    Ever get a song stuck in your head? I've has To France by Mike Oldfield in my ear for almost 3 days now.



    What earthworms have you had recently? What do you do to cure them?

    Incidentally, I've had this one by Mike Oldfield stuck in my head, mainly because it is story of my life:

    At least Tubular Bells isn't the story of your life (better known as the theme to the exorcist)

    Then I will certainly NOT click on your link!

    And yes. For reasons that I have not yet managed to figure out, Billie Eilish's music is amazingly persistently stuck in my head. And it's not just one song, it's 3 or 4 of them. I happened to watch her show on Austin City Limits a while back (the TV segment, not the outdoor concert), and was curious about some of the accompanying videos (she almost always has one) and also curious about her 'acoustic' versions (which she also has done a number of). Mostly, because I find the differences interesting and exceptionally well done.

    But unlike other artists I've been similarly curious about, for some reason her music seems to be exceptionally "addictive", or "sticky". And I find myself waking up in the morning with one or another of her songs playing in my mind. And then at work while I'm busy doing something, or whenever. And this has been going on for days, now. Even as I type this I'm thinking I'd like to look up some more of those acoustic versions, or maybe another live concert.

    There is something mesmerizing about her music. Dunno why.

    Here is an acoustic version of a song she wrote about someone who had been copying her online.



    But this is the one that really sticks in my head ... watch at your own risk! :) And play it LOUD!

    I've had this for some time now, no idea why, it's not really my normal taste in music.

    I often have that and a few other of their songs in my head. My mom loves the Animals, and I ended up growing fond of them when I was little.

    Thanks. Now instead of To France, since I mentioned TB, I have Caveman stuck in my head now, which is worse. I blame you

    Well, it's not live NOW. But it was live when it was video recorded. She even body-serfs the audience at the end.

    Here is the same song from her Austin City Limits show ... lots of talk in the beginning because she likes to play with the audience. But the sound is good on this. A lot of her lives songs are hard to hear because the audiences are so loud. But ACL has a lot of experience recording live shows so they handle the noise well.

    I'm afraid to view any of the videos for fear of them getting stuck in my ear. :eek:

    The Bach one is a pleasant earworm to have.

    When I'm singing (obviously not at the moment, thanks to the virus) , I normally find the earworm is the penultimate thing I've sung. I've no idea why this should be so.

    I won't link to mine, too esoteric for most folks, but they are (for those who'd care to Google) "Lascia ch'io pianga" or "Ombra mai fu" by Handel (arias), or the Benedictus from Karl Jenkins’ “The Armed Man: a Mass for Peace,” which is a wonderful choral work,

    By the way, “A Mass for Peace” might be a good thing for us all to listen to at the moment – and it is, especially the Benedictus, glorious music.
