|Kansas in their heyday|
|Elton and Kiki|
In case you don't know the song—or need a refresher—here is a link to just the audio (you really only need to listen to the opening note). I didn't link to the video because I didn't see any reason to traumatize you all with the knighted one's hideous plaid jacket—once you've seen it you can't unsee it. You can thank me later. (Ironic side-note: both of the songs I have mentioned here are from the same year. There's probably a deeper connection there, but I am reluctant to attempt to uncover it.)
And here, for easy reference, is the sound of a dial tone:

So....any particularly memorable earworm experiences you would like to share? Any other methods for regaining your sanity after an especially stubborn hook gets lodged in your brain? Want to take me to task for hating on Don't Go Breaking My Heart or for planting one of these tunes in your head with this piece? (If it's any consolation, the Kansas song is now gone...but Styx has replaced it.) Let me know in the comment area!
And just FYI: Come Sail Away is from 1977. There must be something about that era. Perhaps a future blog piece awaits.
