    This morning is one of those……..

    It’s raining. It’s pouring.
    The old man is snoring.
    He went to bed
    and he covered his head.
    And he didn’t wake up
    till the morning.

    ……….types of mornings here right now. And, when this happens on days of ‘you’d like to see’ games, Hot Butter’s “Popcorn” instrumental hit starts cueing up in my head – as it seemed to be a WPIX mid-’70′s staple for the musical backdrop to the rain delay wallpaper that they used to throw up on the screen (when scrambling to decide what else to put on).

    Anyone out there feel like humming along on this one with me today?

    Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop.
    Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop.
    Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop, Pop-Pop…….

    Man, that and when they used “Raindrops keep falling of my head” – it was just maddening, I say! (In a good Yankee zealot kind of way.)

      Aaauugggh. Thanks for the earworm Steve.

      When I was in college, one of the radio stations in Rochester was going through a format transition. So for at least a week or so they would play the same set of songs over and over again just to pass the time (no commercials, no DJ) . It seemed like every time I got in the car that damned Popcorn song would be on.
