* 2 Unlimited, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KUmAphvThQ Get Ready for This]]". The name might not ring any bells, but you've heard it in at least one sport event (it's used even for parodies, such as the ''{{Friends}}'' football episode).
** And if you haven't heard it a sporting event, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xh-vk0DaERE you've heard it on]] {{Spongebob Squarepants}}.
* 3 Doors Down: "If I go crazy, then will you still call me Superman?/ If I'm alive and well, will you be there a-holding my hand? /I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might/Kryptonite..."
** Whoever put the last word in, I HATE you for ruining my evil plan.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdB3Oyd5HtU Don't Trust Me]] by 3oh3! ♪B-b-bruises cover your arms~♪ A FULL WEEK, I was singing it. Any time she hears a line from it, it gets stuck in her head another week.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1MMoZ-DLlY My First Kiss]]" is equally catchy. "She will never get enough, once she gets a little touch, if I had it my way, you know that I'd make you say 'Oohoooooooohh, oohoooooh'!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIRW_elc-rY Lollipop]]by 2NE1 featuring Big Bang. Even if you don't understand Korean, it doesn't take much for "Lolli- lolli- lollipop, ohhh lollipop- pop!" to lodge itself firmly in your earholes.
** Anything by 2NE1, especially their new stuff. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuNbqWQt0l0 Clap Your Hands]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ihi_kJJj_8A&feature=fvwk Can't Nobody]] in particular.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:A]]
* Anything by {{ABBA}}, but especially "Take a Chance on Me." They all have fast, driving beats and light, simple lyrics that just ricochet around your brain.
** "Take a Chance on Me" will never be the same after you put this particular [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfViON4mSAw imagery]] to it. And it becomes both an ear and eye-worm.
** ''Gimme Gimme Gimme'', dangit.
*** The worst part about that song: I cannot possibly sing along with it when its stuck in my head. A guy as big as me singing "Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight" just draws strange looks.
** "My my! At Waterloo Napoleon did surrender, oh yeah! And I have met my destiny in quite a sim'lar way... the history book on the shelf, is always repeating itseeeeeelf!!!" Dammit.
** "YEEEEES, I've been broken-hearteeeed/Bluuuue since the day we parteeeed/Why-why diiiid I ever let you go?/Mamma Mia, now I really know/My-my, I could never let you go!"
** "You can daaaaaaance, you can jiiiiive, having the time of your liiiifeeee, ooooh ~ See that giiirl, watch that scene! ~ Diggin' the Dancing Queeeeeeeennnn!"
* [[{{ACDC}} AC/DC's]] songs are easy to earworm, thanks to their repeating choruses.
** In their own words, they've been doing the same song for the whole of their career. So the earworms can build up on each other.
** "I'm on the HIGHWAY TO HELL! On the HIGHWAY TO HELL!"
** "It's a LONG WAY to the TOP if you wanna ROCK AND ROLL..."
** But WE'VE got the BIGGEST... BALLS OF THEM ALL!
** Try getting the riff from "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXaZmY52gHM Back in Black]]" out of your head. You can't, can you?
** [[ThisIsSparta T! N! T!]] It's dynamite!
** IF YOU WANT BLOOD! YOU GOT IT!
* I saw the sign, and it opened up my mind. Now I can't get that damn Ace of Base song out of my mind.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjJwqDa1QVI All that she wants is another baby/She's gone tomorrow boy]]
* Bryan Adams [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f06QZCVUHg Summer of 69]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eT464L1YRA Baby you're all that I want / When you're lyin' here in my arms / I'm findin' it hard to believe / We're in heaven ...]]
** "Me and my baby in a 69..."
* {{Aerosmith}}: "Walk This Way", "Sweet Emotion", "(Dude) Looks Like a Lady" and "Cryin'", just for starters.
** Every true Aerosmith fan has screamed profanities at "Hangman Jury."
* Looking for the Perfect Beat by Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force. Beat-beat-beat-beat... DO DO DO DO DO! * SLAM* DO DO DO DO...'
* Afroman: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeYsTmIzjkw Mah room is still messed up, and I know why. (Why, man?) Because I got high, because I got high, because I got hi-igh. La da dad da....]]"
* For some reason, most things by ChristinaAguilera but especially Genie in a Bottle have a tendency to do this for me.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YiKZJar-lk "Man in the Box"]] by AliceInChains is a great song but it is impossible to get out of your head. That opening guitar riff makes it worse.
** FEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED MY EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYES!
** I feel so alone, gonna end up a big ol' pile of them bones...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpH5i3xD7tA Yeah, here comes the roooosterrr...yeEAAAH!]]
** Into the flood agaiinnnnnnnnn, same old trip it was back theennnnn! So I made a big mistake, try to see it once my waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy-ayyyyyy-yay!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMAGwMAXTpU Name]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALC7kt6iUHY a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BR6NJlk1_A song]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4qAM_RYeLU by]] Alan Parsons Project.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-H4ebn0BeSM&feature=fvst Big Green Tractor]]" by Jason Aldean. "I can take you for a ride on my big green tractor / We can go slow or make it go faster..."
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RMwpNatR40&ob=av2e I've come down with loooove, got bit by the buuuug...]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BysFMtW5dTU&ob=av2e I wanna beeeeeee, a rock star, a superhero...]]
* "Talula," by ToriAmos. Was once stuck in my head for ''six continuous months''.
** Devoted Toriphiles will get any and every ToriAmos song stuck in their head.
*** Okay kiddies, sing it with me now: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dmYRNQnQW0 Never was a cornflake girl, that that was a good solution]]
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MV2vl9ZjACc You better know, you better know, you better know-oh-ohh, I'm at your door, I'm at your door, I'm at your doh-oh-ohr...]]"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9OesoTewgs The demo]] [[SoBadItsGood Howard Wulkan is Bald]] by [[StylisticSuck Anal]] [[RefugeInVulgarity Cunt]].
** '''WHO'S THAT BALD GUY WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET? HAY IT'S HOWAAARRRDDD.'''
** '''''[[http://jp.youtube.com/watch?v=D5eFk5x0o44 I LIT YOUR! I LIT YOUR! I LIT YOUR! BABY ON FIRE!!!]]'''''
* AnimalCollective's hit [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zol2MJf6XNE "My Girls".]] Surreal yet catchy ambient synth accompanies a simple rhythm and some truly sublime vocal harmonies for one hell of a catchy tune.
** "Open up your open up your open up your throat..."
** [[TwoWordsObviousTrope One word]]: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4Pzg-tsZZc Bonefish.]]"
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTbd0Ncsyus Rabbit or Habit, Rabbit or rib...]]"
* An Cafe has too many to be legal-- as far as I am concerned. Among others, and to the chagrin of his not-so-inner {{Grammar Nazi}}, he is occasionally gripped with the urge to break out screaming...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9UT-Zr8i5k Tiramisu nyappy poppo! Poppo nyappy tiramisu!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KyMWE-DyxE L.O.V.E.! Nyappy!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lWdZmn_nR0 Funky fresh days! Funky fresh days! Funky fresh days! Funky fresh days is myself!]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pURJDToKA0k Stop The Rock]] by Apollo 440. CAN'T STOP THE ROCK!
* Anything by Aqua.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dGcYH6Fwj8 "Barbie Girl"]]. I'm a [[MarySue Barbie girl]] in the [[CrapsaccharineWorld Barbie world]]! [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman Life in plastic]], it's fantastic! You can [[ImprobableHairstyle brush my hair]], [[PerverseSexualLust undress me everywhere]]... [[ThePowerOfImagination Imagination]], [[MadScientist life is your creation]]... (now I feel like a tropedoser)
*** [[RepurposedPopSong Mattel's use of this song]] in ''[[IsntItIronic actual Barbie commercials]]'' doesn't help matters.
*** [[{{Leitmotif}} Neither did]] SailorMoonAbridged.
***** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOu4MfVb6JM Chicken Man Edition]]''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr_ZHvY3no8 "Candyman"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buXJlBd3Mf8 "Doctor Jones"]]. Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones, callin' Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones, get up now...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ks-6CqqvUs We are the cartoon heroes/Whoa-o/We are the ones who're gonna last forever/Whoa-o/We came out of a crazy mind/ And walked out on a piece of paper]] You love it; admit it.
* Anything by Architecture in Helsinki, but particularly anything from the ''In Case We Die'' album. Grrrr, ''Nevereverdid''...
** "IT! IS! FIVE!"
** Bring the beep back! Beep beep beep beep beep beep, beep beep beep beep beep beep...
* LouisArmstrong: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8qGa4Yh2qs "IT DON'T MEAN A THAAAAAANG IF IT AIN'T GOT THAT SWING."]]
* A Taste of Honey's Boogie Oogie Oogie (1978) has especially potent EarWorm capacity, as much in the instrumentation/riffs as in the lyrics. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OsXj0fXwjE Even in the 2000s.]]
** [[Tropers/GilgameshKun I]] tend not to have much interest in 1970s disco, but I am painfully glued to the 7-minute extended version of this song such that it's a permanent feature of my house genre playlist.
* [[{{A-ha}} Taaaaaake oooooon meeeee! Take! On Me!]]
* {{Angelspit}}. My ''God'', Angelspit... just about every goddamn song they've done is an EarWorm.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY14M3ufW10 The doctor is IN-SANE!]]"
* RickAstley:
** "[[RickRoll Never gonna give you up,]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jywQLnUnMG0 never gonna let you down...]]"
** On top of that: "Take me to your heart, never let me go, if you knew what I'm feeling, you would not say no..."
** "Whenvea ya need some-body to love! I give my love to you..."
** "Together forever and never to part..."
*** [[Tropers/RiL I]] liked that song in middle school. My parents didn't. My mom is seriously threatening to play it when I get married. Thanks, Mom, for Rickrolling my wedding.
* {{Avenged Sevenfold}}: SHE'S A DWELLING PLACE FOR DEEEEMONS, SHE'S A PLACE FOR EVERY UGLY SPIRIT, EVERY FILTHY BIRD...
** And on that note, Seize the Day. The whole song. Epic.
* Ai Otsuka's Sakuranbo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RoW0bmsSOmo …atashi sakuranbo!]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:B]]
* The B-52s. ''Love Shack''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gciu_ls0qU That is all.]]
** ''Roaaaam If you want toooooo~''
** ''It was a rock lobsteeeeer''
** YOU'RE LIVING IN YOUR OWN PRIVATE IDAHO!
** SHE CAME FROM PLANET CLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIRE!
** We're in the baseeeeeeemennnntttt!
** TOOOOOOPAAAAAAAAZ
* Suga Suga by Baby Bash
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/smalin#p/u/9/SN10ch3vHvo Minuet in G by Bach, although it actually was not written by him]]
* Backstreet Boys: "Tell my whyyyyyyyy (ain't nothin' but a heartache), Tell me whyyyyyyy (ain't nothing but a mistake), Tell me whyyyy (I never wanna hear you say)... I want it that way!"
** "'Cos without you all I'm going to be is...INCOMPLEEEETE!" Made all the worse because I mentally associated it with a girl I liked.
** "Everybody... YEEEEEEEAHHHHHH! Rock your body... YEEEEEEEAHHHHHH!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1KdkQv0FfI "Quit playing games with my heart"]]
* Bad Religion's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0rWzZqN7lE Big Bang]]
** If you share these beliefs you know I wish you well, but there's no room left in heaven and there's sure no room in hell.
* A certain song by Dan Balan: "They call me crazy looooooooop..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88-imwWK8q8 Sweet little bumblebee/I know what you want from me]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwajTekSAcM Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling, do you feel my heart beating...?]] "Eternal Flame" by the Bangles
** "ah oh way oh... walk like an Egyptian..."
** Oh, gosh, Manic Monday always gets me. Oddly enough, it's usually on Tuesdays.
* Baracuda: "Ass Up". "Put your ass in the air, put your ass up in the air. Put your ass in the air, put your ass up in the air. Put your ass in the air, put your ass up in the air. Put your ass in the air, move around like you don't care." Repeat for three minutes, set to a catchy techno beat, and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32oU8YSFR8E this]]. It's easily {{Mondegreen}}ed as "Put giraffes in the air," which means you can also have a ''visual'' that won't leave your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zad2H2uwOGM Sara Bareilles]]: I'm not going to write you a love song ... 'cuz you ask for it ... 'cuz you need one ...
** "Love you're all I ever could need, only one good thing worth trying to be..."
* Basshunter has a way of driving you crazy via catchy technobeats.
** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpQpuL9WMzU his song about DotA]], which can be understood and sung along to ''whether or not you know any Swedish''.
* Battles: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpGp-22t0lU 'Atlas' "People won't be people when they hear this sound..."]]
** I see your Atlas and raise you [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LLAN29W-4w 'Tonto']]
* Harry Belafonte "DAAAAAAAAAAAY-OH! DAAAAAAAY AY AY OH! A daylight come, and Me wan' go home..."
* Then there's any song that fades out with multiple repetitions of a line that is already slightly or very catchy, as Barenaked Ladies' ''Who Needs Sleep'' (also see ''Hey Jude,'' above).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPo9ISQpzvM One Week]] by Barenaked Ladies. It took weeks of this song getting overplayed on the radio before everyone actually figured out the lyrics, but they can all still sing the song word for word when it gets stuck in their head again even though it's pretty old. College humor even did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsMGjCXG0c0 parody song about it]] just to get it stuck in everyones heads again.
* Tony Basil: "Oh Mickey you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, Hey Mickey! Hey Mickey!"
** For the record, ''Mickey'' is my most favoritest song ever.
* "[[BeastieBoys So whatcha whatcha whatcha want?]]"
** Great, thanks for mentioning the Beasties. Now [[{{YYZ}} I've]] got "Sabotage" stuck in my head.
** You got to fight! For your right! TO PAAAAAAAAARTY!
** No! Sleep! TILL BROOKLYN!!
* An earworm from TheBeatles: ''We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine...''
** I hear [[BetterThanCanon a different version]] which her boyfriend wrote: "We all live in a yellow submarine, we hate the stupid thing, we wanna paint it green..."
*** By extension, any of a bazillion songs that use the same highly versatile tune with different lyrics. Football (soccer) fans are fond of this - the official anthem of the Polish club Lech Poznan is one such example of many.
*** "We're all stuck in a Russian submarine, Russian submarine, Russian submarine..." (In reference to the ''Kursk'' disaster.)
** "All you need is love (dunhdadadada)/All you need is love (dunhdadadada)/All you need is love, love/Love is all you need."
** "Na, na na nanana na, nanana na, Hey Jude..." (repeat indefinitely)
*** I hum that in the hallways at school every single day.
*** What's even worse is when it starts switching between that and [[NeonGenesisEvangelion Komm, süßer Tod]].
** For TeChameleon, TheBeatles' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-42ZFa2nuxs Lady Madonna]] to be the worst ear worm he has ever encountered. ''Ever''.
*** Any song by The Beatles is likely to get stuck in your head, when you really think about it. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8HYiaL6DvQ Here's another one.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rInMQWpGpYg And another one.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7F2X3rSSCU And. . .]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCiG7xoEb2Y another. .]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBDF04fQKtQ one.]]
*** The opening from that sounded to my ears remarkably similar to the DrMario theme, and I now wonder if that's where Nintendo got it from. Of course, upon realizing this I had to go listen to it again - or more specifically this [[TearJerker terribly sad]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etw3aSumBEU version]] - and almost cried upon doing so.
** "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on..." It would be bad enough if it was just that, but I get stuck with those words set to the tune of TheOffspring's "Why Don't You Get A Job?" Doubly catchy!
*** This is the only thing ''keeping'' Ob-la-di Ob-la-da from getting stuck in my head - it morphs into "Why Don't You Get A Job".
** "Bang-bang, Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head/Bang-bang, Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead..."
** I am the egg man... they are the egg man... Compounded by this being by far [[WordSaladLyrics their weirdest song]], and being covered by ''at least'' four other bands. I'm just waiting for DreamTheater to cover it.
** C'MONC'MONC'MONC'MON BABY NOW (come on baby) [[FerrisBuellersDayOff TWIST AND SHO-UT! (twist and shout)]] oooooooooOOOOOOOOO'''''OOOOOOOOOOOO'''''
** HEY LA! HEY BA HELLO AH! WOO HOO! HEY LA HEY BA HELLO AH! HEY LA!
** LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS! LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS! LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS! AHH!
** I'd like to be/Under the sea/In an octopus's garden in the shade...
** Let's face it; you could probably count the number of Beatles songs which ''aren't'' Ear Worms on one hand, and still have a few fingers and a thumb left over.
* "I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine, I got a love that I love and it's all mine"... Damn you, Natasha Bedingfield.
** "Feel the rain on your skin, no one else can do it for you..."
** "I'll be your A-N-G-E-L!"
* From the BeeGees: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNe5cNKvyi4&feature=fvst Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! STAYIN' ALIIIIIIIII-IIIIIII-IIIIIII-IIIVE...]]
** YOU SHOULD BE DANCIN', YEAH!
** MORE THAN A WOMAAAAAAAAAN!
* Beethoven's ''Ninth Symphony''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EstY-8NWSgE PLEEEEEASE BABY PLEEASE]]
* Bell Biv Devoe: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdF2zqs1bxQ That girl is POOOOOOISOOOOOOON!]]
* [[{{Beyonce}} Beyoncé]]: "ALL MY SINGLE LADIES! (All my single ladies!)/ALL MY SINGLE LADIES! (All my single ladies!)"
** "Ohh Boy you looking like you like what you see/ Won't you come over check up on it..."
** "You must not 'bout me, you must not know 'bout me!"
*** "To the left, to the left..."
* Big & Rich's "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)." Actually, the whole ''first album'' is CrowningMusicOfAwesome meets EarWorm, but "Save a Horse" in particular.
* TheBirthdayMassacre- I had the chorus to ''Happy Birthday'' stuck in my head for a few days, and the opening to ''To Die For'' as well.
** ''Red Stars'', ''Good Night'' and ''Kill The Lights'' are also particularly bad offenders in the EarWorm department.
** [[NightmareFuel 1, 2, 3, 4, underneath the cellar floor, 5, 6, 7, 8, lover will, suffocate. 1, 2, 3, 4, underneath the cellar floor. 5, 6, 7, 8, lover will, suffocate.]]
* Bizet's ''Carmen'', particularly the Overture.
* The first lines of the song ''Mary'' by the french band Black Bomb A. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E9n28V0mRE Oh Mary, Sweet Mary!]]
* "Strike It Up" by Black Box. "bum bum bum bumbum bum bum bum badabum yeah DANCE DANCE DANCE DANCE!"
** I had it stuck in my head most of high school, but especially 9th grade (1991-1992) and 11th grade (1993-1994). I played it so many times that ''I wore the tape out'' -- and certain members of my family ''still'' want to kill me for that, too.
* The only band as bad as the Pussycat Dolls in Ear Worming are The BlackEyedPeas.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOHGOwbnvTk I got a feeling, that tonight's gonna be a good night. That tonight's gonna be a good, good night for feeling...]]
*** "Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it.."
** "Boom Boom Pow"
** "Meet me halfway / right on the border..."
** PUMP IT/LOUDER!
** "Let's get [[strike: retarded]] it started, ha! Let's get [[strike: retarded]] it started in here!"
** "Imma be, imma be, imma imma imma be..."
* "[[http://www.last.fm/music/Black+ Rebel+ Motorcycle+ Club/_/Berlin Berlin]]" by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club: "I'm fightin' just to breathe as I get back on my knees/And say 'Help me somebody! Help me somebody!'"
* '''[[BlackSabbath I AM]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LjbMVXj0F8 IRON MAN]]'''
** ''[[EpicRiff Der ner ner ner ner ner ner ner]]!'' Yes, in fact, the entire male population of my high school ''did'' play that song for a week on air guitars and real guitars alike, why do you ask?
*** It's even more ear-wormy when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQShOk3NzGE Snagglepuss]] sings it (starts at 0:46, probably Not Safe For Work).
** Speaking of BlackSabbath, don't forget "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkGVVbU1jwg Paranoid]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo135x0oXo8 War Pigs]]"
* From Newgrounds: blarsa's [[http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/199965 "Garden Party"]].
* {{Blink-182}}: "I took her out/It was a Friday night/I wore cologne/To get the feeling right/We started making out/And she took off my pants/[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVhnv_qLuRk But then I turned on the TV..."]]

