Worst/best song I get stuck in my head? “Fish Heads” by Barnes & Barnes! Every once in a while, it’ll pop into my head and stay there for too long. Amazingly, my wife had never heard it before. I played it for her, and since then, it creeps back for her. Sometimes,out of the blue, we’ll just know and sing it to each other! It really is super catchy.

If you’ve never seen the video for it, you’re in for a treat! Here’s some nightmares for you!

Fun facts! Apparently, before he started acting, Bill Paxton was a filmmaker. He directed and featured in the music video! Crazy, right? Also, the song is referenced in The Simpsons episode “Treehouse of Horror VII”. It’s a great gag!


Love or hate “Fish Heads”? Feel free to comment with the songs you get stuck in your head!

So, if you haven’t gone crazy with this yet, and need more “Fish Heads” in your life, here’s a link to buy the song and the DVD set with the Simpsons episode (season 8 is a classic)!

Basically, if you use my link to buy the album, I get a small cut!

  1. They used to play this all the time back during the first year or two of MTV in 1981 and 82. I remember that one of the MTV VJs mentioned that BARNES AND BARNES was actually BILLY MUMY from the show LOST IN SPACE and TWILIGHT ZONE episodes.
