dammit!

Four hours without power and Jeanne hasn't really done diddly around here. Oh, we've had some wind and rain, but nothing spectacular. I think I know what happened.

Georgia called me around 4:00 this afternoon to tell me that HER power was off. As we were talking, her power came back on. Mine went off at almost the exact, same moment. Georgia SUCKED ALL THE ELECTRICITY OUT OF RINCON and sent it to Bluffton, South Carolina, right through her cell phone. I was the dupe she used to do it, too.

She left me in the dark for four fucking hours. I got an ear-worm during that time. What band played "Time of the Season" back in the late 60's?

See what happens to me when I'm left alone in the dark? I start to talk to myself and my mind wanders off in strange directions. It's all Georgia's fault.

I can't think of any other logical explanation.

It's the time of the season
When the love runs high
In this time, give it to me easy
And let me try
With pleasured hands

To take you and the sun to
Promised lands
To show you every one
It's the time of the season for loving

What's your name?
(What's your name?)
Who's your daddy?
(Who's your daddy? He rich?)
Is he rich like me?

Has he taken
(Has he taken)
Any time
(Any time to show)
To show you what you need to live?
Tell it to me slowly
Tell you what?
I really want to know
It's the time of the season for loving

Thanks, Arky. Now we all have the earworm by proxy. Could be worse though:

"Seasons in the Sun", Terry Jacks

Goodbye to you, my trusted friend.
We've known each other since we're nine or ten.
Together we climbed hills or trees.
Learned of love and ABC's,
skinned our hearts and skinned our knees.
Goodbye my friend, it's hard to die,
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Pretty girls are everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the hills that we climbed
were just seasons out of time.
Goodbye, Papa, please pray for me,
I was the black sheep of the family.
You tried to teach me right from wrong.
Too much wine and too much song,
wonder how I get along.
Goodbye, Papa, it's hard to die
when all the birds are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
Little children everywhere.
When you see them I'll be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the wine and the song,
like the seasons, all have gone.
Goodbye, Michelle, my little one.
You gave me love and helped me find the sun.
And every time that I was down
you would always come around
and get my feet back on the ground.
Goodbye, Michelle, it's hard to die
when all the bird are singing in the sky,
Now that the spring is in the air.
With the flowers ev'rywhere.
I whish that we could both be there.
We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun.
But the stars we could reach
were just starfishs on the beach

Now THAT'S a damned earworm.

Power was out here too Rob. We shrugged it off and went to the beach. Nice weather!

We've had 48 hours of 40mph wind, and our power didn't even blink out here on Tybee. Go figure. Of course, if a typical afternoon thunderstorm comes up, you can count on a 5 hour outage.

That's too funny! When you mentioned the big Zombies hit (the others were She's Not There and, by Rod Argent on his own afterward so not technially the Zombies even though I have seen it on at least one "Zombies" anthology, Hold Your Head Up, a big favorite of mine) for some reason I thought of Seasons In The Sun. Then voila, someone had put it in the comments.

Widely considered a lousy song or not, Seasons In The Sun brings back fond memories of my formative years, age 12 or so, and I just loved it back then.

The instrumental parts of TIme of the Season sounds like porn music to me. I like it.

Not as porno as, say, BILLY DON'T BE A HERO! ha ha, but pretty porno nonetheless.
