Normally earworms are a source of torture for this sentient being, but for the past few days I've been a-rockin' and a-rollin' (heavy!) to The Osmonds' "Crazy Horses", powering me throughout the day as I boogie through all my worksites.

So I've set up a music thing in the kitchen for Mrs. FtG to listen to tunes while getting her cooking on. It has Amazon Prime music and I added a mp3 thing the other day with a ton of tunes on it. So I played one folder to test it out: Sonny and Cher (or just Cher).

So I have I've Got You Babe running thru my head, right? Nope: Bang, Bang.

Egad. Why that one?

Some songs are just fine once in a while. In earworm mode they are deadly.

Last weekend my daughter and I (again) watched Jesus Christ Superstar. Now I have all those stupid songs stuck in my head.

Theme from "The Office".

Watched an episode an hour ago. That's not so long for an earworm so I suspect it will go away soon.

Camila Cabello, "Havana."

A recurring earworm of mine.

Maroon 5 has a new song out. Memories has been playing in my head for days.

I enjoy the song, but I'd be ok with a break from it.

It's my own fault.

Saw the Hand Washing Songs thread, took about 3 nanoseconds to think of the Baby Shark song. It's such an obvious choice. Had to go to Youtube to get the link and time some of it.

Yep. My fault and my fault alone. Wait ... Anny Middon started that thread. Maybe this a deliberate attempt to get that earworm into my head. Yeah, I can blame someone else now! As a great person once said: "The buck stops here." "It's not my fault."

Now I've graduated from "Crazy Horses" to one of the best top 40 songs I think I've ever heard: The Way by a band called Fastball. The video itself is meh, but the tune is way too catchy for its own good - going on at least a week now. All the time. Kinda sad - the true story behind it - probably giving me thoughts I shouldn't be entertaining, but damn that melodious chorus in (I think) a minor key, in particular. Quite hooky.

Deteriorata from National Lampoon. All because Desiderata is appearing in one of my FB groups. Deteriorata is an excellent spoof on Desiderata.
