Ear Worm

Sometimes I go on food jags, where I eat relatively large amounts of one kind of food, such as when oranges are in season, or lettuce, or peaches. Other times it's a music jag, as in this case. Lately I have been playing this song everywhere -- in the car, on my iPod when I'm pruning trees and vines, and around the house while I work.  If ear worm is a pest, then if I can hear this song all the time I won't bother trying to kill this bug, because I absolutely love it.

I have no idea what any of the words mean, but some music all about what's beyond the words.  Whether you're out in the field, hanging out in the kitchen or working, this is a great song to move to while you work. All work should involve some dancing, in my opinion.

It is sung by the incomparable Miriam Makeba, South Africa's First Lady of Soul. Enjoy. (If it does not load you may have to follow the link below...blogger is kind of weird this way sometimes.)



  1. I'm the same way. I will definitely listen to this! I think having music playing helps you get "into" whatever you're doing.

  2. Agreed. I don't know if I'd be able to get going in the morning without some fast jazz or other upbeat music!
