I've been on vacation visiting the fam, and mostly offline. It felt great. Disconnecting is good for the soul.

Today my brain is rewarding me by setting the words from Hotel California to the melody of the Piña Colada Song. On repeat. Endlessly.

May it bring you as much joy as it brings me.

Yep. After listening to it for the first time just now I already have the feeling that the song will remain stuck in my head after I go to bed tonight. #earworm #Kylie #KylieMinogue #PadamPadam #music

Got an #earworm ATM (Friend Or Foe - Adam Ant). Asked the missus if she had any idea why (maybe she'd had it on the radio, music player, or something) She said "I couldn't even say how it goes - but I'm sure you can tell me" 😂

Went to bed last night and a song started running through my head. I couldn't remember what decade the song was from or who sang it (for some reason I thought it might be Billy Joel or maybe even 10CC or their offshoot, Godley & Creme - all have put out songs where they used fairly high voices). It was just these (slightly incorrect) 4 lines constantly playing on repeat in my head:

"I know there's gonna be violence
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
Why should we suffer in silence?
When there's nothing left to break"

The song was still in my head when I woke up this morning, and it has been an earworm constantly since then. So I did a quick search online. Of course I was completely wrong when it came to the artist.

I reckon this is one of Robbie Williams' best songs. #music #RobbieWilliams #earworm

In today’s episode of
“Why is this song in my head?”

Self Control by Laura Branigan

It’s not bad for 80s synth pop, but it’s not anything I would ever choose to listen to. It got radio play in the 80s when I was little and I have older sisters so I probably heard them listening to it.

Why did it pop in my head today, though?

Does anyone else get an earworm of a song you haven’t heard or thought about in years?

Passed out at 10 pm and didn't wake up until my alarm went off. But for some reason, I woke up with "Sweet Caroline" on the brain, despite having no Neil Diamond on my playlist, and I can't remember the last time I heard the song. Now I can't get it out of my head. #earworm

Surprised myself by scoring 4 out of 5 on this musical hooks quiz, especially since most of the song examples were from genres that I normally don't listen to. I struggled most with the question where the hook was played only with hands clapping. How good are you at recognising popular music hooks/riffs? #music #pop #PopMusic #science #quiz #quizzes #MusicQuiz #psychology #earworm

"From Beethoven's 5th Symphony to Britney Spears' ... Baby One More Time, there are some songs that we just can't seem to shake from our memories.

There's a reason — and it all comes back to the hook, which is loosely defined as a moment in music that stands out or stays in our head."

Love a tune with lotsa layers, sweeping tone changes, dark lyrics, doot-doot-doots, big brass, moody strings, and more — this has got it all!

Good morning. 🍒🍒🍒

Like an Ice cream cowboy, riding out on a bus with a box full of Oreos. 🎶🎵

More lyrics I thought up, I can't seem to shake the Rhinestone Cowboy tune.

I'm taking my wife to the airport this afternoon; she's flying to Georgia for a week to attend a couple of funerals. Very sad.

“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.” - Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

These are red (wild) southern dew berries on a bed of green leaves and grass.  They aren't quite ripe.  These berries grow wild all over the area.  Southern dew berries are in the blackberry family; indeed, it is hard to tell the difference between dew berries and blackberries.  I think blackberries may be a bit larger.

The Smurf theme is an anti-earworm. It doesn’t get stuck in your head. Moreover, if you have an #earworm, humming the Smurf theme will clear it out.

Sounds unlikely, but it works for me.

There is a delicate balance to writing a melodic idea that has both enough variety and a sufficient amount of repetition to get stuck in people's heads as an ear worm. Uh..good luck with that.😂 But seriously, there are books and tutorials w/exercises on practicing coming up with hooky melodies. Have fun! :catjam:

Today I woke up with 'Something Kinda Ooooh!' by #GirlsAloud as an #earworm. Dunno what my brain was up to overnight, but okay.

It has now been replaced by the dreadful dirge that is 'Tonight I Celebrate My Love' by Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack.

Come back, Girls Aloud! All is forgiven!

I have an #earworm antidote that always works for me: Beach Boys, Good Vibrations. If I think my way through the tricky harmonies and overlapping lyrics for a while it seems to displace anything else that was occupying the infested part of the brain, and it's complicated enough that it doesn't cling on as a replacement earworm.

Is anyone else still trying to understand their "post-pandemic" brains? Ever since 2020, I've had a very poor relational sense of past, present, & future.

Last few weeks I've had weird retro ear worms... odd because I haven't been listening to music at all for months.

This morning's ear worm? Pocahontas by Neil Young which led me to spontaneously understand the Marlon Brando reference 30 years after first hearing the song. It's a Sacheen Littlefeather reference!
