My favorite earworm at the moment

I’m not even sure whether to admit this or not, but I’m rather madly in love with this song at the moment…

(Wuthering Heights by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain:

    WOW. So I clicked on your cut tag, and my thought processes went something like this: “Hey, I didn’t even know there was a Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain!…Wuthering Heights, huh? I wonder what that sounds like? The only song I know by that name is the Kate Bush one, but surely that’s not the song they mean. *clink play button* *giggles at Ukelele Orchestra and at joke about modern jazz* Ohmigod. Oh. My. God. They do mean the Kate Bush song. Ohmigod. That’s so incredibly wrong that it’s just plain incredible!”

    I have been enormously entertained. Thank you for sharing! :D

      I hadn’t heard the original before this & I actually like the UOGB one better! Kate Bush is just a little too…wrought, I think, for me. :-)

      I think I could get to liking the UOGB one better, but I’ve known the Kate Bush version for (*gulp*) 20-odd years now, so the UOGB one sounds very definitely wrong (but not at all in a bad way) to my ears. :)

      “Wrought” is a good word for Kate’s version. *nods* yep, it is definitely wrought.

    Because the word “Crap” had already been taken!

    Ha, cool and just tongue in cheek enough to work!
