For the last few weeks, I’ve had a song from my childhood stuck in my brain. I’ve done everything else I can think of to get rid of it, and nothing’s worked. So I’m stuck trying one last desperate move — to hope that it’s contagious, and if I simply give it to someone else, I’ll be free.

Apparently, Hootie and the Blowfish covered this song, too. I’ll stick with the David Gates original, thank you very much.
