I have what is referred to as an earworm and it’s getting a bit ridiculous. Sometime last week I got this lovely 80’s classic from my younger days stuck in my head and I just can’t shake it:
Sorry about the quality but it’s actually almost exactly what it looks like in my brain as it plays over and over and over and over again.
As the days go by it’s starting to effect my life. I’m fantasying about my husband in overalls. I’m seriously considering buying a red dress and I keep telling everyone, “Ah come on let’s take off everything!”
It’s getting quite hard to concentrate when Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye is playing over and over at volume 10 in my brain. The song and video has even infiltrated my now overall clad dreams. I’ve listened to, “It’s a Small World” and other craptacular earwormy songs to try to push it out of my brain but it keeps skipping it’s way back into my head.
This event has left me with many more questions than answers. For one, why are they singing about a girl in a red dress when everyone in the video is wearing overalls? And is this the song I am going to feebly shout that they, “play it one more time, Sam” from my walker in the old-folks home? Yes, Sam will be at the same old-folks home as me, or at least I will think he is there.
Well, I have to go dance in the street now. Poor old Johnny Ray, I hope he doesn’t divorce me when I change my name to Eileen.
Have you ever had a song stuck in your head for over a week? What did you do to shake it? Should I buy overalls or a red dress?
