Ear worms.

That's what Finn calls blasted songs that get hooked in your head and you end up singing/humming/whistling them all day. I am riddled with this.
It's torture. The paramour was infected first, now I've got it. I've listened to Muse, Radiohead, Johnny Cash, Wham, Vide Cor Meum and Iron and Wine this morning already, but what do I catch myself singing the moment I switch off the music? Girls bloody Aloud. I feel like John Hurt in Alien. Any second now something's going to burst out of my chest and I'll topple over onto my desk. And you know what, it will be a bloody relief.
I've got a VERY busy day today. I can't be infested this way. It's just not...CRICKET!

It's so relentlessly catchy John. And I totally agree on the kissed a girl tune. I'd like to blunderbuss her to death.
Morning Darling, it's too much. He was singing it this morning in the shower and now he's gone to work and I'm stuck with it and I really mean STUCK with it.
BA, I'm almost afraid to click the link, let me make a cuppa tea first.

Girls aloud are constantly in my head, but for completely different reasons.

Yes. Yes it is.

Generally like GA's pop tunes tho - beats the hell outta that generic American R'n'B Chris Brown, Usher, Ne-yo bollix that gets played so much at the moment.

Exorcism, thats what you need.
Listening to a little Tom Waits should do the trick.

Ronnie Tom Waits doesn't sing. He makes strangled cat sounds come out of his mouth, and there is music going on in the background.
Sheepie, agreed.

I don't know if I'm being saved or not, but when I tried to click on the link, YouTube tells me that I'm not allowed to watch that video in my country.

What's the song, so I can go look it up elsewhere myself and possibly get infected too...

I've had Dalila going on in my head all day so far. My, my, my, Delilah. Doodleoodleoodleoodleoo.
Why, why, why, Delilah.

Christ AM, that's pretty bad. Google Girls Aloud -The Promise, listen once, then you may curse the rest of the day too. Not because it's a terrible song, but because it's more infectious than ebola.

I'm after catching it now too. Not as bad as when I caught the I Don't Speak French bug, though. I was laid low for days with that one.

Sheepie. hehe. I do miss the TV ads from Irish and British TV sometimes...

FMC. Thanks. I found a version of the song that I'm allowed to watch. First time listening to it, and it hasn't reached the radio stations here yet, so I think I'm still free from infection for now.

(and I go away singing to myself: the promise I made is starting to fade... lalalala make me love you... lalalala)

hehe

Argh! AM, how could you?
Fiona, that sounds serious. How on Earth did you manage to free yourself of that one?

The song's very catchy, FMC.
I was digging the retro glam hair and makeup even more though. I love the whole cat eye with nude lipstick.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I know Medbh, it's just sucks you in with the entire set up, the sparkly gowns, the awesome hair, the catchy chorus. Damn them.

Listen cuz, I'm an expert at "voices in the head",its the one constant in my life. It's also why I usually wear earplugs connected to my M.P.3, I get to choose the voices, so dilute your Girls Aloud with someting else, anything else, try the Pissycat Drolls.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

Oh no, no no no and thousand time no. Don't even try that one. I spent two weeks singing 'dontcha' under my breath when they first crawled out of whatever petri dish they were created in.

Oh I fell ill to the "I can't speak French but I'll let the funky music do the talking..talking...yeah yeah yeah" thing as well, my god, it's infested me again, shitebags.
Even when I am singing it in my head I feel like dancing.

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and
am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.

net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!
