The Song That’s So VERY Stuck In My Head: “ROCKY RACCOON” by THE BEATLES (1968)

Rocky Raccoon…

…Checked Into His Room…

…Only To Find Gideon’s Bible…

…Rocky Had Come…

…Equipped With A Gun…

…To Shoot Off The Legs Of His Rival…

*** *** ***

…His Rival It Seems…

…Had Broken His Dreams…

…By Stealing The Girl Of His Fancy…

…Her Name Was Magill…

…And She Called Herself Lil…

…But Everyone Knew Her As Nancy…

…Now She And Her Man…

…Who Called Himself Dan…

…Were In The Next Room At The Hoe-Down…

…Rocky Burst In…

…And Grinning A Grin…

…He Said Danny-Boy This Is A Show-Down…

*** *** ***

…But Daniel Was Hot…

…He Drew First And Shot…

…And Rocky Collapsed In The Corner…

…Ahhh, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da, Da…

"ROCKY RACCOON" Is Off Of THE BEATLES' 1968 Album "THE BEATLES" (aka "THE WHITE ALBUM") !!!

*** *** ***

This Should Teach Everyone A Lesson From The Annals Of Music History.

Namely, Don’t Go To Bed Listening To A Song You Sincerely DO NOT Want Stuck In Your Head.

Why?

Because Chances Are It’s Going To Get Stuck, Whether You Want It To Or Not.

Now, Don’t Get Me Wrong, My Peeps.

I LOVE…

THE BEATLES

…Especially…

THE WHITE ALBUM

…But Good God WHY Oh WHY Did This Song…

ROCKY RACCOON

…Have To Be The Tune That Stuck With Me???

I’ve Been Humming It To Myself All Morning Long!

It’s An Odd…

…Quirky…

…Oddly-Quirky’ish Song…

…And One Of My Guilty Pleasure Favorites…

…But Dammit Man, It Can Have The Oddly-Quirky’ish Ability To Get Lodged Within Your Brain…

…And I’ll Be Damned If I Know How To Get It Dislodged.

Sheesh.

I Was Hoping That By Blogging About It I’d Be Able To Calm My Mind, And End The Little Torment I’ve Caused Myself, This Morning.

So Far?

Nope.

It’s Still In There.

It’s Locked Into A State Of Perpetual-Repeat…

…And I’ll Be Damned If It Isn’t Getting Bloody Annoying.

Has This Ever Happened To You, My Peeps?

I’m Sure It MUST Have Happened At One Point Or Another.

Right?!

RIGHT!!

I Know Many Songs I Sincerely Wished I Could Forget About…

…Yet They Just Roll ‘Round-&-‘Round In The Ole Noggin…

…Never Choosing To Vacate An Already Exhausted Mind.

Again I Say…

SHEESH!

Lucky For Me, I Do Love This Song.

I Do Love This Album.

I Do Love This Band.

So…

…In Retrospect…

…It Could Always Be Worse.

Of That, I’m Very Sure.

I Could Have Ended Up With…

REVOLUTION 9

…Stuck In There.

That Might Have Killed Me Had It Happened!

πŸ˜‰

Hope Y’all Have A Decent Hump-Day, My Peeps.

Do What You Can To Make The Best Of It.

The Work Week Is Halfway Over!

SO…

…Hunker Down…

…Get Ya Some Decent Tunage To Carry You Through The Day…

…And Try Try TRY To Survive Yet Another Day In The Ole Salt-Mines.

If You Need Me…

…I’ll Be Right Here.

I’ll Be Doing What I Can To Help Y’all Through The Day.

I Make No Promises Of Success…

…But I WILL Be Trying Trying TRYING!!!

Can One Really Ask More Of Another??

Nope.

Not. At. All.

This Morning…

…I Felt The Need To Get-Out-There And Do Myself Right With A Nice Walk-About-Town.
