I’m not sure what I’ve done in this life or a past one, but I’ve had George Harrison’s version of “Got My Mind Set on You” stuck in my head for two weeks now. I don’t even know where I heard it or why it won’t go away, but here I am begging the goddess of earworms to please release me from this hell.
I’ve recently learned, within the last 10 minutes, that this is a cover song. I discovered this because I was googling the lyrics because what does this song even mean? It’s just weird jibber jabber. It’s gonna take money and time and patience to win the love of? a girl? God? Fucking Sully who I am dogsitting for who keeps barking at every noise he hears outside and makes me want to kick his adorable raggedy ass.
You know what else I recently learned 10 minutes ago? That in this version of the video that dude trying to win the toy for the girl is Alexis Denisof who you might know as Wesley Wyndam-Pryce from Buffy and Angel.
You’re welcome for both the trivia and the annoying earworm. Here’s hoping Sully will shut up so I can sleep!
