What Is This Song?!

All I’ve got is part of the chorus: “You’ve… got… me… runnin’ arouuuuund in circles, runnin’ arouuuund in circles, runnin’ around in—”

I think it’s one of those lesser-known 90’s tunes, but that’s all I can remember of it! I’ve tried Amazon/CDNow, I’ve tried Google, I’ve tried the Ultimate Band List, and nothing’s helping. I thought I had it, and I downloaded a tune called Getting Nowhere by Into Another, but that wasn’t it at all.

Anyone got any ideas?

    THE FIGHT LYRICS

    “(I’m Running Around In) Circles”

    I?m moving out today, got to get away
    I?ve got to find a place to settle down
    I?ve had enough of this. I?ve got to find a place
    Where people care for me and don?t put me down
    It might sound silly, but you?re the cause of this
    ?Cause I can?t take the way you run around
    I must admit I?ve had my share of fun
    But that?s all over now it?s time to run

    Because you?ve got me
    Running around in circles
    I?m running around in circles
    Running around—
    I?m looking for you

    I?ve been away now just over a year
    And I must tell you, I can?t settle down
    I thought I?d write to you just to let you hear
    About my story; don?t put it down

    Because you?ve got me
    Running around in circles
    I?m running around in circles
    Running around—
    I?m looking for you

  2. You know, I found that one, too, but since it’s a brand-new song (well, 2003 or something) by a brand-new band, I don’t think that’s it. I haven’t downloaded it yet to make sure, though. It’s also not the Sunny Day Real Estate song “In Circles,” and I’m still downloading a Soul Coughing song to see if that’s it.

    Thanks for looking, dude!

  3. Yay, Soulseek! I found it! It’s by Soul Coughing, and now I can finally get it out of my head:

    When you were languishing in rooms I built to foul you in
    And when the wind set down in funnel form and pulled you in

    I don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in
    don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in

    When the ghostly dust of violence traces everything
    And when the gas runs out just wreck it, you insured the thing

    I don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in
    don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in

    Doom da doom da doom
    Well I know what I’m doin’
    Doom da doom da doom
    Well I know what I’m doin’
    Doom da doom da doom
    Well I know what I’m doin’
    Doom da doom da doom
    Well I know what I’m doin’

    But I can’t sigh now that you made the move
    It has gone and gone to dogs, lay down on the floor
    For the right price I can get everything
    Slip into the car, go driving to the farthest star

    I don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in
    don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in
    don’t need to walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in circles
    walk around in

  4. Damn. I don’t check in everyday and miss my only calling in life. Random stupid pop culture about my favorite band.

    Circles by Soul Coughing from ‘El Oso’

    Anyways, I found some Death Cab from the official site.

    If you like them, check out The Postal Service. Very catchy stuff.

  5. and yes that was erk.

    I beg to differ and say that ‘Circles’ was one of the more popular late 90’s songs and one of Soul Coughing’s finest. I have all three albums if you’d like that PLUS I have most of Doughty’s solo acoustic stuff after the band broke up. Just him and his guitar.

  6. I just assumed Circles was one of the lesser-known tunes since I couldn’t seem to find anyone who knew what the hell I was talking about when I’d sing the chorus. 🙂 That, plus Aaron hadn’t known about the band The Judybats, and I’d loved their one 90’s song “Being Simple,” and he’d never heard of it, so I thought maybe I’d hit another lesser-known thing. Ah, well.
