Earworm of the Day: Wide Awake by Katy Perry

My youngest son loves to listen to the radio. This has actually been really good for me – without him I might be stuck in the ’80’s, listening to the same music I did back in college. The down side is that I often find myself haunted by the music we just listened to. This is my latest haunt. I’m lucky – the song bears up well under repeated hearings. And the video has some amazing imagery.

What music has been haunting you lately?
