Earworm: Kind and Generous

Repetition is the name of the game in popular songwriting, but that's not always a good thing. Case in point: "Kind and Generous" by Natalie Merchant. I enjoyed 10,000 Maniacs back in their heyday, but her solo stuff makes me want to hear a cat receiving a bath on top of a chalk board instead. Ugh. Thank you, thank you. Thank you, thank you. Shoot me, shoot me. Thank you, thank you. Every time I hear it, it deceptively sucks me in only to come back with 12 minutes of the stupidest lyrics known to man. Na na na na na na na na. Na. Blech.
