    The Song Stuck in Your Head Thread!

    This happens to me all the time. I get a song stuck in my head and I can't get it out. I am a notoriously bad singer. People move away from my singing, even in church. I'm hoping that talking about songs will make them go away.

    This morning's in brain performance is by the cast of Hamilton and the name of the the song is The Schuyler Sisters.

    Today, I know the name. Sometimes I don't. If your in-brain entertainment does not come with a title and lyric sheet, perhaps we can all help you track the song down.

    Just seeing the thread title has put "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" into my head. It'll be there the rest of the day.

    I've had "Heart of Courage" by Two Steps From Hell stuck in my head for a few days.
    This is because my wife is preparing an AV presentation of Easter Island photographs, and is using that tune for the score. She's been matching image transitions to music transitions for the last three days, so I get to hear snatches of the music about forty times a day.
    In idle moments I find myself singing "Da-da-dee-da, da-da-DOO-dah" over and over again.

    Skyrim's theme. I watched several artist's versions and like them all. The result seems to be indelible.

    I only get silly songs stuck in my head. Right now it's "Year 3000" by Busted (yes Busted, not the Jonas Brothers)

    It's just so danged catchy!

    Jeremy Soule is one of the greatest composers working today.

    I think, anyway.

    What tune do you mean? I find all sorts of things out there with the "Skyrim" label.

    (I'm guessing it's pronounced Sky-rim? I initially read it as Skyr-im - Icelandic yogurt with a Hebrew plural ending.)

    His Elder Scrolls (Skyrim) song caused me this week to find info on this writer. He seems to be regarded as the John Williams of video games, which may not be too far off.

    Leah does this elegant version with nice dynamics.
    Sabrina and the Swedish Radio Symphony have this classy one.
    Here Lindsey Sterling joins a powerful 120 track acapela rendition, but they add some humor by playing the roles including even a brief health meter display.

    That's a bit of a false analogy. Soule doesn't really do the anthemic pieces that Williams is famous for. Koji Kondo or Nobuo Uematsu are better candidates for that title IMHO. Soule is more akin to atmospheric composers like Thomas Newman.

    This doesn't work for the U.S., apparently.

    You must trick a lot of coffee to get that stuck. It is certainly likeible.

    I had a cup of coffee for breakfast, but obviously it didn't know what it was doing. So I sent a second down to check on it. The second cup was bit weak, so a third went down to make sure they all got the message.

    You just reminded me I'm running a little low myself.

    Last week it was the opening theme to "Catdog" a Nickelodeon kid's show my children used to watch that was stuck in my head.

    Today it's "To Live and Die in LA" by Wangchung

    This is very dumb, but at the moment... it's the song from this extremely-80s Australian commercial.

    (Sparkly music! After-school-special-villain Americans! Training scenes that look like Rocky IV! The unintentional comedy is very strong.)

    I'm not so sure about the "unintentional" aspect, there.

    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Iím not kidding. I spent two weeks working in a Costco before Christmas and the store speakers were almost directly over my space. And the song keeps shifting between the Dean Martin and Bing Crosby versions.

    Burl Ives brings up the rear.

    An endearing tune from a cowboy that roped the right alliterations.

    I seem to have a subconscious mental tune. The bank teller looked up at me and smiled and told me I was humming the Smurf tune. I had no idea I was doing so and have no idea where it came from. She said she would now be humming it too and for a while, but didn't quite thank me.
