I've been doing some route planning for my US trip next month and so have had the line from Paul Simon's America "counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike" going around in my head all morning. 

I think I might just have to go there and do it!

Right now - the "Liberty Bell" march (AKA the theme tune to Monty Python's Flying Circus).

I think that John Lennon called it "Paul's Granny Music" phase.
I would have thought that "Sailing " by Rod Stewart was more appropriate for your trip.

Mr Lennon should not have been pointing fingers after producing Imagine.

No camping involved, maybe next time.

The band playing in the pub on Saturday surprised me in a most pleasant way when they did a couple of SAHB classics. I now have SAHB's epic take on Jacques Brel's Au Suivant (Next) lodged in my branes.

Some git on the radio last week pointed out that Bowie's Starman is the tune of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I don't think I'll ever be able to listen to it again.

It has crossed my mind that if you only ever listen to good music then you never have a problem with an "earworm". Having Bach, Mozart or Beethoven going on in your head is a pleasure. I'll make an exception for Fur Elise. I don't know who Elise was but she must have been really annoying.
Bach without a doubt.

Worse is when you get two tunes performing a spontaneous mashup inside your head-branez.  Exhibit 'A' for the prosecution: Neil Young's Powderfinger and The Bevis Frond's Preservation Hill.  A lot of Nick Saloman's guitar work gives a nod in Mr Young's direction.

Mum's alarm clock plays an electronic version of Fur Elise.
The problem is that Mum's hearing is defective, to the point where she cannot hear the alarm.
So it rings, and rings, and rings.......
I can usually hear it when I phone her.

Tchah!  When was the last time any of those hacks released any new material?  They're not even on Bandcamp, for goodness' sake O:-)

Possibly ironically, I’ve had The Sound of Silence running through my branes for the past couple of time periods. Well, a portion of it on repeat.
