Bothersome earworms and new cars

I have been a disc jockey for many years now. I love playing music and being weird on the radio. It was my dream from the first time I first heard “Markey Baby in the Afternoon” on KFJZ 1270 AM. I was 10. I knew then that being a DJ was my destiny. Or a teacher. Or an astronaut. I’ve always loved music. Sometimes, however, music can just annoy the heck out of you. Like when you get an “earworm.” Now this is no parasite like the things Khan put in the ears of Chekov and the other guy (Why do red shirt guys other than Scottie not have names on Star Trek?) in the “Wrath of Khan.” No, no. These are tunes that get stuck in the brain pan and bounce around for a few hours, days, weeks… I usually don’t mind the occasional earworm, because my ADD kicks in and it will be replaced by another song in a short time. Except when I go to sleep. It is as I lay my puddin’ head down on that soft pillow and attempt to enter dreamland that an earworm is most troubling. The problem is that it is usually a snippet of a song and not the entire song. Not even a complete verse or chorus. Nope. A phrase. That’s it. On eternal loop. Like the point at which there is a scratch in the LP and it keeps skipping back to the same 10 to 20 words. Jarring. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
