Monday Earworm: OK Go

My daughter has been walking around singing this song for hours at a time for literally over a week. I love the song, but now I cannot get it out of my head. Please, enjoy it for me.

12 Days of Seasonal Earworms You Need Right Now (Day 12)

Well, my friends, we have arrived, finally, at the 12th day of holiday music. I hope you have enjoyed the series this year; there are already several excellent choices on the docket waiting for next year’s edition. Remember, too, you can click back through to see the playlists from the last several years right here:

I have Dean Martin’s smarmy version of this song on my iPod, but now that I’ve discovered this one, I have a feeling it’s going to be replaced. I really like this song: winter has always been “snuggle weather” as far as I’m concerned — and yes, I recognize my great good fortunate privilege to be able to say that, and I don’t take it for granted. Ella Fitzgerald’s gorgeous rendition makes me want to dance, dance, dance.

Have a wonderful holiday, whichever one you’re celebrating, if you are doing so, and if you aren’t, have a great week! I am celebrating myself, so expect me to be off the blog for a little while as I take a well-deserved vacation from All The Things. I’ll catch you toward the new year.

12 Days of Seasonal Earworms You Need Right Now (Day 11)

We are almost at the end of our 12 Days of Seasonal Earworms, and I was reminded of this song this year at my son’s holiday music concert at school. I hadn’t heard it in about a million years because Houston’s Pathetic Christmas Music Station doesn’t seem to have it in its rotation. There are many versions of it out there, including one by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, whose music I like a lot, but it doesn’t have the iconic gravel of Louie Armstrong and just isn’t as good, so here we go.
