earworm: a catchy song or tune that runs continually through a person’s mind
Okay, then, now that we’re sure about the definition of this week’s stream of consciousness prompt…There are a couple of groups that regularly put an earworm in my brain.
Maroon 5 has been responsible for more than a few bouts of humming in the parking lot. “Sugar,” “This Love,” and “Harder to Breathe” have all stuck solid, sometimes disappearing for a while only to return when I catch it on the radio again.
Imagine Dragons can do a solid loop in the noggin, too. “Thunder,” “Believer,” and “Radioactive” have all spent time on mental repeat, and I can’t say that I mind.
Less fun examples of stuff that gets stuck and just won’t get out no matter how hard I head bang: “The Wheels on the Bus Go ‘Round and ‘Round” (ack! shoot me now!), the “Jeopardy” countdown ditty (doo-da doo-doo doo-da-doo…), the alphabet song (L-M-N-O-P is the bane of my existence), and “YMCA” all come to mind.
Is it weird that I don’t have a habitual earworm? It seems like there are folks who’ve got a special song, one that spins ’round and ’round their head, but me? Nope. Nada. I’d like to think it’s because there’s always music flowing around here. Or maybe I’ve got too much other junk cluttering up the gray matter for spare musical hoo ha.
Either way, I appreciate the general silence.
Linda’s stream of consciousness prompt drives our Saturday fun. This week’s prompt is “earworm. Talk about your latest earworm, or one that habitually haunts you.”
