This is the "Boys Will Be Boys" of the music forum now.  I'll always feel defined by my last posts in those two.  Unfortunately, all I got running through my head right now is "Rock Me Amadeus".

I better not die before I come back...

"White and Nerdy"- Weird Al Yankovic

Parody of "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire
New lyrics by Al Yankovic

They see me mowin'
My front lawn
I know they're all thinking I'm so white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Can't you see I'm white and nerdy?
Look at me, I'm white and nerdy
I wanna roll with
The gangstas
But so far they all think I'm too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
I'm just too white and nerdy.
Really really white and nerdy.

First in my class here at MIT
Got skills, I'm a champion at D&D
MC Escher - that's my favorite MC
Keep your 40, I'll just have an Earl Grey tea
My rims never spin, to the contrary
You'll find that they're quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Steven Hawking's in my library
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
Got people beggin' for my top eight spaces
Yo, I know pi to a thousand places
Ain't got no grills but I still wear braces
I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
I'm a whiz at Minesweeper - I could play for days
Once you see my sweet moves you're gonna stay amazed
My fingers' movin' so fast I'll set the place ablaze
There's no killer app I haven't run
At Pascal, well I'm number one
Do vector calculus just for fun
I ain't got a gat but I got a soldering gun
Happy Days is my favorite theme song
I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
I'll ace any trivia quiz you bring on
I'm fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon

They see me roll on
My Segway
I know in my heart they think I'm white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Can't you see I'm white and nerdy
Look at me, I'm white and nerdy
I'd like to roll with
The gangstas
Although it's apparent I'm too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
I'm just too white and nerdy
How'd I get so white and nerdy

I've been browsin', inspectin'
X-Men comics, you know I collect 'em
The pens in my pocket, I must protect 'em
My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
Shopping online for deals on some writable media
I edit Wikipedia
I memorized Holy Grail really well
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
I got a business doing websites
When my friends need some code, who do they call?
I do HTML for 'em all
Even made a homepage for my dog
Yo, I got myself a fanny pack
They were havin' a sale down at The Gap
Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
Pop, pop, hope no one sees me
Gettin' freaky
I'm nerdy in the extreme
And whiter than sour cream
I was in AV Club and Glee Club and even the Chess Team
Only question I
Ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk
Or do I like Picard
Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Fair
Got my name on my underwear

They see me strollin'
They laughin'
And rollin' their eyes 'cause I'm so white and nerdy
Just because I'm white and nerdy
Just because I'm white and nerdy
All because I'm white and nerdy
Holy cow, I'm white and nerdy
I wanna bowl with
The gangstas
But, oh well, it's obvious I'm white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
Think I'm just too white and nerdy
I'm just too white and nerdy
Look at me, I'm white and nerdy

John Mietus:  "Got To Get You Into My Life" was a single release off the "Love Songs" collection Capitol released in '76 as a means by which they could keep the Beatles cash cow profitable.

Reason #256 to love John Mietus.  Encyclopaedic Beatles knowledge.  Thank you, sir.

You'd need a real air-supply after experiencing that!

"Cocomo" by the Beach Boys. It was on the radio when I got out of the car, and it won't go away!

"Uh! Uh! Unleash the Dragon! (I don't think I really wanna)...Unleash the Dragon!". 

Sisqo was no one-hit wonder!

Yes, I am understandably worried about the state of my mental health.

Dan, you're right. Sisqo was a two-hit wonder, at the very least!

As a small child, I remember thinking that "Got To Get You Into My Life" was a new Paul McCartney song. It was played on the radio alongside current hits of the day.

It seems Brian Wilson claims to have coined "good vibrations":
 QUOTE:
The initial inspiration came from an exchange he'd had with his mother as a child, about how dogs can sense if a person is going to be friendly to them even before they approach. "They feel vibrations," Audree told him, and the image struck him immediately. "It scared me, the word vibrations. To think that invisible feelings, invisible vibrations, existed scared me to death," Brian told Rolling Stone's David Felton in 1976. And yet the idea also appealed to him, particularly when he thought of lovers communicating on that same nonverbal plane. Musing on that notion one night, Brian had written some music he called "Good, Good, Good Vibrations" and played it for Tony Asher, who sketched out some preliminary lyrics: "It's weird how she comes in strong/ And I wonder what she's pickin' up from me/ I hope it's good, good, good, good vibrations."
See Peter A. Carlin, CATCH A WAVE, page 89.

Did you ever go for anything hippie, JB?
