Bonus Multipurpose Earworm!

Now, I heard this song just yesterday.  Listening to the lyrics as it wormed its way in, I recalled that this is a song sung from the point of view of a guy who is basically a total loser whining about his lot in life and who thinks he deserves better than what he has.  And I thought, “I KNOW SOMEBODY JUST LIKE THAT!”

So I went looking for a good YouTube clip, and found this absolute GEM, packed full of Rule 5 Goodness!

So, it’s a Bonus Earworm!

It’s a Statement Earworm!

It’s a Rule 5 Earworm!

It’s your basic Multipurpose, Do It All Earworm!

    Is it any wonder I'm sane at all?"

    and ...

    "Is it any wonder I'm not a criminal?
    Is it any wonder I'm not in jail?"

    The more people are exposed to William, the more those questions are asked.

  2. Styx was always a guilty pleasure and now you have ruined it for me by associating this song with the Flailure. Thanks Obama!

    1. A guilty pleasure, indeed, AV. First concert I ever went to as a teenager was STYX.

      Fast forward a few decades, and there hubby and I are seeing them again. IIRC -- It was 2012. STYX teamed up with REO Speedwagon and The Nuge for "The Midwest Rock 'N Roll Express" Tour. Big, big fun!

      Yeah. I, too, could have happily lived the rest of my life without a STYX/Blob connection.


  3. But what I don't get about this earworm is the relationship between the music and the video.

    I grant you: Those women are pretty, and they can move, but what does it have to do with the song?

    1. Let me put it this way.

      A person who could conceivably conclude that this song was meant to describe him (to a T, I might add) would not ever be in a position to overthink the connection between the music and the video.

      You are not such a person.

      Stop overthinking.


      1. You are not such a person.

        HOW. DARE. YOU! I have never been so insulted in all of my life. You are implying that I ........

        Oh. Wait. Never mind.
