Just for you Tommie...



We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown...

We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so.


ahem.. enters gimli on air synth....
do do do doooooo
do do do do dooooo
do do do dooooo
do do do do doooooooooo


ermm.. ok.. maybe that didnt work so well..
Heres some more;
"Im to sexy for my pants to sexy for my shirt..."
God forgive me for that.
Cat Smiling Smilie "meow, meow, meow meow, meow" I have a love/hate thing going with the Meow Mix commercial.

It is the same way with the Cat Chow one. "Chow chow chow"

Or Kibbles and bits, Kibbles and bits, i am going to get me some kibbles and bits. lol

sorry I just had to add those

There is also the Dr. Pepper commercial.
Dr Pepper what`s the worst that can happen? Big Laugh Smilie

How about:

"Iknow a song that`ll get on ya nerves get on ya nerves get on ya nerves.e.t.c................."

HUM........ What else? Cry me a river is another one, I can`t stop singing that. I love that song though so it doesn`t matter really.

The thing that really, really annoys me, is when I`m doing tests and I start singing a song when I`m trying to concentrate. Mad Smilie
"Ear Worms," Grondy???

I must admit to opening this thread with a little trepidation as to what gross material was going to be in it.
Val, when i saw this, i thought the same thing-

"i know a song that gets on everybody's nerves everybody's nerves everybody's nerves, i know a song that gets on everybody's nerves and it kinda goes like this i know a song that ,,, "

"This is the song that never ends, it goes on and on , my friends, some people started singing it not knowing what it was and just continue singing it forever just because it is the song that never end, and it goes on and on,,,"

LOL! Though I gotta admit that I kinda like it.....when I am using it to annoy others. Tongue Smilie
It's funny, sometimes I'll wake up in the morning with this dumb little tune going through my head, and for the life of me I don't know where it came from.
Soory, I can`t back you up on that one! Big Laugh Smilie If you catch my drift.
Recently, I've had the Teddy Bears' Picnic stuck in my head, for some reason. Big Laugh Smilie
I don't know that tune but it sounds funny!! Big Laugh Smilie

I`ve just seen Maid in Manhatten down at the pics and I have an ear worm now. My mates and I have been singing;

'I`m coming up, I want the world to know, got to let it show...............e.t.c.'

We were looking like fools bc we were singing out loud quite loudly. I bet you`re thinking I`m glad I wasn`t with them. Big Laugh Smilie
I just have to click it Grondmaster, I just have to click it. Shocked Smilie
All my mates are now in the process of singing Cry Me A River at the moment. I love that song, I also love Orlando and Justin. I like the song Bueatiful alot as well.
Here is another ear worm for you.

Warning: You probably shouldn't click "yes" on the ancillary window that comes with this site, just click on "No".
That one isn't near as bad as 'Teddy Bears' Picnic' Big Laugh Smilie
I have had the wizard of Oz song, "Ding, Dong, the witch is dead, which old witch? the wicked witch! Ding dong the wicked witch is dead!", in my head for about 2 years. 2 YEARS! I havent seen the Wizard of Oz in about 5 and a half years! talk about Ear Worm.
Let us see if this one will work: Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Ding Dong the Witch is Dead!

Grondy, thats scary *hides* i hate that song! AHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *runs away*
Ok Grondy, you link for the little tea pot had several other songs on it too. I used to work in a preschool and the songs:
The wheels on the Bus
The Clean up Song
and any of the Barney songs really were Ear Worms there. I got really sick of all of them.

At nap time, I ended up getting classical music cd's to play so the kids would rest and i could get these others out of my mind. After school, in the car I would turn my radio on any Rock station and just blast it for the 30-45 minute drive home. Poor Robbie would beg me to turn the music down just a touch. Some times I would, but other times. . . NOT. lol Mean ole Mommy. heheheheheeee
Okay, "I'm Looking Over, a Four Leaf Clover" is another good ear worm. I think I was nine or ten when I first learned to sing it after hearing it on the radio.

Lol, sorry, just had to add my "ear cootie" Tongue Smilie
Never thought I`d say this but that song actually makes sence! Big Laugh Smilie (j/k)
And I'd like to add:

* Mission Impossible theme
* Love and Marriage (Sinatra, that's right)
* Flinstone's theme
* Iris (Goo Goo Dolls, if I remember rightly. I always seem to come up with the words: well I don't want the world to see me, 'cause I don't think that they'd understand, etc)
* Pink Panther theme
* I just can't get you out of my head (Kylie Minoque, if that is the one?)
* In Zaire
* Parachute (Something Happens, and this just happens to be a great song)
* Jump! for my love
* Final Countdown
* and my last one's a Dutch song, for those of you who speak Dutch: Dit is de allereerste keer! (tu dum, tu dum, tu dum, tu dumdumdum Animated Wink Smilie ) It keeps on lingering in my head, and it's terrible! I'll see if I can find a link to it.
"Ding, Dong, the witch is dead, which old witch? the wicked witch! Ding dong the wicked witch is dead!"

