It’s Not Fair…

…that I’ve had the tune of that darned Lily Allen song going round and round in my head for the last three days now. I don’t even like it…in fact I can’t think of anything by Lily Allen that I do like.

I wonder if it’s really true that you get earwormed by music you don’t like more often than music you do, or if it just seems that way? One way or t’other, it gives me a chance to recount the excellent musical insult I heard the other day: Bill Bailey, in his Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra was talking about the stage musical version of Mama Mia, which he generally didn’t think much of, and described as “Like being hit on the head with a piece of Ikea furniture…it hurts, but you have to admire the workmanship!”.

M’darling Purple Fred wants to go and see Mama Mia. Oh boy.
