Ear Worms.

Monday Mixtape: Scary Songs THE EARWORM

No, not the He put creatures in our bodies kind, Mr. Chekov — the kind where the saccharine strains of It’s a Small World (you’re welcome) echo through your noggin, unbidden, for days, sometimes weeks, at a time.  It’s a phenomenon we’ve all experienced, and with that in mind, I thought I’d share a few of the persistent ear worms I’ve endured.

You have been warned.

  • The Lion Sleeps Tonight  Yeah, just try to get a-wimoweh a-wimoweh a-wimoweh a-wimoweh out of your head anytime soon.
  • Island Girl Tell me what you wanting with the white man’s world
  • Carrie Anne  Hey, Carrie Anne, what’s your game now? Can anybody play?
  • Kokomo   Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya, to Bermuda, Bahama, come on, pretty mama, Key Largo, Montego, baby why don’t we go…
  • The Gambler  You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, and know when to run
  • The Shoop Shoop Song   How bout the way he acts?  Oh no, that’s not the way, and you’re not listening to all I say: If you wanna know if he loves you so, it’s in his kiss
  • Don’t Worry, Be Happy   I used to like this song.  Then I heard it on repeat for about 12 hours straight, thanks to a neighbor, who put it on and then left the house.  Long story.  But it is nice to see Robin Williams’ antics in this video.

I think I’ve done enough damage now.  Enjoy!

(Oh, and the only way I know of to get rid of an ear worm is to hear another one.)
