Earworms

Post by Maxim Trevelyan »

What exactly is an earworm? Sometimes also known as a brainworm, sticky music, stuck song syndrome, or Involuntary Musical Imagery (IMI) is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing. Basically, that song that gets suck in your head after you hear and it constantly plays in your mind.

Some of the songs that tend to stick in my mind are mostly those that are extremely popular for a short amount of time. Baby Shark, Despacito, Gangnam Style, California Gurls, Don't Stop Believing, Bad Romance and Poker Face. Now, due to the neighbors' kid bellowing it out at all times, Dragostea Din Tei (Numa Numa song) is stuck in my head, which is a shame, because I do like it otherwise.

What is your earworm music? Do you have a specific song or does it come and go with popular music?

I don't know why I dislike this song so much and I why it gets stuck in my head every November and December, but for me, it's Last Christmas by Wham!

Over and over...

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special


In despertation, I try to replace it with another earworm, which annoys me the other 10 months out of the year, but STLL can't top that one: Aqua's Barbie Girl:

Come on, Barbie, let's go party!
ah-ah-ah-yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party!
uu-oooh-u
uu-oooh-u
Come on, Barbie, let's go party!
ah-ah-ah-yeah
Come on, Barbie, let's go party!
uu-oooh-u
uu-oooh-u

Any genre will do, as long as I like it. My earworm will be a lot before the pandemic, such as Baby-Anne Marie was there, Black Eyed Peas, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez-Naturally and many more.
