Ear worms

    Those infuriating short sound loops from a song that play inside your head endlessly when you are doing something mindless like digging or loading firewood.

    Yesterday while carting topsoil into the poly tunnel I had Joe Jones singing 'you talk too much, you worry me to death...taa-aa-aalk too too much'...over and over.
    And over.

    Made a change from the usual ABBA or 1970s disco songs...but still very annoying.

    Share your earworms. Which songs have afflicted you?

    Heard it on the radio one morning earlier this week and had a hell of a job shutting it out

    I haven't listened to the album version of Clampdown for years and had forgotten about the bit at the beginning that I could never decipher. A bit of searching on the net soon turned up what Joe actually is saying. I just can't get it out of my head now. Certainly not annoying though.

    The kingdom is ransacked
    the jewels all taken back
    and the chopper descends
    they're hidden in the back
    with a message on a half-baked tape
    with the spool going round
    saying I'm back here in this place
    and I could cry
    and there's smoke you could click on

    This one is most insidious to me... The Cars, You Might Think. In fact, just posting this, I now have it in my head. Argh.
