Groundhog Day (The Movie)

Bitter and I hadn’t much to do today.  I’m feeling lousy because of the cold I brought back from the camping trip.  We watched the movie Groundhog Day, starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.  It’s a great movie, until you realize that you can’t get that damned song Pennsylvania Polka out of your head.  Yes, yes, click the link!  Get it stuck in your head too, and sing along:

Strike up the music the band has begun
The Pennsylvania Polka
Pick out your partner and join in the fun
The Pennsylvania Polka
It started in Scranton. It’s now number one
It’s bound to entertain ya
Everybody has a mania to do the polka from Pennsylvania

While they’re dancing
Everybody’s cares are quickly gone
Sweet romancing
This goes on and on until the dawn.
They’re so carefree
Gay with laughter, happy as can be
They stop to have a beer
Then the crowd begins to cheer
They kiss and then they start to dance again.

Sing along now. You’ll hate me for weeks for this. But misery loves company.

    I watch that movie every couple of months. Reminds me that things just seem to be repeating themselves.

    Bastard, the song won’t go away now.

    What makes you think that I need to follow the link to get the song stuck in my head?

    Of course I have the alternate lyrics running in my head *grins* Do the Eagles have songs that go along with it like the Steelers?

    Good movie. I’ve never been to Punxsutawney’s Ground Hog Day festival, but I hear it is very similar to the movie.

    Thanks a lot. Now I’ve had the tune in my head all morning without even clicking on the link. Good movie, though.

  5. I start hearing the song when I hear or read the word “groundhog”. I think I’ve watched the movie too many times.
