Phrases Set to Stun IV

Once the tune of "Bolero" invades your mind, it takes several hours to get rid of it.  It keeps coming back around like a Pentecostal Chorus.

I read that Pentecostal Circus initially, and had several surreal but enjoyable moments of imagining one.

Not impossible to imagine at all. Snake handlers come to mind. But also there is no limit to the size and scope of praise-full worship. I am sure that only budget concerns prevent it.

I've been trying to remember more but couldn't. There was a short story by Arthur C. Clarke about mental infinite loops. It starts out with the narrator talking about the tune from "The Third Man" and then they develop something, a tune perhaps, that puts the brain into such a loop and thus people into a kind of catatonic state. Maybe Google can help here but I didn't try.

I will check up on this too. The theme from "The Third Man" is so virulent and repeated so often, I can barely watch it unless the volume is turned very low, or off. Anton Karas' zither music almost seems like some sort of mind manipulation weapon, at least to me. And the effect lasts for long after viewing.

I sometimes think elevator music must be a mind control attempt, and that's why I hate it. Paranoid?
