Earworm again

For weeks my earworm has been mumbling incoherently to a orchestral refrain I can’t place. I’m wondering if it’s a ring tune. It sounded like dumb dumb dairry /dumb dumb dairry /dumb dumb dairry daaaaha The fog has lifted on the lyrics. Apparently they are: Tons of berries Tons of berries Tons of berriesTa! Better […]

Sunday Earworm

My earworm is singing. It’s a bizarre Les Mis/Pink Floyd mash. Do you hear the people so ya think ya would like to be the son I might have had, if God had given me another brick in the wall I think my earworm needs help.

Letter to my Earworm

Dear earworm Dont get me wrong, I love Pink Floyd but in the current climate do you really think “and the worms ate in to his brain” A suitable line for lockdown Love Me xx

You see the earworm’s fixated on  “I want to go […]

I am not a number…

My Earworm has – even for an earworm – a strange taste in music.  He likes big numbers with lots of instruments playing all at once. In the past he’s featured Les Mis, La Cage aux Folles, and War of the Worlds. In quieter moments he’s been known to do a medley of Gilbert and […]

Daily Prompt: Earworms of Your Mind

An earworm is a curious creature; I have the sneakin’ suspicion there’s no fathoming them – or their musical taste. Currently mine is obsessed with Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra – most embarrassing when the kids in your class regard anything in the charts last year as: “well old” and “past it!” But what is […]
