Another Meme

This was sent my way by Dolly at Baby Troll Blog. I am not a great fan of memes in general; however, they are handy for those times when you have nothing on hand to post…

What’s the last popular tune that got stuck in your head?

Oh, my, that is a tough one.

All I do is dream of you the whole night through
With the dawn I still go on and dream of you
You’re every thought, you’re everything
You’re every song I ever sing
Summer, winter, autumn and spring

And were there more than twenty four hours a day
They’d be spent in sweet content, dreaming away
When skies are grey, when skies are blue
Morning, noon and night-time too
All I do is dream of you the whole day through

What popular tunes do you most dread to hear, because they get stuck in your head?

Honestly, it is not the song, but the presentation- all those easy-listening renditions of songs from the 1950’s and 1960’s truly set my teeth on edge. I am quite pleased that this particular atrocity has become rare unto non-existent in this current century. May it remain so. Forever.

When last you were in a commercial establishment, and their “courtesy” music caused a tune to get stuck in your head:

a. Where were you?
b. What was the tune?
c. Did you complete the transaction you’d gone there for, or did you flee screaming and vowing never to return?

Hale Brothers Department Store in San Francisco. I never knew what the song was, but there was a man playing a piano (this being well before the advent of piped in Muzak). Whatever it was he was playing, it stayed with me for days. Nonetheless, I not only completed my business, but returned many times.

When last a television commercial caused a tune to get stuck in your head:

a. What was the commercial for?
b. What was the tune?
c. Did you shrug it off, or vow never again to patronize the establishment?

When I do watch television I generally tune out commercials- I honestly cannot remember a commercial planting a tune in my head.

What is your usual recourse when a tune gets irritatingly, stubbornly, maddeningly stuck in your head?