* "Hook" by Blues Traveler is actually ''about'' this (hence the title), and of course aims for this trope by borrowing one of the oldest earworms in the book, the chord progression from Pachelbel's Canon in D.

* BowlingForSoup. "Val Kilmer". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnM-avhHirE 'Cause the big screen's calling, final casting call! It's your big shot baby, you're the next big star of another stupid movie 'bout a guy with a broken heart...]]

* ''On Our Own'', Bobby Brown's song written for ''{{Ghostbusters}} II''. "Well I guess we're gonna have to take control, ah ah ah ahahahh..."
* Anything, ''anything'' by Japanese duo Brief & Trunks. Just search up 'ブリーフ&トランクス' on YouTube and say goodbye to mental silence.
* Remember Steve? That guy from ''BluesClues?'' He's put out an indie rock album now. His song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gw2KOHRjia8 "Mighty Little Man"]] is ''extremely'' potent. "Nobody else is stronger than I am / Yesterday I moved a mountain / I'd like to be your hero..."
* I have had The Butthole Surfer's ''Pepper'' stuck in my head for, uh... 13 years.
* Lou Bega: "A little bit of Monica in my life... "
* Laura Bell Bundy's "Giddy On Up." It's not so much the lyrics but the melody, although the lyrics ''do'' help: "Love, love, you let me down / Makin' this too easy / Love, love, you let mm down / Think you should be leavin' / Love, love, you let me down, let me down / Mm-hmm, string me along / You better be movin' on / Giddy on up, giddy on out..."
* JustinBieber and Sean Kingston "Shawty is a eenie meenie miney mo lover, Shawty is a eenie meenie miney mo lover, Shawty is a eenie meenie miney mo lover!" And on and on and on... This troper only heard that gorram song once and she can't get it out of her head. She feels sorry for said Shawty.
** Speaking of Bieber, 'Baby' is (unfortunately) catchy. It's that ''chorus'', dammit!
--> [[SmittenTeenageGirl Babeh, babeh, babeh, noooo / Thought you'd always be mine, mine]]
* Breaking Benjamin's 'Breath'. There's a reason it was at #1 for seven weeks in a row.

* Not many songs get stuck in my head until I'm sick of them, but Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly" did. You may not recognize the extremely generic title, but you've almost certainly heard the song - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PWfB4lurT4 it starts in your toes, and it crinkles your nose...]]
* YOU ALL LOSE. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBgp5aDH23g This song]] is the Royal Flush to your Three -of-a kind. (yes it is in {{Borderlands}} why do you ask?)
** Many songs by this band has the potential to be [[EarWorm EarWorms]].

* "Never There" by {{CAKE}}.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cno20onK9dY He's going the distance! He's going the speed...]]
** "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" too.
* {{Caramell}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvq9r6R6QAY Caramelldansen]] is pretty damn catchy.
** There's also an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67ZkAd1wmI English version]], although the Swedish original is probably a little catchier for an English speaker.
*** "Dance to the beat, clap your hands together..."
** [[Tropers/EvoluderViral I]] work at a Halloween store (blame it on a personal BrokeEpisode). One of the many awful duties we can get stuck on is going out in costume and waving to traffic. Of course, owning a pair of very good speakers, I instead hooked up my iPod and began dancing Caramelldansen. In full Jason Voorhees costume. At a busy intersection. You know it's gone viral when random passersby walk up and JOIN YOU.
** [[Tropers/{{Zipp}} I]] occasionally get a non existent version by TheResidents in the style of ''The Third Reich N Roll''. If you ever heard that record, you'll know what I mean.
** It's so catchy, we have a whole trope related to it: CaramelldansenVid.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsMUQK4jdsQ I'm losing my favorite game...]]" (also [[GranTurismo a possible case]] of GrandTheftAutoEffect)
* Carolina Liar. "Show Me What I'm Looking For". This has been stuck in my head for the better part of a week now. I can't make it stop. It's slowly driving me nuts. I have to mute that stupid Overstock dot com commercial every time it comes on for fear of the earworm resurfacing.
* "Prison Bitch" by Rodney Carrington. Just try to listen to it without it getting stuck in your head.
* "Ready for Love" by Cascada

* "Lollipop" by the Chordettes
** I have recently had The Chordettes' ''Lollipop'' stuck in my head, which is already a pretty catchy song. Except whenever I hear it in my head, the titular candy is replaced with...

* The Commodores / FaithNoMore: "I'm easy, I'm easy like sunday morning..."
* Conjure One - "Centre of the Sun" Young girl in the market/Music to the men/When the men leave/Her eyes are red/When her eyes are closed again she sees the dark market of above.../ And she sings/'They say the most horrible things/But I hear violins,/ when I close my eyes/I am at [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6kj0EJWEvw the center of the sun]]/And I cannot be hurt/By anything this wicked world has done' I will begin randomly singing it. It's just... damn beautiful.
* Any song by AliceCooper. ''SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!''.
** I WANNA TASTE YOU BUT YOUR LIPS ARE VENOMOUS POI-SOOOOOOOOOOON!!!
* Pretty much ''everything'' by JonathanCoulton.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zidiWe9yq88 I Feel Fantastic]]. Great song to listen to, practically impossible to sing along with.
** "Code Monkey".
** "Re: Your Brains" is something you can easily listen to on loop.
** [[http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=cbNtYdxB64A Tom Cruise is so in love with Katie...]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEw8xpb1aRA ...you're a Rorschach Test on fire, you're a day-glo pterodactyl.]] The song's about maths, believe it or not, and the video is a zoom into the Mandelbrot Set.
** "Chiron Beta Prime" is not only a great AntiChristmasSong, but quite the EarWorm, too.
** "Creepy Doll" is what you get when you cross-breed NightmareFuel with an EarWorm.
** ''[[http://www.jonathancoulton.com/songdetails/Gambler%27s%20Prayer%20(Demo) Gambler's Prayer]]'' for me. It's not as intense as a lot of the others, but it hits a lot of her adolescent power fantasy/megalomaniac daydreams.

** Do you have to? Do you have to? Do you have to let it linger?
* Taio Cruz. "Break Your Heart". The remix with Ludacris. "I'm only gonna break-break your break-break your heart..."
** One word: ''Dynamite''.
* Three words: Achy Breaky Heart.
** Three more: Billy Ray Cyrus. The WeirdAlYankovic parody is even more earworm-y.
** His daughter is WORSE.
* MileyCyrus's song, "Party in the USA," is an ''insidious'' ear worm. It's even worse if you hate the song.
** ''Anything'' by Miley Cyrus /HannahMontana, particularly "He Could Be the One." It doesn't help that I hate her music with a burning anger.
* For me, it's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCntXvVY5Ww What The Fuck Is Wrong With You]]" by Combichrist. Hell, ''everything'' by Combichrist is this for me! It's just...just...just listen.
** "Hey, you, what the fuck is wrong with you?" That's the chorus, and it's repeated so many times in the song. What's the problem there? ''IT WON'T GET OUT OF MY HEAD!''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwEz5n46j5E Captain Dan: Ship 2 Ship]] among others.

* DaftPunk: "Around the world, around the woooorld..."
** Actually, let's just get it over with and say Daft Punk period.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgBgnoEY4iM Work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger]]. [[GeneralNerd This has been stuck in my head]] for two days even after reading all these other ones (although some have ALMOST succeeded in removing it).
*** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2cYWfq--Nw Daft Hands]] video makes it even better. Fast fingers! So fast!
**** Kanye West's sampling of it, followed (for me at least) by it being overplayed everywhere for a whole summer (my work had a radio playing the pop-station for all of summer 2008, and "Stronger" was played at least once an hour for months) made this even worse.
** I hate to do this to you all, but '''[[spoiler: ONE. MORE. TIME.]]'''
* BUY IT USE IT BREAK IT FIX IT TRASH IT CHANGE IT MELT UPGRADE IT...
* "My Problem" from Dance Hall Crashers. (Sorry, I can't provide any links, It's a tad underground) If you heard the song before and deny it, ''YOU'RE LYING''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnJ8wxhGc9M Found it!]] Click with caution
* "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger. "I'M NOT SICK, BUT I'M NOT WELL!"
** This song may not be an earworm for me, but it's got a lot of good memories attached to it, so I never fail to sing it at the top of my lungs whenever it comes on the radio.
* "[[{{Danzig}} Mother, tell your children not to walk my way...]]"
* One word: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9Bbu_prxJk SANDSTORM.]]
* Dead or Alive: "You spin me right round baby, right round like a record, baby" (was also subject to MemeticMutation on the [[ShockSite Meatspin]] site. No, I am not going to link to it. Google it yourself, if you dare. More benignly, [[CodeGeass Spinzaku]] also got it as his "theme").
** Same with Flo Rida's 'remix' to the tune of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-y18UJ3j7E You spin my head round right round, when ya go down...]]"
*** Not remix, [[SampledUp sample]]. And God, that Flo Rida song is sticky (helps the guest star, [[{{Kesha}} Ke$ha]], sounds like KatyPerry, which appears below in this page).
** Flo Rida's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S2_IBlaCFI Low]]" is just as catchy.
* How about "Sweet Lullaby" by Deep Forest? "Saso saso ato aro aro..." And the sample by Mauro Picotto in Komodo isn't much better - "save a soul, save a love for a better life..." Do NOT listen to any version of these songs unless you want to find yourself humming the melody at inopportune moments.
* DeepPurple, "Smoke on the Water".
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU-ZQWZSGfc In my head / I see you all over me / In my head / You fufill my fantasy]]"...Damn you, Jason Derulo, damn you!

