Writer's Block: The Wrath of Ohrwurm

German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head?


I can't think of an earworm that I hate offhand and most songs/tracks that I hate are easily replaced as earworms by listening to something that I love a few times on iTunes or the iPhone/Pod. My current earworm is one that I am actively cultivating by singing it over and over again in my mind; Eric Idle's "Always look on the bright side of life", which was chosen by my step-dad to be played at his funeral on Tuesday. I have always liked Monty Python and this track is perfect to remember my step-dad by.

I have a CD of ripped MP3s from Holly's favourite shows that I play for her in the car. Getting stuck at work with something like The Backyardigans singing "A Pirate Goes Argh!" is about as annoying as it gets..... until you spend the entire day humming "Rubber Duck" by Bert.
