ABC – Tears Are Not Enough

Middle of the night earworm for no reason at all.

I loved ABC. Falsetto, 80s soul and sequinned jackets, what’s not to like?

Kate Bush – Delius

I am reading a book with a character whose surname is Delius, and obviously this has produced a Kate Bush earworm.

Bill Withers – Kissing My Love

Put your foot on the rock, and pat your foot, don’t stop, put your foot on the rock.

Funky earworm from Bill.

Blossom Dearie – Blossom’s Blues

Not entirely sure why this popped into my head tonight, but that is the way of the earworm.

LET MY PEACH TREE BE.

I’ve just finished watching Devs (with Nick Offerman – you should watch it), and this haunting song has infused my being with calm and weirdness. That discordant chord is everything. Everything.

This was played on the radio yesterday morning and as I was dancing round the bathroom brushing my teeth I was especially tickled by the line “when she wind up she bottom, she goes like a rocket” and I found myself singing the line in my head all day.