* Now whip it! Into shape! Shape it up! Get straight! Go forward! Move ahead! Try to detect it! It's not too late! To whip it! Whip it good!
* ''Come On, Eileen'' by Dexy's Midnight Runners. "Too-rye-ay!"
** That one even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this]]. One of the lyrics is "you'll hum this tune forever".
* Dethkloks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZcB81Jz_xw Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle]]
* Dimmu Borgir, "Blood Hunger Doctrine" - or at least, the beginning part used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=975Zw8BJ3Vg this awesome trailer]]. Daaaaa-dadadaaaa-daaaa-dadadadada...

** The EpicRiff of "Sultans of Swing".
*** 'Money for Nothing' is worse. It's an AWESOME song, and I still overdose on it sometimes...
* A veteran earworm - "[[DisneyThemeParks There's so much * that we share, that it's time we're aware, it's a small world after all...]]"
** [[TheLionKing NO! ANYTHING BUT THAT!]]
** Reputedly, scientists made "It's a Small World" as an experiment on catchy tunes. I knew [[MadScientist scientists were mad.]]
** I can definitely attest to the catchiness of that song, having had it stuck in my head on and off for the last decade after going on the "It's a small world" ride at Disneyland. It just keeps coming back.
** I believe that its horrifying catchiness was best described by a park employee when she went there - "Don't see 'It's a Small World' unless you want to slit your wrists."
*** In Disneyland, "It's A Small World" is referred to among employees as "The Asylum".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKyPxrzz2cg Listen to it here, if you dare!]]
*** And here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-tDHYE0Uy4 a remix]] from Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix.
** The earworminess was parodied — perhaps a little ''too'' well — by ''TheSimpsons''. "Duff Beer for me, Duff Beer for you, I'll have a Duff, you have one too!" (repeat ad nauseum)
*** According to the DVD commentary, that song originally had ''two'' verses, but was shortened to one to make it more annoying (and hence make the gag funnier).
**** It's a Small World's" earworminess was also parodied, briefly, on FamilyGuy when Stewie wandered away from Peter and was chained to the exhibit.
** * Another Disney World song that will never leave your head is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ya5cwg6VboM Welcome medly]], especially the first part.
* The Distillers were HORRIBLE about this. ( but were no doubt a great band!) I ''STILL'' have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsnkTcdkRUc Coral Fang]] stuck in my head...
*** "Ooooooh Wahoooo, the Coooral Faaang! Stiiick it iiin tooo make you ill!"

**** Ever hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxQZfFOyE4c Word Comes Tumblin' Down?]] You'll be singing it in your ''Afterlife''

* "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls. ...Shut up.

** You think that is an EarWorm? You don't know Dragonforce ear worms until you listen to Black Winter Night, Once in a Lifetime, and Operation Ground and Pound.
** MY SOUL AND MY SPIRIT WILL GO OOOOOOOON FOR ALL OF ETERNITYYYYY!
** This Troper would add "Fury of the Storm" to this list. Heck, a good deal of DragonForce music could likely qualify.

** "I love to drive the taxi, I like it very much. Even though I have no liscense, I always find the clutch." Calcutta will stay with you forever.
** Dr Bombay falls under the category of "Annoyingly Catchy Indian". His music will ''never leave.''
*** Some of Dr Bombay's (aka Jonny Jakobsen) work as Dr MacDoo (a [[{{Fauxreigner}} faux]] Scot) and much of his work as Carlito (a [[{{Fauxreigner}} faux]] Mexican) also refuse to leave the brain once heard, as following some of the related suggestions at the ''My Sitar'' video will prove.

* I had Duffy's "Rain On Your Parade" stuck in my head for ages for a long time, so I got the song, and I have to say there is something strangely soothing about an extremely blonde Welsh woman belting out how she's gonna keep on rainin', rainin', rainin' over you.
* BobDylan's "All Along The Watchtower" can repeat itself over, and over, and over again, especially if you've been watching too much BattlestarGalactica.

* I'm a little surprised that no one's mentioned 'Country Roads, Take Me Home' by John Denver, Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert. It's a beautiful song, though it took hearing it in Whisper of the Heart to realize that... I, an American, began to like (some) American country music because I heard it in a Japanese Anime... that's what you call ironic.
* Pretty much every DoctorSteel song. Subservience has never been so damn catchy.
* CelineDion. ''Titanic's'' theme. NEAAAAAR, FAAAAAR, WHEREVER YOU ARRRREEE....

* DreamTheater has some of this in songs such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH_9lJxeiXg Octavarium]]" (from 12:16 13:49) and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaQpC4HuJ5M Metropolis, pt. 1]]" (starting at 5:57).
* Dane Rumble with his, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNWmOtvkQkE how could you be so cruel to me?]]" Ironic really.

** You know what? Scratch it, anything by Eiffel 65 is bound to get stuck in your head and stay there for an undisclosed amount of time. This troper is especially susceptible to "DJ With the Fire", despite it being one of their lesser known songs.

* I can't believe "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQHrspjw4aA Sweet Dreams]]" by the Eurythmics hasn't been listed yet. The song is unbelievably catchy and I've found myself suddenly singing the song lyrics for no apparent reason.
** Trust me, that's not even the ''start'' of their EarWorm catalog. Hey, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A-Z9IXJ9DM would I lie to you?]]

** I had to learn this song for Christmas in second grade, and subsequently couldn't stop singing it until the next Christmas.
** My son came up with an even catchier parody: "Fleas on my dog. Fleas on my dog ..."
* Bryan Ferry's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yBOas7ZOd8 Let's Stick Together]] is ''absurdly'' catchy.

* Infamous punk band Flipper somehow managed to [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstruct]] this trope with ''Sex Bomb''. All the instuments play this simple little riff, then they start taking solos and some some [[YourMileageMayVary AWESOME]] noise. Just rhythmic chaotic noise. And let's not forget the "hook", which are also the only lyrics in the song:
-->RAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
-->She's a Sex Bomb, Baby-Yeah!
** The Tom Jones song of same name is just as catchy.
** Heck, any Tom Jones song. What's new pussycat, woah woah woah woah.
* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuK2A1ZqoWs "Handlebars"]] by Flobots is the catchiest song known to man.

* FrontLineAssembly write very catchy songs (especially considering the [[{{Industrial}} genre]]), but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBIWW2bwfwk Provision]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7neOT06a9nk Neologic Spasm]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeUMQqhg9TI Prophecy]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQj-syygshQ Circuitry]] are very addictive listening.
* "Maneater" and "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado will worm into your brain and will not give it up. Ever. Not even through another earworm.
** From the pre-[[HotterAndSexier rehaul]] phase, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5E0Rb1y6XAY Powerless]]", specially the banjo, is hard to forget too.
* This troper is terrifyed by female metal screams, but she is obsessed with the song Cassie by Flyleaf.The band is christian so it makes up for the screams.
* 'No Hopers, Jokers and Rogues' by the Fisherman's Friends (a band of fishermen from Port Isaac who sing sea shanties and the like) has an incredibly high [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYA_0R7Vw1s ear worm potential]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phOdMBfT1Tc Paro, Nakso, Mikono, Syro kai Folegandro. Kriti, Rodo, Ko kai Santorini~]] God damn you, Galana. It's even worse since the only words you really can understand if you're not linguistic are Kriti and sleeping bag.
* Cee-Lo Green's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc0mxOXbWIU&ob=av3e Fuck You]] is most definitely an EarWorm.
* A lot of stuff by Gackt. Most notably, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5krfVziv7RY Vanilla]], and his latest release, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAoHRQtvq18 Ghost]]. I have had the latter on repeat since the song came out (which was ''nine days ago'' as of when this was written).
** I see your Vanilla and Ghost, and raise you U+ K, Redemption, Illness Illusion, Kono Daremo Inai Heya De, and Orenji no Taiyou.
** Oh, and now also Koakuma Heaven. Dear god it's catchy...
* "I would die for you, I would die for you, I've been dying just to feel you by my side..." ''#1 Crush'' is one addictive song... Damn you, Garbage.
* Everyone has their own songs; I have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqaUZkf52fs Cherry Lips]] by Garbage stuck in my head.
** First encounter with that song was this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azPqscFXpc4 one]]. Hard to be an ear worm when you're laughing to hard.
* [[{{Genesis}} She seems to have an invisible touch, yeah, she reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart...]]
* Curse you, Genki Rockets, and your ever catchy "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL2od1AF_Cs Heavenly Star]]"! This troper and her sister jokingly refer to it as "[[NoMoreHeroes No More Ear Worm]]" after listening to it during a pre-livestream of ''NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle''.
* Girls Aloud. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8A6Vc4LR9s I'm just a love machine, feeding my fantasy, give me a kiss or three...]]
* "Centerfold" by the J Geils Band (Or Captain Jack if you're a DDR fan). Not even the whole song--just the "nah nah nah nana nah" part.
** "My blood runs cold/ My memories have just been sold! / (na na nananana) My angel is a centerfold..."
*** What makes it worse is that it predicts that it'll be stuck in your head. Why do you think someone's whistling the aforementioned part at the very end?
** "Fright Night, who's it going to be tonight, lock your doors and windows tight, soon you'll all belive i'm right."
** I've been through diamonds! I've been through minks! I've been through it all! ...LOVE STINKS.
* Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll, Part Two" arguably manages to be one of these...despite having no lyrics whatsoever except "Hey!"
** Which was remixed very successfully as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5fDOCwa9L0 Doctorin' the TARDIS]] ten years later. Its arguably even ''catchier'' than the original. Even now, I can't hear the original Rock and Roll Part II without wanting to sing "Doctor Whoooooo HEY Doctor Who, Doctor Whooooo BOSH BOSH The TARDIS" over the top of it.
* The Go-Gos: "Vacation" ...vacation, all I ever wanted...
** "Our Lips Are Sealed"
* So many {{Goldfrapp}} songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDPvwg_Hu9I Join our group and you will find, harmony and piece of mind, make you bettah (We're here to welcome you!)]]. A lot more people are getting exposed to this one due to it's use [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I34JWCY74w in the new SyFy promo]]. And, somehow, the fact that the lyrics (intentionally) read like a jingle for a cult makes it stick even more.
* "[[http://www.vevo.com/watch/selena-gomez-and-the-scene/naturally/USH5V0920974 You are the thunder, and I am the lightning...]]"

** My shadow's the only one that walks beside me, my shallow heart's the only thing that's beating...

** "Welcome to the jungle, watch you break into your - shananananana - knees, knees!"
** "Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty!"
** "I'm on a Nightrain, bottoms up! I'm on a Nightrain, fill my cup!"
** "I used to love her, but I had to kill her..."

* Hermans Hermits' version of "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am."
* Hinoi Team's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iIwJdQDcSA Night of Fire]] is not only semi-silly with the sumo wrestler/comedian Hikkori, it's unbearably catchy. Not to mention the dance is mesmerising.

* Hyde's Sweet Vanilla, Masquerade, Midnight Celebration and Hello definately counts. His music with Kaz as VAMPS counts too: LOVE ADDICT and BLOOD, SEX, ROCK 'N ROLL are hard to get out of your head.

* From IronMaiden: "Run to the Hills" and "The Number of the Beast".

*** "Night creatures crawlin' / The dead start to walk in their maaaaasquerade!
** "Billie Jean is not my lover / She's just a girl who claims that I am the one / But the kid is not my son..."

*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MPdFh5c6tY The Alien Ant Farm cover]] is just as bad an EarWorm. I feel sorry for any RockBand players who buy this. Now if you'll excuse me, [[{{G-mon}} I'll resume my efforts to vacate this from my ears.]]
** I want to love you / (P.Y.T.) Pretty Young Thing / You need some lovin' / TLC (Tender Loving Care)/ And I'll take you there...
** "Dirty DIANAAAAAA"!
** "I wanna rock with you! (All niiiiight!)/Dance you into day! (Sunliiiiight)
** "You know I'm bad, I'm bad, you know it!"
** While we're on the Jacksons, how about "I Want You Back" or friggin' "ABC" by the Jackson 5?
** Oh, and don't forget this one: "The way she came into the room / I knew right then and there / there was something different about this girl". Dangerous. A dangerous ear worm, one might truthfully say.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xrd3lSn5FqQ Life ain't so bad at all! Live your life off the wall!]]
** Gonna Dance, Gonna Shout, Gonna Burn This Disco Out!
** Just because you read it in a magazine/Or see it on the TV screen/Don't make it factual/Though everybody wants to read all about it. Catchy and true!
* JayZ's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hasyLg8fBx4 H to the Izzo]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UjsXo9l6I8 IN NEW YOOOOORK! Concrete jungle where dreams are made of!]] (gets even worse after hearing the StarWars [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNyE2xExktA version]])
* The song "Verteidiger des Wahren Blödsinns" by German band JBO. The lyrics are basically an ode to fun and nonsense (the name translates to something like: "Defenders of the true Nonsense"). The whole thing is also a style parody of Manowar.
* Practically anything by Jellyfish.
* From JethroTull, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1ZHi8nJa8M The Story Of The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsCyC1dZiN8 Living In The Past]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr6maEQvi5Q Slipstream]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCcwNoVSt2E Locomotive Breath]].
** Also - Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of A New Day, Thick As A Brick, Too Old To Rock And Roll, and Aqualung.
*** Yeah, but which ''part'' of ''Thick as a Brick''? It's 45 minutes long and has about seventeen different Earworms buried in it.
* BillyJoel, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFTLKWw542g We Didn't Start The Fire]]" is infuriatingly catchy, particularly if you were alive for the events described.
** It ''really, really'' doesn't help that Coca-Cola used a cover of this song for the "[[http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=n4OXItHCgi0 Los Cocacoleros]]" ad, ''a [[SuperBowlSpecial 2006 FIFA World Cup Special]]''.
** If you weren't alive for all of those events, there's CollegeHumor.com's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QyYaPWasos We Didn't Start the Flamewar"]]
** Or alternatively, JibJab's "In 2007," which is just as catchy as the original with updated lyrics.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jy0YmvGc6o I BET SHES NEVER HAD A BACKSTREET GUY, I BET HER MAMA NEVER TOLD HER WHY]]
** Pretty much anything by Billy Joel. Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqnpeG--bkU "Only The Good Die Young"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVlDSzbrH5M "Downeaster Alexa"]] on for size.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ7ZvxXvn90 "The Middle"]] by Jimmy Eat World. "Hey!! Don't write yourself off yet!!" Try to get that out of your head! I DARE you.
** "IT JUST TAKES SOME TIME, LITTLE GIRL YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIDE"
* EltonJohn: "She's got electric boots!/A mohair suit!/You know I read it [[strike: in a magazine!]] [[{{Mondegreen}} inna back a seee nooo!]]/Buh-buh-buh-benny and the jetsss..." That song just ''will not'' GTFO of my head.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&v=bkMXnk16kiE CAUSE I LIVE AND BREATHE, THIS PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM!]]'' Yes, this song is only a year younger than I am. No, I do not care.
** "'I'm the rocket man... ROCKET MAN! burning out his fuse up here alone..."
** "So Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, where the dogs of society howl..."
* Year 3000 by the Jonas Brothers is the bane of my sisters existence.
** [[TheLittleMermaid I admit that in the past I've been a nasty]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCXiczrRUSg they weren't kidding when they called me kinda strange]]...
** This Troper (probably due to being a die-hard JasonMraz fan) pretty much despises Nick Jonas's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt11Lg4MJ9I Introducing Me]], but ''damn'' is it catchy...
* "Don't Stop Believin'" by {{Journey}}.
** Oh you bastard, I struggle to resist the urge to break out with 'JUST A SMALL TOWN GIRL!' in the middle of lectures at the best of times.
** My choir is singing this as the finale for our mid-winter concert. As such, we have now practically made it our tradition for all of us to sing it at the top of our lungs on bus rides going to singing competitions or shows. It's a blast to have 20 people crammed on a short bus screaming "DOOOOON'T STOP BELIIIIEEEVIIIIN'!"
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGbVoDVWZsc Wheel in the sky keeps on turning]]
*** "ANY WAY YOU WANT IT, THAT'S THE WAY YOU NEED IT! ANY WAY YOU WANT IT!"

