Attack of the Hawaiian Earworm

It's annoying to have a song stuck in your head, but it's that much more frustrating when you don't even know what the song is called.

For the last week I've been humming a tune I've heard a thousand times, but I never knew the name of it. It's this wacky Hawaiian thing, and I promise you've heard it a thousand times, too.

After some blind poking around I finally found it. Here's a snippet...

I was happy to have tracked it down, but what brought me the most joy was to learn that it's called "The Hawaiian War Chant".

I would imagine your average war chant isn't usually the happiest song ever, but what do I know? Maybe they're at war with feeling gloomy.

Whenever you hear this song from now on, I'd like you to picture natives comically slaughtering each other to it.

Better yet, picture me in the kitchen in my sweat pants loudly singing it while wiggling around, pretending to shoot blow darts and stab at invisible foes.

Now be glad you only have to picture it, instead of live with it, like my wife... who took a solemn vow in church to live with it F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

Hee hee!
