OUT, DAMNED EAR WORM!

by Norah Wilson
(the Wilson in Wilson Doherty)

Ever get a song stuck in your head? If you’re really, really lucky, it’s a song you don’t mind living with for a day or two. I’m rarely that fortunate. For me, it’s usually a song or a phrase from a song that I find extremely irritating. And if I didn’t find it irritating before it went viral on my freakin’ brain, I sure as heck do by the time I finally purge it. I used to almost like that James Blunt song (you know the one: Yawr beautifawwwl. Yawr beautifawwl. Yawr beautifawwl, it’s true) ... until it got stuck in my head one day.

This morning, I was accidentally exposed to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me”, and I’ve been living with it all day. (Pour some sugar on may, ooh, in the name of love. Pour some sugar on may; c'mon fire me up...) But I supppose it could have been worse. Could have been a Nickelback song. Or an advertising jingle.

So, what’s the worst ear worm you ever got? And how long did it last?

guy from Duke Energy calls this morning with a short phone interview intended to help us cut energy costs....he asks me whether our hot water heaters run on gas or electric to which I reply IT'S ELECTRIC..and we both start humming the song. I hope he has moved on....

Bwa-ha-ha! I love it, Sue. But have YOU moved on? "It's electric, oo-oooh, yeah..."
