Ooey-Gooey – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Earworm


Ooey-Gooey – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Earworm 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 8/18


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “earworm.” Talk about your latest earworm, or one that habitually haunts you. Enjoy!


Linda has asked us to write about ‘earworms’ for the SOCS challenge, today. Thanks, Linda!


Earworm, earworm, ooey gooey earworm…no, that’s not how the song goes.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out…no, that’s not it either, but it’s a really creepy song.

Earworm sounds pretty creepy, too, but it’s not all that bad. When you say you have an earworm, it means you have some song, or part of a song stuck in your head, and it keeps playing over and over until you’re sick of it.

Most times, for me, it’s a good song, and one I like, so I don’t mind. It helps to go play the actual song, so then you’re done with it.

The worst for me are the TV commercial ads songs. Ugh! I suppose that’s the purpose of them, to get you to remember their product. But, if I can’t stand the jingle, then I don’t want to buy their stuff.


If you want to, here’s a whole little story I wrote about earworms. 🙂 It’s creepy and funny! Some of you have read it before, but others haven’t, so…here’s the link to my story:

“It’s All in My Head”



Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Yes, I’m the same…TV Commercials are the worst! LOL! BTW – Thanks for the re-post of your previous write-up about earworms, that was awesome!!

    • Thanks so much, Shelley! Those commercials, whether there is a song or not, I just have to stop up my ears from hearing them. They seem to use them over & over until we are sick of them!
      Thanks for checking out the earlier story on earworms. So happy you enjoyed reading it. 🙂

  2. I’m drawing a blank on recent jingles, but can remember the ones from the ’60’s like it was yesterday. Especially the cigarette jingles, e.g. “Winston tastes good like a (clapclap) cigarette should.”
