Not all earworms are top hits. Some songs never catch fire with the general public, but nonetheless find just the right niche in your personal inner jukebox. Unlike the chart-toppers, it's hard to share the joy or despair of having a relatively obscure earworm with your friends and acquaintances.
I didn't lose it; I never got one in the first place. I took driver's ed in high school but it was a rather traumatic experience and I have basically never been behind the wheel of a car again.
Instead, I use public transportation to get around. This means I have spent a large chunk of my life so far standing at bus stops.
Really, it's just a two-minute-long sarcastic little ditty by an '80s acoustic punk band about how little fun it is to be stuck at a bus stop for a long time, and how the situation doesn't always improve much once the bus actually arrives. The song, written in when lead singer Gordon Gano was still in high school, was a standard part of the Femmes' live shows for decades, but was never an official album track outside of compilations.
But none of them hit my sweet spot the way the Violent Femmes did. I think the song has stuck with me for so long at least in part because of the convergence of two factors: A I am a lifelong non-driver and B like the Femmes themselves, I am originally from the upper Midwest. It's not uncommon to find adults from New York City and, occasionally, other coastal urban centers like Boston or San Francisco who never learned to drive a car because they never needed to. I never learned to ride a bike, either.
But if you need advice on the best walking shoes in town, give me a call. Along comes a song played by three guys from Milwaukee about the bus stop blues. Hooked for life? Apparently so. For me, the crucial loop which, in classic earworm fashion, actually consists of two halves of two different verses welded together by my imperfect memory is this:. Let's call the mayor, let's complain Seems like the city's done it to us again. Looks like somebody forgot about us Standing on the corner, waiting for a bus.
If only the mayor was likely to listen. Those who depend on public transportation often and rightly feel like they're an afterthought in this car-centric culture of ours, and bus riders doubly so. In these days of chronically underfunded infrastructure, our bus fleets are dirty, bumpy, and prone to breakdowns — and, yes, chronically late. Buses — the public kind, not the shiny wi-fi-enabled corporate harbingers of the apocalypse that crowd out municipal buses at their own stops — are for other people.
Unimportant people. At least, that's the stereotype. Not to mention comfortable; I'll take a cushy transbay bus over a sardine-packed BART car any day of the week. I have had my worst urban experiences on the bus, and my best.
I've been harassed for the way I look and, once, for the way I cover my cough. I've had a man tell me about the neighbor who died in his arms. Another man gifted my children a pair of immaculate basketball shoes. And once, a maniacally cheerful driver serenaded the rush hour crowd with a capella renditions of Queen songs and offered to drive us all the way down to L. Forget your troubles! And your timetables! For me, the crucial loop which, in classic earworm fashion, actually consists of two halves of two different verses welded together by my imperfect memory is this: Let's call the mayor, let's complain Seems like the city's done it to us again.
