The Last Song Syndrome

I hate L.S.S. whenever it happened to me in unexpected places and situations. L.S.S. stands for Last Song Syndrome. It simply means to listen to music before going out of the house, and having the last song you hear before leaving stick in your head all through your journey, and beyond. Is usually accompanied by subconscious humming. This syndrome is particularly dangerous when the song happens to be the most pathetic, crappy, albeit catchy song ever. (from urban dictionary)

Yesterday morning, My daughter started singing this song from a TV commercial. And it was a catchy but very lousy type of song. She started singing it when she saw the ad on TV and she sang along. The Ad was already finished but she kept singing the song.

And what happened next? I started singing too, And i kept singing the whole morning. And the most embarrassing happened when i went to the bank, and while waiting for my turn i started singing it. And because the TV ad was popular. A lot of people were familiar to that song. And to my stupidity i even sang at least two lines. Oh My! I heard people were laughing at my back. and The bank tellers too. So embarrassing!

So after what happened, I started to sing a nice song in my head. To remove the unwanted one. I never thought of singing a new song earlier because i was just so busy. Oh what a day!

Btw, That's my daughter when she was 2.
