Songs ….or as sometimes we know them as ear worms , how many times have we heard a song and ” bang ” just like that it is stuck in our heads and we sing it over and over again in our heads . Sometimes the songs are great numbers we love so it does not matter but mostly they are annoying and they may even be just a little ditty but the fact is once inside the head there they stay for who knows how long . Some of the worst ones as I see it are advertising jingles , some of them are so irritating you just want to shoot someone . the more we try to stop it the more it stays there and it seems that it takes very little to start it off again once we do manage to shake it off .They can last in your head for hours and even sometimes you can go to bed and when you get up ” bingo ” there it is again ..
Amongst the worst songs in my mind are the ones that I consider not real songs as they are just weird , take the so called song Watch Me ..lol I think that’s it’s name it gets stuck in your head so dam quickly it is unreal with it’s lines and some words just repeated and repeated over and over till you get dizzy . Sung by Silento my poor hubby hates it , so if he annoys me once too often I play it to him , lol , he knows he’s in the crap then , and yes I have it to hand all the time lol not because I like it but to play if he is too big a pest .lol.So now all I have to do is mention the phrase ” watch me ” and the speed he shuts up is remarkable would break a speed record I think lol , anyway it’s a last resort so if I do play it he has asked for it , it is self inflicted …lol a bit like me really I am 1 of his self inflicted things too , he is a silly bugger at times …..errr all the time ..lol ..typical male in other words never know when to shut up sometimes , guess that’s why we love em ..
Anyway getting back to these songs , some are just great as I mentioned before but others very annoying and as yet I have not been able to find anyone who knows how to stop them once they start . The other annoying thing is that all the advertising companies now know how easy it is to start these things so try to make sure the jingles attached to their products are the sort that will stick and become ear worms. They achieve this and they then know they have won and that people know their products will get more attention than just an ordinary advert and unfortunately they are right . All you have to do is think back a few years and start thinking about all the little ditties stuck in your head ,everything from cars to food, to drink, to houses , etc, etc. See how easy it is ? Some of the ditties we can still think of are from many years back and yet we still remember them just as though we heard them yesterday for the 1st time , sneaky huh ?
Whoever thought up the idea of making songs into ear worms needs either a good kick up the bum or a medal not sure which yet …lol but whatever he did it and we all get driven nuts by them no matter who we are or how old we are or whatever we do . These ear worms are so annoying but they work so well it does the head in just trying to find ways to ignore them . They may not be alive in that sense of the word but they sure seem to be and they seem to breed as more and more people seem to get affected by them all over the world , so it is very easy to think they are alive in their own right . Anyway even if they do not have real life they sure have a life of their own ..lol So either a pest or a genius the inventor of ear worms should get something …