** "Who says you can't go home / There's only one place they call me one of their own / Just a hometown boy, born a rollin' stone..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-M9XDrb1dk No siento penas]] by Juanes. A love song with such memorable lines as "Cuando tu me dices a media voz que te ame / Me siento invencible como el huracan mas terrible" and also "Cuando tu me dices a media voz que no me vaya / Me siento indestructible como un cañon de metralla".
** Translated to english they mean "When you tell me in a soft voice that you love me / I feel invincible like the most terrible hurricane" and "When you tell me in a soft voice that you won't leave me / I feel indestructible like an artillery cannon".
* [[JudasPriest HE! IS! THE PAINKILLER!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60Iv_kAjMLk THIS! IS! THE PAINKILLER!]]

* JoanJett. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RAQXg0IdfI "I don't give a damn bout my bad reputation!"]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2-_dVheSM0 "I hate myself for lovin' you...]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3T_xeoGES8 "Put another dime in the jukebox baby!"]]
* Tom Jones's MurderBallad "Delilah" has a dreafully repetitive, hence catchy, chorus.
** [[{{TMOH}} This troper]] finds it especially bad in Peter Alexander's German version.
* On Julien-K's first album "Death to Analog" almost all songs are catchy and hard to get rid of. Like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om9P_mMzPl8 this one]].

* CAUSE THE SEX WAS [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J96ujGstSUw&feature=channel&has_verified=1 SPECTACULAAAAAAAAAR]]. OH OH OH OH AAAAAAAAAAH AAAAAH.

** Keep it coming love! Don't stop it now, don't stop it now!
** My, my, my, my, my Boogie Shoooes!
* Kelis' "Milkshake" brings all the boys to the yard.
* Who could forget the immortal Eduard Khil performing Ostrovskii's "I Am So Happy to Finally Be Back Home" on [[InSovietRussiaTropeMocksYou Soviet]] television in the traditional ''vokaliz'' style? The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oavMtUWDBTM&feature=player_embedded video clip]] survived the fall of the Soviet Union and became the [[http://www.neatorama.com/2010/03/05/the-trolololo-video-explained/comment-page-1/#comment-1915112 "Trololol" meme]] in March of 2010.
* Kid Cudi vs Crookers' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVb_t_ao9gw Day N' Night]]" ({{NSFW}}). Fittingly, it may actually keep you up all night.
* KidRock's "All Summer Long." Who cares that it's a mashup of "Sweet Home Alabama" and "Werewolves of London" -- if you put two ear worms together, you're bound to get a third.
** I'm a cowboy baby... (Ridin' all night and sleepin' all day.)
* "All These Things That I've Done" by TheKillers. Also known as the one song that goes, ''I got soul, but I'm not a soldier''.
** I had this with another song by this band ("Somebody told me, you had a boyfriend...").
*** That would be the aptly titled "Somebody Told Me"
** For me it's the opening guitar part to ''Uncle Johnny''
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT4HB2oOYq8 Spaceman]] says "Everybody look down"... because it's all in my ear.
** "There ain't no motive for this crime/Jenny was a friend of mine/So come on, so come on, so come on."
** "Mr. Brightside" qualifies, and I find the same with "Bones" and "When You Were Young". But especially "Mr. Brightside".
** I have no idea what "Are we human or are we dancers?" is supposed to mean, but it's incredibly catchy.
*** It's a HunterSThompson quote. I'm not entirely sure it means ''anything''.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zc8hbSM1zVo&ob On the corner of Main Street/Just tryin' to keep it in line/You say you wanna move on and/You say I'm fallin' behind/Can you read my mind?]]

* {{KISS}}: I wanna rock and roll all night...
** LICK IT UP! LICK IT UP! AAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
** You're in the PSYYYYYYYY-- PSYCHO CIRCUS! The PSYYYYYY-- The PSYCHO CIRCUS!
* Sean Kingston's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YkyhvCdJ_vM "Fire Burning"]] (on the dance floor) has the most earwormy-est chorus lyrics: "Sombody call 911 shortie's fire buring on the dance floor woah..." and "she's fire burning, fire burning on the dance floor, there's fire burning, fire burning on the dance floor...."
* Kingston Trio - MTA and With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm
* The Knack - I don't think anyone's mentioned [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVdnqEyToqg "My Sharona"]] just yet...it's a particularly virulent one, too.
** Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ19qh4g2-o "Nine Coronas"]]. It's just as catchy as the original, only people give you stranger looks when you're singing those lyrics instead.
** Or Weird Al's "My Bologna"!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GwjfUFyY6M Ceeeeelebration time, come on!]]
* Korpiklaani's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3ZhkLUcKT8 Happy Little Boozer]]''.
* {{Korn}}'s "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PkZkpoQKIU Here to Stay]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_OSox5Ny4k Ya'll Want a Single]]"
** And "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9Fg8bwGYxI Freak on a Leash]]".
** After many {{Korn}} fans heard a pre-release sample of the chorus of "Fear Is A Place To Live", it became embedded in their brains note-for-note until the album finally came out.
* KylieMinogue's appropriately titled [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IFx3WX4DES0 Can't Get You Outta My Head]].
** Lalala-lalalalala-lalala-lalalalala.........
** To say nothing of her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcPofgs7vSs cover of Locomotion]], which has been intermittantly stuck in my head for about a decade now.

*** Can you feel me on your stereo?
* "Ignition (Remix)" by the delightful R Kelly. "Sippin' on coke n' rum, I'm like so what 'm drunk, it's the freakin' weekend, baby I'm about to have me some fun." Ick, make it stop.
** Can I get a 'TOOT TOOT'? Can I get a 'BEEP BEEP'?

** Pretty much any Lady Gaga song qualifies.
*** Quite frankly, she proves the trope because this entry right here has caused ''all of her songs'' to be playing inside my head [[BeyondTheImpossible at once]]. And I'm a direhard classic rock snob.
* Lady Antebellum's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB7T3lJ3dZ4 Need You Now.]] Once those four piano notes get into your head, they will never come out again.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW5Y5Y8wcKU Lookin' for a Good Time]]" is a pretty serious ear-worm too, especially the up-down-up-down pattern on the chorus.
* Ladyhawke - "Paris is Burning" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1HDZNR9cY4 My heart is yearning, but Paris is burning, Paris is burning all night long...]]
* Ladytron's "Destroy Everthing You Touch". "What you touch / you don't feel / Do not know / what you steal..."
** And '17' "They only want you when your 17/When your 21 your no fun"
* Lots of songs by The Lancashire Hotpots; of course, it helps that they're usually [[GodSaveTheKing set to the tune of folk standards]] which belong on this page in their own right.
* La Roux. "Bulletproof". And I don't even ''like'' synth-pop.
* German Techno act Laserkraft 3d: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBjDZMJUduo It will never leave]]
* AvrilLavigne: Hey hey, you you, I don't like your girlfriend!

** Neil Cicierega seems to eat and breathe earworms. Other examples already on this very page include Toy Food, 123456 Pokemon, and the infamous Mysterious Ticking Noise. And that's not even including any of his album stuff. Any fan who has listened to a full album is guaranteed to get a song stuck in their head from reading any of the following lines:
--->There is no horizon I cannot set my eyes on
--->Nobody known my true identity
--->Nine out of ten sociopaths agree, you gotta see Hyakugojyuuichi
--->Kitten is angry, kitten is offended
--->You're too much (the longer that I wait the more you are)

** "Upside, inside-out! She's livin' la vida loca!" Apparently, that song being an ear worm is why Rolling Stone considered it annoying.
*** Not when [[{{Shrek}} Antonio Banderas is singing it]]. Still catchy, though.

** Shake It also qualifies.
* Mighty Mighty Bosstones gave us "The Impression that I get.", an ear worm which, for me, is triggered BY other Ear Worms.
* Malice Mizer, believe it or not, has turned out a few of these. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mo4qSy-jQ4 Illuminati]] comes to mind. (I'm linking to an amv because the PV for it is ''{{Nightmare Fuel Unleaded}}''.) Just ''try'' to get that carnival-style organ bit out of your head.
** I once looked at the top played list on my iPod and was actually surprised that Illuminati occupied the top slot. I was not surprised, however, that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F143kJea2tw Beast of Blood]] (the first song anyone ever hears by them anymore) occupied the second place slot.

* If you have heard Paul [=McCartney=]'s hits when they were hits, they may sneak back into your brain every so often. [[AnonymousMcCartneyfan I once got "Arrow Through Me"(!) as an Ear Worm]]. And enjoyed it.
-->"Ooh, baby, you couldn't have done a worse thing to me\\
If you had taken an arrow and drove it right through me\\
Oooooh..."

* Pick any Meat Loaf song, for example: ''LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL I'LL BE GONE WHEN THE MORNING CALLS!''.
** Anything by Steinman. Bonus points since these songs cannot be sung softly. I was once howling "IIIIII WANT MY MONEY BACK! Life is a lemon" while walking down the street.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_YjM4V4fc Let me sleep on it, baby baby let me sleep on it!]]
** Several songs from Hang Cool Teddy Bear. Running Away From Me has one of the catchiest choruses on that album.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KDO_yCYcuU "Peace Sells"]] by {{Megadeth}}. I finished up a RockBand session with my friends, and discovered that the whole group still had the opening bassline stuck in their heads. ''"Dun-dundun dun dun dun dun dundun..."''

* M.I.A.: "I fly like paper, get high like planes..."
** It doesn't help that every line in each verse is repeated before going on to the second part of the verse, which is repeated...it never ends!
** "All I wanna do is BANG-BANG-BANG-BANG and a CLICK CA-CHING and take your money..."
** M.I.A.'s discography is full of these, but "URAQT" is a particularly bad one. '''DIT-DIT-DIT ON YOUR MO-BILE PHONE'''
* From George Michael: "Cause I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith, faith, faith, ..."
** And LimpBizkit's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ei_FJWHXys cover]] is equally sticky.
** Not to mention "Last Christmas", at least in Sweden where it actually it's fairly popular to sing in Lucia processions and at the start of Christmas Break.
* Midnight Oil. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkGvk1rQBI How can we dance when our Earth is turning/How do we sleep while our beds are burning...]]
* Most of Mika's songs, Grace Kelly, Big Girls, and We Are Golden.
* Joni Mitchell - The Circle Game
** Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". Pick any recording of it (it's a popular cover song). The first episode of the TV show ''Now and Again'' used samples of the chorus as background music in pivotal scenes ("don't know what you got til it's gone"), which is part of the reason the show has managed to stick in the minds of fans, years later.
* Mindless Self Indulgence: "Faggot". I'VE, BEEN DENIED, ALL THE BEST, ULTRASEX.

* ''King of Spain'' by Moxy Fruvous. Remember that slower pizza's more luscious, 'cause the King of Spain never rushes!
** I occasionally hum a tune or barely-contextually belt out a line of one of their songs, to the chagrin of friends who have no interest in fantastic obscure Canadian folkapella. Some of their lines are beautiful instead of funny, though, such as Horseshoes:
--->''My sister Sue, and me were doing stunts with electric trains''\\
''She said she'd do my dishes so I handed her the reigns (handed her the reigns)''\\
''And she engineered a collision steered by a hand-eye protege''\\
''As my train set started burning, I heard my sister say:''\\
''Look straight at the coming disaster''
* Mozart's ''Rondo Alla Turca'' and ''Eine Kleine Nachtmusik''.
** Queen of the Night, from Mozart's ''The Magic Flute''. Making it much worse is that you don't possibly have a hope of singing along unless you're an absurdly high-voiced soprano or sucking helium, yet you'll ''want'' to.
* TheMisfits were quite good at making you sing horrifying lyrics over and over again.
** Ever hear Skulls? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLXEj4UowF8 go ahead and click]], if you want to sing about chopping little girls head's off all day...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSgaqreXrKE HATEBREEDERS WHOOAAAHOOOO!]]
** Well, I got somethin to say/I killed a baby today/And it doesn't matter much to me/as long as it's dead.
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCPwXb24a5U Cha-Cha Slide]] by Mr. C The Slide Man. Try and fail not to [[DanceSensation do the dance along with the music]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0x1yBiFiUw If you gots the poison, I gots the remedy...]]
* Münchener Freiheit (those guys who did the incredibly catchy ''Keeping The Dream Alive'') tend to turn out songs which are earworms, even to those (such as me) who don't understand a word of German. Nearly all the songs on ''Fantasie/Fantasy'' and ''Definitive Collection'' are earworms, including their cover of Bob Dylan's ''Baby Blue'' (in German).
** I had the chorus stuck in my head for six years. It did not help not knowing the language it was in. Listened to it three times in a row when I finally learnt its name. Still have it stuck, but know at least I can sing along.
* MyChemicalRomance. ''Blood''. That is all. (I once found myself teaching it to my [[CrowdSong entire summer camp]] after singing it one too many times in public. * twitchy twitch* )
** ...Give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough, so give them blood, blood, blllooooooOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHDDDDDD... *gasp*...I'M THE KINDA HUMAN WRECKAGE THATCHA LOVE!
** Anyone who's played Guitar Hero 2 will agree with me that Dead is an even bigger ear worm, and those that have played {{Burnout}} 3 will say I'm Not Okay (I Promise) is even bigger than ''that''.
** "Helena"..."So long and goodnight..."

