Are you like me? Do you hate it when a song gets stuck in your brain? Yesterday I heard a song by Herman's Hermits and now the first two lines of the song are playing over and over (and over and over) in my mind.
"She's a Must to Avoid, a complete impossibility..." over and over. There are a few things that are funny and odd about this. When I heard the song yesterday, I was excited. I like the song. I was able to sing along. It's just now I can't forget it.
My teen years began simultaneously with the British Invasion. I watched The Beatles on Ed Sullivan along with half the free world. I never felt animosity to other British bands just because I loved the Beatles.
I think I had several albums by Herman's Hermits. This song was one of my favorites along with "I'm Henry the Eighth" and "Silhouettes on the Shade." I really did like most of the rest. I wish I still had all my albums. They are probably lost in the basement of my parents old home. I hope the subsequent owners enjoyed them.
One other curiosity about this song is that I always had the lyrics wrong. I always thought he was singing "She's a must for a boy...." which changes the entire drift of the song! Imagine learning the correct version just when my family thinks I can't hear!
