earworms

They seep inside your heavy brain,

Filling spaces, tubular in shape.

Spreading through like silky eels

Until there is complete immersion

In the echo chamber formed.

I want to scoop it out in one

But nothing reaches quite that far.

Now, I do have a reason for writing about earworms today. I like to write about things that I love or that bother me or just anything that’s going on in the news on any given day.

And quite frankly, I’m fed up with the news at the moment. I feel a little bit flat and even writing is a bit of an effort. So I thought that I had to find something fun as the subject of today’s post.

An earworm is a tune or line from a song that you just can’t get out of your mind. It plays over and over on loop until it starts to drive you a little bit crazy. And I have been suffering with a very fitting earworm today.

Today, of course, is National Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you). When my son was younger he loved the Star Wars Lego computer games and the scene in the club always seemed to be on in the background. Whenever anyone now even mentions Star Wars, that tune that plays is all I can hear.

So, I have had to suffer that tune in my mind for a whole day. Hopefully I will be able to put up with it for another couple of hours and then I won’t need to think of it for another 365 days.

I hope that you have all had a wonderful National Star Wars Day and I leave you with a YouTube clip of the song in question so that you can endure this agony too….

Much Love

    That music reminds me of Alexander’s Ragtime Band… so now you can put words to it. May the Fourth be with you… except here in UK it’s now the Fifth, 🙂
