So what is an Earworm.....

Wikipedia  gives this definition of an Earworm

An earworm is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing. Phrases used to describe an earworm include musical imagery repetitioninvoluntary musical imagery, and stuck song syndrome. The word earworm is a calque from the German Ohrwurm.

Our very own jingle has already become a bit of an 'Earworm' in this house, and I'm sure it will only get worse when it's heard at every event.  Apparently at least 90% of us experience an Earworm attack at least once a week - some described as 'unpleasant' and 'disturbing' - hopefully our Jingle won't be one of those!

There is a really interesting research project being carried out at Goldsmith's, University of London - have a look here if you would like to be a part of their research

And, come along on Sunday and see if you can adopt our very own Earworm.
