For ages I thought George Ezra was Giorgio Moroder and couldn't work out why he was suddenly wildly popular 30 years after his one hit.

Slightly harsh. I guess that's one of the few he got his name on as the main artist, but he was a large factor in the success of a lot of hits:

Oh sure, but if I'm remembering his name, it's from Together In Electric Dreams.

I keep seeing that Wrigley’s chewing gum advert with the zombie* and that short 2 second burst of music keeping going around my head.

I had to look it up and it’s a group called Litany and the song is called Bedroom**.

So there you go. It’s good and hypnotic.

I've had a skip though it. I have a few observations...

Firstly, do they know their white balance is completely off? It's way too warm! Amateurs!

Secondly, that broken cymbal will never give the tonal sound that such a beautiful song requires. They should invest in a new one.

Other than that, wonderful stuff. I especially like the Woo-hoo in the chorus. Very jaunty.

Not thought about that song for years.

I've had Festival Song by Jeff Rosenstock rattling around in my head for about a week now, but there are far worse songs to be afflicted by.

When I listen to Metallica lately, I often start with that song, then perhaps jump to Bleeding Me and then to Outlaw Torn. Load got a lot of stick, but there are some brilliant songs on there.

We can all agree that St Anger is trash though, right? Frantic is a terrible, terrible song, and sets the tone for the whole album.

I bought the CD as soon as it came out and listened to it twice I think. Just aimless noise with each song overstaying its welcome by a few minutes. I've not been able to get into 'Hardwired...' either for much the same reason.

You should always start with this:

Jeff Rosenstock is tremendous, Mister Fop.

The song I keep getting stuck in my head is the new Mandy Moore song- “When I Wasn’t Watching”.

It’s got a strong vibe of Natalie Imbruglia mixed with HAIM, and would probably be fairly unremarkable if it wasn’t for the chorus melody progression taking a very surprising turn, which works really well.

I went through a very long period of humming the Mandy Moore song "I see the light" from Tangled.

Now, however, I am whistling the opening whistly bit from this :

Woke up with the Flumps theme firmly stuck in my head



But then I read Mimi's tweet mentioning Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and now that's stuck in my head instead.

Haha :DD Iwaa just about to say thanks, as now I have The Flumps theme in my head, so we’ve swapped :D

I used to love the Flumps. My Nan made me a Rosie Flump when I was little.

A friend's kids came over and was singing "it's a long way, to the shop - if you want a sausage roll"

(You can probably guess the tune) and now it's stuck in everyone's head, I find myself singing it too.

My brain decided the tune for that should be Brown Girl In The Ring.

Interesting, and unexpected.

In this case he tune is AC/DC and "It's a long way to the top"
