O/T Earworms

Postby eric olthwaite » Fri Jul 29, 2011 9:48 pm

An occasional thread dedicated to the irritating experience of waking up in the morning with a song going round in your head which you are then utterly unable to shake off. Nine times out of ten it's a song you really bloody hate.

A few weeks ago I had, for no apparent reason, Red Barchetta. I fucking loathe Rush.

At the minute - and this is largely owing to my kids' shit taste - I can't get rid of this cunt.

What's bugging you? Load 'em up.

Earworms, you say, hmm? What about your eyes?.

And that, right there, is exactly why I don't have kids. They'd be in a weighted sack bound for the canal within minutes.

Does anyone else deliberately try to think of another earworm to get rid of the one that's bugging you? It's the aural equivalent of introducing myxamatosis, but it does work. Trouble is then you need a dog to catch all the cats, and then a lion to catch all the dogs... don't blame me if you end up singing La Cucharacha out loud by the end of the day.
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

I had the opposite experience of waking up with this belter in my head this morning, it was like waking up inside my iPod. Mega.

You've nailed it with this thread. I've had this bastard in my head for fucking months. I was singing it at work the other day. :dj: :oops:

Nice, but this is killing all comers now. And it fades away with time...

There was a lad called Mindaugas Kalonas playing for my local club in Dublin, Bohemians during the 2008 season, Lithuanian international, very useful player. Anyway, his chant was based on that song, "Oh, we love Minda Kalonas, scoring goals in the rain....'etc. Scored in the big Dublin derby and the winning penalty in a shoot out to clinch the double in the cup final before leaving so was a bit of a cult hero.

Meant that every game you left, that song was stuck in your head, proper fucking nightmare. In fact, that'll be stuck in my head all day now, dunno why I opened this thread....

Anyone else used to get the 'Hey Macarena' song stuck in their head every time Claude Makelele was mentioned by a commentator on telly?? 'Hey, Makelele. A-Hai!

We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Don't worry, I've been obsessed with Dusty since the age of 19.

It's alright, I realise I've got no chance. On two counts.
