    Can anyone explain why, after a weekend listening to the cream of my record collection, focusing on the melodic genius of Duke Pearson, early Sugar Minott and the Dells, I end up humming and whistling 'The Power of Love' by Huey Lewis and the News to myself all day?

    No. Sadly, I cannot explain this. But, I can offer my tried and tested antidote. Sing Kylie's 'I Should Be Lucky' to yourself (only in your head mind, otherwise you may attract a few odd looks). This has the remarkable ability to dislodge any song stuck on loop, without actually getting lodged in your brain itself...

    You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

      OK, Im on the Kylie programme right now. Before I started 'The Power of Love' was starting to morph into 'War' by Edwin Starr:
      'The power of love is a curious thing
      Makes him disabled,bitter and mean'

              Notes:
              The term earworm is the literal English translation of the German word ohrwurm. An earworm is also sometimes called a sticky tune or a cognitive itch. In Brazil they call it chiclete de ouvido, or ear chewing gum.

                Thanks for the link. Kylie didn't work, but earworm research suggests finishing the song in my mind to clear it out of my system. Which means Ive got a miserable session trying to remember how the bridge in a crappy eighties piece of power blues-pop goes. Jesus...
