Chicago Earworms

Pretty much ever since I saw the movie of Chicago, I've developed a serious earworm of the Cell Block Tango (aka "He Had It Coming"). It's a terribly catchy tune, and one that manages to loop painfully well.

The oddest thing about it, though, is that I never did pick up all of the names in the refrain, except the last one -- it just went by too quickly, and I haven't actually sat down and listened to the CD yet.

So for weeks now, I've had this constant refrain going through my head, that runs, "hmm -- hmm -- hmm -- hmm -- hmm -- Lipschitz!". Feels like my brain is on old Mad comic books...
