An earworm, sometimes known as a brainworm, sticky music, stuck song syndrome, or Involuntary Musical Imagery (INMI) is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person’s mind after it is no longer playing.

just in case you don’t suffer from earworms…

weirdly, the first song that popped into my head today, I always have some song drilling away in the background, was Looking through the window By the Jackson Five. Given that the last time I heard it was probably in the 1970’s, it shows just what a weird space is between my ears.

The second song to re-wire my mind today, was a just down the road from the soul genre…

Pixies – Where is my mind. So similar, covered in Pixie juice, and a common segue… NOT!

How one leads to the other even I’m not going to begin to fathom. My head is always on random shuffle.

And then, just when I thought it was safe… A third tune bubbled up like a muddy geyser,

This one is not so strange, as same as it ever was is a familiar mantra that I use almost daily.

  1. OMG Dale… I totally relate. I regularly talk about my earworm syndrom. Like you, it seems like my brain is playing the DJ, providing me with an almost constant soundtrack… But when earworms hit, like the nasty little things they are, I can go for days and days, humming a jingle, or the chorus of a song nobody else remembers!

    And the link between what’s happening in my life, and the song in my head is not always clear… LOL

    Sorry for being quiet lately… xx
