Funny things, minds

Crossword tremeloes album coverclue yesterday was "1959 hit by The Drifters". I had a few crossing letters, and immediately thought of "Here Comes My Baby."

Which was The Tremeloes, in 1967. Ah, well.

The puzzle wanted "There Goes My Baby," of course, and I had that corner messed up for a bit. But I also had "Here Comes My Baby" stuck in my head all day. And today, too, for that matter.

So here - you can have it, too.

If you ever need to shake a song out of your head, try replacing it with what has to be the most grandiose lyric in all of songdom:

« I know that I must do what's right / As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti. »

That's bound to knock out any competing words, through the sheep mental processing required to fit those into a line of a song.

For an infectious tune, you can always try substituting "Oo... ee... oo-aa-aa / Ting, tang, walla-walla bing-bang."

You're welcome.
