Earworm

An earworm is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person’s mind after it is no longer playing. Phrases used to describe an earworm include musical imagery repetitioninvoluntary musical imagery, and stuck song syndrome.

Today the song  that keeps  going  through my head is “It was a very good  year. I especially like the version that  Ray Charles and Frank Sinatra do as a duet. Favorite line is “When I was seventeen it was  a very good year. This was brought on by two  comics in the newspaper this morning. One  was the Baby Blues strip where the  wife tells her husband about their children: “Think of them as reverse cicadas. They’re here for seventeen years and then  they go away” The other  comic  strip was Rhymes with Orange. It’s a picture of  a  cicada with a microphone in his  hand singing the cicada go-to  Karaoke song “When I  was seventeen, it  was a very good  year”.

So….

17 and it was a very good year.

when I was 17 it was a very good year.
