Summary:
A 63-year-old woman claims that she has had the same song stuck in her head for three years. Susan Root says Patti Page's rendition of 'How Much is that Doggie in the Window' has been her earworm. As John Basedow reports, Root says thanks to a rare care of tinnitus, other songs like 'God Save the Queen' and 'Happy Birthday' are also driving her mad.
