That place must really be jumping at 7:45 AM.

Home of the immortal lyrics,
"Where the birds sing words,
And the flowers bloom."

I'm not in the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room at the moment. But my brain sang that song all night.

Ernie G, after being stuck on Small World, Dave probably ended up at on of the Tiki bars and drank himself into oblivion to clear his mind of the horror!

So, if Barry Manilow sang that song, would it be considered a weapon of mass destruction?

Ha. That is almost as bad to have stuck in your head. Rather have "Yo Ho, YoHo, A Pirate's life for me" stuck in my head. At least you can use that for talk like a pirate day.

Hey, I'd fly to the other side of the US (in MI) and ride the Pirates of the Carribean (sp?) ride ALL DAY if Capt. Jack Sparrow would make an appearance...code name Johnny

Pardon my naivete, but what is the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki room? Is it an attraction at Pisney Porld? And if so, do all of the attractions there get their own theme song?

Dave, I'll be in Orlando next Monday night thru Wednesday afternoon (training). Will you still be there?

MAKE IT STOP!!!!

So help me God, if ANY songs from the "Aladdin" soundtrack are posted on this blog I will run out of my office screaming.

I used to love this song as a small child. I can't believe my parents didn't put me up for adoption.

I, for one, would rather have the earwig It's a Small World After All, It's a Small, small, small, small world than the screeching Tiki Room all day any day.

Just sayin'

Dave - what you are doing for Sophie while your wife is off having the time of her life at Wimbledon -Go Roger! - is what we Jewish folk call a mitzvah which is a very good thing to do, and I applaud you!

Absolutely right, scat!
For Dave!

You see? Using the Christina Aguilera music on the prisoners was an act of mercy. We have much greater weapons at our disposal.

Dave,

Astute readers knew you were in the Tiki tiki tiki room becauuse all of our comments are in itikis. By the way, we are trying to dispatch a search team with dogs and divers from Texas to come to Orlando and find you. Apparently, the local authorities, the press, the FBI advisors, and your family are proving completely incontinent in their search for you. So we are gonna send in the pros. My personal theory is that you got shot on the Jungle Cruise. A sad end, to be sure.

ohmigawd,i'm having flashbacks. my father ALWAYS made us sit through the stupid tiki show. dave, say it isn't so, you're not forcing this on your daughter are you? she'll be scared for life. that goes for country bear jamborees too....

katiejane- I've not been to Orlando but I grew up in southern Cal. and went to 'Pisneyland' about every two years between 1959 and 1979. I recall that most of the rides had some kind of audio accompaniment -- either sound effects or a specific theme song. None of these were noxious earworms ...unless of course the ride broke down, and you were caught like a rat in a trap. Even the Matterhorn Bobsleds subjected riders to quick snippets of alpenhorns and yodeling on the way to the top of the mountain. The Jungle Cruise featured a monolog delivered by the boat driver; the Spinning Teacups had no soundtrack, unless you count screaming and barfing.

I used to love this song as a small child. I can't believe my parents didn't put me up for adoption.

You sure?

My wife is watching Michelle Wie change the face of golf.

When I got an iPod for Christmas two years ago, I obsessivly loaded every song from every CD in my house on to it. This included many Disney songs (many of which, I actually like.) Little did I realize that the Tiki Room song was among them. Until I had my iPod hooked up to speakers at work, set on shuffle, in a room with many young adults who (I like to believe) had, up until that moment, thought of me as a "cool older guy."
