Earwormed – “Eddie’s Teddy” and “Planet, Schmanet, Janet”

The Earworm: Cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show – “Eddie’s Teddy” and “Planet, Schmanet, Janet”

(sorry about the quality. I wanted something with the calls, and without other people singing on top of Tim Curry)

How I Got Earwormed: I think this one was a deeply planted, subliminal earworm. It started back in January when I went to Ohayocon. While in the smoker’s alley, I was drinking with a guy who had cos’ed as Eddie, and I was one of the few who got it from the start. At that point, we made the obligatory “Hot Patootie” joke, and moved on. For the last couple of days, I’ve had the last chorus of “Eddie’s Teddy”, and the last verse of “Planet, Schmanet, Janet” (which I’ve learned is not on any of the soundtracks) stuck in my head. The odd thing is when I think of the part where the Criminologist breaks in just before Janet screams “No!”, I fill in with the call from the live show “For the first time in her life”
