My family has worked at the Ford plant here for 3 generations, so I'm screwed into buying Fords.

Thank you. Not only did you make me laugh, but you got "O Canada" out of my head. That's been earworming me all week and I have no idea why.

...hmm, what's worse to have stuck in your head? "O Canada" or "American Pie"? Tough call.
I once had "Crazy Horses" by the Osmonds stuck in my head for a good three days, only to be replaced by "Cotten Eye Joe" by Rednex for a further week. Suicide was seriously considered as a remedy.

I had the Weird Al Star Wars remix of "American Pie" in my head for the better part of a month. "American Pie" came on the radio at work one day, and I was singing out the Star Wars lyrics. People looked at me strange...

Cotton Eye Joe is a very "sticky" song.

For weeks after I first learned the lyrics to O Canada it was running through my head. I don't know about you, HopefulNebula, but in my case I just thought the lyrics were so cool compared to ours. Really...patriotic. Not about rockets and bombs and shit. Ours is more like a war anthem [Razz]

Which makes sense, as it was, y'know, written during a battle in a war & all.

It is, however, supremely outdated. I suggest a change to something more befitting the new postmodern America. Perhaps "For The Love Of Money" by The O'Jays, or Ray Stevens' "It's Me Again, Margaret".

I knew a girl in college that would beat you senseless if you ever started singing (humming, whatever) the theme song to "I Dream of Jeannie" around her. It was the one song she could *not* get out of her head!

Canada's independence didn't result from a revolution but from legislation passed in a Britain that no longer wanted to hold on to its empire. And the rockets and bombs mentioned in the song weren't America's but Britain's.

And if you like the Canadian National Anthem better than ours then why don't you just move to Canada!?! [Razz]

They sell aero bars in a small specialty store around here,( because we are so close to the border) but they are not mass retailed. I love to get those, and a Cadbury Crunch when I go to Canada. I think Mint aero bars are the best.
