IO: I'm being stalked by Steve Miller Bands "Jetairliner"

My alarm went off at 7am. Song playing on the radio was "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band.

Got in the car at 8:37am, and the song playing on the car radio was "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band.

Switched it off and plugged in my Ipod, set to random play, and the damn thing played "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band.

Had a meeting w/ my boss at 11am. The radio playing in his office was playing "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band.

Got a sandwich at 12:58pm, and as I left the deli, "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band began playing on the radio behind the counter.

Walked in the door home at 5:48pm, my girl was listening to Steve Miller Band's Greatest Hits, and "Jetairliner" came on.

Sat down to play with the computater and listen to some tunes at 11:59pm. My Itunes on random just played "Jetairliner" by Steve Miller Band.

Could have been worse. It could have been that abracadabra song.

~~whistles~~

I heat up, I can't cool down
You got me spinnin'
'Round and 'round
'Round and 'round and 'round it goes
Where it stops nobody knows
Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher
Abra abra cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra abra cadabra
Abracadabra
You make me hot, you make me sigh
You make me laugh, you make me cry
Keep me burnin' for your love
With the touch of a velvet glove
Abra abra cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra abra cadabra
Abracadabra
I feel the magic in your caress
I feel magic when I touch your dress
Silk and satin, leather and lace
Black panties with an angel's face
I see magic in your eyes
I hear the magic in your sighs
Just when I think I'm gonna get away
I hear those words that you always say
Abra abra cadabra
I want to reach out and grab ya
Abra abra cadabra
Abracadabra
Every time you call my name
I heat up like a burnin' flame
Burnin' flame full of desire
Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher
Yeah
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round
I heat up, I can't cool down
My situation goes 'round and 'round

It's your fault for having it in your iPod.


Thanks, now you've passed it on to the rest of us.

And my favourite Steve Miller song:

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak of the pompitous of love

People talk about me, baby
Say I'm doin' you wrong, doin' you wrong
Well, don't you worry baby
Don't worry
Cause I'm right here, right here, right here, right here at home

Cause I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run
Wooo Wooooo

You're the cutest thing
That I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Want to shake your tree
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
Ooo-eee baby, I'll sure show you a good time

Cause I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' on the run

I'm a picker
I'm a grinner
I'm a lover
And I'm a sinner
I play my music in the sun

I'm a joker
I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I sure don't want to hurt no one

Wooo Woooo

People keep talking about me baby
They say I'm doin' you wrong
Well don't you worry, don't worry, no don't worry mama
Cause I'm right here at home

You're the cutest thing I ever did see
Really love your peaches want to shake your tree
Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
Come on baby and I'll show you a good time

Yeah, besides the whole "his song is stalking me thing" Steve Miller is pretty cool. I'm a Midnight Toker!

I had to google it...came up with this

In Steve Miller's The Joker, what is "the pompatus of love"?

If you have ever listened to the radio, you have probably heard Steve Miller's "The Joker" at some point or another. If not, you have heard it sampled in numerous pop songs, most recently in Shaggy's "Angel". The song begins with it's unforgettable bass line and these lyrics:

"Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak of the pompatus of love"

The first lines are easy. "Space Cowboy" and "Gangster of Love" are old Steve Miller Band songs. Maurice is probably from his song "Enter Maurice". But what in the world does "pompatus" mean?

Look at the lyrics for "Enter Maurice". It contains the line "My dearest darling, come closer to Maurice so I can whisper sweet words of epismetology in your ear and speak to you of the pompitous of love.". Yet another reference to the mysterious P word (spelling varies). And so the mystery remained until "The Straight Dope" got on the case. They tracked down an old song called "The Letter" by a group called the Medallions. It contained a line very similar to the line from "Enter Maurice".

The answer was finally revealed when The Straight Dope tracked down the author of the original Medallions song, Vernon Green. He claims that the orignal word is "puppetutes". He came up with this word to describe his idea woman, a "paper-doll fantasy figure". I guess it's pretty obvious why Steve Miller didn't want to confess the true meaning. He probably had no idea what it meant.
