TGIF: Ohrwurm September 26, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff.

One of my favorite German words is Ohrwurm. An Ohrwurm (literally: earworm) is a portion of a song or other musical material that becomes “stuck” in a person’s head or repeats against one’s will within one’s mind. One of my favorite bloggers shared this little ditty with us the other day, and I cannot get it out of my head for the life of me. She prefaced it as being “the whitest thing [she’d] seen in years.” I apologize in advance for sharing this tune with you because you will not be able to get it out of your head, but it is just too funny to not share. There is some controversy as to whether this clip and this group are actually real. According to some folks, this group really did exist in the 1970s. Even if they didn’t, this is just good stuff!

If you enjoyed it, you might also enjoy the commentary here.

The reason I think this is real is because I had a haircut and the swoopy glasses like the one woman in the video. It would be hard to duplicate the authenticity. I think my favorite person in the whole video is the bass player. He’s so into it.
