I'm The Guy Who Reads The Newspaper Over Your Shoulder.

Whenever anyone says the word cheeseburger, with the emphasis on the first syllable to differentiate it from a hamburger (which should have ham on it instead of cheese, really, if you stop to think about it), my mind automatically and involuntarily plays this song for me.

Because I want all of my readers to be cursed with the same problem, I bring you: Here I Am, by Lyle Lovett, and his Large Band.

Turn up your speakers and enjoy. The song is actually better without the video, so run it in a separate window or tab, or just shut your eyes. That is a commentary on the video's cinematographer and/or director, not on the appearance of Lyle. Although his looks were probably not why he was Mr. Julia Roberts for a while.

It's nice to know that someone else reads the newspaper over your shoulder. I always order a CHEESEburger. But no one ever notices.
