Earworms…

A bridge, not THE Bridge!

It’s been a holiday weekend here in the UK and as most destinations get packed out (lots of fine weather in cities, mountain areas and at coastal resorts in the last three days), Caroline and tend to stay home and chill out (me) or get out on the bike (Caroline).

Yes, I was working at the day job yesterday, but I’ve also spent a few hours doing online staff training.

As an antidote to the staff training, I finished watching the  box set of Series 4 of The Bridge on Friday night and was reminded of how much of an earworm the theme song Hollow Talk is…

It’s not the only earworm doing the rounds at the moment as one of Roxy Music’s classic album tracks – In Every Dream Home A Heartache – is currently being used in a TV advert at the moment.

Other earworms of note recently have turned up on the shop music system – Friday I’m In Love and In-between Days by The Cure, Enola Gay by OMD and other tracks by The Smiths, New Order and The Stone Roses.

Ironically the only earworm that hasn’t been heard recently has been Kylie Minogue’s Can’t Get You Out Of My Head…

That pic of the bridge at the top of this post was taken in Ronda back in September 2018.
