Turn Around, Bright Eyes


This is making the rounds in certain blog circles, so I figured I'd pass it along: A cover of Total Eclipse of the Heart made by Hurra Torpedo, a Norwegian band that uses kitchen implements, and the destruction of same, as the percussion. I might be a bit late to the party on this, as they apparently were already a Big Internet Thing early last year. Still, if you missed it then, here it is in all its weird, Nordic glory.


Do you know what? Every fucking time I have checked your blog in the last three days I have seen this post and immediately gotten the song in my head. I don't, as it happens, like the song. Nor have I actually watched any significant portion of the video here mentioned; I started watching, remembered immediately how much I dislike the song, and wound up turning it off because there didn't seem to be any point in watching the video with no sound.

Still, every time I load this page, all it takes is a quick glance at the title of the entry and my brain steps in to play the rest of the song repeatedly until I can find something sufficiently arresting to drive it out. And then I check your blog again, and the whole cycle starts over.

Ahem. Will you please update your goddamned blog now?

Well, now you know how I feel; someone linked to that video over the weekend and I've had that damn song stuck in my head off-and-on all week. I'm worried about having the stupid earworm stuck in there forever.

And, as is well known, forever's gonna start tonight...
