TWQ: Catchy Tunes & Ultimate Blog Party

TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks about those tunes you keep humming:

What tunes have you heard took ages to get out of your head as you found you were humming them constantly?

My answer is:

Recently, I found this favourite of mine again on YouTube. As a result, it's been in my head ever since. It's Space singing 'Female Of The Species'



Another favourite has always been Don McLean's version of 'American Pie'.

Now it's over to you...

But before you go...

Ultimate Blog Party



Take a look at the 'Ultimate Blog Party' (see sidebar) that is being run from the 2nd until the 9th March. It's a massive party with many, many people attending. There are prizes galore at the end of it all. The event is being organised by 5 Minutes For Mom. Though mainly women are there, I've been informed that all are welcome. As a result, I have my tuxedo on, and am going to do a lot of circulating. Perhaps I should bring a bottle of Klingon bloodwine?

A very warm welcome to all my new visitors from the party. Pull up a seat. Data will serve you. I've told Seven of Nine you are not to be assimilated.

Get yourself along there, sign the Mr Linky and help make it even bigger!

The two Ruby's: 'Don't take your love to town' and 'Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby!' by a new group ?TlgerChief?
Michele says Good Morning!

Leslie said...

Glad you joined us!
Vertigo by U2 is the current song I cannot get out of my head. Blame it on SingStar! ;)

Mr. Althouse said...

American Pie is a classic - and one of my all time favorites. There's no end to the meaning that can be found in those lyrics. I kinda cheated over at Michele's... I was responding to Utenzi but you got in ahead of me, so it's only fair...

Michele sent me.

Well, I haven't heard it in FOREVER until Thursday night, but I heard Alabama's "Dixieland Delight" and I've been singing / humming it ever since.

rashbre said...

The tune in my head at the moment is "Hunting for Witches" by Bloc Party.

I'm not sure why, but it keeps swirling around. And its not exactly a great classic like some of the others mentioned!

And before that it was something called "Nineteen, you're only Nineteen, for Gods sake..." by the Long Blondes.

I'll see if I get time to try this party you mention!

best, and here via Michele!

Fun blog, nice pictures- I love Star Trek! I don't know if I'll partake of the blood wine though. I think I'll stick with prune juice!

Darth Inferna said...

Farewell Myth - Made in Mexico

Guitar Hero ruined me on that one.

Werewolves in London - Warren Zevon.

Been running in my head the past two days.

Another long runner is-

Twisted Nerve - Bernard Herrmann

Kill Bill had that song running through my head for months.

I'm here for the party!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - but I must say it was a bit embarrassing to have you stop in on such a post! I'm not normally 'venting' as I was on that one. :)

My Dear Uncle Bert is a regular poster from England on my blog. He's actually become a dear friend.

Thanks for stopping in! :)

The Mistress of the Dark said...

Ohio Express Yummy Yummy Yummy and I hate that song.

Three Dog Night - Shambala

The Moody Blues - Vintage Wine, Don't Need A Reindeer and Lovely To See You.

Elvis Costello - Monkey To Man

Hanson - Sure About It (Please don't tell anyone)

Have a great weekend!

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

lately i'm into the new justin timberlake/nelly furtato song, can't hear enough of it.
you're a very dashing gent in your tux:)

Carmi said...

I'm afraid if I mention a specific tune, it'll stay in my brain for the next 72 hours. So I'll stay quiet, and hope that nothing leaks into my brain like the masrhmallow guy did in Ghotsbusters.

Darn, now THAT song's in my head!

:)

Linda said...

Lately it's been the new Fall Out Boy song "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race" that goes constantly through my head on a continuous loop over and over again ...

"All the boys who the dance floor didn't love
And all the girls whose lips couldn't move fast enough
Sing until your lungs give out"

ARGH!!!!

groovyoldlady said...

Help!!!!! I'm being attacked by aliens! Oh wait, you're a member of Starfleet. Sorry, If I'd known, I'da wore my uniform. I assume you're giving free tribbles to every party guest, right?

Song? I have young kids. "The Ants go Marching" is a very recurrent theme rhere right now.

Stop by my blog for the party. There are almost 500 people in my kitchen sampling weird foods that I've never made before. If you read carefully you'll even notice that I've mentioned Cling-ons in my Day 2 post.

