From Wikipedia:
Quote:
Earworm, a loan translation of the German Ohrwurm, is a term for a song stuck in one's head, particularly an annoying one. Use of the English translation was introduced by James Kellaris, an associate professor of marketing at the University of Cincinnati. His studies appeared to demonstrate that different people have varying susceptibilities to earworms, but that almost everybody has been afflicted with one at some time or another.

So do you have any at the time? Right now I have "Who are you?" by The Who runing in a loop, Damn you CSI! angry

Give a dog a bone or some such by the Wiggles but I'm always thinking Cramps with that line.

Damn you Wiggles!

It's easy to get the two confused.

Azumanga Daioh opening song.
Quote:
Lu La lu La The piano is a melody in the world's field of blooming dreams
Believe in the broken clock and who's side will time be on

Why is my heart waiting so much for that tender-hearted someone?
Tell me a wonderful future Moonlight, moonlight sleepin'

Lu La lu La The girl of awakenings will kiss the apple of memories and
In a book opened with sorrow and longing, the bell meant for the two of us will ring

Because I want to hold you tight my dear one
Don't cry any more Good bye sadness
The words on the mysterious door read "Fancy Hearing Cake"*

Wonderland!
Welcome, to you
Fairyland!
It's the magic of love
Love's all way!
Every day, the temptations
of wheat, so fluffy

Cake for you!
Eat, for tonight is
Tea for you!
A tea-party in the constellations
The chorus of angels at the window
is to you, just your ear playing tricks?
The voice saying "I love you, I love you"

Earworms are horrible little critters that attack Kittens and, in sufficient numbers, can cause brain damage.

I thought someone was worried about their poor pussums.

Did they say anything about earwoms of songs or versions of songs that don't exist? Because I've been struck repeatedly with this marching band version of Don McLean's "American Pie", which I'd swear I've never heard (a marching band version, I mean)...


Its said as climbers lose oxygen while climbing, they begin to see and even communicate with 'ghost climbers' and symphonies and marching music starts to sound in their heads.. Perhaps you need to take deeper breaths?
