What has been your most annoying earworm in the last three months? Needn't be bad music, just unbearably persistent.

Not helped that it's on some TV show promo - I can't remember the program, or even if it's actually "Power", but it's one of Grimes' and even if it's not "Power" that's lodged my ailing brain thinks it is Cheesy

This has been on SO, SO many times on Auntie.  I don't want to see (Auntie refers to the BBC, for those of you who don't live in the UK)

AAAARGH !! Not listening

Thank you for making me think about the most annoying 'tune', Alexander. Now this will stick with me for hours. Cry Cry Cry Cry

I'll put some Quo on later to clear it. Tongue

Cheers - Phil

A Jewish friend tells me he once found himself whistling the Horstwessellied walking down the street after playing a WWII video game. He got some odd looks - it was in Berlin.

I find And One's "Panzermensch" very catchy.

It's technically not actually about tanks, it's just the half assed English assumption-translation misses the crucial idiom. And it does sound like music to invade someone to...

Watched it again a few nights ago. Am doing heavy work in and on house. Find myself wandering around humming the departing chant:

Made an recurring mistake of hitting on u tube for '80's music VERY  early the other morning whilst on the booze....now stuck with Wang Chung: 'Dance Hall Days' and ''The Safety Dance'...Men Without Hats!
Didn't even like them much...back in the day...but they were on the Video Jukebox, (which Burned stuff into your Brain when you were down the pub most nights...it only had about 30 vids?!)...and I am now in the 'Want to go Back!' phase of life!!!   Grin Shocked Sad  Grin

I quite like "Safety Dance"  Embarrassed........And for some reason that's reminded me of 'Rock me Amadeus'.....That'll stick with me for the rest of the day. I don't want to see
