Return of the earworm

My earworm has returned. Actually, I don't think it ever went away, but this morning it is particularly annoying. Why? Because I don't have one song fragment stuck in my head, but two. They merge into each other, and then lead into a third song, none of which I particularly like.

I have the chorus of Walking in Light by Th'Dudes, a 1970s kiwi rock band, going round and round. "I'm walking in light, I'm walking in light, I'm walking in light." I don't mind it too much, but it's been in my head for too long today and is starting to annoy me.

This leads into the instrumental riff of Computer Games by Mi-Sex, a, 80s new-age song and band I don't care much for. (Why me??)

And, just to complete the hat trick, my earworm is leading both these songs into A Glass of Champagne by Sailor.

Unbelievable! I don't know why my earworm decided to choose three kiwi rock/pop songs from the 70s and 80s to taunt me with today. None are particularly connected in any way, yet musically they are forming an ongoing medley which is slowly but surely driving me to my iPod. (For the record, I was listening to other music for a while, then got into the shower ... guess what returned?)

What's your earworm playing for you today? Do you have one? Do you want mine??

Nope, no earworm today, but usually if it's there it plays various video game themes in my head. I don't mind those... lol

Mine woke me up this morning with Alicia Key's song "A Woman's Worth". Guess that's what I get for the mood I was in when I went to bed last night.

I've had Shihad stuck in my head for the last few days. I don't know the name of the song (one of their new ones) and I only know one line and it just keeps repeating and repeating and repeating and repeating and repeating...
