Mine currently is William Croft's Ground in C minor (wrongly attributed to Purcell), as played here by Nataly Makovskaya. I find that recording very pleasantly hypnotic.
My favourite piece! :casque:

Bach's Bouree. I still hear it in my head, the first half, even though I haven't played it in months.

Most/all of these replies seem to refer to worthwhile pieces that people actually like. All too often, earworms are pieces, tunes or jingles that you actively dislike, but simply can't get rid of once they pop into your mind.

For me, that used to be some of the 80s pop tunes. Aaah, now I think about them, they're worming their way back into my ears! :cry:

I've been chopping up a recording of my teacher playing live - it was recorded as one track, so I've uploaded the individual tracks onto Soundcloud, as a playlist. I did it over a week, so as you can imagine I can hear nothing but him playing at the moment - even when I'm trying to get to sleep! I managed to cut out all of the extraneous coughing in between tracks, too. It's here if you'd like to listen:

Mine's also Villa-Lobos, "Schottish Choro"... it's been a few months actually and might prove even more insistent than the saxophone part of "Careless Whisper".

My Lady Hunsdon's Puffe, John Dowland.

I whistle it. Occasionally someone will ask me what it is called. I get some strange looks when I tell them 😊.

"Chant" by Brian Head. There's an other-worldly quality to "Chant" that dominates my internal radio anytime I hear it. It's a beautiful piece, but it sometimes wears out its welcome inside my head. :lol:

The opening measures of Bach's Chaconne.

See, now everyone will be stuck with it the rest of the day:-)