All of the above will either cause you to start frantically reciting choruses over and over or loudly singing deceptively victorious-sounding tunes as you walk down the street.
* Massive Attack, especially the music riffs for 'Angel' and 'Teardrop'.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_QsCXm1vrk MONKEEY VER-SUS ROOOBOT]]. Very, very hard to stop singing this out loud.

* Nikki Yanofsky's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v0o27BPIIk I Believe]], the anthem of the Vancouver 2010 Winter OlympicGames. [[OverlyLongName Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium]] managed to get this song stuck in the head of nearly every Canadian during the Games by creating an instrumental version to play at the end of each commercial break. The conclusion of each break was announced with: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT_B3_d8ZeA DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / DUHDUHDA DUH DA DAAAAAA! / DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / BUH DUHDUH DUHDUHDUHDUHDUHDUH DADADA!!]] However, the song seemed to simply disappear from the heads of everyone, along with the rest of the Olympic spirit, following the closing of the Games at the beginning of March.
* [[{{NWA}} "Straight Outta Compton, crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube from the crew called Niggaz Wit Attitude, when I'm called off, I got a sawed-off, squeeze the trigger, and bodies get hauled off..."]]
* From Nelly: "It's gettin' hot in here! (Uh-huh!)/So take off all your clothes!"
* "99 Luftballons" by Nena
** Possibly made even more infectious by putting Goldfinger's English cover of it on the soundtrack to the North American version of ''GranTurismo 3''.
*** I fell in love with the song when I first heard it on the RocketPower tv movie "Race Across New Zealand." Then I found the ''original'' and I'm the only one of my friends who know it. I can still sing nearly the whole thing, word for word, because it's ALWAYS STUCK in my head.
*** I haven't listened to the song in at least a year, yet I can still remember all the lyrics. In German. Which I don't speak. And wouldn't know how to write properly. That's impressive. Luckily there are enough other ear worms eating my brain that it isn't terribly intrusive.
*** I just can't stop listening to every single version of that song that's out there!
*** I listen to the [[http://mp3.zing.vn/mp3/nghe-bai-hat/99-99-Love-Balloon-BAND-Nakanomori-BAND.IWZFAWA8.html Japanese version]] ALL THE TIME!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnNBIiaKC5A Weeeek by NewS]]. GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD! it also doesn't help that the dance for this song is a memetic mutation
* Go up to anybody who was into Christian popular music in the 90's and say, "[[NewsBoys SHINE!]]"
** Issabella was a belly dancer with a kleptomaniac's restraint
* Nightcore: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8thtWNsWEFg DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM - DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM]]... AAAAGHHH!
** For that matter, any nightcored (vocal song), ranging from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv7CN-BolEc 'No Cover Song']] , [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN29h0gvZ8g 'My Girl']] , etc. to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6KhYBcQCLw 'G-Get Up And Dance']].
* {{Nightwish}} mostly just goes for [[LargeHam completely over-the-top]] EpicRocking, but a few of their songs still manage to worm their way into your head and not let go:
** "How blind can you be/ don't you see/ you chose the long road/ but we'll be waiting. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoh4XPfOmhY BYE, BYE, BEAUTIFUL!"]]
** The chorus to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LheT-SvZM2A Erämaan Viimeinen.]] Most Nightwish fans know it by its instrumental name, Last of the Wilds, however it originally had lyrics. In Finnish. As soon as you learn the words, ''it will not leave your head''. For ''hours''.
** "Master! Apprentice! Heart born, seventh seeker! Warrior! Disciple! In me, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLW7wJvdFSI the Wishmaster! ]]"
*** ''That's'' what [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg5_mlQOsUQ they're]] [[{{Mondegreen}} really saying?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueiOqaSvHp0 I WISH I HAD AN ANGEL FOR ONE MOMENT OF LOVE/I WISH I HAD YOUR ANGEL TONIGHT!]]
** At one point, [[TroperOnAStickV2 this troper]] had the chorus from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S1yQ303OeI The Escapist]] stuck in his head for ''days''.
* Harry Nillson's "Coconut": You put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, you put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]], call the doctor, woke 'em up, said DOC-TAH! ...

** Acting stupid, is contagious! Here we are now, entertain us!
** As an old memoria, memoriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiia...
** HEY! WAIT! I GOT A NEW COMPLAINT!

** I love it when you call me [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ27AM3RTv8 big pop-pa]], throw your hands in the ay-er, if youse a true play-yer.
* Jerrod Niemann, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q0LE3gtUn8&feature=avmsc2 Lover, Lover]]. "Ohh, lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more~ Ohh, lover, lover lover..." It's one of those songs that just kinda... sits there in your head and plays a specific part over and over again.
* NickiMinaj. Much oh "Your Love's" chrous just consists of "Your love, your love yeah..."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:O]]
* "Elvira" by The Oak Ridge Boys. By the end of the song, I guarantee you'll be singing "giddy up ba oom papa oom papa mow mow" in the deepest voice you can muster.
* "[[{{Oasis}} And maybeeeeeeeee...you're gonna be the one that saves meeeeeeeee....and after aaaaaaaaaall...you're my wonderwaaaaaaaaaall...]]"
** Th [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vy1ueZf1WMQ 50s lounge singer]] version is even worse/better.

* TheOffspring has, beside "Why Don't You Get A Job" (already mentioned in the Beatles entry), "Come Out and Play" ([[ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFwkv14u3b4 YOU GOTTA KEEP 'EM SEPARATED!]]), "All I Want" ([[GrandTheftAutoEffect double for]] ''CrazyTaxi'' players), and "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)".
** "With a thousand lies and a good disguise, hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes..."
*** It's even worse if you have the "Dance, fuckers, dance" line stuck in your head, because then you can't sing it aloud without getting funny looks.
**** This is one of the few songs where the radio edit ''actually works''. Sing it right and it remains nicely rhythmic and doesn't sound like anything's missing.
** What about their song "One Fine Day"? That's one another that'll grow on you over time.
** CHANCES THROOOOOWN! NOTHING'S FREEEEEEEEEEE!
** ME AND MY OLD LADY, SUCK EACH OTHER DRY, DRY! (Heck, almost all of their songs are ear worms!)
* I have gotten in trouble more than once for singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jItz-uNjoZA Oingo Boingo's Little Girls]] out loud in public... More than once. "I love little girls, they make me feel so... good!"
** It's even more disturbing to hear ''Patrick Stewart'' singing that song. Thank you very much, ''AmericanDad''.
** "I was struck by lightning..." * sax* "walking down the street..."
* OK Go - "Here It Goes Again" * That song with the music video of the band members dancing on treadmills. "Here it goes here it goes here it goes again, oh hear it goes again, I shoulda known shoulda known shoulda known again, oh here it goes again!" You can see the video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTAAsCNK7RA here.]]
* Outkast's "Mrs. Jackson" will plague you with its chorus, the catchiest part of the song and coincidentally the only part that sticks in your head. Although sometimes instead it may just be a loop of "Forever... For''ever'' ever? For''ever'' ever?" lodged in your brain, well, forever.
** "Hey Ya!" is even worse.
*** Shake it like a [[{{Mondegreen}} corduroy ninja]]! (I witnessed the birth of that mondegreen.)

** This troper got some extremely weird looks from friends when she was singing it absent-mindedly before Katy Perry was famous. Bad earworm. Bad, bad earworm.
*** I have the album on which this song can be found, and find the next track, "Waking Up in Vegas", to be an even ''bigger'' earworm. Say what you will about the girl - she's good at catchy.
**** "Why are these lights so bright?/Did we get hitched last night?/Dressed up like Elvis/Why am I wearing your class ring?"
** There's also the gamergeek version, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7x_udKxwDc I Tanked A Boss]].
** OH! MY! GOD! I work at a store where we have XM Radio blaring all day. I've heard this song more times than I care to remember. Doesn't help that I also hang out at a radio station of all places.
** There's a Dark Knight version (can't seem to find a video) that I now sing instead of the actual lyrics, which go "I kissed TheJoker, and I liked it, I hope Harvey Dent don't mind it..."
** [[TromboneChild I started making up a version of that song]] to go with Dean and Castiel in Season 4: "I kissed an angel and I liked it/The taste of his holy water chapstick/I kissed an angel and I liked it/I hope my brother don't mind it..." (It doesn't quite fit, but it's still fun to sing.)
*** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=GB&hl=en-GB&v=RQ1U5OLKlls this]]: "I tortured souls and I liked it/Their screams of pain and anguish/I tortured souls just to try it/I hope my brother don't mind it..."
** Then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1cbQG_bf3U Good News Week version]], which throws in a Pussycat Dolls song and Gabriella Cilmi song for added earwormy goodness.
** Cobra Starship recorded a male version. "I kissed a boy, they liked it/Got all the honeys in the club excited..." Incidentally, Hot 'N Cold is terribly catchy, too.
** I tend to get addicted to songs- I'll hear it, then I'll play it over and over again, and I listened to 'Hot N Cold' 28 times in one afternoon. Which is a record, even for me.
** A good example (albeit, a badly sung one) is " I Killed A Girl" by cloudstrife34 using footage from {{Higurashi}},
** ...Or of course, the version by GT Ninja Squad describing Kira from {{Death Note}} : "[[http://www.imeem.com/people/7vNPt_w/music/AxuyigcB/light-yagami-i-killed-a-guy-and-i-liked-it/ I killed a guy and I liked it]]/but still this world is rotten/I killed a guy just to try it/ Just hope the cops don't mind it."

* "Puff the Magic Dragon lived by the sea..."
* I have seen many folks lamenting the catchy nature of a certain LizPhair song, and having to fight from singing it in public. This song? "Hot White Cum." ''Give it to me/don't give it away...''
* {{Pink}}. "Last to Know". Oh Lord, it's coming back into my head right now. "Why was I the last to know / that you weren't coming to my show..."

* {{Queen}}'s "We Will Rock You"
** And "Bohemian Rhapsody."
*** I was in a line at an amusement park and someone started humming that. It ended with the entire line singing it out loud.
**** I once(AnimeBoston '09) heard this song, very softly, on the AnimeBoston background radio that gets drowned out later in the day. I was sitting waiting for the dealer's room to open, and suddenly the people cosplaying Amaterasu and two Time Owl-things sitting waiting also started singing, and I realized I had started to. We ended up singing it until they opened the room ten minutes early out of annoyance. I think it was about a half-hour or so, no less than, though. I kept running into them and sometimes one would be singing.
*** I once had the middle part of that song (Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango) stuck in my head for three days straight.
*** I have had it stuck in my head for about a year now. It's an on and off thing. Usually, I have to listen to it like twice a day and I'll get sick of it for that day so I will not think about it. It's almost gone.

* RascalFlatts' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R71mctamUY Bob That Head]]." It's a stupid song, but [[{{Twentington}} This Troper]] would easily file it under GuiltyPleasures for its ear-worm status alone.
* Ravel's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8po7FZonP-I Bolero]]'' is ''maddening'' in this way: on one hand it's essentially the same bit being done over and over again for about 15 minutes, but after about 8-10 minutes it's built to an epic and inspiring state of pure aural ''awesome''.
* The Swedish group The Real Group has their song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF6FX0gnrZQ I Sing, You Sing]]''. This one is also an example of a song ''about'' an earworm as the following verse shows:
-->''I met a melody today\\
It didn't ask if it could stay\\
Now it even wants share my bed\\
You know at first it was OK\\
But as it never goes away\\
It drives me insane I almost wish I were dead\\
I can't get the melody out of my head''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh6Oz-L156c Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh...]]
* RedHotChiliPeppers' "Can't Stop". Mostly that bassline.
** "Dream of californication..."
** "I like pleasure spiked with pain, and music is my aeroplane, is my aeroplane..."
** "California rest in peace, simultaneous release..."
** "If you see me getting high, knock me down, I'm not larger than life..."
** "Fight like a brave (LIKE A BRAVE)! Don't be a slave (NO SLAVE)!"
* Reel Big Fish: "Kiss me ONCE! Kiss me TWICE! Come on, pretty baby, kiss me deadly!"
** Also their cover of Take On Me.
* An amazingly infectious pop punk song, Face Down, by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus: "Do you feel like a man / When you push her around / Do you feel better now? / As she falls to the ground". It's known to leach into your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD5Cu3R3030 Rednex, "Cotton-Eyed Joe."]] "'Fit hadn't been for Cotton-Eyed Joe / I'd been married a long time 'go / Where didja come from, where didja go / Where didja come from, Cotton-Eyed Joe..."
* [[{{REM}} R.E.M.]]: Stand in the place where you live (now face north), think about direction, wonder why you haven't before... If the song doesn't burn itself into your mind, the dancing in the video will.

** There exists a HarryPotter {{Shipping}} fan-vid (to which I have, perhaps mercifully, mislaid the link) that uses this song as an accompaniment to the [[FoeYay Hermione/Draco ship]], perhaps because of the TheyAllSaidWeNeverCouldBeHappy theme of the (Polish) lyrics. ("Let Them Say This Isn't Love", an English translation of the song's title, was the original working title of that page for a reason.) It managed to achieve the impossible by making this godawful ship somewhat bearable, then (inevitably) got stuck in my head. And now won't go away.

You'd never think it could possibly work) but it is just so damn catchy, especially the chorus ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdkBs0VCSX0 RA-RA-RASPUTIN, Lover of the Russian queen...]]''.

** [[NoSoup4Me I can attest to this with gusto]]. This song has been in my head since I were four years old. Anytime there's a lull in conversation I can be heard humming it. I'm considering suicide, if my friends don't kill me first.

[[folder:W]]
* "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses. Yes, as a Christmas song, it only gets radio play a couple months out of the year, but it's still liable to suddenly pop in your head for no good reason in, say, mid-July. And of course the same band gave us the equally earwormy "I Know What Boys Like".
** After working in a retail establishment where this song was played between two and four times a day for the entire month of December, I no longer fear Hell.
* TomWaits "I Like My Town...with a little drop of, poison"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOxlFJbyl94 We sail tonight for Singapore, we're all as mad as hatters here...]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyef-BItce8 Boom Boom Acka lacka Boom Boom]], from Was (Not Was). I heard it once. Now it's whenever my mind goes blank. (Try meditating with that song in your head.)
* War: "All. My. Friends. Know the low rider. Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah waaaah!"
** So, we all agree that "Low Rider" is infinitely more awesome than "Why Can't We Be Friends?"
*** War's Ear Worms are pretty potent in general. If keyboardist Lonnie Jordan is to be believed, Bob Marley himself found the horn riff from "Slippin' into Darkness" so catchy he turned it into the main hook for "Get Up, Stand Up."
*** Interestingly, this Troper uses "Low Rider" as a cure for OTHER Ear Worms.
*** Also, "The Cisco Kid... waaaaas a frieeened of miii-iine..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP21zUrMh7s Eleven Saints]] by Jason Webley. Man oh man, what's that guy got in his hand/ it's a egg, it's a spoon, it's a snapshot of the moon~

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9XhvS9z8wE Run, baby, run...]]
* {{Weezer}} matches their simple,catchy tunes and rocking choruses to some memorable videos,creating very persistent {{Ear Worm}}s; "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muP9eH2p2PI Pork and Beans]]" is the strongest yet,because its video references a hurricane of ''other'' memes off YouTube. I have had nothing else in my head for five days.
** God''dammit'' I just need to ''think'' of the first notes of that guitar riff, and then it's stuck in my head too. Doo. Doodoo doo doo. Doodoo. Wah!
** What's with these HOM-ies dissing my girl? Why do they got-ta front? What did we Ev-er do to these guys, that made them SO vi-o-lent?

