Earworm

June 30th 2020

Today I just want to know, if you’re in Manchester will you come to my show? And say “Hey! How you doing?” I want to know if you’re in Manchester will you come to my show? And say “Hey! How you doing?” I want to know if you’re in Manchester will you come to my show? And say “Hey! How you doing?” if you’re in Manchester will you come to my show? And say “Hey! How you doing?”

Annoying, isn’t it?

Those three lines from that one song have been stuck in my head on loop for the last 24 hours. Last night I woke up four times thinking about that fucking song. I don’t think I even get lyrics right, because I just Googled it to write that intro and that’s definitely not how I sing it in my head.

The song is ‘All I Want To Hear You Say’ by Sea Girls and it is repeatedly appearing on my Spotify Daily Mix. Sea Girls keep coming up because I’m on a bit of an indie wave at the moment (pretentious pun intended), and the song keeps sticking in my head, but today it’s driven me insane.

Also, I’ve got this vague memory that the entire Sea Girls band died in a car crash, in which case I’ve had the voice of a dead man in my head all day. I should look that up.

Okay, it wasn’t Sea Girls. That car crash killed Viola Beach. You can see why I’d get confused.

I couldn’t tell you the next line of the song without looking it up. I couldn’t tell you the line previous to the one that has been the backing track to every thought I’ve had in the last day. I couldn’t tell you why that particular line has ingrained itself so deeply within my conscience. I’ve never even been to Manchester and I don’t care how you’re doing.

Also, I’m fairly sure I added the ‘hey’. How you doing? I want to STOPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP IT.

Until tomorrow, All I Want is To Hear You stop.
