I don’t even particularly like this song. I understand it’s emotionally charged with memories of 09/11 for many, and for that reason I respect it. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s the kind of song that does not appeal to me much. Still, it sticks to me like a burr whenever I hear even a snatch of it.
Yesterday, someone hummed it near me – and here is my revenge on you all: I’m giving you the earworm.
