Silly Saturdays: Earworm the home-wrecker !


It must have happened to you many times, you listen to a song and it keeps playing in your head throughout the day or if you are like me even for days. Being a mum now the song that usually runs in my head these days is “I love you, you love me, and we’re a happy family”.  This is currently my favourite, I sing this even when I am working out at the gym.  During my initial motherhood days “Wheels of the bus goes round and round” was so deeply wired that I think I could have even mumbled the song my sleep.

This is called earworm as described by the urban dictionary “A song that sticks in your mind, and will not leave no matter how much you try”.


And just as I got dressed today to head out with my hubby here is the conversation we had:

Me: How do I look?
Hubby: He looks at me then goes back to doing what he was busy with and says “Auntyji Auntyji get up and dance!”
Me: Stare at him with a big questions mark look on my face.
Hubby: Oh you look lovely, love the salwar-kameez! Sorry I heard that song this morning and it’s been running non-stop in my head.

Now the big question is which part of the answer should I believe in first or the second one! 

P.S. – To be fair to him, it me who made him listen this song on MTV’s unplugged featuring Ash King!

  10. Hi Sangeeta,

    Quite true, even I have many songs which are 'ear worms' for me. I keep listening for days, weeks, or maybe even years. Is that the case with you?
    Nice post, loved it.

    Regards

    Jay

  14. Earworm! wow, thanks for that word, did not know about it. Yes I do have a lot of earworms at times. Wheels on the bus was the household favourite 2 years ago. At present it is the disastrous "Gangam style"....eagerly awaiting the change.
