Rant: Bolero won't leave my brain!

Ah. Torvill and Dean's 1984 Gold Medal Olympic free dance performance earned the pair a perfect 6.0 from all the judges.
Everyone who sees them feels a romantic swoon.
However. Ravel's Bolero has been stuck in my head for three days in a row. It's making me nuts.
I should be greateful to Jayne and Christopher, though. The original piece is a whopping 17 minutes. Their cut of it is just 4:28.
It's just annoying when that 4:28 keeps running through my brain 24/7...

Trying being into ice dancing and watching all the Yankee Polka CDs from Europeans. I am sure that music is much more dangerous than Bolero for being stuck in the head. :)

Oooh. Polka. I think you have won, my friend. :) It's not a great prize though: accordion music for one to be played in the head for 24 hours--congratulations!
