They say everybody has at least an occasional obsessive-compulsive tendency, but I think I'm a little more OCD than most. My tendencies manifest themselves in two ways:
  • I'm fairly anal-retentive
  • I'm prone to "earworms"
While being anal serves me well from time to time, having an almost constant medley of mental music is just plain annoying.

The DJ at WOCD (the call letters for the "radio" in my head) sometimes provides me with musical variations on a theme. Today's theme is songs featuring authors, writing or reading. For example:
  • "Every Day I Write the Book" by Elvis Costello
  • "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by The Police
  • "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield
  • "My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors" by Moxy Fruvous
Because I know you wouldn't want me to suffer alone, here's a video for that last one:

That was a great vid. Hope I can keep it out of my head now.
