I now have "Deep in the Heart of Texas" stuck in my head - see the last entry for why. We used to sing that song in choir when I was a kid and I always hated it. But they play it at Astros games (after "Take Me Out to the Ballgame") and I don't know who the singer is, but it's full-out country with fiddles and such, and uptempo, and I find that version much more tolerable. I think it's because it's so repetitive - it just works better if you do it fast.

Music Advent is really conducive to earworms, anyway - especially if you watch the videos most people are posting. I've been switching from one to another all week.

George Strait! More folks sing to that tune than the Take Me out to the Ballgame ditty. Why is it I can never remember the 2nd and 3rd verses of Deep in the Heart?

Well phooey, I started writing a whole long answer to this and I lost it somehow. Anyway, yeah, George, and apparently it was originally a Gene Autry song, so MUCH older than 1965. (1941, says Wikipedia.)
