Happy humming to those who have a head for music! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 00:59:00

For those not old enough to have heard the song, or are not familiar with the song, the Great Pretender, the actual lyrics to the chorus are: Oh yes I'm the Great Pretender! Just laughing and gay like a clown! I seem to be what I'm not; you see ... I'm wearing my heart like a crown, Pretending that you're still around. - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 01:00:00

Thanks, silveryaspen...guess which song is replaying over and over in my head??? Neat approach anyway! - Nosila, 2008-03-03: 01:14:00

Me too, Nosalia. I'm a newbie: is there a verbotomy for this? "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." - stache, 2008-03-03: 10:27:00

stache, you should submit that as a definition (see below)...'cause it happens to everyone! - Nosila, 2008-03-03: 20:31:00

Sure, stache! Go ahead and submit it! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 22:30:00

Shoot! I posted the above before I read under comments on your verbot, stache, that it has been done before! Today I'm a day late, a dollar short, a fingerslipping, and in a mindripping muddle! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 23:02:00

Clever and creative! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:36:00

A verbotomy for "n.: A tune that becomes lodged in one's consciousness and repeated ad nauseum, until replaced by one equally or more irritating, or until the victim suffers a psychotic break." About six months ago, we verbotomized on above definition. I'm pretty certain that Purpleartichokes got the nod for "Tunestruck." I'm also stumbled upon "reperditty" and "abbamatically ". - OZZIEBOB, 2008-03-03: 18:53:00

Thanks, OB. Kind of an obvious candidate. - stache, 2008-03-03: 19:20:00

Shucks! I missed it. Could have been before I discovered this neat site! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-03: 22:45:00
