ha! At least you have that other awful Culture Club song out of your head!!!

  • Meleah

    Ya’ll are KILLING ME.

    These comments make me want to run out and buy new Leg Warmers.

  • I have given you an award here:

    http://www.vtroom.com/2009/01/14/100-things-about-me-part-9-of-10-honestly/

    Please do not feel pressured to do anything with it other than acknowledge that I think you deserve it. If you can do the meme part, great – if not, no big deal. 🙂

  • Here you go.

    A little obscure for those of you without mullets, but I think it fits.

  • Meleah

    Now that I had to out shopping to buy Leg Warmers and Fingerless Gloves after reading all of these great comments:

    FINALLY.

    I have a new song in my head.

  • You could always opt for instrumental nostalgia and avoid lyrics altogether or, make them up as you go along. Your mood could create memories.

  • The best is “There was a he-goat by the grandy”

  • This one’s kind of hard for me to relate to. I was a miserable you-know-what in the 80’s, so it’s not the prime decade for me to recall.

  • “I believe in miracles”
    “Where ya from…you sexy thing?”

    Everytime I hear that song, I can NOT get it out of my head. Come to think of it, what the hell kind of radio stations am I listening to these days?

  • Meleah

    Richard W:
    Truth be told, the 80’s did NOT work out too well for me either.

    Steph:
    Now that IS a song I can/ WANT to have in my head!!!
