My brain is frozen

One of our local radio stations has an "eclectic lunch" every day. And every day has a different theme; on Tuesday, it was songs about the devil (06/06/06).

A few days ago, it was a theme inspired by the National Spelling Bee and all the songs had to do with spelling. The eclectic lunch started at noon, which is just when I had to go into my Linguistics class, so I have no idea what songs were played.

For the life of me I can't come up with an hours worth of music for this theme, can you?

So far, I've got:
  • Gloria
  • Respect
  • Saturday Night (Bay City Rollers)
  • Lola
  • I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am
  • Rocking in the USA

Any more? What am I missing?

Maybe they played the soundtrack from the (Tony-winning) "23rd Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee"?

I can only think of kid songs, like
B-O-O-T-S - but I love the ones you came up with (and your funny commenters too).

Would "I Put a Spell on You" count?

C-R-E-E-P, The Fall. I'm teaching my kids to spell that one.

What about acronyms?

Gwen Stefani, "Hollaback Girl"

There's that country & western song, "D-I-V-O-R-C-E".

And then there's...hmm...yeah, I see what you mean.

How about that old Tom Lehrer/ Electric Company classic, "Silent E"?

And "A, You're Adorable..."

Neither of those is exactly about spelling, per se, but I'd stretch a theme like that to include anything about letters or the alphabet.

I'm so glad I found this post again. I was driving somewhere yesterday and "American Woman" came on the radio... It spells out American at the it fits! I immediately thought "I need to figure out which blog I was reading to post about this!

I need a life.
