Series Origin

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 (Ohrwurm) is not an uncommon occurrence. This continuing series was born from the concept that misery loves company. Now hear this . . .

“Rhinestone Cowboy”

Michael Lazaro submitted this song. The song was written by American songwriter Larry Weiss and famously recorded by American country music crooner Glen Campbell. It was the title track and lead single off his 1975 platter Rhinestone Cowboy.  It was a hit with both country music fans and the pop music audience.  

“Feel It Still”

Paulett Sutton mentioned this earworm and said it is a “boring, droning song that was overplayed on the radio.” It’s by the American rock group Portugal.The Man. It was co-written by the group and its two producers, Asa Taccone and John Hill. It’s from their 2017 disc, Woodstock

“Funky Town”  

Tim Parsons posted “Funky Town” as an evil earworm. “Funky Town” is a tune recorded by the American disco group called Lipps Inc. It was written by composer and producer Steven Greenberg. The track is off the act’s premiere platter Mouth to Mouth which hit the record racks in 1979.

Bonus Earworm

This edition, our bonus earworm, is the song “That Smell” by the Southern rock group Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was co-written by band members Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant. The song first appeared on the 1977 platter titled Street Survivors. The song was inspired by the band’s use of alcohol, cocaine, and heroin. 

Commercial successes, disco ditties, or crossover hits. You never know what could get stuck in your head. Do you have any annoying earworms?
