What's Still In My Head

My multitude of readers will, I hope, forgive me for posting this song again, but the act of posting songs on my blog in an effort to get them out of my head has apparently failed me this time.

It's still there.

It won't go away.

I used to like this song. I don't anymore:

Twenty or thirty years from now, when I am lying on my death bed, some loved one might very possibly lean over me to hear the whispered last words issuing from betwixt my fevered lips. As my life ebbs away, he or she will likely be somewhat perplexed by the significance of these pearls of wisdom accompanying my last labored breath of life:

"The civilized world accepts as unforgivable sin,
Any talking out loud with any librarian
Such as Mar..."

And, if there remains any vestige of a long neglected insignificant blog somewhere on an antiquated internet, one might search and subsequently find, by referencing those enigmatic words, just what in the Sam Hill I meant.

And, like the word, "Rosebud", perhaps those words will spawn a book or film with the lasting cultural impact of a "Citizen Kane".

Or not.

When I was in high school I was convinced I was going to be theater tech. I started working lights and sound on any production that would let me. The Music Man was one of my favorite. I remember that song like it was yesterday.

Well, now you've got me humming it. Thanks a lot!

Oh, man....will it leave my brain before I go to sleep tonight? Probably not :-)

I love "My White Knight" from that many good songs...thanks for the reminder.

I gotta go the other way on this one. '76 Trombones' is the one that will stick in my head to my grave.

Marian the Librarian was a "B" side addition in The Music Man, but, hey, what am I, a critic?
