This is what this post is all about – EARWORMS!

From Wikipedia:  Earworm, a loan translation of the German Ohrwurm,[1] is a portion of a song or other music that repeats compulsively within one’s mind, known colloquially as “music being stuck in one’s head”.

For three days now, I have an earworm, which was planted into my ear by

Aura Dione – I Will Love You Monday

and which I am passing over to you now, too.

I hope, you enjoy it as much as I do!

What are YOUR most favorite earworms? Share them with us!

I mean: THANK GOD, IT’S FRIDAY!

    Wow, Austin City Limits is celebrating their 35th year on the air this year!
    Extra credit: who was the headliner on the first show?

    • AlphaBitch says:

      The Texas Playboys, along with Asleep at the Wheel. 1976. I was there.

      • bitohistory says:

        According to PBS, no. Close, think “honky-tonks.”
        Oct. ’74

          GAK!!! OK, I was in L-O-V-E and thought I was at the first taping -- maybe it was the first of the season??? He’s long gone for lying anyways…..

          How about Willie? Alvin Crow? Merle?

            “He’s long gone for lying” LOL
            You got it Willie Nelson.

            I think I had a 13″ B&W TV then and may have watched it about once a week then. Must have been quite the show to have been there at all.

            • AlphaBitch says:

              I hear tell that the Avett Brothers just taped a week or so ago. I’ve been back and forth from Austin twice this weekend; I would have given my left nut, if I had one, to have seen the Avett Brothers.

              I’ve been to several tapings -- Gillian Welch, Robert Randolph, Alison Krauss. And let’s not forget the Wheel…..

              Thanks, Bito -- a stroll down memory lane (or what’s left of it).

          • AlphaBitch says:

            Kris? I can play ’em all day long. I’ll give.

    Somebody needs to start cleaning, the furry ones have refused, so I guess that just leaves me.

    See you later. Take care.

  4. Kalima says:

    A tribute to Miles Davis who I had the pleasure of meeting at the “Ronnie Scott’s” club in London many years ago and of course the wonderful Chaka Chan, who sings her tribute to him.

    A quote from MD.

    Now back to good earworms. We played the shit out of this CD. It sucks they broke up after it.



  6. PatsyT says:

    OK KQuark and Mo
    Feel the pain….


  7. Mogamboguru says:

    KQuark -- I can counter you with a shocking example of another earworm-song, too:

    Dragostea Din Tei -- wait for the first 30 seconds to pass, before you start cringing:


    (A tip: They sing in Romanian…)

  8. Mogamboguru says:

    Aaaaah -- sweet memories!

    Rod Steward -- Sailing:


    First love!

    Sigh…

  9. KQuark says:

    OK my ONE example of a song you hate that tends to get stuck in your head.


  10. KQuark says:

    This song was stuck in my brain for a month. Just one of those catchy hooks that stay with you. Amel Larrieux was great in Group Theory as well.


  11. PatsyT says:

    After hearing my middle daughters music all through the house,
    This is what get stuck in my head …


  12. Mogamboguru says:

    Who the fuck is Alice?


    (No vids, only sound -- relax and be patient…) 😉

  13. Kalima says:

    Singing this last week, the cats fled upstairs.


  14. KQuark says:

    I think Kalima will love this one from Moloko.
