Round and Round
Yesterday was the final performance of a local community musical I lent my abundant abilities to (*cough*). I enjoy most musical theatre and this one had some great stuff in it, but no matter what the show nor how long I've been involved in it, by the end of the run I am going insane with having the same songs constantly on repeat in my head. There are some shows that are notoriously annoying like that, and this was one of them.
I try to twist the songs so the merge into something else. Today I managed to get one to cross over to 'Everybody Scream' from The Nightmare Before Christmas, and another to the Oompa Loompa song from Willy Wonker & The Chocolate Factory, both of which amuse me endlessly, but no sooner was I enjoying the new show-free music when it would creep back in.
Typically, I can rid myself of the tunes within a couple of weeks, but some linger. It was only recently that I started to hum a tune from the show I did at the start of the year, and boy was I not popular with those I was working with at the time!
I'll just have to immerse myself in other music for a while.
Oom pa pa...
