My earworm song of the day is Gallant Murray. (It's actually the Emerald Rose version i've got, which skips a couple lines but is mostly the same.) I really have no idea why some songs seem so addictive to me, Gallant Murray isn't really that different from a lot of other celtic songs that i'm not as addicted to, and it's not that similar to a lot of other non-celtic songs that i am addicted to. (Although most of the songs i get serious addicted to are relatively fast paced.)

In any case, i couldn't find much information about the song online (and there's absolutely nothing about it on wikipedia =) but it's clearly referring to Bonnie Prince Charlie, so i think the Murray in question is probably this guy.
