Did you ever have a pesky tune in your head that just won't go away???

While standing in my morning shower

Pitter patter on my face

An old tune popped into my head

And then my mind began to race


I knew this tune but did not know why

Or how or where from whence it came

The more I thought the less I knew

As old age played its amusing game


Finally it began to gel

It was a TV jingle from long ago

  Madison Ave time bomb in my head

But what they were selling I still don’t know


The bomb went off but was a dud

Today my office smells of smoke

From the burned spot on my wooden head

As I try to solve their evil joke


A young ladies voice, maybe British

A wordless tune except for one

La La La in sweet repetition

So with the Den I’ll share the fun


Good Luck I gave up


La La La La La La La La      



La La La La La La La La La La 


 La La La La La La La La

I'm humming the song, but can't find it on Google. I'm thinking Faith...

Eureka! Marianne Faithful of Lala productions.

I think you missed one 'la' in the middle line, but I'll get back to you.

When you said British, Twiggy immediately came to mind - but I have no idea what the commercial might be. I hope you figure it out!

Hi Patrick
When you know the tune and only some of the words, it really gets boring. I stupidly try to block it out with another song and ditto, there we go again. Cheers, Liz

Yes, more than once, except in my case, it's O, Holy Night running through my head, as well as some of the songs we are singing for our upcoming church Christmas Cantata! LOL Well done, Patrick!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

I'd say hum a few bars, but then the dang thing might spread.
Much enjoyed.

They call that "Ohrenwurm" in German, which means ear worm. A song that crawls into your head and won't come unstuck. Get those all the damned time. Almost every morning I have some stupid song in my head and no idea why it's there.
