I love that song :P
Is Scott a lefty? Looks like it here in panel 3, but the input device arrangement isn't the same at work (see next strip).
thanks for turning yet another 80s song into some perv-fest forever in my mind! (think Hey Mickey, Turning Japanese, Dancing With Myself...)
I will add this to favorites.
Must say "Bell Bottom Blues" is what first came to mind from the lyric snippet.
thats why when searching for a song you always type lyrics in front of it. :)
Or add in the artist name if you can recall it...
The third panel made me laugh out loud. For real, not just LOLing. :D
Consistently and incredibly funny comic you've got here! Just found out about it a couple of weeks ago and every time I need a little pick up I just check out the next one in archives. My stomache muscles have never been stronger!
This one reminded me of trying to find out who sang "I love you more than I can sing"... it was "say"... not sing... very frustrating when Google won't help you out with that! Keep up the great work!
I had to go download that song. I love Air Supply, no, not gay. :-)
I usually just ask my friend. I swear, she's psychic or something. I say, I've got this song stuck in my head. Its fast/slow, pop/jazz/whatever, new/old, and I don't remember the lyrics or the tune. Just the beat. Taptapp tap tap tappp....and she always gets it. @o@ weird.
I had this problem with a song by Visage that I never heard of before. It was thanks to me putting the song up on youtube that I got the name of it.
I guess Scott has a left handed computer.
I have this same problem for the song Jenny (8675309), where I will remember the beat, and that will get stuck in my head, but I can never remember the title of the song or the numbers...
Air Supply? I thought it was Do You Really Want to Hurt Me by Culture Club/Boy George?
people going to google in 3... 2... 1...
"Wow, not what I had in mind."..."Add to favorites" Effing brilliant. This strip is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time (at least since I first discovered Odd Todd or Get Your War On...which is not to say those are better...its just that same feeling of stumbling across hidden humor Internets treasure.. ) Anyway, great work Meyers!
FlyingSolo, I'm with you there. Culture Club was my first thought. x') Even though I know that's not really part of the lyrics. "Do you really want to hurt me" and "do you really want to make me cry" are the only lines in that song beginning with "do you really want to", but maybe he misheard or remembered it wrong or something. Yes, I have been so obsessed with Culture Club that I still remember most of the lyrics I memorized. o.o
I love the double meaning of "lucky" in the third panel
My boyfriend always texts me the lyrics when this happens to him. Kids, this is what smart phones are for. :P
