Oh man, I hate that song.  That was popular when I was in middle school and our gym teacher apparently loved it because during our square dance unit she'd have us dance to that song over and over. 

I do however love the Weird Al Version. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJWWKj_wptY

 :D

You can torture me
With Donnie & Marie
You can play some Barry Manilow
Or you can play some schlock
Like New Kids On The Block
Or any Village People song you know
Or play Vanilla Ice
Hey, you can play him twice
And you can play the Bee Gees any day
But Mr. DJ, please
I'm beggin' on my knees
I just can't take no more of Billy Ray

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
The most annoying song I know
And if you play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I might blow up my radio, ooo...

You can clear the room
By playing Debbie Boone
Or crank your Abba records until dawn
Oh, I can even hear
Slim Whitman or Zamfir
Don't mind a Yoko Ono marathon
Or play some Tiffany
On 8-track or CD
Or scrape your fingernails across the board
Or tie me to a chair
And kick me down the stairs
Just please don't play that stupid song no more

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
You know I hate that song a bunch
And if you play that song
That nauseating song
It might just make me lose my lunch, ooo...

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I think it's driving me insane
Oh, please don't play that song
That irritating song
I'd rather have a pitchfork in my brain...

Don't play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
The most annoying song I know
And if you play that song
That "Achy Breaky" song
I might blow up my radio, ooo-woo...

LOL!! Yep!  Love Weird Al. :)

I confess when I heard about Miley Cyrus and that yes, she is related to that man, my first thought was "Please, please don't make her sing that song just because she's related to him!"  If she ever did, I'd like to remain blissfully ignorant of that fact.

Always referred to her as Achy Breaky Spawn.  Nope, not ever a Hannah Montana fan.

"After about 6 weeks of non stop tormenting me with which ever one came out first, let's say Achy Breaky Heart, I grabbed it out of the tape deck, pulled a little of the tape out and threw it out the window."

The difference between you and the person in the story this relates to (and the part that rescues you from SS-itude) is that you'd been forced to listen to it for weeks, presumably after you'd said you didn't like it.  She, on the other hand, did this on one of their first dates, and after a cursory sampling.  That's what makes these stories so different.

The second tossing is even farther from SS because he knew what happened the first time, so he was obviously picking on you because he liked you and fully expected you to defenestrate the irritant.  ;D

Nope, but I'm probably the only one who really likes Billy Ray Cyrus. ;D

Me too... it always thrills me to death that there's a word that specifically means to eject someone via window.  Language is awesome.

I love it as well. It does NOT seem like it would mean what it means. It sounds more like a medical term, i.e., "I went to the ER last night with back pain and was diagnosed with a defenestrated kidney." or "The cause of death was defenestration of the spinal cord."

Well, to be fair that probably would kill you...

Then she decides that the asthma medication is making her heart race, so she takes her dad's heart medication (despite she herself not having a heart condition).

To be fair, it probably was. They gave me ventolin which is asthma medication to slow my labour and I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest. Its a very unpleasant sensation. It started immediately and wore off in a couple of hours so I am picturing her popping handfuls of pills to treat side effects. Like Kirk in the new Trek movie.

I got really excited that I didn't have to look it up since, to me, it's fairly obscure.

An extinct forum I used to like going to had a member that PM'd me that he'd like to 'defenestrate' me. So I copied-n-pasted to dictionary.com and realized it wasn't something kind or helpful! ::)

One of my favourite TV facts is that every episode of Due South contained an incident of defenestration.

So every installation had an allocation of demonstration of the application of defenestration?  For education, or did it depend on the situation?
