The Ear Worm

  I was walking through the desert with the Beetles song
Norwegian Wood stuck in my head. The longer I walked the 
louder it got until it was almost deafening. Over and over
it replayed as I continued on.
  A loose stone and a careless step sent me tumbling. The
song stopped and its absence was a shock worse than the fall.
  Surrounded by sand, rock and silence I felt truly alone.
  I was not just lost but alone.
  The sun beat down but I continued on.
  Rocks reminded me of chess pieces. Chess pieces reminded me
of Murray Head's One Night in Bangkok.
  I no longer walked in silence.

The song references made me giggle - they fit the prompt so perfectly.

Hope you get a better tune stuck in your head soon :-) x
