I just can't get you out of my head..



La la la..la lala.. lalala la la la...

Ever have one of those days where you simply can't get a tune out of your head? I've had one today with this tune.

I tell you, it makes the days at my temp job fly by. Tomorrow, it'll be 'Do you know the way to San Jose', despite the fact I only know one line.

But why do these tunes stick in my head, and others don't? Yes, you've guessed it, it's because of simplicity.

I remember the very simple tunes (with the exception of Bohemian Rhapsody) and the oddly catchy melodies. There is something in this. People remember complex stuff when they are determined to listen to this.

I've probably watched one Banana Splits episode in my life, yet I know the theme music because it's simple and catchy. Similarly, I've knowingly bought the Economist maybe twice in my life, but I sure know about the advertising and respect the brand because of its comms and brand presence.

I'm old enough to have watched the banna splits in the summer holidays. Can sing the whole song.

Stan - happy to help. I was hoping for the banana splits song to be in your head, but maybe not.

Lauren - thanks for that. Next it'll be Camp Granada. 'Hello muddah.. hello faddah..'.

Marcus - I've seen episodes growing up on cartoon channels, but I cannot sing the whole song. I bow to you sir. Master of the sausage and the split.
