Vicodin, anyone?
Up until recently, just the mention of the Beach Boys made me cringe with earworms of their screechiest hits, things like "Help Me Rhonda" and "I Get Around". Those were the Mike Love songs I grew up with in the eighties.

Now I've got that disc on heavy rotation in my car's CD changer. It's the musical Vicodin that's keeping me going this month.
