I'm sure I've been out with people and asked the question, "Whatever happened to pong?" all the while knowing the answer...

I can't drive past a storage place without saying "My life is ... in storage" and then putting on the song.

Wow. A French guy making a Spanish joke in English. If you really want to, you can practice Esperanto.

Not a song but I once read an interview with the band Cud years ago. The singer recalled a baffling exchange with Black Francis who told him, apropos of nothing, to "respect the potato". For some reason this stuck in my head and to this day I sometimes find myself mouthing "respect the potato" when about to mash said vegetable.

Is that a Frankism? Probably not but hey.

I do this one

I bet there are 15 others I do but none are coming to mind

When the person on the subway next to me has fleas or smells, I might start singing to myself "I Gotta Move."

Or if the kids start acting up, I'll say "talking back is a bad offense."

When grocery shopping in the dessert section I'll sometimes sing (in my mind) 'custard all the way'

Similarly, I do the same to 'I need peas'

I got peas turned up so loud.

Can't believe I haven't mentioned this before, but just today when talking to somebody I said "Don't get me wrong.." and you can pretty much guess where it went from there.

Theres a Tim and Eric sketch where their characters interview Frank, apparently without knowing who he is. He halfheartedly sings a few bars of Gouge Away before giving up in apparent despair. My friend and I quote that video constantly.
