kitanzi: (earth is weird - by boogiejack)

An email I wrote to a friend just now brought back to mind - persistently - the hymns from the church choir that I haven't been part of since I was 17. Now that is an earworm with staying power. (Or, as the Ropers might call it, Brain Sludge. Though I don't expect my former choir director would have appreciated that description.)

Ooohh yes!! The ones from childhood are particularly strong. I have a few from elementary school days from the Jewish prayer service as well as just those learned in school both hebrew and english that are still with me either in whole or in part. And come to think of it probably pretty mangled if I tried to remember the correct words :).

I don't know how many I'd remember in full, but certainly chunks of a number of them. I suppose I could filk them, given that I remember the tunes better than the words. *grin*

Was it written by CatSittingStill, perhaps? Just sayin'.

If you feel OK about it (hymns can be tricky), filk it--"and punch in the presence of the passen-jares!"

At least they're "very catchy and singable". [g]

They are intended, after all, to be very singable. *grin* Often by large groups of people all at once crammed into pews who have not self selected for the slightest ability to sing.
