Help!

I've had Simon & Garfunkel's song, "Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine" running through my head for two days!

Help. Me. (g)

Current Mood: crazycrazy

A clerk at my last job suggested that, when I had "Turning Japanese" from the movie Gung Ho warping my brain, I try humming "The Good Ship Lollipop." She claimed that the song was powerful enough to wipe out the evillest earworm.

Well, she was right. "Lollipop" wiped out "Japanese."

And then I went around with "The Good Ship Lollipop" eating a hole through my brain. Nyaarrrrgh . . .

Kris--LMAO! And is the person who suggested this still alive, or did you successfully bury the body?

Buy a big, bright, green Pleasure Machine.
You'd better hurry up and order one;
Our limited supply is very nearly gone...


I'm hearing the bloody thing pitch-perfect. Every single inflection of Paul Simon's voice from the record is right there, clear as a bell.

The price I pay for having good pitch discrimination. *sigh* This is part of why I love classical music--because it's harder to remember.

Oh, she's still alive. Partly because she left work three hours before I did, and partly because I knew that if I enlisted the attorneys to help me craft a defense, it would come out of my next performance review. ;)

I thought of you the other day; CNN had a special on a woman with synaesthesia. :) As for classical music, who's your favorite artist?

--Kris

My favorite composer was Beethoven--until I found out about Hildegard of Bingen. She's not exactly classical, more like early medieval, but she's now my favorite. I also love Chopin's music.

Which composers do you like?

I love synesthesia...would hate to ever lose it; I think my world would be a lot more dull if I lost it.

Chantal

As much as I love Gregorian chant and plainsong, I've yet to listen to Hildegard. Thankfully, Audiogalaxy has her albums. :D

My favorite classical composers would be Satie, Vivaldi, Shostakovich, Bach, Respighi and Butler.

--Kris

I like Respighi's airs for lute, Vivaldi's and Bach's music in general, also Gabrieli and Albinoni.
Butler and Satie are new to me.
