Since this thread has been dug up after 4 1/2 years of dormancy I'll share with you what's been firmly lodged and dormant in my brain for several decades.

It's the theme to........






Raiders of the Lost Ark

Baroque hoedown sticks pretty bad (although most people might know it as the music from Disneys main street electrical parade)

And one that I just can't get out of my mind is the theme from Pippols, a videogame by Konami back in the eighties...

Oh yeah, that one has gotten stuck in my head also. A bit of trivia about that tune, at least the one that Disney uses in the parade - the artist was Jean Jacques-Perrey of the Perrey-Kingsley duo of the 60s. They were the very first ones to bring synthesizer music to the pop charts. Their Baroque Hoedown combined music that was purely synthesized (on the Moog) with real instruments that were processed and altered by the Moog and other devices (tape loops, etc) to produce a sound that was truly unique. And gets stuck in your head.
:rolleyes:

Right now I've got AC/DC's "Shoot to Thrill" stuck in my head. (It doesn't help that I'm watching Iron Man 2 on blu-ray,which has Shoot to Thrill as one of the songs in the movie..) AAGH!!! (Great movie,BTW.)

Re: FISH HEADS!

I remember seeing the video of this song on H.B.O. back in the early eighties. I also remember my dad yelling "Shut up!!" after an hour listening to me singing the song. Memories :D.

I find sometimes that the song that I'm humming to my self or was thinking of in my head would be playing on the radio at the same time or shortly afterward.

An example would be this afternoon, I was humming the intro to "KIDS" by MGMT. Got in the car, turned on the ignition, and the radio came on with the same song playing. :whistle:
