I just realised...

That the title of this blog is the title of a track on Badly Drawn Boy's Mercury prize-winning album The Hour of the Bewilderbeast.

This was a side effect of playing the album for the first time in years yesterday. Another side effect was getting another track - Once Around the Block - take hold as the ultimate earworm. This tune, or rather simply the hook and scat vocal section, has been running in my head non-stop all day. And now I'd just like to go to sleep and turn it offf... But I cannot!

Still, it's not all bad. I like finding albums I shelved years ago, revisiting them and discovering anew why I bought them in the first place, but not being a prisoner in my own head at the mercy of incomplete tunes!
