Wrongo Bongo

According to music top ten reviews website, Jack Costanza's album Mr Bongo is rated 365,332 of 454,843. I quite like a bit of bongo in its place. Its place, however, never was and never will be anywhere near the building in which I live. This is unfortunate, because one of my nbeighbours clearly has different ideas. Which would be ok if this neighbour happened to be "Mr Bongo himself - Jack Constanza". Alas, no.

According to me, my neighbour's live rendition of traditional and contemporary bongo ballads is 454,843 of 454,843. Given that the bongo only has two pitches available to this mystery player, it is a little difficult to tell what the songs are that he is playing. However, due to my very mild super power in musical abilities, I am able to tell that what might sound like "ti ti ta ta, ti ti ta ta" to the average listener is, in fact, "Lady in Red". Similarly, "ta ta ti ti ta ta ta" is actually a badly rendered version of "Oops, I Did It Again".

Oh no, what fresh hell is this? S/he has just launched into what - going on last night's antics - will be a complete run through of Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66's Beatles covers.

.....EDIT: Aaaaaigghh - the theme from Friends!!!

I dunno about you, but this is already giving me a headache this morning. Maybe it's the mention of "Oops, I Did It Again"... or the theme from Friends. Need.More.Coffee.

I'll put the kettle on love. Do you take milk and sugar? I've been up for a couple of hours and it has started again. I am filled with murderous rage.

Arrrgghhh... your post infiltrated my dreams! Weird dreams about advertising, Friends and somehow I was connected. Got anything stronger that coffee? :P
