Do you have a persistent ear worm? A snippet of a tune that gets stuck in your brain for weeks on end? One which you find yourself humming at the most inopportune of moments, or whistling in the shower?
It’s been stuck in my head for three years now.
And for two of those years, I couldn’t even figure out what the bloody tune was. I knew it was a theme tune. I knew it was from a sitcom. And I knew it was from the 1990s. But hard as I tried to place it, it never came. It just sat in the echoes of my skull, taunting me with its elusiveness.
Then, one day last year, I finally figure it out.
For the most part, that made it stop, but every now and then, it still sneaks its way back into the old noggin, and starts to burrow away again for a few more days.
The only thing that seems to stop it is watching clips from the actual show.
