    Hey, John!

    I know about earworms (I didn’t know that is what the constant looping is called, so thanks for the education, old friend!). The other day at work, for whatever reason, Frank Sinatra’s “Summer Wind” was on a loop in my head…I was even singing it softly to myself.

    And it’s not one of my favorites, either! (Though it was Ol’ Blue Eyes’ last big hit.)