** "Put your head in the microwave and give yourself a tan..."
** "Doooon't download this so-ong!"
** "You can use your ESP to learn to play guitar! ''Midnight Star'', I wanna know, I wanna know!"
** "I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane with a rabid wolverine in my underwear when suddenly..."
** The polka medleys. All of them. Take bits and pieces from a whole bunch of songs that are already earwormy in and of themselves, and add infectiously peppy accordion music. The combination is lethal.
** Never had a date, that you couldn't inflate... and you smell repulsive too...
** That's your horoscope for today! Yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah! That's your horoscope for today!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmK1agiw1wE VIRUS ALERT!]]. Hoo boy.

* KanyeWest: Now I ain't sayin' she a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU13MRtSD7E gold digger]], but she ain't messin' with no broke- broke- ah....
* ''Your Woman'' by White Town. It strikes me as odd that a song about a girl ditching a guy because he's an idiot (the song is sung by a male, and the most common theory about the gender switch in the lyrics is that he's sarcastically reading a Dear John letter) can become so catchy... to a man.
* "SMOKE! SMOKE! SMOKE! (THAT CIGARETTE)" by Tex Williams. also know as that catchy song at the start of ThankYouForSmoking
* "They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no..." (Amy Winehouse)
* The German ''a cappella'' group Wiseguys has a song entitled "Ohrwurm" about one of these songs. The song itself doubles as one.

* ''Chacarron Macarron'' by La Yanta is so strange and senselessly atonal, it becomes impossibly catchy.
** Why...why would you do such a thing...For crying out loud, I just stopped reacting to that a year ago...
* Yellow Magic Orchestra's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk6o4GWFIV8 Rydeen]]. Heck, anything by YMO.

* "Catholic Girls" by FrankZappa. The perfect combination of repetitive lyrics and a catchy tune ensures that it gets stuck in my head whenever I so much as ''think'' about it.
** Oh man, you think Catholic Girls is an earworm? Well, let me tell you something. Don't know much about dancin', that's why I got this song. One of my legs is shorter than the other and both of my feets too long...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izQB2-Kmiic In the Year 2525]] by duo Zager and Evans. The cadence of the lyrics combined with dark imagery of the future is unusual, particularly for a pop song of the 1960s.
* I feel it work, you know, I feel it in bed. Can't get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmwG8WWmR8A The Zutons' "Pressure Point"]] outta my head...
* Anyone here fans of Norwegian singer Bertine Zetlitz? Some of her songs are kinda catchy, for example her single "Girl like you". (Magical, mystical, life's a ball, never had a girl like you...)
** Another of my favourites is another one of her singles, "Twisted little star". (Will you still remember, twisted little star, darker shining, silently surrender, twisted little smile, twisted's gonna last a while...)
* "In New York, the concrete jungle where dreams are made, there's nothin you can't do..."

* That stupid barking-dog Jingle Bells that every half-assed radio station feels they have to whip out every Christmas.
** It's worse than that. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jingle_Cats Jingle Cats was the original.]] And it's just cats meowing Christmas themes. And they tend to be bigger [[EarWorm Ear Worms]] than the songs they're based on. They even have [[http://www.youtube.com/user/meowychristmas their own Youtube account.]]
* If you live in Recife, then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgu9OzNS1Fk this song]] will never leave your head.
** ''Vem minha gatinha, venha meu amor, venha minha amaaaaada! Vamos fazer amor em cima da caasa!!''
** While we're in Brazil, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn1w4gr_V08 Eu Quero Ver o Oco]]" by hardcore band Raimundos manages to be heavy and catchy.
* I have ''no idea'' where this goes, but it's the EarWorm that has lead a REIGN OF TERROR on my school, and it must be brought to public attention: "Frére Jacques, frére Jacques, Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous? Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines! Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong." Especially as I suck at French and don't know the words, I'm just making sounds. I copied that from TheOtherWiki.
* ''Anything'' from the "Wall of Sound" of TheFifties and TheSixties. Phil Spector knew what he was doing [[strike: before]] even while he [[strike: went]] was going insane. On reading Volume 4 of ''{{Monster}}'', where a villain took his nickname from "Be My Baby", that song ''refused'' to leave my head. That was just from a ''mention'' of the damn thing!
** "Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley long enough, ain't no river wide enough..."
* Dutch novelty hit "Er staat een paard in de gang" ("There's a horse in the hall") has been stuck in my head for the past month. I'm now trying to drive it out forcibly. With Benny Lava.
** Let me stick another one in there: "Ziet 'em goan, ziet 'em goan, me zen basketsloefkes oan" (To much dialect and to... 'strange' to put it in English)
* Pick a song from the 80s. ANY song. Doubly so if IT'S a one hit wonder.
* Nyan-nyan, nyan-nyan, Nihao, nyan, GORGEOUS, DELICIOUS, DELICULTURE!
* "I always flirt with death..." Its been in my head for MONTHS. Yes, all of it. Even the guitar solo? ESPECIALLY the guitar solo.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoGuoXuLmsk "Banana Man", by Tally Hall.]] You're welcome.
--->Do you see banana man / hopping jumping 'cross the white-hot sand? / Here he come with some for me / freshly pick'd from banana tree.
** Speaking of, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3ZAGBL6UBA it's peanut-butter jelly time!]]
* I, for reasons unknown to myself, get abrasive drum n' bass stuck in my head. A few examples: Aphex Twin's Ventolin, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQbH_FOQR1o Venetian Snare's Mutant Cunt Sniffer]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyw-_JxwFPY Squarepusher's Steinbolt.]]
** Speaking of Venetian Snares, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHDFMMvsT_k Bebikukorica Nigiri]] has been stuck in my head lately.
* Looking for the Perfect Beat. Beat-beat-beat-beat... ''DO DO DO DO DO! * SLAM* DO DO DO DO...'''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq38_MFTEm0 Time. Time, Time... TIME! TIME TO UNDER-STAND THE HORROR!!]]
* "Insomnia" by the lesser-known band [[http://www.louandpeter.com Lou and Peter Berryman]] is both about these and one of these (if only because of repetition). Although the full effect can't be experienced without hearing the song at least once, go ahead and look at the lyrics (under "Content")
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYALZWFfPO0 Oh, Mandy]], oh, Mandy, so killing, oh, Mandy...''
* Ever find yourself singing ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTc6g0ywnRc Hubba Hubba Zoot Zoot]]'' days after you played it? Despite the fact that you can't make out if the lyrics are ''words'' or merely ''odd sound combinations''?
* Oooh, aaah, oooh, aaah, oooh, aaah, get, get, get away, now...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmFDPFKTOvk "Spanish Flea"]] is a classic EarWorm.
* If you've ever heard the beginning of the song [[http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=g7Cdk8DQAGI Pirates by Bullets and Octane]], it won't leave your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBj1mTyGDgA Ejo, Captain Jack! (Ejo, Captain Jack!)]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3j2gAO7Jy0 Bring me back to the railroad track! (Bring me back to the railroad track!)]]
** When RadioactiveZombie was in Sea Cadet boot camp, this was the battalion-wide earworm. ''Put that rifle in my hand...'
* [[DarkInsanity13 Japanese music as a whole for me]]. Really. She doesn't care that she can't understand most of it, ''it just won't leave her freakin' head.''
* Koumi Hirose (of Cardcaptor Sakura fame) has one from her song titled "Promise". It's named 'Geddan'... because it starts at the refrain with the words "GET! DOWN!". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ELzjRHPnUs This is one Touhou-related example.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omJ4t-h_CQI Daite Senorita]], Yamashita Tomohisa. I have lost count of how many times its played in my head. Damn good song, though.
** Also by Yamashita Tomohisa and Kamenashi Kazuya is their song as the temporary J-pop duo Shuji to Akira, known as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDoQhUQ75pg Seishun Amigo]]. I have had it stuck on repeat in my head for 3 years now, to the point where it has become a mental screensaver.
* If you can manage not to get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YM6E4ZwrV4 Mayonaka no Shadow Boy]] by Hey! Say! JUMP stuck in your head, I commend you for being the pretty much the only one.
* I defy anyone to listen to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akMR7erPCtU Kitto Daijoubu]] by Arashi all the way through and not end up with it stuck in their heads
** Same goes for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzkgyo7S4pk&feature=related Sakura Sake.]]
*** Not to mention Matsumoto Jun's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmZwZcyjn1w Yabai-Yabai-Yabai.]]
* [[HelloProject Morning Musume]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXhk_9kgy4w "Happy Summer Wedding"]] "Ba-da-pa-da, ba-da-pa-da, ba-da-pa-da-pa-pa, ''hai!''"
* [[TheStray Oh, it hit me ''long'' before that]]. For that matter, a lot of surfing music is this way. Just look at ''Misirlou'' (used as the title of Pulp Fiction) and ''Soy Bomb'' (used in GuitarHero). Surf music seems to eat and breathe this trope...

** Thou shall not make repetitive, generic music.
* For some reason, Dan Fogelberg's "Run For The Roses" (a sweet, pretty, TearJerker ballad about the life of a Kentucky Derby racehorse): "Born in the valley/And raised in the trees/Of western Kentucky/On wobbly knees/With Mama beside you to help you along,/You'll soon be a-growin' up strong..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZQkvu9OjHo This]] accursed song is the most annoying song known to humanity. Years after first hearing it, I am ''still'' possessed with the urge to break out screaming "MY BOYFRIEND! HE LOVES ME! HE LOVES ME VERY MUCH! MY BOYFRIEND! HE'S SPECIAL! WE ALWAYS KEEP IN TOUCH! HE'S FUNNY! MY HONEY! HE LOVES ME VERY MUCH! MY BOYFRIEND, SO FINE!". This gets me REALLY weird looks. I may be gay, but it's ''really'' not helping his attempts to stay in the closet.
* "Heads, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes..."

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfHD33flWaQ "Under my skin, there's a fire burning, deep down inside there is loooove..."]] Though not so much that part as the StupidStatementDanceMix opening, which sounds so like nothing on Earth that when I first heard it, I initially assumed it to be a J-pop song. (The fact that it was paired with anime pictures didn't help.)
* Old Zakk Wylde's song has [[http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=vExXSh_FPfA a very catchy banjo intro]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8BWBn26bX0 That boy needs therapy.]] Tell me Frontier Psychiatrist isn't the biggest earmworm ever?
* Runnin through the monsoon, beyond the world...
** For that matter, the obnoxious talk show host's parody of it ... I can't seem to find a link.
** This gets really irritating with Tokio Hotel when you listen to some of their early German work from back when they were younger, because you can't sing along because you ''can't pronounce the words''.
* While we're going international, we can't neglect [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNTgkb_8R7g this]] beauty by Versailles. That guitar will never leave.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pt-NvcuDVBc This]]. And it's got a horrible name, to boot.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0I8_bOAuso O Fortuna]]'' from Orff's "Carmina Burana."
* An [[http://www.backyardgardener.com/loowit/song/song71.html absolutely nonsensical]] little work-song-turned-campfire-ditty that I have heard spelled at least two different ways. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6c8nPUbLvU Here]] is a high-school choir singing it.
* "Je Veux te Voir" by YELLE ({{NSFW}}, especially for the bilingual).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvIw5ZqC1ms "Alright now fellas,"]] "YEAH!" "Now what's cooler than bein' cool?" "ICE COLD!"
* For me there are quite a few country music songs that are like this, including but not limited to the following
** Why Haven't I Heard From You (1994)
** Bop (1985)
** Gonna Take A Lot Of River (1987)
* Sugar, do do do do do do, oh, honey honey.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kro-uzMgL0 "Give Me Just A Little More Time" by The Chairmen Of The Board]] is enough of an earworm on it's own, but [[http://daytrotter.com/article/1607/spinto-band-encore The Spinto Band's cover]] turns it into three earworms at once by combining it with "Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani and "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy, both of which share the same chords.
* I find that songs with "na na na" hooks get stuck in his head a lot, such as Hey Jude, Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye, Land of a Thousand Dances, Centerfold, Katamari on the Rocks, E-Pro, Hush...
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AnYshBEOYc L'Arlesienne: Prelude]]'' (sorry, the sound quality isn't the best)
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSVEC_DbhL8 Kuutamolla]]'' The phrase 'Se ei mee pois', is Finnish for 'It won't go away'.
* Cadence calls. Those lovely little ditties that people in the armed forces run (sorry, double-time) to. Simple, repetitive, with motivating and/or amusing lyrics - in other words, the perfect earworms.
** "Everywhere We Go" (most of you know it as the stadium song from ''Remember The Titans'')
** "My Grandmama Was 91"
** "Ain't No Use In Looking Down"
* Sleeping is giving in, no matter what the time is... sleeping is giving in, so lift your heavy eyelids! Damn you, Arcade Fire...
* Almost anything by Röyksopp. Their latest track, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmcPeuf5aXo "Happy Up Here"]], is especially addictive (and the music video rocks too).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnMjU8qNi6s HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY...]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6MsGsNkFqI "William Howard Taft"]]. Luckily it can be cured by being infected by a different song.
* The Deep Dance 50 - ''55 minutes'' of 90s dance megamix (incorporating many of the earworms mentioned above). Add to that a similarly awesome AMV and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MkwcOSG2XA Animix]].
* Windmills Of Your Mind lampshades itself.
* The Popcorn Song found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N4ckFN96-k here]]. I find this ear worm useful to blocking out other ear worms.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wsCZ7Ft_Z8 You put the boom boom into my heart ~ You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts ~ JITTERBUG into my brain ~ It goes a bang bang bang 'til my feet do the same ~ But something's buggin' me, something ain't right ~ My best friend told me what you did last night ~ You left sleepin' in my bed ~ I was dreamin', but I should have been with you instead ~ Wake me up before you go-go ~ Don't leave me hangin' on like a yo-yo...]]

* Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoN6XfyQsr4 Thou Shalt Always Kill]]". Contains a LampshadeHanging with "Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music" - repeated four times.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PP1HEFlkdY And we can build this dream forever/standing strong forever/nothing's gonna stop us now...]]
* "Let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the...* ching ching* ...FLOOOOORRRRR..." Used as the theme for about a gazillion wrestling pay-per-views...
* Ai yai yai, I'm your little butterfly. Green, black, and blue make the colors in the sky...
* A disturbing number of chiptunes are highly ear wormy, [[YourMileageMayVary if you're in to that sort of thing]]. Examples of ear worms are:
** Dma-SC's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hdhyfNsZRo Visitors from Dreams]], from {{Darwinia}}
** Most songs by Anamanaguchi, particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8FXk8zoMMo Power Supply]].
** Trash80's B(a)it and Switch.
* {{Demoscene}} music tends to have its share of Ear Worms, too.
* Mekon/Röyksopp's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1C7F6Px25g&fmt=18 Please Stay remix/Don't Go]], sometimes played at TV sporting event football venues.
** or mostly anything by Röyksopp for that matter: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl4rwMZWATs&fmt=18 Eple]] (which was used as an Apple start up) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmcPeuf5aXo Happy Up There]]
* I have loads of these:
** Probably a lesser known example, but "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvnHtO6daQM Right About Now! The Funk Soul Brother!]]"
*** Damn that song and Digimon for throwing it into their movie. I still dig out the soundtrack to that bloody thing to listen to all the Ear worms on it.
** Crazy Frog's version of Axel F
** The [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel parade theme]] from Paprika, of all things. Here it is in ITS terrifying(ly addictive) glory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4doHF0dIuh0
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cCI_XDQWb0 If you do not know this song,]] you need to listen to more music.
** Once I ran to you ... now I run from you ... this tainted love you've given ... I give you all a boy could give you ... take my tears and that's not nearly ALL!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LA-AvBjBm5k "If I Only Had a Brain"]] by MC 900ft Jesus. Not even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROwwYeIbHcA Beavis & Butt-Head]] could resist it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnjoIkq4y7s Fantastic Cat.]] The sheer weirdness, and pidgin English lyrics make it even more so.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w45Qi7Nki54 Feeeeeeed my fiii-iiiire]], let me put some dust on your fa-ace. Even non-German speakers are affected by Eisbrecher.
* "Living in the limelight, the universal dream, for those who wish to see..."
* Several of {{Dong Bang Shin Ki}}'s songs (both the Korean and Japanese ones) are pretty persistant Ear Worms. Some of the best examples are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtJS32n6LNQ Mirotic]] (Woah~oh~oh!), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZxK60hbX-s Rising Sun]] (RISING SUUUUUUUUUUUN!), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usF2ihdYIj8 Wrong Number]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2MiiASgig0 Triangle]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5mwsRSeFvs Hug]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im2ynMIfIjM Hey!(Don't bring me down)]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAy-VZANe3Y Survivor]] (oh gods, I can't stop singing "Ima daremo ga Sur~vi~v~o~r!")
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnzHtm1jhL4 They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!!!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TXAJJFljks Ho-Ho Hee-Hee, to the FUNNY FARM! Where LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL ALL THE TIME!!!]]
* I don't want to talk to you, I just want bang bang bang! I don't want to know your name, I just want bang bang bang! I don't want to meet your mom, I just want bang bang bang!
* "I know it's up for me, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOCRPrEAVxU if you steal my sunshine!"]] For me, it's largely just the chorus, the looped sample of "More More More", and, for some reason, the line "L-A-T-E-R that week", but that arguably makes it worse.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=488YxXFIpz8 THIS!!!]] "Caipirinha, caipirinha..."
* "It's no surprise to me, I am my own worst enemy. 'Cause every now and then I kick the livin' shit outta me."
* "I don't wanna work! I wanna bang on the drum all day! I don't wanna play! I just wanna bang on the drum all day!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il594GeNnpo Faggoty Attention]] by Adam Joseph. It repeats in your head over and over ''and over and over again''.
* I'm your Tamagotchi, so happy that you love me, and we should be together, forever and forever!
* They call us problem child, We spent our lives on trials, WE ARE THE YOUTH GONE WILD
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSxoKQ_sWYY I can't say no to you/Shouldn't let you torture me so sweetly...]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo-RJ_Z5odI Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat/Gonna take a lot of river all the live long day/ Gonna take the Mississippi, the Monongahela and the Ohio/Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away]]
* But you don't want me any more, how can it be? Look what you've done to me! Oh, oh!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4aqM_wu6Ns Jozin! Z bazin!]]
** Oh, there's even [[http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/337791 a metal cover]] (by Dawid Mika).
* Why! Do! You! ''Build'' me up (build me up), ''but''tercup, baby, just to ''let'' me down (let me down) and jerk me around?
** While we're on the Motown kick, how about "Heat Wave"?
* Push it to the limit!
* Marlene watches from the wall, her mocking smile says it all, she records the rise and fall of every soldier passing. But the only soldier now is me, I'm fighting things I cannot see, I think it's called my destiny but I am changing. Marlene on the wall.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfEE_nYehZ8 Dragostea Din Tei, better known as Numa Numa.]] Full feckin' stop.
* Fight the Power! Fight the power, fight the power! Fight the power, fight the power! Fight the power! We got to fight the powers that be!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WIeEuRtEW8 WELCOME TO THE TERRORDOME!]]
* Daisy Bell. Why, oh why is this song so catchy?! I've had it running in my head for a long while now. If it keeps up... I'm going to go insane... [[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey My mind is going... I can feel it...]]
* The guitar riff underlying Creme's "Politician".
** Speaking of Ear Worm-y riffs, how about the ''diabolical'' guitar in "Plug in Baby"?
* Biffy Clyro's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm5PFIRdPfQ ''Mountains'']] is one. Toss up between the chorus of '''"I AM A MOUNTAIN, I AM THE SEA, YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME!!!"''' or the bit after the second chorus with the cool piano in the background; ''"Cos you tear us apart / With all the things you don't like / You can't understand / That I won't leave / 'Til we're finished here / And then you'll find out / Where it all went wrong."'' [[MrBrownstone I can't stop hearing it several times a day]], starting from waking up in the morning. Even after hearing it on loop hundreds of times and learning how to play the guitar parts and sing the lead vocals at the same time, also on loop. It would be NightmareFuel if it weren't for the fact that I still love the song and thinks it is one of the best rock tracks ever made.

* Cool for Cats. DAMN YOU, SQUEEZE!
* Those who have heard the Ievan Polka know what I am talking about when I say "HELP!!!"
* Mistabishi - "Printer Jam". Built around the screeching sound of a dot-matrix printer.
* Musician El Guincho is very fond of these, exhibits A and B: [[http://www.last.fm/music/El+ Guincho/_/Antillas here]] and [[http://www.last.fm/music/El+ Guincho/_/Kalise here]]
* The band The Illuminoids has the tendency to mashup earworms TOGETHER, which tends to make them even catchier. Which is somewhat amusing when they mix the rolling stones, nirvana, and some recent hip-hop song together.
* I don't know about y'all, but I'm beginning to regret him ever getting a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8FXuvuCCxw brand new pigbag]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HDM3eYp4KQ As we go on... we remember...]] So cheesy. So overdone. SO CATCHY!
* For Flemish tropers: Samson en Gert songs. Especially their earlier ones. "Dit is de Samsonrock/De Samsonrock/die dansen alle honden in hun hondenhok!"
* The daughtry's 'I got over you' don't have a link to the song but damn if those chorus lyrics don't stick in your head.
* [[DanceDanceRevolution Sweet little bumblebee, ]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cw3-nHh-NY I know what you want from me (doot doo doo doo doo da da)]]
* "I always ''turn the car around''..."
* The abominable "Scotty Doesn't Know" has haunted me. I do not like heavily sexual music in most cases, ''especially'' when it's that descriptive and it's about cheating. This led to some uncomfortable moments.
** I understand that opinion, but after seeing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dldH3_K8haE& this]] Star Trek vid, can find nothing but lols anymore.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g7fZFSMQDs "This flea is you and I, it's a bad thing, but a little thing, but a little thing..."]]
** From the same group: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PDl2IAlluc&feature=response_watch&fmt=18 "Electronics, electronics, moving with light..."]]
* Say what you will about Ice-T's notorious song Cop Killer, but once you've heard it...."COP KILLAH! Bettah you than MEEE! COP KILLAH! FUCK POLICE BRUTALITY!" It just won't ''freakin' '''leave!'''''
* Any project involving Mike Patton that isn't Faith No More (or maybe Peeping Tom) doesn't seem like a likely source for earworms, but then somehow there's the MadnessMantra style chorus of Tomahawk's "Laredo": "The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river! The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n371zCCYpts YOU'RE A SHARK]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tL86Qqn0jE MAKIN' UP A SONG ABOUT COOOORALIIINE~!]] Oh, {{Coraline}}. Coraline, Coraline, Coraline.
* Any of the songs from the musical adaption of ReeferMadness. Oh, good lord. That movie is One Ear Worm after another.
* I'd like to nominate [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82RWZjmmXBc EXEC_PAJA/.#Misya extracting]]. I think it's a great song, but do you know how ''annoying'' it is to have a song stuck in your head when you can't even understand the language it's sung in? For over a month? With no sign of it leaving any time soon?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHcVU5cGUNE Stamp On the Ground]] is certainly ear-worm worthy. Listen to it all the way through twice, and try to deny it.
* Dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pUM2J1JR7w KAN GUO LAAAIIII]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tk4gRBgDQw Breaker one-nine, this here's Rubber Duck...]]

* Dunno if this is already on here but: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JM-FzoFq7I WE LIKE TO PAHTY! WE LIKE, WE LIKE TO PAHTY!]]
* I have recently discovered the Ear Worm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgiXGELjbc A Glorious Dawn]]
* "One, is the loneliest number there ever was...", and "Du nuh du nuh du nuh du na na na na nuh... when you're strange..." (Three Dog Night "The Loneliest Number", and Echo and the Bunnymen "People Are Strange".)
** The original "People Are Strange", by The Doors, is one in its own right.
* Canadian Artists are particularly horrible about this. Besides Moe Clark and Nelly Furtado, listed above, main offenders here.
** Gimme Sympathy by Metric has lived in my head for days, and it's my most played song on iTunes.
** 1 2 3 4 by Feist. Oh lord. Good luck if this gets in there.
** "[[AlanisMorissette And I'm here, to remind you of the cross I bear that you gave to me... you, you, you, oughta know!]]"
* Pretty much ''any'' song that repeats the same words over and over again. Example, "The Space Between" by Dave Matthews. Bonus points if the repeated words are NOT the song title. Example, [[strike: "Some People"]] "If I Ain't Got You" by AliciaKeys.
* What's that coming over the hill? Is it a monster? Is it a monsteeeeeeeer?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2qtMAqelSg "What the hell am I doing Drinking in LA at twenty-six...?"]]
* Songs from childhood like:
** John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
** I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee
** Found a Peanut
* Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5C6X9vOEkU Banana Phone!]] It will drive you bananas.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4wW9PjDf1s We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful]]. Am I the only one who thinks this is cursedly catchy? It was so catchy just reading this page today it randomly popped into my head. I have no idea why.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo7Sng5Jeb0&fmt=18 I'm bringing Paxil back.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nabYYdQkS58 Katyusha]]. What? There's a ''reason'' it's one of the two (or three, if you want to count Korobeiniki) most-recognisably Russian songs that exist.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tntA_4IoxbE White Army, Black Baron]] 'nuff said.
* Living miles, miles away from Denmark apparently doesn't prevent you from staying awake 24 hours just because you keep hearing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsMgRMmusw4 Der- Der- Der party i provinseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!!!!]] in your head.
* Any sort of classic western ditty. Clementine ("Oh my darlin, oh my darlin, oh my ''darlin'' Clementine! You are lost and gone forever, [[LyricalDissonance dreadful sorry, Clementine!]]") and "I've Been Workin' On the Railroad" are particularly catchy.
* The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK5XBaslNd0 Song of the Volga Boatmen]]'' is a Russian folk song that's become synonymous for laborous toiling and the RedScare alike, though cases of the latter have nosedived since the end of the cold war.

** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1MMoZ-DLlY My First Kiss]]" is equally catchy. "She will never get enough, once she gets a little touch, if I had it my way, you know that I'd make you say 'Oohoooooooohh, oohoooooh'!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIRW_elc-rY Lollipop]]by 2NE1 featuring Big Bang. Even if you don't understand Korean, it doesn't take much for "Lolli- lolli- lollipop, ohhh lollipop- pop!" to lodge itself firmly in your earholes.
** Anything by 2NE1, especially their new stuff. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuNbqWQt0l0 Clap Your Hands]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ihi_kJJj_8A&feature=fvwk Can't Nobody]] in particular.

* Anything by {{ABBA}}, but especially "Take a Chance on Me." They all have fast, driving beats and light, simple lyrics that just ricochet around your brain.
** "Take a Chance on Me" will never be the same after you put this particular [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfViON4mSAw imagery]] to it. And it becomes both an ear and eye-worm.
** ''Gimme Gimme Gimme'', dangit.
*** The worst part about that song: I cannot possibly sing along with it when its stuck in my head. A guy as big as me singing "Gimme, gimme, gimme a man after midnight" just draws strange looks.
** "My my! At Waterloo Napoleon did surrender, oh yeah! And I have met my destiny in quite a sim'lar way... the history book on the shelf, is always repeating itseeeeeelf!!!" Dammit.

* [[{{ACDC}} AC/DC's]] songs are easy to earworm, thanks to their repeating choruses.
** In their own words, they've been doing the same song for the whole of their career. So the earworms can build up on each other.
** "I'm on the HIGHWAY TO HELL! On the HIGHWAY TO HELL!"
** "It's a LONG WAY to the TOP if you wanna ROCK AND ROLL..."
** But WE'VE got the BIGGEST... BALLS OF THEM ALL!
** Try getting the riff from "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXaZmY52gHM Back in Black]]" out of your head. You can't, can you?
** [[ThisIsSparta T! N! T!]] It's dynamite!

* I saw the sign, and it opened up my mind. Now I can't get that damn Ace of Base song out of my mind.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YiKZJar-lk "Man in the Box"]] by AliceInChains is a great song but it is impossible to get out of your head. That opening guitar riff makes it worse.

** [[Tropers/GilgameshKun I]] tend not to have much interest in 1970s disco, but I am painfully glued to the 7-minute extended version of this song such that it's a permanent feature of my house genre playlist.

Put your ass in the air, move around like you don't care." Repeat for three minutes, set to a catchy techno beat, and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32oU8YSFR8E this]]. It's easily {{Mondegreen}}ed as "Put giraffes in the air," which means you can also have a ''visual'' that won't leave your head.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPo9ISQpzvM One Week]] by Barenaked Ladies. It took weeks of this song getting overplayed on the radio before everyone actually figured out the lyrics, but they can all still sing the song word for word when it gets stuck in their head again even though it's pretty old. College humor even did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsMGjCXG0c0 parody song about it]] just to get it stuck in everyones heads again.

