Today's Earworm...

is from that genius multi-instrumentalist Mike Oldfield:



This one sticks in my head in a good way, I like it there. It's a comfortable earworm. I imagine hiking somewhere with a staff in my hand, listening to it.

I'd guess he probably played everything in this cut except the uillean pipes, he probably got Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains to do that for him.

Funny factoid: when my son was an infant, I'd often play Oldfield's LP's Ommadawn and Five Miles Out on the stereo, and my son would screw his face up and start screaming his head off when uillean pipe solos by Moloney would play. Weird.
