Every morning your rascally writer rises to greet the day. He stumbles into the bathroom, drops his Justice League jammy bottoms, steps into the shower, and soon finds himself singing Led Zeppelin’s “Dancin’ Days.” It’s not even his favorite Led Zep tune!
Nevertheless, the song remains stuck in his head until he does the only thing he can to clear it out. He sings the entire theme song to either “The Flintstones” or “Gilligan’s Island.” He finds some comfort in the fact that he is not alone. Suffering from earworms is not an uncommon occurrence. This continuing series was born from the concept that misery loves company. Now hear this . . .
“Live And Let Die”
Doug had “Live And Let Die” stuck in his head. This song is the theme for the 1973 James Bond movie of the same name. It was co-written by former Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife Linda and recorded by his band Wings. It was released first as a single in 1973.
“Day By Day”
Collin submitted this famous folk-rock ballad from the popular 1971 Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak musical Godspell. It’s the third tune in the show’s score and it’s also reprised as the official closing number for the 1973 film adaptation. (The video above is from the motion picture.)
“Go To The General”
An embarrassed individual who admits that he “probably watches too much TV thanks to the COVID thing” is plagued by the commercial for General Car Insurance. It co-stars American rapper Snoop Dogg and the animated mascot the General. (Wow, first dog food and now discount car insurance.)
Hello, I Love You”
An anonymous contributor had ”Hello, I Love You” crammed in his cranium. This one was recorded by the American rock group the Doors. It was reportedly written by lead singer Jim Morrison. The song was included on their 1968 platter Waiting for the Sun.
“Super Friends” Theme Song
This is the opening credits and theme song from the 1973 season of the hit Saturday Morning Cartoon “Super Friends.” Written by Hoyt S. Curtin, it featured narration by actor Ted Knight. The very first episode of this animated series first aired on September 8, 1973.
The bonus earworm this edition is the song “Ruby” by the Brit indie rock band, the Kaiser Chiefs. It was written by the entire group and was released as a single in the UK in 2007. The track is off the band’s 2007 sophomore release Yours Truly, Angry Mob.
Huge hits, commercial cuts, or cartoon theme songs. You never know what could get stuck in your head. Do you have any annoying earworms?
