    The Beat Farmers "Happy Boy" is worth looking up -- a top notch ear worm -- "Hubba, hubba, hubba!" (R.I.P. Country Dick Montana).

    Whip It by Devo.

    The Final Jeopardy jingle.


    For the slightly older crowd...

    "I've got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it's cold outside, I've got the month of May..."

    "Baby love, my baby love. I need your love, oh how I need your love..."

    "In this dirty old heart of the city, where the sun refuse to shine..."

    "I keep a close watch on this heart of mine. I keep my eyes out for the ties that bind..."

    "We don't smoke marijuana in Muskogee. We don't take our trips on LSD..."

    The theme from the Addams Family (snap, snap!).



    and Photon Wrangler, I remember Gunther Tuddie and Francis Muldoon, too.
    "Show them a light, and they'll follow it anywhere..."

    BUMP!

    Several years ago I started this thread about "ear worms," those songs that get stuck in your head that won't go away. Well today I stumbled upon something that just might help to auditorially unstickify those tunes...

    Former post got removed probably because I added a link leading to internet radio, which plays certain style of music.

    Maybe someone was thinking I advertise my own station

    Let´s just say, that quite often some demoscene tune or old consoles (not mentioning which one, to not advertise) or computers (no saying which etc...) tune stucks in my head.

    Many good ones, many favorites. Title of R-Type (Tel, Vaca) plays often in forehead.
    A certain popular online video site is also FULL of these old great tunes.

    I really admire people, who actually do their own version for example with their guitar, learn to play it and upload those vids.

    i have avoided this topic for good cause.. as i keep getting songs stuck playing the chorus or similar short part of it in repeat mode if not daily then weekly.. they just stay playing in my head.

    worse so far to get rid of (took me over a week years ago to banish it) since then it has only run for few hours. (horrible that too..but still tolearable)

    i am getting better at picking the right songs to fill in/substitute the earworm song with another.. less annoying one.. and then picking a third or fourth song to get that second out of my head.. and then finally i get the silence i seek.. hahaha..

    oh the worst ever to get rid of.. the one that i cant get out of my head..

    kylie minogue: CANT GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD! lal lal laa.. lal lal laa

    ARGGHH!!

    i just cant get you out of my head..


    ..to original poster.. pink panther theme is cool theme.. i dont mind if it rings in my head.. and it surely rings often too.

    and.. i would like to have my phone ring with Law and order "tha dungg" sound. or announce a text msg with one.

    ps. i could start putting songs in this thread that keep playing inside my head.. maybe i should. just add those that ring more than hour..

    -this morning i kept hearing: Elvis.. you aint nuthing but a hound dog.
    yesterday i kept hearing: who wants to live forever by queen.

    I had a Lady Gaga tune in my head a few days ago...lasted all day. Damn near drove me nuts, especially given the contempt I have for her worthless butt. I think it started because I heard my wife humming a tune of hers in the shower. She had just seen her in concert with some friends the night before.

    Next time she gets one of those tunes from "her" stuck in my head, she is getting a heavy and loud dose of metal...

    I know it sounds crazy, but my tune in my head right now is:
    France Gall - Poupee de Cire, Poupee de Son
    It's Luxembourgs's eurovision song from 1965.
    If you don't know what Eurovision, it is a song contest between European countries sent on live television.
    Great song btw I have been listening to it for exactly 5 hours and 53 minutes now, in a stroke!

    Jimmy Fallon's "BP Song", which will get you some looks if you slip and sing it aloud, but you can't help it..

    Whenever I get a song stuck in my head that I can't stand, I trump it with Susan Vega's "Tom's Diner" (or something like that). It can dislodge anything (except, maybe, the batman theme).

    Along a similar line, that instrumental music from Beverly Hills Cop 1, the one that plays whenever Murphy is tiptoeing around somewhere.

    This is one of the all time classic greats... I hope I never forget it. So great, in fact, that I plan to cover my ears and hum this tune every time I hear Lady Gaga.

    A classic from my childhood also! David Seville was really Ross Bagdasarian. When you get a moment, read up on how he came up with the Chipmunks. It's a neat rags-to-riches story.
