What To Do With An Earworm

I'm out of the loop.

This is pretty much always true.

So last week, I told you guys about that Mother, Mother song....Hayloft, you know the one.  (Or maybe you don't, in which case, you should really check it out....)  Anyways, I can't seem to get this song out of my head.  Apparently there is a whole website dedicated to this very phenomenon of having a song stuck in your head.  You can check it out here. (

So I figured I'd give it a try, because, perhaps I'd find another catchy tune, but no,
instead I end up with some song called "My Sexy Humps Are Back."  WTF...Seriously, that is exactly what I thought.   I like to think that I'm rather up to speed on my musical pop trivia crap, but I have no clue what this song is supposed to be.  ...But, since I am so adventurous (ha ha), I decide to have a little listen. 

Basically it's every crappy song on the charts from 2004 mashed together.  So I decide to pick a new one...nope, it won't let me.  I must listen to this sexy humps garbage again.  I click on "new song" again.  no dice.  It's like the shitty music gods are striking me with lightening.  In fact, I pressed the damn button 15 times (and counting.)  It won't let me go. 

Now it dawns on me that its probably some sort of alien infused message thing.  Maybe some sort of mind control brought on by the Obama administration...either that or Brian Mulroney...never mind, I doubt that either of them are that smart.  So back to the alien theory I go. 

Finally....after attempt 32 (ish....with an emphasis on the ish...because lets face it....I quit counting after the fifth try.)  It lets me switch tunes....

Achy Breaky Heart.

Yeah, I think I'll listen to the Hayloft song again.

oh, and for those of you who thought an earworm was an actual's just a song stuck in your head.

What song did give you?


  1. La Macarena LOL!

    It works for me if I click the new song button.

  2. See, now, I've got that Fergie song stuck in my head "My Humps" or something like that because of you and the "My Sexy Humps Are Back"...just the sight of the word hump has me singing "My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump..." Ugh...
    Sorry you had to listen to it 50 times or so. I would have been a little thrilled with Achy Breaky Heart..that guy has great hair now!

  3. "Hey ya, Whip It."

    How suiting.......

    The next song, "Under Pressure."

    Again, how suiting.
