I get this too... it's usually a theme or melody from what I last heard or practised.

I shudder a bit imagining these as music worms....
just to change the subject for a moment. i grow a few tomatoes and was absolutely horrified to see this creature on one of my plants. green hornworm

Could any more horrifying create be created? It is the perfect color, is difficult to see on the tomato plants, the daughter cried when i cut one in 1/2 and she had to keep the remaining 5 in a box for the nieces and nephews to play with later on duringthe day. This is what i think of when i hear the term ear worm now.


I have Sibelius's Finlandia playing now on the brainpod. a vast improvement. I found a delightful flashmob presentation so you can hear it.. what a piece of music.

I got to accompany my 'older' Italian choir this last Sunday for this piece. They are such a cute choir... so elderly, so dedicated. soooo loud

One of the worst cases for me is when it is one of my own unfinished compositions because if I like how it develops I have to write it down because I am afraid to forget it if I don't, and sometimes this happens in the middle of the night when I am trying to fall asleep.... smokin

Seattle's KING-FM is playing the Sibelius 5th symphony, long a work which has been 'stuck in my head'.

Usually I hear music I heard last, often the muzak from the supermarket or so.

In the morning I usually hear the piano music I'm practicing.

Sometimes something pops from nowhere. Then I look it up on youtube sometimes. I just had that with Rachel Stevens, Sweet Dreams

How odd, the same thing happened to me when I tried it but when I typed the URL in another tab it went to the video. I've never seen that happen before.

why? Does this happen to anyone else?

sometimes all goes well and i hear what i want to be playing 'on the brainpod' as i call it. I am trying to switch to the Goldberg Variations.. but Hallelujah - Hallelujah drones on.

aaarrrggh


...and here I was thinking that I was the only one who had this happen to them. I'd like to take the 'not choosing' a step further. Sometimes a piece comes into my head that I haven't heard for maybe two or three years. It just comes, totally unsolicited, out of nowhere and I can't explain why. Does this happen to anyone else?

This morning I woke up with a beautiful (new) melody in my head. I was still half asleep, not having slept much (probably about 2-3 hours) and didn't write it down. Now it's gone. cry

well hurray..

i found my Rach music to the Theme of Chopin (Opus 22) and Corelli variations (Opus 24)..

playing thru them for a while got me on a whole new track.

YES!

finally, the drone of hallelujah was getting me down... not that the Corelli variations will be better (they will).

I never heard that Lambchop ditty - too old I guess. I listened to it on youtube - gee, no worse than "It's a Small World After All" - one trip thru the Disney place and I never wanted to hear it again.

I used to think I had music playing in my head 24/7 and I loved it, but then I noticed it stops when I go to work. Maybe I need to find a new job?

Right now, I have Chopin etude 10/8 humming along.


Best regards,

Deborah

I have this one stuck in my head at the moment after hearing it on tv:

Trailers for sale or rent
Rooms to let...fifty cents.
No phone, no pool, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Ah, but..two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve four-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means
King of the road.

For me, the cure for being infected by a tune that drives me crazy is to listen to something else. Works every time.
