Spring Break Earworms

A few weeks ago, I learned a new term: earworm.  Although it sounds like something out of a Star Trek film, an earworm is a song or jingle that gets stuck inside your head.

Over spring break, my family and I took several road trips which forced me to listen to hours of Kids Place Live on XM and made me suffer through a variety of kiddie earworms.

For the most part, Kids Place Live plays songs that I enjoy (like Kira Willey or Lunch Money), but every once in awhile one really annoying song will pop up in the playlist and my girls think it’s hysterical to torture tease me by constantly singing these horrid harmonies. Every time they torture me, I threaten to call Absolutely Mindy to nominate the song for the Mom’s Veto so it can be banned from the playlist for a week.


“Yes, Sweetie.”

“I love you.”

“I love you too.”


“Yes, Sweetie.”

“I want to be your personal penguin from now on.”

I have some beautifully evil children.

Since misery loves company, I thought I’d share these awful earworms with you.

The Phineas and Ferb ditties are tolerable, but how often do you hear porno music sampled into children’s music? Nothing like a “bow chicka bow wow” earworm stuck in your head.

You’re welcome.

    oh boy i remember those days…playing the same tapes over and over on the car trips. My daughter always put the Chipmunks Christmas album on her record player when she went to bed from age 3 to about 22….
