Earworms

You know how you get a song stuck in your head sometimes? It seems I ALWAYS have a song in my head - it's never quiet in there. Sometimes it's a song I heard recently on the radio or on TV, but often it's just a random song and I have no clue why it has popped up to sing in my brain. Tonight, as I was folding and putting away the last load of laundry, Donna Summer was singing "Last Dance" in my head. Where did that come from?!? Was my subconscious trying to tell me something? Do you ever wonder that? If the random song in your brain is really a message to you? Why else would it just pop in there with no explanation? I think it's rather odd. Sometimes I wish I could just turn off the music and be QUIET. Where's the MUTE button?

Maybe I shouldn't sit up until midnight eating Fritos and bean dip so much.......

I *totally* know what you are talking about. It makes me run around screaming, "The music in my head is too loud!" Some days it is definitely louder than others. And I'm very suggestible. One note can trigger a slew of songs. And the annoying thing is that it's always just a clip. So, I'm stuck humming that over and over and over and over again. ugh. I sing my ABC's to get rid of it.

I too suffer from this strange malady and it is never quiet in my head either. Sometimes, besides the weird songs that pop up, I even do tap dance steps to them. What is that???

Me, too, Mom - tap dancing!! Crazy!

Y'all are weird. Bubba dances to the songs in his head, too. Maybe it's genetic?

"Earworms" sounds gross. I'd much rather have music in my head than actual worms in my ears...

And that, dear readers, is what's on Bubba's mind.
