This one didn't just pop into my head. It was featured in a movie; and I can't get it out of my head. "Gloria" is a great song recorded by Laura Branigan and released in 1982. It was a platinum hit and stayed on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100 for 36 weeks, peaking at #2. It's a great earworm to have and will have you up and dancing! This "Gloria" is not to be confused with the 1964 hit "Gloria" released by Them and written by Van Morrison -- "G-L-O-R-I-A". A little tidbit of information. My parents wanted to name me Gloria. I don't care for Linda; but it's better than Gloria! Do you have a song in your head today? Photo Credit: Pixabay
You're watching the official music video for Laura Branigan - "Gloria" from the album 'Branigan' (1982). This cover of Umberto Tozzi's Italian song "Gloria" ...

I really love this song, Yes, you made me think of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and that chorus they play that song always sticks to me whenever I hear it, They played the song "Gloria" dozens of times on the radio when in the 1980s it was Hurricane Gloria time,

This is the song that I thought of when you said "Gloria." Great song! It can get stuck in your head for sure. I wonder what the Van Morrison song is.

Ever since Four Walls posted Killer Queen (is that the name of it?) by Queen, that one has been rolling around in my head. I guess that will be my next post.

This song got stuck in my head after it somehow became the anthem for the St. Louis Blues hockey team when they won the Stanley Cup. It became quite irritating actually even though I do not dislike the song.

Anything that plays over and over in your head can get annoying.

I’ve only listened to the news, but now this one will be stuck in my head. Linda is my middle name, so happy you weren’t named Gloria.

I'll go with Van The Man's Gloria. Was never a big fan of disco.
