    Last night I had ‘Back once again with the renegade master’ (may not be actual title), the other week I had cest la vie by Bewitched.(Arrrrgghh!)

    In both cases I have no idea why..

    What have you had?

    ‘Maybe’ from the Annie musical..

    ‘Bet you he reads.
    Bet you she sews.
    Maybe she’s made me a closet of clothes.’

    I get musicals all the time, another favourite is Paint Your Wagon

    ‘Away out here they’ve got a name for rain and wind and fire. The rain is Tess, the fire’s Joe. They call the wind Maria.’

    Ooh yes – I love a good musical..” Wandering star” is another fave cycling song.

    I really, really have no idea why but riding to work I had

    I noticed the towel rail warm for the first time this year last week. As a result my ride to work ear worm was the theme from Beverly Hills Cop.

    A rather nasty mix of “The black parade” (My Chemical Romance) and ” I have seen the golden sunshine” (School type hymn)

    A medley of all of the above rattling round my head for the rest of the day. Thanks a lot.

    At least I now know what an “ear worm” is. When I saw the thread title I was thinking along the lines of The Wrath of Khan (original) type monsters crawling into your ears on a ride!

    Blooming’ “Take 5” by Dave Brubeck, thanks to it being used as the intro music for a play I was in last week.
    Love the Ram Jam vid by the way – never seen that!

    The most annoying thing about ear worms is I often get just a line or a short phrase of a song…same words going round and round and round…argghhh

    Whenever the weather is bad, i have a habit of singing Club Tropicana, in February, there was something about cycling home in a blizzard to “Club Tropicana, drinks are free, burning sunshine….”

    Last ride it was Bankrobber by the Clash.
    Can’t remember why. Got home and played it, sounded good.

    “Club Tropicana, drinks are free, burning sunshine….”

    Pretty sure the lyric is “fun and sunshine”

    Not sure what my last one was, can’t have been that annoying.

    Agadoo. Just as I set off the other day some sadistic monster of a man was singing it to his little kid, and then the damn thing was stuck in my head for the next three hours. Horrific.

    Let me know when you’re heading out next….

    ‘Put a chicken on your head…’

    Aside from Black Betty, which at least helps my cadence, the worst one recently was ‘La Vida Loca’ by Ricky Martin for about two hours.

    Not bike riding but whilst surfing at Saunton a couple of weeks ago I had Salt-N-Pepa – Let’s Talk About Sex in my head for a good couple of hours.

    Every so often I get “scream if you wanna go faster” by gerry hellibobble. But sung by lemmy. Usually leads to a good ride.

    “My uncle Billy had a 10 foot willy…”

    That went round my head for 2 days whilst cycling in Germany at the start of the month.

    Trepanation is not all its cracked up to be.

    Last couple of weeks it’s been Black Eyed Dog.
    Get the guitar part running around first, then find myself singing this bit:

    I’m growing old and I wanna go home
    I’m growing old and I don’t wanna know
    I’m growing old and I wanna go home.

    I blame the dark mornings.

    I had Bouncy Feeling by Eggy as my lad was playing it as I left the house, found it on you tube and played it on my headphones in order to get rid.

    Toto “Africa” for 80 miles after my cousin mentioned it….. The video hasn’t aged well and i kept getting flashes of it on a 20% climb. Probably just hallucinations
