Earworms 14 May 2018


Sorry the worms are a little late. I am having a Person from Porlock day, and now it is a beautiful evening, after what has been a glorious day. It was all too good to miss. Now I’m settling down with a little snackeroo – not one of those mentioned here, but very good, all the same. If you have an Earworm you would like to share, please send it to [email protected], together with a few lines about why you’ve chosen it. Next week’s theme is interruption – musical or otherwise. Many thanks to all contributors.

The Chefs – Food – severin: Brief and to the point. Snacks and meals rather blend together in this song by the punky/indie Brighton band. The song was first featured on a sampler called Vaultage 79 which was (amazingly) the follow up to Vaultage 78. That series (of two) also introduced the world to Wyngate’s favourite R/R nominees Peter and the Test Tube Babies and pop chart sensations The Piranhas.

Nina Simone – Gimme a Pigfoot and a Bottle of Beer – tfd: In spite of the fact that I live mostly among vegans these days (or perhaps because of it) it was the word ‘pigfoot’ that first came to mind.

Chet Atkins: Nut Sundae – Ravi Raman: From his covers of Grammy winners. Here with Jerry Reed Hubbard who composed the number.

Royal Crown Revue – Salt Peanuts – Ravi Raman: boiled or roasted I need salt for my peanuts. And my favourite snack as well. It’s from their 1998 album The Contender.

The Monkees – You Bring The Summer – severin: “I’ll bring the chips and the dips and root beer / Even though dark purple rain clouds are near. When you come around you bring the Summer.” OK, it’s only the opening lines but it’s kind of topical as summer seems to be starting again. I think, maybe.

The Wolfhounds – Cut the Cake – vanwolf: A nice slice of ‘80s indie to have with a cup of tea.

NRBQ – RC Cola And A Moon Pie – tincanman: A bipolar icon of American rock, the band has in their 50 years together both been lauded by legends like McCartney and Dylan and been the house band on The Simpsons for two years. This is one of their songs.

Camper Van Beethoven – Ice Cream Every Day – vanwolf: I’m not sure it’s a particularly healthy snack but at least it’s sweet.

Anthony Weis – Bright Crisp Morning – AliM: OK, it’s a shoe-in. But most mornings (aside from this one, which was glorious), can be improved by the addition of a marmite with cheese’n’onion crisp sandwich.
