Earworms

I have stolen the term from Shaun Keaveny’s BBC 6 Music Breakfast Show. According to him it comes from German (Ohrwurm) and refers to a tune being stuck in your head. In Dutch oorworm also refers to an insect that in English is called an earwig. I was always terrified of them! Thought they really did crawl into people’s ears… They have nasty pincers! Anyway, I digress and suffice to say I will stick to the musical reference 🙂

I have songs stuck in my head pretty much every day and as I am rediscovering my musical history and new music in the process, I thought it would be good to keep tabs of which song is stuck in my head on any given day:

Just a side note: I will only record a maximum of one song per day; the one that’s stuck in my head at the time of writing.
