A couple of haunting tunes from Peter Gabriel come back from time to time, "Red Rain" and "Don't Give Up". These came to me a couple of decades ago on a 2-CD set titled only "Hit". The first CD is labelled "Hit", the second is labelled "Miss". There are lots of good tunes on the latter, it is just a bit of someone's humour.

Nope, Thought I was getting Mike McDonald's autograph, instead I received a few PK flashlights lol... Yes, I need help my meds aren't working!!
Bonus; it came with a bizness card with my autograph. 👍
Oh and some folks received PK's alluminum bizness card that doubles as a throwing star.

I renamed Chyna to Ginger. Problem solved.

Worse than getting a song stuck in your head is getting a song in a foreign language stuck in your head, like this Korean earworm. "Mr. Taxi". Ever notice how most Asian pop music tosses in a few English words or lines?

Two of the girls are actually American, were born in the same California hospital. Never met until their families moved to South Korea and they got the gig with this song and dance group.

Many of their videos use high precision choreography so they can have costume and scenery change cuts and the dancing looks seamless.

Their performance reminds me of Britney Spears.
Here's another foreign language ear worm for you.

NANOWAR OF STEEL - Valhalleluja (ft. Angus McFife from Gloryhammer)

Starts out kinda slow and emo, but just wait for it...

Well.........ummmm.......that was.......ummmmm......rather bizarre. You like it? o_O
I find it to be a hilarious parody of Scandinavian symphonic thrash metal. :) Nevermind that Nanowar of Steel is from Italy and Gloryhammer is a Scottish band.

Gloryhammer has four albums that together tell some big epic story, but the lyrics are all a bit funny yet performed seriously. A few of the track names: "Holy Flaming Hammer of Unholy Cosmic Frost", "Legendary Enchanted Jetpack", "Vorpal Laserblaster of Pittenweem", "The Unicorn Invasion of Dundee", "Wasteland Warrior Hoots Patrol", "Hootsforce". Several of the tracks have some rather fancy looking music videos on YouTube.

I have as yet only listened to a few tracks. I need to take the time to listen to all four albums in order.
