GRANDADDY "STRAY DOG AND THE CHOCOLATE SHAKE"
AND a huge smile comes across my face everytime this Ohrwurm kicks in. It's got a really lovely melody, the kind of melody that makes me wanna dance like a gibbon, and also wonder why it's taken many centuries of music for someone to find such a simple and joyous hook. And it's got top lyrics about robots in the dark, limos, and magic hair to boot. Yay for Grandaddy, and yay for my new flat mate Steve who gave me his promo copy, (he's a journalist, y'know, and gets such booty in the letterbox all the time, the lucky bugger).
