Music Scripture doesn't say it be we know those angels were singing at the manger. And music has been the heart of Christmas ever since.

santahat Holly Jolly Ouch in my head

Sometimes it can be a welcome interruption to other thoughts and sometimes I think I'm going Christmas batty.

A handful of Christmas Songs get stuck in my head - not ones I consider my favorites (a few of them would make my top 20).

Is it because the lyrics are simple and repetitive themselves? Is it a Christmas lyric brain freeze? Is it some smell or sound that sparks a memory and then the song jumps in? Was someone else humming the same tune and I didn't pay attention to it at the time?

I dunno, but there they are wrapping their lyrics or melodies around my brain refusing to let go - sometimes just the same verse over and over and sometimes the whole song . . . playing as if it's on the radio - sometimes with a different performer. For the most part these are the usual songs (and performer's versions) that get stuck in what I call a dose of Christmas Song Flu

Driving Home for Christmas, Chris Rea
Here We Come A-Wassailing, the Muppets
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, The Peanuts Gang - Vince Guaraldi
A Holly Jolly Christmas, Burl Ives
Mele Kalikimaka, Bing Crosby
Here Comes Santa Claus, Gene Autry
Celebrate Me Home, Kenny Loggins
Jingle Bell Rock, Bobby Helms
Sleigh Ride, Johnny Mathis (or the Ronettes)
We Need A Little Christmas, The Muppets
Winter Wonderland, Frank Sinatra
Jolly Old St. Nicholas, Andy Williams
Zat You Santa Claus, Louis Armstrong
Christmas in Killarney, Irish Rovers
I Yust Go Nuts At Christmas, Yorg Jorgensen (really)
Hard Candy Christmas, Dolly Parton (OíMalley cries like a she-cat when he hears that one)
Let it Snow! Frank Sinatra (even if I don't want it to snow anymore)

In the daytime, it's not so bad, something will happen (like work) to get the song out of my mind without passing it onto someone else, but at night when I'm trying to sleep - ouch!

So, which Christmas tunes get stuck in your head (even if theyíre not your every day faves)?

It's all that Crown Royal for your sinus clog!!!!!!

No matter what I do, I can't get rid of Mariah Carey "All I want for Christmas is you" !!!! I personally have great difficulty in tolerating the woman at the best of times and daily, I'm liking the song less and less. It will be playing on a loop in my own personal hell, whilst I'm being fed my mother's fish stick casserole, served to me by people with bad teeth!!!!!!!!!

RJD, you've probably got a bunch of tunes playing at the same time like a Christmas Lounge Lizard.

Hard to believe with all the music you record that nothing gets stuck.

Maybe I have extra sticky stuff in my music vault. HaHa.

Maureen, I know the song, but the one I've heard is by Kurt Swinghammer.

Mammaduke, Little Drummer Boy gets into my head too - usually the Boney M version.

I'm there! It's the "gimmick" songs that usually get me. And yes, it's worse when it happens during the night. Much worse!!!

I was listening to Arrogant Worms (Idiot Road CD) and they have a song called "Inside My Head" and it sounded like they took the thoughts out of mine and made a song out of it.

Do you think I can ask them for royalties on my thoughts? Hmm. That would be cool.

Maebeary sometimes commercial jingles creep in more often than Christmas tunes.

Having recently recovered from Polly Put the Kettle On (geesh) and the Hanes Underwear Jingle, I'm relieved to report Oscar Mayer weiner jingle has crept up to greet me yet again.

Hopefully the mere mention of it is enough to get it out of my head and into someone else's.

Sorry, but that's the way it works sometimes.

Relieved you might wonder? Yes. I guess it boils down to what song gets stuck that you can tolerate longer than another.

For me, I'd rather hear Oscar Mayer than Polly Put the Kettle On.

Check this one out for a lipsync performance to Arrogant Worms Song In My Head (I mentioned two posts ago)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmadeC8oifI

Actually the lad performing helps emphasize how annoying the song and the experience can be.

Don't throw snowballs at the screen, it could cause technical difficulties. HaHa.

I don't know why but the song Mary did You Know, runs through my head over & over at night. I find myself thinking about that song as I lay in bed at night falling a sleep.
