Make it STOP!

Via Dustbury, I am forced to ponder earworms.

Just to share with the class, here's the one I haven't been able to purge from my noggin for the past three days:
FuturamaWeeknights, 9p/8c
Bureaucrat's Song

Oh geez...

To cure an earworm, simply sing the lyric to "Amazing Grace" to the tune of the opening theme from "Gilligan's Island." The juxtaposition is able to exile any current earworm, but is weird enough to not become one itself.

2 years since I got that damned tune/scene out of my brain.

Now it's back.

Thanks. Thanks a big ol' buttload.

;)

Thunderbolt: stroke of genius. Great song, Tam.

Puh-lease! How can you make a good earworm out of a "song" that has incomprehensible lyrics? The words must be either clear or nonexistent.

I don't know. If you gotta get stuck with an earworm, that's not too bad.

I mean, it could have been something from Prince, or the Jonas Brothers, which naturally you'd have to kill yourself to relieve. This, you can deal with.

One way to cure an earworm is to replace it with another.

What Loki1776 said however I find this to be a more wriggly worm

Thanks to Chris Byrne, I had this stuck in my head for two weeks. Two. Weeks.

My daughter and I were singing Hermes' song on the way to school yesterday. Don't mean nothing, but it's an odd koinkidink.

That is one of my favorite episodes, especially the "Dirty boy. Dirty boy!" scene.

You can take your earworm and stick it, though -- I can't watch it at work. Hah! I win.

In retrospect, "Electric Frankfurter" is a brilliant name for a blog, and I'm sorry I only realized it now.

You all make me realize how lucky I am...when I get an earworm, it usually is something reasonably pleasant...The New Christy Minstrels' "Today" or the third movement of Clapton's "Layla" or Les Cooper's "The Wiggle Wobble".

I think I would go more insane if I had to put up with what you do...

WV: dangla...what those earworms will turn your brain into...
