Earworm: Hurdy Gurdy Man

I remember a time when the Butthole Surfers seemed like the greatest band in the world. I had never heard the original version of "Hurdy Gurdy Man" by Donovan before their cover was released. Hell, I was in the eighth grade when it came out. Leave me alone. It made its way onto many a mix tape.

I stopped caring about the Butthole Surfers when "Pepper" came out. It was just a Jim Carroll rehash, and seemed awfully boring once it started playing radio play.
