Sturgis, I am sorry to hear that you hate this song so much, personally, I love it. I agree with you, it is a great song in that each different person can apply it to their own life...And it seems to work, maybe this is why I love it so much, it almost starts to make sense of the very confussing life which I lead...In a weird kind of way.
In relation to the drugs/smoking comments. I think that this song is far from related to drugs/smoking. I hate any kind of drugs, and I am almost not taking the prevention rubbish for my asthma because of my hate for them, I also hate smoking-yes even just the normal kind-so, given I love this song so much, I do not want to link the two together. *Shrugs*
And yeah, about getting the song out of your head...I have it on good authority(from me)that listening to the song, the whole way through, once only, without singing or humming along to it, works wonders...I have not tried listening to this Tina Turner song...but hey, it is worth a try.
Thanks for your ideas so far, keep them coming...I still have not found one I really like yet...
