Killer Queen by Queen.

(Backing music to a YouTube video, been playing in my head all day).

Anybody else got one?

I am never without one, even during the night. Today it is Jason Dononan's 'Together Forever'.
There is one that has been annoying me recently which has the line 'I don't know if you want me to come over' repeated many times throughout the song. I have driven myself mad!

Dolly Parton - 9 to 5
It’s been played a lot on the radio recently and I’m not sure why ?

My ear worms are usually something annoying that I don't like.

However my dil has just sent me a video of my granddaughter having her ballet lesson via Zoom and I've got lovely classical music at the moment.

The only annoying thing about it is I should know what the piece is called and can't remember!

I’ve got flaming YMCA on a loop, I hate it!😡🤬
I didn’t know they were called ear worms, never too old to learn something new.

Embarrassed to say that while making a curry my DH told me I've been huming 'the wombles of Wimbledon'.

After watching the double Dutch video on another thread,it reminded me of Malcolm McClaren....I have had Buffalo Girls on a loop for a few days

I've had Nimrod on the brain all week.
It's lovely but is played on sad occasions.

I need something more cheerful

I've been singing Queen, Love of my Life for days. Its getting annoying now.
I even resorted to asking Alexa to play it for me, but it hasn't gone away.

Chandelier by Sia. As I can only remember the words ‘I want to swing from the chandelier’ it is a tad inappropriate for my advanced years. I would imagine it’s a popular number at the ArgieBargie!

And I wish I hadn't clicked on this thread. Bloody Killer Queen.

During the summer months one of my neighbours had Cher's "Do You Believe in Life After Love" playing on a continuous loop. For weeks and weeks and weeks. I can still hear the damned thing in my head now.

Oops, sorry grin

New York. New York. And I hate it, hate that sort of music!

Callistemon Sat 14-Nov-20 18:59:21

Still Nimrod

Sings loudly:
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

Me too Lucca until I saw Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras singing New York, New York with such enthusiasm and joy that I was immediately smitten!

EllanVannin Sat 14-Nov-20 19:12:51

Sorry Callistemon but I had to laugh at that.

EllanVannin Sat 14-Nov-20 19:16:29

I was singing Thankyou for the Music to one of the cats on my bed the other night grin No reason, it just came into my head

I nearly always seem to have an ear worm. Some are there for days, others are gone in a matter of hours. Most of the time they are songs I like and that's okay but sometimes not, not okay.
Today's ear worm is Lazy Sunday by the Small Faces. It's Saturday hmm.

I nearly always have the same earworm - The Bonnie Blue Flag (what???). I heard it in a John Wayne film and have been stuck with it ever since! Weird!

Shakin' the Blues Away from Easter Parade has been through my head since Saturday and the rest of the music.

I'm sashaying round the floor
Kickin' my heels up high... all the time since I heard it.