Mykol said...

Stevie Wonder's "Part Time Lovers"
Along with another one of his songs, "Sir Duke".

WindWhisperer said...

I'm going to check out that blog party, it sounds neat. As for TWQ...it took me years to get the "Macarena" song out of my head...and all I have to do is mention it and it's back like a pesky itch.

[eric] said...

That Scissor Sisters song, "I Don't Feel Like Dancing." Stupid song is like a Chinese finger puzzle for the brain.

Bea said...

John Williams' theme from "Schindler's List" and Three Dog Night's "Momma Told Me Not to Come" are stuck in my head at the moment. Excellent question!!

Carina said...

When I go about randomly humming, for some reason "Hail to the Chief" always comes out. Don't know why....

Darth Nepharia said...

Actually, my daughter showed me this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv5zWaTEVkI) and I'll find myself singing the chorus quite often :D

Titania Starlight said...

I'm with Leslie. U2's Vertigo is unforgettable. :o)

Barbara said...

Great party Captain! Can't seem to get Rock Lobster out of my head though.

Dawn said...

I'm glad you've joined in the partying - I've seen you at my daughter's site, as well as several others.

My brother lives in Manchester and we hope to get back over there again someday.

Denise W said...

Just stopping by to meet the Capt. Thanks for the offer, just some Prune Juice, I'm driving :-)

I'm a big Star Wars fan and this made me laugh!

cooltopten said...

current music ratteling round in my brain is whatever music they use on any recent advent on Tv.I just find myself singing some random tune all the time then realise that it was on a advert I heard 2 mins ago.Who says advertising dosent work :)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You all have those songs in your minds! I know 'Female of the Species' is in mine!

carli said...

Good question! I always have a song stuck in my head, but lately, and this is going to sound weird, but the Mork and Mindy theme has been popping in a lot.

I read an article in Discover Magazine a while back about "earworms"--which is basically a gross way of saying you have a song stuck in your head. But right now, the image of a person with a bunch of worms sticking out of their ears is what's stuck in my head.

Tammy said...

I've always got some song stuck in my head....but it's usually whatever I last heard on the radio.

DariDonovan said...

Hi There, so nice to meet you. Welcome to the party. You have a lovely place here. Swing by mine for food, fun, and maybe even a giggle or two. There is also a contest but ya better hurry, it ends at Noon tomorrow. Party On!

Come on by and sail with us today!

Deena said...

Greetings! Just stoppin' by from the Ultimate Blog Party and sayin' thank you for visiting me. The song stuck in MY head is Psalm 40 by Newsong..."You put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to You...all I want to do is wake up, and spend my day with You."

For YouTube, it's A-ha's "Take On Me." Catchy song, catchy video.

Right now, I've been immersing myself in the 24 soundtracks, so I've got selections from both of them running through my head.

Sarangeti said...

Hello! Thanks for coming to visit me via the party.

The current song stuck in my head is "Wayward Son" by Kansas. My husband has been practicing it on his electric guitar, and now ny 4-year-old sings it, too.

Love your blog!

The female of the species reminds me that I was a banana in the time of chimpanzees. Thank space monsters evolution did not steer us towered the path of the praying mantis.

Carmi said...

Thanks for the link, Captain. I'm off to get the lowdown on this gigantic blog party. Should be fun!

Paperback Writer said...

I have constant music playing in my head. Currently, I have Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," running through my head!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

Well, I think I still hum tunes from the Lettermen like: Are You Lonesome Tonight. This is just one of them.
Your party is really superb. Oh by the way, You look swell in that tuxedo and oops! I've stepped on one of those chewing gums. It's okay. A party is a party right?
Thanks for dropping by too.

dragonflyfilly said...

"we all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine, .....and we sail upon the sea,....." and so on and so on, that is the one that has been humming in my head ever since i heard an "anthology?" of Beatles tunes the other day.

Brenda said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog for the party! I'm here to return the favor. :o) Interesting blog you've got here.

The tunes that get stuck in my head most often are advertising jingles. Man, I hate that!

Enjoy party week!

Rob Whatman said...

It depends, but most usually I get stuck humming Sugar Sugar by the Archies, Good Mornin' by Doris Day, or Music To Watch Girls By... I should probably change my music blog to Cheesy Listening.com
