Katrina and the Waves Walking-on-Sunshine-watch

OK, I guess it makes sense to make this a regular feature, since that #$%^@ song is NEVER NEVER EVER GOING TO GO AWAY!!!!!!!!!!

(The ten exclamation points above are actually symbolic; the number ten represents completion. Or, as Boomhauer put it: "mcnncnmmdnmuttermumbledang ol' Closure, man.")

Our local radio station has been playing more B-sides and deep cuts, with a tagline: "Kxxx. Where you never know what you're going to hear next." They have actually done a very fine job of diversifying the playlist over the last year or two, so I don't want to ride them. But they played that ad, "Kxxx. Where you never know what you're going to hear next," just now, and launched into the Katrina and the Waves song. As if it's not the most overplayed and overmarketed and overhyped song ever, in the existence of carbon-based life.

That, and Hotel California, by the Eagles. Jesus.
