Quoting Daniel Dennett - The other day, I was embarrassed-dismayed-to catch myself walking and humming a melody to myself...I was energetically humming "It Takes Two to Tango"-a perfectly dismal and entirely unredeemed bit of chewing gum for the ears, that was unaccaountalbly popular sometime in the 1950s. I'm sure I have never in my life chosen this melody, esteemed this melody, or any way judged it to be better than silence, but there it was, horrible musical virus, at least as robust in my meme pool as any melody I actually esteem. -
