2 o'clock this morning, I woke up with Loudon Wainwright III's Uptown going through my head. Took me an hour to get back to sleep.

This morning I had three thoughts in my head:

Who else wakes up at 2 o'clock in the morning with Loudon Wainwright III's Uptown in their head?

Who else knows the words to Wainright's Uptown?

Who has ever even heard Loudon's Uptown?

The local PBS station aired an old two-part version of Wuthering Heights a week or so ago. Watched the first part last night. Sarah Lancashire as Nelly!

So I have Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights running thru my head.

Yep. Earworm hell again.

Only you, I'm far more likely to wake up at 1:30 or 4:45.
Me, me, me. I seem to have a Wainwright affinity for the whole family's music.
Far more people than realize it.

Celebration by Kool and the Gang. It's the first song I heard this morning and I can't get rid of it.

"Don't Save Me" - Haim

Popped into my head during my shower this morning and has been playing intermittently all day.

Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight

I heard a song "Golden Blunders" last night by a group called The Posies I think. That led to it.

I think I know that song. One of his best.

Anyway ...

Gotta fix something about my Wuthering Heights post. I was puzzled by why I should remember that Kate Bush song so well. Hardly ever heard it back then and then not in decades. But I finally remembered: Pat Benatar covered it and that's on one of the albums on the SD card in my car stereo. So it's Pat's version, not Kate's that was running thru my head.

Better, bu still not a plus.

I was looking at some MTV award show clips and that made me curious to hear some more Lizzo.

Truth Hurts is fun to listen to. Until the only two lines you know get stuck in your head!

I think I'll go read the lyrics. Maybe being able to get past those two lines will finally get it out of my head.

"You'll Be Back" from Hamilton*. So many good songs in that show, but that one crushes all the others with its earworminess. Why couldn't it have at least been "Room Where it Happens"?

*For context: sung by King George to the revolting American colonists

I've been in an immature mood all day, and the only song in my head is Enormous Penis.
