There's nothing you can really do except... turn around every now and then.

Earworms are highly infectious organisms. You are spreading a disease!
I'd not thought of that song for a decade and now it's going round many yacf heads.

Now I'm only falling apart.
Nothing I can do...

I used to work with her uncle. He was very proud of her.

I'm lucky being immune to ear worms because I never notice the words to songs.

Except Dylan's.

The only way to get a really annoying choon out of your head is to replace it with one even more annoying.

I can heartily recommend Spotify, I've been listening to songs that I haven't heard in ages, and the adverts aren't too intrusive.

Currently listening to Iron Maiden. I'd never pay for it, but at least I know they'll get their royalties for me listening to it.

So, the question is: was she ever outstanding in her field?

WTF was the video about?  The "bright eyes" were a bit literal.

I am pleased to say that I have read through this thread and not one of the song titles mentioned is known to me. I can therefore continue to enjoy imagining Mozart's clarinet concerto being played.

Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

For the entire first night of PBP, I had the first verse of Half Man Half Biscuit's "Our Tune" on permanent repeat:

You said you’d found me helpless on the A47
Shouting at the passers-by that Alan Brazil
Seems to be the singer in the Goombay Dance Band
And now you want to put me in the ambulance
But I don’t want to go in the ambulance

Now that's irony  ???

A new temp was quietly singing <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/18LLfZzDYnQ&rel=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/18LLfZzDYnQ&rel=1</a> to herself.
Unfortunately I overheard it as I passed by.  >:(
