Filk, the good and bad

Filk, for the most part, is incredibly easy to sing*. The tunes are simple, the rhymes are catchy, and some of them are just fun.

However, because some of the tunes are catchy and the rhymes are simple, they are also easily STUCK IN MY HEAD. And no, I'm not talking about "Snow Beast" here. No, no, my head can't even pick a short song. I've got "The Horse-Tamer's Daughter" stuck in my head. It's 90 heptasyllabic lines long!

*For some reason (named kaelikat), I sing the harmony to most of the Leslie Fish duets.
