Ways I Annoy The Shit Out Of My Girlfriend, Part 83...

Megan really likes Van Morrison. She had some of his music playing last night when I got home. I made the observation that Van mentions "Jelly Roll" in all of his songs.

"Not ALL of his songs," she said.

"Well, at least 50% of them he does."

"OK, maybe 50%."

For the remainder of his CD, I started replacing various lyrics with "Jelly Roll". She was not amused. I was. It went something like this:

Actually, jelly roll fits in place of Domino just perfect!

Either you are an evil genius to be lauded or she is a saint for putting up with you. I can't decide.

It should be noted that no true VanMo fan would be caught dead singing along to the ridiculously commercial "Brown Eyed Girl."

Brown-eyed Jelly Roll...that's right on par with the Cleveland Steamer & the Rusty Trombone!

What happens when you sing Jelly Roll, do that funny walk, and then fake cry - is that an annoy overload?!

I think you need to go on "Don't Forget the Lyrics" with the hilarious and talented Wayne Brady!

My favorite part was 0:40 - 0:43. Beautiful.

Again, you are a goofball, you Jelly Roll.

I never noticed that before - you have now brought a whole new level of interest to my love of Van Mo music.

I can understand really liking Van Morrison. Although I don't own of his records, I don't think, I have no problem with him.

I do, however, hate every bar band cover of "Brown-Eyed Girl." It really really pisses me off and I fly into a rage whenever I hear some shitty bar band covering it. I don't mind the song, I just hate that it's ALWAYS covered and usually done very badly.

What are Megan's thoughts on this?
