I have been singing a line from a song I heard on the radio in the morning all day (translation):

"They guard wanderers, there are no winners, so fly, although you can never win ahead of gravitation..."

The song is called "Balada o polnych vtakoch" - "The Ballad of Field Birds", it is sung by popular Slovak singer Miroslav Zbirka and I can't get it out of my head! :)

Inside my head...

Actually in my head there isn't a song, but a relentless rhythm/melody pattern from "Oceanic" by Vangelis at the moment. Just because I listened the entire album yesterday evening with my Mum just to relax...

A Dutch children's song, praising someone who has done something good. :mrgreen: That's because I just got back from another day of teaching 5-year-olds and well, we do a lot of singing... 8)

I nearly always have a song well and truely stuck in my head - just ask anyone who sits near me in school :roll: :lol:

This morning it was 'Does Your Mother Know' and 'One of Us' by ABBA. I used to be crazy about them, before I discovered Clannad. Did anyone see that reunion thing on British TV the other night? I really enjoyed that :wink:
Expect for the fact that I woke up this morning singing 'One Man One Woman' - it's leathal, and I haven't listened to ABBA in ages!
Right now all I have in my head is 'Flora's Secret' of Enya's which I am playing.
Anyway, gotta go; but you can Definitly expect more from me on this topic :mrgreen:

At the moment, I have quite a few Under Byen songs revolving in my head, one replacing the other, and then an occasional Faye Wong comes in to play... And, for some strange reason, "Tempation" by Heaven 17 and "People Everyday" by Arrested Development (from the oddly named album "3 Years 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life of...").

I just love that song in the Norland Wind version. And I love the sound of Ian Melrose's voice :D (and of his guitar playing by the way :mrgreen: )

I have a song in my head and that's sooo annoying if you have that in your head :P it's called 'The Egg Song'
It goes like this:

Image

Eggs, get your eggs here
Fresh and white eggs are here!


Wiggle jiggle, yellow middle
That's the best of what you are
(I love you egg!)

White and tender, surround the center
Cozy, Sitting in a crackling shell
(I love you!)

Vitamins, minerals, proteins
(Oodle, Doodle!)

Popular and perfect and
So complete in every way!
(I love you egg, egg!)

Come into my tummy, oh
So very yummy

Crack, crack, crack
Chip a chip away your shell and come to me
(Get your eggs!)

I love you (fresh egg)
I love you (white eggs)
Really, really love you so
(Eggs, eggs, fresh eggs!)

Eggs, I really love you like the sky above
(Eggs are the best!)

I love you(fresh egg)
I love you(white eggs)
Really, really love you so
(Eggs, eggs, fresh eggs!)

365 days
I really love you so!
I really love you so!

Yummy!


Annoying!! Even my father is humbling it right now :mrgreen:

***medley of ABBA tunes playing in my head***

Now you've done it! :mrgreen:

I still listen to them occasionally, but these days I'm more interested in their album cuts rather than their hit singles. Being a whistleplayer, I'm partial to tunes like "Fernando" and "Move On", and the very Celtic-sounding "Arrival".

Remember the movie "Dirty Dancing"...watched it twice over the weekend and the songs just kept popping into my brain. Now this week, without even realizing it, I've been humming and whistling "Dare You To Move". It's like a stuck record running through my brain... :shock: ...at least it's not that egg song Marlies has running through her head :lol:

From http://www.wordspy.com/words/earworm.asp

earworm (EER.wurm) n. A song or tune that repeats over and over inside a person's head. Also: ear-worm, ear worm.


Example Citation:
"I couldn't get the song out of my head. It's like a broken record," Clark said Thursday while shopping at the Galleria at Tyler mall in Riverside. "I keep humming it, and you know, I don't even like Prince's music."

Her experience reflects a phenomenon shared by the vast majority of people, according to an ongoing study at the University of Cincinnati. Nearly everybody has been mentally tortured at one point in their lives by an "earworm" — a tune that keeps repeating itself over and over in their heads.

The research also indicates that people who get the most earworms tend to listen to music frequently and have neurotic habits, such as biting pencils or tapping fingers.
