Earworm: Decemberists - The Sporting Life

This is one of those persistent earworms that resurface every couple of days; the rollicking sock-hopper sound disguises the bitterness of the lyrics, in the frozen moment of a fall on an athletic field. The Sporting Life has less of a historical setting than most of the songs on Picaresque, but it's no less a comedy-of-manners song.

If you suffer from earworms you might as well put them to good use! Earworms (musical brain trainer) can give you the gift of language. Set to funky music, they have captured essential phrases. It's unique in that it’s effortless – just play the CD in the car, at the gym, or as a download on your MP3 player while jogging, and after a few repetitions key words and phrases and are embedded in your mind, ready for instant recall when required.
