I’m ANGRY! Angry because
- Some idiot decided to revive one of the most awful songs of the ’70s, “Rock Me Gently,” for a car commercial.
- Not only do I still remember every awful word and chord change of this piece of tripe in the space in my brain that should be reserved for remembering my mother’s birthday, but I even still remember who sang it, a one-hit wonder named Andy Kim. (Note: If you’re going to have two first names, make them both decidedly butch.)
- This song became so stuck in my head during today’s otherwise wonderful bike ride to North Chatham that only a determined double-shot wall of sound from The Crystals, “He’s a Rebel” and “Da Doo Ron Ron,” could possibly keep it out.
- Until something even worse got lodged in there — probably inexplicable if you’re not a Howard Stern listener: The Bleeding Deacons’ version of I’m A Gay Papa. If you click the link, I’m not responsible.
