Everything’s Alright

YouTube Preview ImageThis one was my earworm for yesterday. My subconscious probably chose it because a problem I had feared would cause major upsets had just that morning dissolved, so the occasion was a happy one. As an earworm, the song – however beautiful it is – frustates me, as getting the melody right defeats me every time, and there I am, stuck with some snatches in my head and unable to put them together properly. And of course, it’s not entirely unproblematic in the film either – as you can see if you watch the clip above. Still, it’s lovely.

    My happy earworm (whether it expresses a state of or wish for happiness) is usually “Mushaboom” by Feist. It’s so…gemutlich, is the word, I think.

    Jean, this one’s not really a happy earworm for me – more of a relief from stress. A moment when you think something will go wrong, and then doesn’t. Now I have to think about what my happy earworm is … ;-)

    Happy earworm = Monty Python for me.

    I don’t know if it’s the lyrics, the bagpipers, or the lights.

    Always look on the bright side of death!

    interesting (to me) fact: I sang part of this song as a solo in choir when I was a freshman in high school. I hadn’t thought about it in forever, but it’s a great song.
