Product of an Ear Worm.

None of us are immune from the ear-worm. That sometimes annoying little thing that starts as an unrecognisable hum in the back of the brain that nags and nags until maybe a little more of the tune appears and sometimes snatches of the lyrics. It can take an age to identify what it is and may end up being something you don’t even like but it’s with you until it decides otherwise. This is my most recent one. From her 1980 album Breaking Glass here’s Hazel O’Connor with Will You.

From 1975 Nazareth managed to worm it’s way into my brain. It was a surprise as I’m not normally a fan of heavy rock. This Flight Tonight was taken from Joni Mitchell lyrics. No doubt she’ll be on future lists.

From 1971 here’s a gem from the Native American rock band Redbone.

Back to 1967 now to a cover of a Mike Nesmith (Monkees) song. The singer here is a young Linda Ronstadt from the trio The Stone Poneys.

OK, for the last one we come much more up to date LOL. This is 1995 and came from the album Good News From the Next World. I give you Simple Minds who formed in Glasgow in 1977 and gave us the classic Don’t You Forget About Me.

Have a good week all, and keep the Hugs coming. Warm the World.

  1. My son knows a few of the songs that once they get in my head simply refuse to go away for extended time periods. He will laugh when he hears one beginning knowing what’s coming.

    A great selection, David. The Hazel O’Connor song is fantastic, I’ve always liked it, and anything with Linda Ronstadt is fine by me too. I enjoyed the others, too, though I have to say that, even as a rock music lover, I much preferred Joni Mitchell’s original of her song. Have a great weekend 😊

    The thing about Hazel O’Connor’s song is that the lyrics seem to drown in several parts of the song under the music…she should ask “Will You” with a bit more noise :)))) Otherwise love the song. Hugs

  6. Opening reference to ear worms almost scared me off. Glad I stuck around.

    Some of those songs frightened me! The worst song to worm it’s way into my mind was “It’s a Small World” theme song, they play while waiting to get on the ride at Disney World – once it is in your brain it never, ever leaves.

      And now you’ve just put it there again. The song isn’t ringing a bell with me, you can tell I’ve never been to Disney World, but I’m not going to look it up just in case. But, maybe I’ll ask Mike if he knows it later. lol
