Earworm!!!

I woke up this morning, feeling terribly chirpy after having had an extremely roller coaster week. ....my lil one coming down with bronchitis and still wanting to live his life like in a swing....ups and downs....having been sent off to school today...saw me smiling, singing and smiling all over again....(I know, if one were to see me...they would have surely marked me up for admissions to NIMHANS...for the eternal foodies the basket of fruits to entice them )

But I had a reason to smile..and so I did. But I didn't stop at that....I was listening to the FM station on radio and was humming along..Songs played and the RJ's grated on my ears quite a bit... ( sometimes they can get a lil jarring...my apologies to all the RJ's I know of :( ..) and then I went about my work....soon realised, I was humming something...and tried to listen to myself clearly...and oh my GOD!!! What was that???? I was singing " Tippugondahallinalli neeru kaali aiytho....""" a kannada song (translated it means the waters in the Tippugondanahalli reservoir, a main source of drinking water, is now empty)., from the movie 'Sixer'..(After a lot of googling and pestering people, my friend Kiran got it for me!!!!!) and it was like yeeeoww....whats this I'm singing...and it refuses to let go of me....i'm stuck with it...and i'm not able to shake it off.....


Reminded me of a time when the song....(so terrified now to even type it out...) "Supercalifragilistic expialidocious" used to keep buzzing around in my ear 24/7. I keep wondering why I always get stuck with songs, with such ridiculous lyrics, or sometimes such horrid tunes...that it makes me go beet red half the time...can't even plaster my mouth to stop it...cos its in my mind and not being sung aloud....*sob sob*

Have you ever been terrorized by such phenomena???? I guess only the victim of this thing called "earworm" will understand...or do I want myself to jump out and start dancing to these tunes...nooooooo


I want those soft mushy numbers, or even the "move your body baby!! from the movie "Johny Gaddar", or even Dhoom Machale, Goan trance......but not this dumb song....anything better will do...

And while i'm supposed to be praying for my son, Cos he's going for a very important team selection tomorrow...here I am singing Tippugonda......help!!!!!

U can listen to it here

Okay, now it is stuck in my head! Whenever the Indian films come on tv...we watch. We are fascinated by the clothing, the dancing, all the attractive people! ;)

Good luck to your son, I hope he makes it!
