Damn You Axl Rose!

I have had G'n'R's "Patience" stuck in my head for way too damn long. When did it come out? '89? Maybe since then. It all starts out with that whistling hook, and then worms its way into my brain like a termite and takes hold. Based on this absolutely scientific evidence, I submit that it's got to be one of the catchiest or most addictive songs of all-time.

This would rank up there with Deep Purple's "Smoke On The Water", Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner", and others which I'm not thinking of at the moment that may or may not be as bad as those three. Musical viruses that work their way into your system and never really leave. You can drown them out with other music, other catchy tunes, etc, but you're only treating the symptoms - the cause is still there, waiting, and it won't be long before you find yourself mindlessly whistling that hook YET AGAIN...

In other news - Shadowbox Insanity Week pt. 49 commences tonight: Sex At The Box '06 tonight, 2Co's Final Show Saturday night, and Tommy at the matinee Sunday afternoon. There will be much good times (and most likely a fair helping of melancholy) to be had! Viva Shadowbox!
