Bad Rudolph Rising

All week, The Boss has been singing the first line of Bad Moon Rising. This annoys me a bit more than her usual medleys, mostly because on this occasion she's butchering a song that I really really like.

Today it stepped up a gear when she sang :

"Don't go out tonite -
- making spirits bright"

The tune was approximately correct for the first line and veered off key a bit for the second.

She then proceeded to sing this sporadically for the rest of the day but slowly the tune morphed until finally she was, actually, singing lines from Bad Moon Rising to the tune of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.



Have pity.

  5. Chimphead, yeah, but I'm not giving anyone her number.

    Manuel.. I know it sounds like fun but just imagine that this is all there is, forty hours a week for four years. My brain is like marmalade, do you see, it's like motherfucking marmalade at this stage.

  6. Well, if your brain is like marmalade at least you can put it on toast.
    Always a um, bonus? (I think that's come across as sicker than I meant it to but I'm letting it stand even so.)

  7. Whatever you do don't let TB know your brain is like marmalade, she'll try to eat your brains when she runs out of snickers bars. Better stock up on snickers that you can toss at her on a regular basis. Actually, they might help stop the music desecration as well.

  10. That damn woman doesnt even know the lyrics to the most simple of songs. How stupid can she be?

    "Making spirits bright" is Jingle Bells btw.

  12. Funny stuff. It just goes to show people operating at the lower levels of mental functionality can have full and productive lives.
    I think you've got to experiment on her... try humming other tunes see if you can get Bad Moon Rising to the tune of the loony tunes cartoons.

  13. I feel you are quite lucky. My brain the t'other day decided to repeat MGMT "Time to pretend" whilst mashing it with "Up the Junction" by Squeeze. This lasted for four hours. My only recourse was to buy cheap white cider and shut the fecking fecker up.

  14. Oh jeebus, poor you. My bosses just fire everybody who gets too competent to underpay and then talk revolting MBA bullocks about 'going forward' instead of spontaneously singing awesome Christmas carol/Creedence Clearwater Revival mash-ups and making awesome one-woman kung-fu montages.

    So obviously I'm falling all over myself with the pity I'm having. Not the sarcasm. No, that's definitely the pity.

  15. @ bugma302 - fuck. you're absolutely fucking right.

    @ ainm bréagach - I liked your idea so much I tried it. This might take a day or two, but I'm going for it; my chosen test subject is the A-Team theme tune. More news as it breaks.

    My name is Lu-KA.
    I live in LaCucharacha.
    On the sec-ond floor! I a-am a showwwwgirl.
    What day is today? I am not au fait.

    (musical interlude)

    (then it goes to that wee bit where the bass comes in and it goes like, de-neh-neh-neh-neh, DE-NEH, de-neh de-neh, de-neh-neh-neh-neh-NUH NUH, NUH NUUUUUUUH - hum through the tune, you'll catch up here)

  16. MLS - you should blog about it, no?

    ReplyDelete
  17. I should, but it wouldn't be this funny.

  18. @MLS- obviously the Koala was falling over himself with the empathy for you there. Definitely not the sarcasm. Oh no.
