Kinda Kinks

Last night I dreamed some people I was with were trying to sing a song by The Kinks, but they couldn't remember how it went. So I sang it for them.

"You Really Got Me," right? Or "Lola"? Maybe "Celluloid Heroes," then?

No. In another example of just how much fun — and odd dreams can be — the song was "David Watts":

Fa-fa-fa
fa-fa-
fa-fa-fa

Fa-fa-fa-
fa-fa-
fa-fa-fa

I am a dull and simple lad
Can not tell water from champagne
And I have never met the queen
And I wish I could have all that he has got
I wish I could be like david watts

Fa-fa-fa-
fa-fa-
fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-
fa-fa-
fa-fa-fa

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream I could fight like david watts
Lead the school team to victory
And take my exams and pass the lot


There's more to the song, but I'm still trying to figure up how it wound up in my head at 5 this morning.

Fa-fa-fa
fa-fa-
fa-fa-fa

I don't know the song, so I keep hearing Psycho Killer to the fa-fa-fa part.

Last night my brother slapped a toddler version of Tyler on the arm for chewing his toast too loudly.

What the...

If he weren't your brother, I'd recommend that you Taser him.

I'm sensing a theme to your last few replies. Have you a new toy you want to share with the group? Brother or not, I'd give it a try.

It kinda goes with the spirit of the userpic.

Speaking of the userpic, did I ever e-mail you that newspaper article about how Kubric's film version of "The Shining" is really about the genocide of the American Indian?

Nope, no such article.

That is a pretty random song to dream about.
I had Lola stuck in my head all day yesterday for some odd reason. hmm...

I wrote a paper for a Victorian novels course about how "Lola" could be the theme song if a movie ever were made of the novel "The Woman in White."

The professor went around the room and asked each of us what we'd written about. Everyone else had paper topics steeped in Academese -- and I was writing about The Kinks. The other students looked at me as if I were a heretic.
