What's stuck in your head?

Hello smile
Currently it's MC Hammer 'You can't touch this' thanks to the meerkats' most recent offering.
Which at least makes sense.

Prior to that it was inexplicably the theme tune from The Sweeney.
Not the main theme tune, but the moody version with the saxophone that you sometimes got over the end credits.

What's currently your internal soundtrack?

The Wellerman. Mind you, I was singing it to myself on my late night power walk and tripped over a kerb stone as I wasn’t concentrating: could have been really nasty....

Bathsheba JCSS is my all time favourite stage musical.

Mollygo I've never heard of 'All God's creatures got a place in the choir'. It's a lovely inspiration for an illustration (and Lord knows I'm hungry for inspiration!)
I will look up the song. Thank you smile

Well I’m going to bed with I don’t know how to love him playing on a loop. On account of having watched I am Woman, the story of Helen Reddy (it was her first single).
Not complaining about this earworm cos it’s one of my all time favourite songs 😊

Baby shark. It's dgd's fault!

New York Girls by Bellowhead. I chanced upon it on YouTube socially distanced from their homes and it is still going round my head.

SueDomin .. I hope it goes away after a nights sleep.

CrazyH .. I'm so sorry to read this. My condolences flowers

Namsnanny Sun 17-Jan-21 02:52:50

Callistemon... trying to find someone, Thanks smile

Namsnanny Sun 17-Jan-21 02:50:46

hollysteers that is a lovely thought, and strikes quite a chord with me.
C.S.Lewis had a difficult time in his early years I believe.

Mollygo.. Thank you, yes aspects keep me awake at night sometimes.

Thanks for the flowers FC

‘All God’s creatures got a place in the choir’ -heard it sung by the Houghton Weavers and for some reason it comes to mind whenever I’m doing housework.

'All you need is Radio Gaga'🎶🎶

It must be being used as an advert for something but goodness knows what.

Callistemon Sat 16-Jan-21 22:56:18

Namsnanny I hope you have someone you can talk to about this, it's not good to carry guilt about something you can't change.

I always wake up singing’ Deck the halls with boughs of holly’, I have for years, summer and winter !!!

You might want to get some therapy BB 😄
Obviously this song has some deep meaning for you ( or not).
I am all agog as to why you do it.

Those blasted meerkats....I agree about the ‘can’t touch this’ it’s been my earworm for days.

Nymphs and Shepherds!! confused

Bathsheba Sat 16-Jan-21 22:07:13

Same as you tonight FannyC - but this is after my son sent me the 'Can't teach this' parody posted by Liverpool 'comedimum', Sophie McCartney, which is hilarious! (don't know the meerkats one 🤔)

GagaJo Sat 16-Jan-21 21:48:05

Theme tune to Star Wars. Which is annoying because I can't stand Star Wars and have never watched it all the way through.

But a student was humming it in the dining room and now it is stuck in MY ear. Bl**dy kids.

Puff the Magic Dragon, Lived by the Sea. GS aged 4 has it on a loop. For 10 long hours. Every week. It's just beginning to fade in my brain when bam! He's back again and off it goes for another week. I'm trying to introduce A Mouse Lived In A Windmill......

Blossoming Sat 16-Jan-21 21:33:25

Darth Vader’s theme from the Star Wars soundtrack. No idea why 🙂

Grannybags Sat 16-Jan-21 21:18:06

Today it's been Driving home for Christmas - goodness knows why!

It's nearly always something I don't like which makes it even more annoying

SueDonim Sat 16-Jan-21 20:38:09

The only thing stuck in my head rn is a migraine. I might have an ear worm later if it goes away.

crazyH Sat 16-Jan-21 20:36:03

Dancing in the Sky (lost my brother and another relative last week) , but I should stop thinking of this song...makes me sadder..

Gingster Sat 16-Jan-21 20:34:27

“Bring me food and bring me wine. “🤣

vampirequeen Sat 16-Jan-21 20:31:54

That's a lovely thought hollysteers.

Mollygo Sat 16-Jan-21 20:30:29

Sorry Namsnanny. We are often haunted by things we wish we’d done differently. How hard for you when it was your father. Hollysteers put it really
