Can’t stop singing

I’ve been singing constantly for the last two days and can’t seem to stop. It started yesterday while driving to the train station. I had the old tune, “Moonlight Bay” in my head and I sang it the entire time I was driving to the station, alternating between the Bing Crosby parts and the Gary Crosby parts each time. Later in the day, I’d find myself humming the song under my breath while working. And even in the evening, while waiting in line at Boston Market, I was still humming the tune.

This morning, same thing, different song. On the way to the train this morning, I was singing “Mimi”. The only version I know is sung by Maurice Chevalier on Bing Crosby’s radio show. It’s been in my head all morning; I was even humming it in the shower at the gym.