Am I helping Delidia?
awww. I thought it said Eat Worms.. Was hoping for a tequilla party!
Well Gimli you just gave me an ear worm: 'Tequilla' I think I'm hearing Herb Alpert and the TJ Brass's version, but I may be wrong.

Does anyone have a link to the tune so we can share the wealth? Good and Evil Smilie Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
Nooo!!! Oh my God those songs drive me crazy. I only have to read "it's a small world after all..." and BANG! song in my head for three days and more. Exploding Head Smilie

Glad to say I don't know any other ear worms. Not for the moment, but with the radio turned on I'm bound to come across one.
See! Told you! Nick Carter ( Exploding Head Smilie ) with I got you just on the radio. Aaaaaaaaarghhh!!! Exploding Head Smilie

And that Teddy Bear one sure is a pain in the you-know-what as well. Big Laugh Smilie
THE BIG SHOE DANCE!!!!!

naaaa naaaa na na na naaa naaa naaaaaa naaa naaa na na na naaaa naaaa

Pretty much anything by Def Leppard gets stuck in my head and drives me insane for days on end...

"Take the bottle, shake it up, break the bubble, break it up... Pour some sugar on me! Ooooh in the name of love..."

Well the one thing that gets in my mind and I just can't get rid of is that typical american commercial line(now please no offense...I just find it very american) "BUY IT TODAY"
I hate the way they stress "to-daaayy" Very Sad Smilie
Funny enough I found an article about Ear Worms, so I thought I'd share it. Kinda interesting...

No. 1 Song That Gets Stuck In Our Heads

3. Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out?"
2. Chili's restaurant jingle about Baby Back Ribs
1. Other
When University of Cincinnati researchers tried to find out what song gets stuck in our heads the most, the non-answer they came up with was quite revealing: Other. As in, there were way too many titles for a single poll to tally. Almost all of us suffer through this mental torture of having a song stuck on replay in our brains, repeating itself over and over and over until we want to just scream. If this happens to you frequently, we're very sorry to inform you that those University of Cincinnati researchers have determined you have slightly neurotic tendencies. Either that or you just enjoy music and listen to it often. (Personally, we're opting for the second choice.)

Which songs get stuck? Kellaris explained to Reuters that when we get a song stuck in our heads, it's usually the first or last song we heard in a specific situation, such as the song playing on the clock radio alarm or the song on the car radio when we turned off the ignition. "Just about anything can get stuck in people's heads," Kellaris told Reuters. "We each have our personal demonic tunes that get stuck in our heads, I guess."

But stuck songs, which the Germans call "earworm," tend to have these features in common:
--They are relatively simple.
--They are repetitive.
--They contain an element that surprises the listener, such as an interrupted pattern or something that violates expectations of what comes next.
--The most common culprits are songs with lyrics.
--They stay stuck in our heads for a few hours on average.
So what do you do to erase the stuck song from your brain? Kellaris advises you not to worry about it. (If you take him up on his advice, just don't listen to Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" or you're sure to just trade one stuck song for another.) Other tips include listening to different music or distracting yourself with another activity. You can also try singing the entire song--and not just the snippet that's stuck in your head--even if you can't quite remember all the lyrics. There's even a folklore cure: Chew on cinnamon sticks.

Kinda goofy huh? Chew on cinnamon sticks? Who came up with that?!?
Got another one. It's from a birthday card. The card is pretty funny, but the song is such an earworm!! Haven't heard it for about a week now, but you only have to hear it (or when you know it, thinking about it is enough) once, and it's engraved in your head. Big Laugh Smilie

ARRRGGGHH!! I hate that jingle! It makes me want to throw my radio out the window!
Can't think of any jingles that you will know...but I do know that the latest song from J-lo feat LL is a terrible ear worm to have! The woman can't sing and the consept of the song is just awful......why do these awful songs stick in your ear and pop up when you are doing something important? Very Mad Smilie
It was a dark and stormy night... Lighening Smilie Well, I can't rememder if that was the case, but anyway: I had finally managed to get into bed, too late as usual. Lying there, waiting for happy dreams to come, I started to hear a low sound, from inside my head. It grew quickly louder, until...

THE WHOLE room was echoing with Shanaya(or somfing) Twain, "I'm gonna get you".!! Shocked Smilie

I didn't like that one much before, and far less sneaking up on me like that! Paranoid Smilie After half an hour of torment, I snapped, bounced out of bed and turned on the TV. Ahhh, the relief... Wiggle Smilie
Hahahaha! She did that to me 2! Big Laugh Smilie
"When the moon hits the sky like a big pizza pie, that amore " Try having that stuck in your head!
I like that song GrevBukMcJern!

Another song that will stick is that tune from "The Sound of Music" the "Do Re Mi Fa So La Te Do" song!!
That was a good movie. I disagree on th Do yada yada song. The first song..."The hills are alive...with the Sound of Music..." That one get stick in my head. it is sooo annoying.

The hills are alive...with the sound of music...
oops. Big Smile Smilie
Just thought I'd give you all my favourite ear-worm (well this should work for everyone over a certain age, as they say)

M'Nah M'Nah
HUH???
HUH???
