Heard the local song thrush singing the first five notes of Glenn Miller’s In the Mood several times this morning. I ended up humming the damn tune all afternoon. Bloody ear-worms! I’d have thought Glenn Miller was a bit old-fashioned for the thrushes of today. Shouldn’t they be into hip-hop, or K-pop, or dub-step (whatever the hell they’re supposed to be)?
