Though they are not deadly, not poisonous, they can't hurt you in any way (other than being incredibly annoying) According to Spongebob Squarepants, they look like this:
Basically it is a catchy song that repeats in your head OVER and OVER again. They say the only way to get rid of it is to replace it with another.
So. This morning I woke up with a song stuck in my head. While it makes me feel fabulous and want to dance around in a cocktail dress, it is getting rather annoying at this point. What song is it, you ask.
The Girl from Ipanema
This is annoying on two levels.
- One. I wasn't even born at the point it was released (1964) At least my earworm could be current.
- Two. I don't know all the words. She kind of whispers and mumbles. I know the girl is dark and lovely, a guy smiles at her and she walks by without seeing him. Oh...and she is tan.
Now. Go dance around with a cocktail dress on and sing.
