A little while ago a friend at work got a song stuck in his head. Worse, it was Michael Jackson’s “Beat it.” The only way he could get rid of it was to replace it with a different song, so the rest of us all contributed other songs that tend to get stuck in our heads — truly wretched songs. “Copa Cabana,” “The Pina Colada Song,” and the “My Three Sons” theme were all tossed around, and eventually my friend got Jacko to beat it out of his head.
But now it’s happening to me. I have the “Bumblebee Tuna” jingle bouncing back and forth inside my head, refusing to quit.
And I’m not even that fond of tuna!
(Yum, yum, bumblebee, bumblebee tuna…)
