Ever watch a movie and get a song stuck in your head? How about a book? Yes, just the mention of a song or artist and for days or weeks you are walking around humming out loud or singing the song in your head. It happens to me all the time, which is why I can say: John Waters is solely to blame for this song that keeps popping up in my head the last two weeks and "I like it fine":
Trust me, I am really not complaining. Connie Francis is totally underrated (by today's generation). And it appears she has an autobiography coming out soon. Her story (which you can find online) is quite a movie or book in itself.
However, the book that is responsible for the recent loop of Stupid Cupid is John Waters' recent publication Carsick. I know this book is not for everyone, but I loved it. I loved it so much I even Instagrammed it from one of my favorite local coffee shops. I am not going to discuss the book, because I am anti-spoilers. What I will say is, I received this awesome sticker as a merit-badge from a dear friend and fellow Waters fan. Now if that does not inspire you either pick up the book, watch one of his movies, or rock out to Connie Francis.... well then I do not know what will.
I dislike ending on a sad note, but its impossible not to mention Connie Francis and what most geeklings know her from. Her voice was the only one who could capture the tears and heartbreak of Futurama fans during the saddest scene ever. The one of course at the end of "Jurassic Bark." It is her song, "I Will Wait For You" (the English version of Je ne pourrai jamais vivre sans toi, a song from the French musical The Umbrellas of Cherbourg , 1964) that is featured along with Seymour (and it goes without saying, the video below is a spoiler for those who have not seen the show).
