Apparently, Eddie Rabbit holds a big place in my mind "Drivin' My Life Away"

"Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a better way for me
Ooh, I'm drivin' my life away, lookin' for a sunny day"

I have had "Food, Glorious Food" from Oliver! in my head since I saw it in an NYT archive crossword this morning.  Those are the only three words I know (though I can sort of hum along for a little while after), so it's quite a tight loop.

.....
Cold jelly and custard!
Three meals a day,
Hot (something) and mustard...

Hmm, hmm, humm hmm,
Hmm hmm hmm,
Da,da, da da dah!
In a minute!

(Now I have to go look THAT up!; I just played accompaniment on it so I didn't really learn all the words....just my cues...)


But I did know more of them at the time....thanks!

I'm just glad to be out of the house and away from the truly dreadful garage band my neighbor across the street is fielding for our town's Porchfest...think, a very bad takeoff on "I can't get no..satisfaction" at very loud volume, off key, and repeated ad infinitum to great, roaring cheers by all their high school friends...

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee ... in my elderly neighbor's quavering soprano.

Think I'll take her a few of the peaches from my farmer's market trip, then dig through my mother's albums for a baritone version.
Enthusiasm is not a skill set. (MH)

Well, you know a lot more words than I do! In retrospect, I (sadly) think that even though it was triggered by that clue, my earworm was more from a commercial that I don't think I am making up that sang "Cheese, Glorious Cheese" to that tune.   I'm not sure if there were any other words in the commercial rendition of the song, so maybe that's why those are the only words I know.  I'm sorry to say that it is rather more likely that I can recall a commercial or jingle than a piece of culture (although maybe cheese is cultured). 

I loved Psych and was trying to remember the theme song but instead got "Hey Ya!" from OutKast stuck in my head.

The radio was playing "Trashy Women" as I drove home so now it's stuck in my head.

I’ll be singing in the premiere of a new choral oratorio this weekend, and keep waking every day with random movements stuck in my head. This morning it’s the opening movement.

So I had some parts backwards and some parts incorrect.

Someone mentioned a squirrel on another thread so now I've got Ray Stevens The Mississippi Squirrel Revival.

I'm really hoping to get over to Ray Stevens The Streak, but my mind tends to have a will of its own.  "Don't look, Ethel!"
