I didn't do a morning sketch and it made me feel kind of itchy all day.

That said, Stuart can be very annoying with The Birdie Song and even worse, We Built this City on Rock and Roll (too heinous to hyperlink), which has to be one of my all-time least-favourite, but hideously memorable, songs.
So, I am curious what everyone else has as a top musical teeth-grinder.

BUM chi BUM chi bum... it's the percussion bit right after that gets me.

Agony, man.

For the last few weeks we were Prisoners Of "Oliver!" -- our daughter having become addicted to listening to the soundtrack of the Dickens-based Oscar-winner with its chirpy cockneys and bawdy drinking songs and not-very-well-disguised antisemitism. Perfect for kids, in other words.

We finally pulled the "Sorry, it's due back at the library!" trick to get it out of our house and our heads, even though it was not due back for several more days. The worst thing was that we kept passing the earworms back and forth (ooo, nasty image) -- just as I would finally get the songs out of my head, Lisa would walk in humming "Oom Pah Pah" or "You've Got To Pick a Pocket or Two" and the whole thing would start all over again.

Ha ha, that's a good story! I remember watching that film when I was a little too young - projected onto the inner wall of a dark barn sitting on a bale of hay, oddly enough - and it scared the socks off me. I think my mother had to take me away early and spend a lot of time comforting me before I could go to sleep.

That bloody thing from the Muller yogurt adverts
'got my arse, got my ears, got my feet, got my cakehole...'

that bloody thing means i have to dive for the remote and mute/turn over/switch off tv every time now.

This is John Rowley but I keep forgetting my liverjournal account because i'm all gmail blogger and that innit.

Oh, your POOR boyfriend! ;-D There's this Russian singer named Valerie Syutkin who does the equivalent to 'I'm too sexy' in Russian and I had that one in my head for months. It's this mock sexy jazz piece that has this repeating refrain with a pregnant pause, then 'I'm that, wot you want'. I thought it was funny for awhile, then it was just really, really annoying! ;-)

Songs in my head
Sometimes a kid in my class will say they're annoyed because they've got a song 'stuck in their head' so I give them my special cure, which goes something like this:

"Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-dee.
If you are wise, you'll listen to me...."

(Failing that, there's always "Mah Nà Mah Nà")
