“Giddy Giddy City”: Finally, courtesy of the veteran pop band Sparks, #HisNA has the ideal civic marketing slogan.

It’s like a bolt of lightning from the firmament.

For those who don’t recall New Albany’s epochal experience with Come To City, go here: From 2011 and 2015: Regaining consciousness in a city “coming” to? Or, the infamous Come to City marketing fiasco of 2011.

One significant and purely terrifying addition was a proposed visual symbol and embedded tag phrase: Develop New Albany’s longtime logo, topped by the words “Come To City.”

Meanwhile, commit these words to memory; soon enough, they’ll become mandatory, along with the pledge and national anthem.

Giddy Giddy, by Sparks

Giddy giddy giddy
Our entire city
Each and every person the
Epitome of giddiness
We’re giddy giddy giddy
Our entire city
Everyone displaying an
Immense amount of giddiness
And I’m a travelin’ man
In a foreign land
Often I suppress
My inherent giddiness
Until I’m finally home
Throw away the comb
Kick up all my heels
And resume my giddiness
(And I’ll resume my giddiness)
We’re giddy giddy giddy
Struttin’ round the city
“How are you today?”
“I’m feelin’ pretty pretty giddy how are you?”
“I’m pretty giddy, last week was a pity
Had a touch of flu and felt a little less than giddy giddy”
Now I’m back to giddy, couldn’t feel more giddy, if my life depended on it
“Glad to know you’re back to giddy!”
Giddy giddy giddy
Our entire city
Each and every person the
Epitome of giddiness
Giddy giddy wife
Flower of my life
Kids are all asleep
She’s thinking giddiness
And so and so am I
Sparkles in her eye
Both of us display
A little extra giddiness
(A little extra giddiness)
Giddy giddy kids
Often blow their lids
Normally they’re giddy
But at times they’re acting up
Had enough
Go to bed
’til you’re giddy
’til you’re giddy
Real giddy!
From another city
Where nobody’s giddy
Comes a scientific group
To analyse our giddiness
“Their water ain’t too giddy
Their diet ain’t too giddy
We’re prettier than they are
But they’re infinitely giddier!”
Giddy giddy giddy
Their entire city
Each and every person the
Epitome of giddiness
They’re giddy giddy giddy
Their entire city
Everyone displaying an
Immense amount of giddiness
We can ? their town
Never never ?
Endorphins really flow
Why it is – don’t really know
We need a bigger grant
Thus we’re hesitant
Honestly, no clue
Why they so damn giddy giddy?
Giddy giddy giddy
Their entire city
Each and every person the
Epitome of giddiness
They’re giddy giddy giddy
Their entire city
Everyone displaying an
Immense amount of giddiness
Giddy giddy giddy
There is so much giddiness
Giddy giddy giddy
Giddy giddy giddy
Giddy giddy giddy
Giddy giddy giddy
