Fun fact: every single time I'm on my bike at an intersection waiting for the light to change and I see one of these:

As soon as the countdown reaches 5, this song starts playing in my head:

Specifically, the sample from this movie:




That song came out in 1992. I bicycle a lot, and there are a lot of crosswalks in this city. I figure that the crosswalks have earwormed me with this song somewhere in the neighborhood of 20,000 times by now.

It's not even one of my favorite songs. I mean, it's ok I guess.

    I think I only watched that movie to finally hear where the sample comes from.

    And now I have the song firmly ensconced in my head, too.

    I pray less firmly than it is in yours.

    I already have similar problems with other songs.

    I am now going to try to rinse that out of my head with a dose of loves lost via "Benson Arizona".

    Thank you for verifying a decades-old mystery for me. In reality, I should have figured this out a long time ago, as "Original Control (Version 3)" features additional dialogue from Dark Star that I recognized right away.

    That doesn't lead to Beastie Boys' "mmmm DROP!"?

    I think the sample should be loudly vocalized at crowded intersections.
