Earworm = a song that gets stuck in your head and won't go away.

This is a humourous response to Beverly's request for mantras - I frequently to try to get a mantra going and instead end up humming something like Coca Cabana for an hour.

The worst one for me will get anyone who's lived in my province in the past two years - "I Wanna Hippopotamus for Christmas." A local cell phone company used it in an ad in the 2005 holiday season and it became one of those wierd pop culture things where the hippo in the ad became a local celebrity and everyone had the darned song stuck in their head.

On long rides it tends to start going around and around in my brain, sometimes for hours.

Hey John, if I was thoroughly evil I'd post the lyrics here. As I'm only quasi-evil, I'll post a link to them: http://www.minibite.com/christmas/hippo.htm. Click on it at your own peril!

I wasn't going to post this 'cause it's a bit embarasing, but everytime I run past my church the song "Onward Christian Soldiers" comes into my mind and it sticks. At least I can keep a beat with that song! I just laugh at myself because as soon as I see the church that song comes to my head!! Oh well...

KEEP MOVING & humming...

A little ditty, 'bout Jack and Diaaaanne, two american kids growin up, in the heart land.

Hahahahaha - - Earworm, this is too much. When I back pack we could be on the trail for hours, and this freaking song just will not get out of my head.

There is NOOOOOO way I am clicking on the link above. I am treating it like a virus.
