We have done the "what's your favorite song?" Favorite band ect...
But during the course of life quite often you have a song in your head. You may not even like the song but none the less there it is.
For me a song has been stuck there for 3 days now and I can't seem to shake it.
The song is: Stuck in the Middle With You by Stealers Wheel.
What song is in your head right now?
If there isn't one now what was the last one that got stuck there?

right now it's "The Ability To Swing" and "Budapest By Blimp" from Thomas Dolby's "Aliens Ate My Buick" album.

For some strange reason I end up with the following songs a lot:

"Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" -Warren Zevon
"Food around the corner, No more meatless Tuesdays for me!" - Elmer Fudd cartoon from the 40's.
"I think I'm a Clone now", and others - Weird Al Yankovich
"It's a small world" - Disney
"Just another Manic Monday.." - Bangles?
"Buch Dich" (and others) Rammstein
Bavarian drinking songs that won't pass the censorware.
"I'm just a bill.."
"Conjunction Junction, what's your function..."

and for some strange reason, Silent Night sung in German.

Harm non,

frighteningly two songs that I don't even really like the artists all that much:

Stevie Nicks-Stand Back
Huey Lewis-The Heart of Rock and Roll

but they keep on getting mixed together like this...

"Stand Back Stand Back From the Heart of Rock and Roll"

A blinkin' Christmas carol in November - Oh come all ye faithfull.
And the reason - I started humming it when I was reading the USMC thread here, and got subconciously linked with the Semper Fidelis bit (Deste Fidelis)
:confused:

it is referred to as an "earworm". You hear a song and it burrows into your ear/brain and you keep hearing it all day (or all week).

One of the most dangerous earworms is "It's A Small World".

This is definately the most dangerous of all earworms. After reading North Star's post it's stuck in me now.

I imagine that the earworms look and act like those things that they put in the ear in Star Trek - The Wrath of Khan. Nasty little things:D

IT'S EATING MY BRAIN!

Don't have one right now, but for much of last week it was "One Week" by Bare Naked Ladies.

The intro to Carmina Burana - Fortuna imperatrix mundi...not such a bad thing, though.

"Ahhh...now, Commander Chekhov, Captain Terrell...now, you will buy Chrysler Cordoba!"

My personal earworm:

"Dancing Queen" by ABBA. I also refer to this as my "trump song" -- if I have another song stuck in my head, "Dancing Queen" can always eradicate it. :D

I had always thought that line should have been: "Ahhh...now, Commander Chekhov, Captain Terrell, welcome to Fantasy Island!"

Since I was in Las Vegas a couple of months ago and heard it there, Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" is firmly imbedded in my head!!!

Don't remember what song was the last one that got stuck. I used to have a real problem with this, but no more. Now I have a song that I start playing in my head over the stuck one, and the stuck one gets kicked out. That song is "With You There To Help Me" by Jethro Tull.

I still do have a problem with spoken phrases getting stuck. A couple days ago I woke up quoting a line from Monty Python: "Not much of a cheese shop, is it?" It wouldn't go away until I said it out loud.

I don't want to throw off the thread but I just have to say aloud...

"Well, it's certainly uncontaminated by cheese"

"Switchin' To Glide" by The Kings and "Caledonia" by Robin Trower. I heard Robin Trower on XM last night, so that's understandable, but "Switchin' To Glide" is just one of those songs that pops in on occasion.

Another vote here for Thomas Dolby - "One Of Our Submarines" is permanently burned into my wetware.

"China Girl" - Iggy Pop's original version, not Bowie's cover. Which is good, cuz when it escapes my brain through my mouth, it doesn't sound so bad...

I have this terminal disease. The day is shot if I wake up and hear "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". All day hearing "A Wingo Wap, A Wingo Wap, A Wingo Wap followed by WEEEEEEEEeeeeeeEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeAWALLOOWAAAA" really turns me into a physco crazed gerbil killer.

Of coarse listening to anything Tom Jones sings really gives me the same effect. Thats because he's all my dad would play on long road trips resulting in my lifelong emotional scar towards Tom Jones.

At lunch I heard the "Love Boat Theme", this is going to be a long day:(
