I've had Summer Breeze playing in my head today. What a pretty song. Too bad I cant' actually listen to it. Oh well.
It's pretty how they used something that sounds like a toy piano in it. If that's what it was.
Too bad it isn't really summer.

For some reason I've had The Drifters' 'Fools Fall in Love' buzzing around my head all day. Dunno why.

I feel better for sharing

I know this is sort of the question Norman asked at the beginning of this thread, but I am thinking wondering the same thing. Where does music in your head come from? Sometimes, I just have a song pop in my head, seemingly out of no where! One I haven' even heard in years--as far as I know, anyway. They're usually very vivid.
Did something trigger a memory of a particular tune, subconsciously?

A while ago, Oh, Oh It's Magic, just popped into my head and I don't even remember hearing it recently.
I thought about putting this in One Hit Wonders, but looked it up & was suprised to find it's by ELO! I didn't realize that & I'm supposed to be be a fan of theirs...
But then, someone told me the songs by a band called Pilot. Oh well...

Now a song called Livin' It Up Friday Night, by Bell and James has popped into my head. I have no idea how or where it came from.

There must be some way we hear these songs without knowing it. It's subliminal!

I'm afraid it's something we have no control over Dayna. It happened to me this morning when our cat jumped onto the breakfast table. I shouted at her "Hey! you!" (.... then the subliminal thing kicked in) " ... get off of my cloud, don't hang around cos two's a crowd".

Before I could stop myself, I was strutting around the kitchen doing vertical handclaps. Oh dear.

I've been sitting here in complete quiet, with no music on, no TV, but still have music playing in my head. I have music play in my head in so much detail all the time, that when I was trying to think of a song with whistling in it, I ran a few through my head, that I might have heard whistling, & that's how I came up with Dream a Little Dream. This song sure has an interesting tune. I've always loved it. I don't know what you'd call it though. I do this quite a bit. Does anyone else do this?

My ears have been plugged up from bad sinuses, these days, so it's hard to enjoy listening to things anyway.

Right now, in my head, I'm listening to Creedance Clearwater Revival- Lookin' Out My Back Door. I keep wondering, who is he watching out his door & why are they all weird things going on? Is he hallucinating ? Their guitar always sounds good too. :)

'AZDA' by Franco and TPOK Jazz. And all because the managing director of Asda supermarkets was on the Today programme this morning!

Willie Cobbs singing "You Don't Love Me". Though the Tielman Brothers (see Youtube thread) has helped, although through their videos I discovered a Dick Dale version of 'Miserlou' on Youtube and suspect it might be extremely dangerous to listen to it, as far as ear worms go. When I leaned the folkdance to 'Miserlou' as a child and subsequently the melody on the flute, before Dick Dale even, the song got stuck in my head. Oh oh, just talking about it, I'd better go put something else on or I'll spend the rest of the day trading one earworm for going from "you don't love me this I know..." to "could you be loved..." ba ba bop ba ba

Several earworms are caused by Radio 4.

- There's a correspondent called Danny Shore who always inspires me to sing 'the pipes, the pipes are calling' whenever he's mentioned.

- Another correspondent Damien Grammaticus encourages me to add 'was just passing by' inspired by the Court of King Caractacus.

- Hazel Blears has to be sung to the tune of 'Billy Shears' from Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band.

- The end of the financial news inevitably includes the words 'In the city....' causing me to append 'there's a thousand things I want to say to you.'

I'm seeking help....

Something put Moon River by Andy Williams in my head. That song always reminds me of reading Huckleberry Finn.

I've also had I Feel Love by Donna Summer. I'd really love to hear it again. I could get addicted to that song all over again. It gives me such chills. Thanks to Charlie & Des for bringing her up.
