Earworms…

I’m going to start publishing my earworms: bits of music (sometimes annoying) that you wake up hearing or that get attached to your brain for a whiale and won’t go away. Want more – look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earworm

Jon and Vangelis – Love is/ One More Time

This is an unusual subconscious choice for my brain to make whilst waking as it’s not my favourite track on the album by far. The thing to do is give it a listen with fresh ears: here goes… http://open.spotify.com/track/1pF9QNHscrThXmzZPDr60A

Jimmy Rushingand Dave Brubeck – Am I Blue 

Waking worm; souch so I had to listen to it as soon as I woke up. Love song from an unusual album. I recommend it if you fancy some really bluesy jazz. Brubeck is reasonably restrained and Rushing’s vocals are just fantastically gritty and Sontag the same time. Enjoy! http://open.spotify.com/track/0BoSV2RFtQYMcXbP2eQ1O8

Com Truise – Awake

Another waking ear worm. Slightly odd this one as it’s not something I would consider an interior monologue soundtrack for dreams. This is a remix of the track by Tycho – also one of my faves. https://soundcloud.com/tycho/awake-com-truise-remix

Prince and the Revolution – Pop Life

I’ve had this one buzzing around in my head for a few days but it was present this morning when I awoke. For some reason it had been changed to “Pup Life” my my curdled brain.