* An earworm from TheBeatles: ''We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine...''
** I hear [[BetterThanCanon a different version]] which her boyfriend wrote: "We all live in a yellow submarine, we hate the stupid thing, we wanna paint it green..."
*** By extension, any of a bazillion songs that use the same highly versatile tune with different lyrics. Football (soccer) fans are fond of this - the official anthem of the Polish club Lech Poznan is one such example of many.

*** Any song by The Beatles is likely to get stuck in your head, when you really think about it.

*** The opening from that sounded to my ears remarkably similar to the DrMario theme, and I now wonder if that's where Nintendo got it from. Of course, upon realizing this I had to go listen to it again - or more specifically this [[TearJerker terribly sad]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etw3aSumBEU version]] - and almost cried upon doing so.
** "Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on..." It would be bad enough if it was just that, but I get stuck with those words set to the tune of TheOffspring's "Why Don't You Get A Job?" Doubly catchy!
*** This is the only thing ''keeping'' Ob-la-di Ob-la-da from getting stuck in my head - it morphs into "Why Don't You Get A Job".
** "Bang-bang, Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head/Bang-bang, Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead..."
** I am the egg man... they are the egg man... Compounded by this being by far [[WordSaladLyrics their weirdest song]], and being covered by ''at least'' four other bands. I'm just waiting for DreamTheater to cover it.

* Big & Rich's "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)." Actually, the whole ''first album'' is CrowningMusicOfAwesome meets EarWorm, but "Save a Horse" in particular.
* TheBirthdayMassacre- I had the chorus to ''Happy Birthday'' stuck in my head for a few days, and the opening to ''To Die For'' as well.
** ''Red Stars'', ''Good Night'' and ''Kill The Lights'' are also particularly bad offenders in the EarWorm department.

* "Strike It Up" by Black Box. "bum bum bum bumbum bum bum bum badabum yeah DANCE DANCE DANCE DANCE!"
** I had it stuck in my head most of high school, but especially 9th grade (1991-1992) and 11th grade (1993-1994). I played it so many times that ''I wore the tape out'' -- and certain members of my family ''still'' want to kill me for that, too.

** ''[[EpicRiff Der ner ner ner ner ner ner ner]]!'' Yes, in fact, the entire male population of my high school ''did'' play that song for a week on air guitars and real guitars alike, why do you ask?
*** It's even more ear-wormy when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQShOk3NzGE Snagglepuss]] sings it (starts at 0:46, probably Not Safe For Work).
** Speaking of BlackSabbath, don't forget "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkGVVbU1jwg Paranoid]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo135x0oXo8 War Pigs]]"

* Lou Bega: "A little bit of Monica in my life... "
* Laura Bell Bundy's "Giddy On Up."

* Not many songs get stuck in my head until I'm sick of them, but Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly" did. You may not recognize the extremely generic title, but you've almost certainly heard the song - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PWfB4lurT4 it starts in your toes, and it crinkles your nose...]]

** "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" too.
* {{Caramell}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvq9r6R6QAY Caramelldansen]] is pretty damn catchy.
** There's also an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67ZkAd1wmI English version]], although the Swedish original is probably a little catchier for an English speaker.
*** "Dance to the beat, clap your hands together..."
** [[Tropers/EvoluderViral I]] work at a Halloween store (blame it on a personal BrokeEpisode). One of the many awful duties we can get stuck on is going out in costume and waving to traffic. Of course, owning a pair of very good speakers, I instead hooked up my iPod and began dancing Caramelldansen. In full Jason Voorhees costume. At a busy intersection. You know it's gone viral when random passersby walk up and JOIN YOU.
** [[Tropers/{{Zipp}} I]] occasionally get a non existent version by TheResidents in the style of ''The Third Reich N Roll''. If you ever heard that record, you'll know what I mean.

* "Prison Bitch" by Rodney Carrington. Just try to listen to it without it getting stuck in your head.

** "Code Monkey".
** "Re: Your Brains" is something you can easily listen to on loop.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEw8xpb1aRA ...you're a Rorschach Test on fire, you're a day-glo pterodactyl.]] The song's about maths, believe it or not, and the video is a zoom into the Mandelbrot Set.
** "Chiron Beta Prime" is not only a great AntiChristmasSong, but quite the EarWorm, too.
** "Creepy Doll" is what you get when you cross-breed NightmareFuel with an EarWorm.
** ''[[http://www.jonathancoulton.com/songdetails/Gambler%27s%20Prayer%20(Demo) Gambler's Prayer]]'' for me. It's not as intense as a lot of the others, but it hits a lot of her adolescent power fantasy/megalomaniac daydreams.

* Taio Cruz. "Break Your Heart". The remix with Ludacris. "I'm only gonna break-break your break-break your heart..."
** One word: ''Dynamite''.
* Three words: Achy Breaky Heart.
** Three more: Billy Ray Cyrus. The WeirdAlYankovic parody is even more earworm-y.
** His daughter is WORSE.
* MileyCyrus's song, "Party in the USA," is an ''insidious'' ear worm. It's even worse if you hate the song.
** ''Anything'' by Miley Cyrus /HannahMontana, particularly "He Could Be the One." It doesn't help that I hate her music with a burning anger.
* For me, it's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCntXvVY5Ww What The Fuck Is Wrong With You]]" by Combichrist. Hell, ''everything'' by Combichrist is this for me! It's just...just...just listen.
** "Hey, you, what the fuck is wrong with you?" That's the chorus, and it's repeated so many times in the song. What's the problem there? ''IT WON'T GET OUT OF MY HEAD!''

** Actually, let's just get it over with and say Daft Punk period.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgBgnoEY4iM Work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger]]. [[GeneralNerd This has been stuck in my head]] for two days even after reading all these other ones (although some have ALMOST succeeded in removing it).
*** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2cYWfq--Nw Daft Hands]] video makes it even better. Fast fingers! So fast!
**** Kanye West's sampling of it, followed (for me at least) by it being overplayed everywhere for a whole summer (my work had a radio playing the pop-station for all of summer 2008, and "Stronger" was played at least once an hour for months) made this even worse.
** I hate to do this to you all, but '''[[spoiler: ONE. MORE. TIME.]]'''
* BUY IT USE IT BREAK IT FIX IT TRASH IT CHANGE IT MELT UPGRADE IT...
* "My Problem" from Dance Hall Crashers. (Sorry, I can't provide any links, It's a tad underground) If you heard the song before and deny it, ''YOU'RE LYING''
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnJ8wxhGc9M Found it!]] Click with caution
* "Flagpole Sitta" by Harvey Danger. "I'M NOT SICK, BUT I'M NOT WELL!"
** This song may not be an earworm for me, but it's got a lot of good memories attached to it, so I never fail to sing it at the top of my lungs whenever it comes on the radio.
* "[[{{Danzig}} Mother, tell your children not to walk my way...]]"
* One word: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9Bbu_prxJk SANDSTORM.]]
* Dead or Alive: "You spin me right round baby, right round like a record, baby" (was also subject to MemeticMutation on the [[ShockSite Meatspin]] site. No, I am not going to link to it. Google it yourself, if you dare. More benignly, [[CodeGeass Spinzaku]] also got it as his "theme").
** Same with Flo Rida's 'remix' to the tune of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-y18UJ3j7E You spin my head round right round, when ya go down...]]"
*** Not remix, [[SampledUp sample]]. And God, that Flo Rida song is sticky (helps the guest star, [[{{Kesha}} Ke$ha]], sounds like KatyPerry, which appears below in this page).
** Flo Rida's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-S2_IBlaCFI Low]]" is just as catchy.
* How about "Sweet Lullaby" by Deep Forest? "Saso saso ato aro aro..." And the sample by Mauro Picotto in Komodo isn't much better - "save a soul, save a love for a better life..." Do NOT listen to any version of these songs unless you want to find yourself humming the melody at inopportune moments.
* DeepPurple, "Smoke on the Water".
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU-ZQWZSGfc In my head / I see you all over me / In my head / You fufill my fantasy]]"...Damn you, Jason Derulo, damn you!

* Now whip it! Into shape! Shape it up! Get straight! Go forward! Move ahead! Try to detect it! It's not too late! To whip it! Whip it good!
* ''Come On, Eileen'' by Dexy's Midnight Runners. "Too-rye-ay!"
** That one even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades this]]. One of the lyrics is "you'll hum this tune forever".
* Dethkloks [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZcB81Jz_xw Duncan Hills Coffee Jingle]]
* Dimmu Borgir, "Blood Hunger Doctrine" - or at least, the beginning part used in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=975Zw8BJ3Vg this awesome trailer]]. Daaaaa-dadadaaaa-daaaa-dadadadada...

* DireStraits' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_lfqKbOvTk "Walk Of Life"]].
** The EpicRiff of "Sultans of Swing".
*** 'Money for Nothing' is worse. It's an AWESOME song, and I still overdose on it sometimes...
* A veteran earworm - "[[DisneyThemeParks There's so much * that we share, that it's time we're aware, it's a small world after all...]]"
** [[TheLionKing NO! ANYTHING BUT THAT!]]
** Reputedly, scientists made "It's a Small World" as an experiment on catchy tunes. I knew [[MadScientist scientists were mad.]]
** I can definitely attest to the catchiness of that song, having had it stuck in my head on and off for the last decade after going on the "It's a small world" ride at Disneyland. It just keeps coming back.
** I believe that its horrifying catchiness was best described by a park employee when she went there - "Don't see 'It's a Small World' unless you want to slit your wrists."
*** In Disneyland, "It's A Small World" is referred to among employees as "The Asylum".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKyPxrzz2cg Listen to it here, if you dare!]]
*** And here's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-tDHYE0Uy4 a remix]] from Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix.
** The earworminess was parodied — perhaps a little ''too'' well — by ''TheSimpsons''. "Duff Beer for me, Duff Beer for you, I'll have a Duff, you have one too!" (repeat ad nauseum)
*** According to the DVD commentary, that song originally had ''two'' verses, but was shortened to one to make it more annoying (and hence make the gag funnier).
**** It's a Small World's" earworminess was also parodied, briefly, on FamilyGuy when Stewie wandered away from Peter and was chained to the exhibit.
** * Another Disney World song that will never leave your head is the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ya5cwg6VboM Welcome medly]], especially the first part.
* The Distillers were HORRIBLE about this. ( but were no doubt a great band!) I ''STILL'' have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsnkTcdkRUc Coral Fang]] stuck in my head...
*** "Ooooooh Wahoooo, the Coooral Faaang! Stiiick it iiin tooo make you ill!"
*** How about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYc35ZoNxkk City of Angels?]]
**** Ever hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxQZfFOyE4c Word Comes Tumblin' Down?]] You'll be singing it in your ''Afterlife''
***** It's the opening riff and first verse from For Tonight Your Only Here To Know for me. It's just...So awesome...
* "I Touch Myself" by the Divinyls. ...Shut up.

* Carl Douglas: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yl9ZZsUX00s Everybody was KUNG FU FIGHT-TII-ING, nananana nana na na na!]]
* [[KiTA I looked up "Through The Fire And Flames"]] due to it being on the ThatOneBoss trope. 6 weeks later and it hasn't left my head yet...
** You think that is an EarWorm? You don't know Dragonforce ear worms until you listen to Black Winter Night, Once in a Lifetime, and Operation Ground and Pound.
** MY SOUL AND MY SPIRIT WILL GO OOOOOOOON FOR ALL OF ETERNITYYYYY!
** This Troper would add "Fury of the Storm" to this list. Heck, a good deal of DragonForce music could likely qualify.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57Ipllq9Gnk "I like my sitar, I like my sitar, I play the sitar, sitar, wherever I go, o-o-oh…"]]
** "I love to drive the taxi, I like it very much. Even though I have no liscense, I always find the clutch." Calcutta will stay with you forever.
** Dr Bombay falls under the category of "Annoyingly Catchy Indian". His music will ''never leave.''
*** Some of Dr Bombay's (aka Jonny Jakobsen) work as Dr MacDoo (a [[{{Fauxreigner}} faux]] Scot) and much of his work as Carlito (a [[{{Fauxreigner}} faux]] Mexican) also refuse to leave the brain once heard, as following some of the related suggestions at the ''My Sitar'' video will prove.

* I had Duffy's "Rain On Your Parade" stuck in my head for ages for a long time, so I got the song, and I have to say there is something strangely soothing about an extremely blonde Welsh woman belting out how she's gonna keep on rainin', rainin', rainin' over you.
* BobDylan's "All Along The Watchtower" can repeat itself over, and over, and over again, especially if you've been watching too much BattlestarGalactica.
** ESPECIALLY the BSG version. It's freaking awesome.
** Let's not forget the CoveredUp JimiHendrix [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmwFRvKYZNs&feature=channel_page version]].

** [[ThisIsSparta California! Uber Alles! California Uber Alles! Uber Alles! Califonia! Uber Alles California!]]
* I'm a little surprised that no one's mentioned 'Country Roads, Take Me Home' by John Denver, Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert. It's a beautiful song, though it took hearing it in Whisper of the Heart to realize that... I, an American, began to like (some) American country music because I heard it in a Japanese Anime... that's what you call ironic.
* Pretty much every DoctorSteel song. Subservience has never been so damn catchy.
* CelineDion. ''Titanic's'' theme. NEAAAAAR, FAAAAAR, WHEREVER YOU ARRRREEE....
* Dyza Boys bring you "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q378DLtBVjQ&fmt=18 Nekeca]]" all the way from the Czech Republic.
* The Dillinger Escape Plan's song "Unretrofied." IIIIIIIIIIIIIII'll just faaaake it in the eeeeeeeend...
* DreamTheater has some of this in songs such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH_9lJxeiXg Octavarium]]" (from 12:16 13:49) and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaQpC4HuJ5M Metropolis, pt. 1]]" (starting at 5:57).

** Like "You Spin Me Round", Flo Rida [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7VLvjkyQ30 had a field day with it]].
** You know what? Scratch it, anything by Eiffel 65 is bound to get stuck in your head and stay there for an undisclosed amount of time. This troper is especially susceptible to "DJ With the Fire", despite it being one of their lesser known songs.
* Einstürzende Neubauten: "DINGSALLER DINGSALLER DINGS DINGS ALLER! DINGSALLER DINGSALLER DINGS DINGS ALLER!"

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCzq1EoIbvw Now I'm feelin' so fried like a cheese stick...]]
* Jose Feliciano: "Feliz Navidad." I can attest that I had this in my head for six months straight.
** My wife has had this song stuck in her head for YEARS.
** I had to learn this song for Christmas in second grade, and subsequently couldn't stop singing it until the next Christmas.
** My son came up with an even catchier parody: "Fleas on my dog. Fleas on my dog ..."
* Bryan Ferry's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yBOas7ZOd8 Let's Stick Together]] is ''absurdly'' catchy.
* Five For Fighting, "100 Years". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmoE8_U-JTw&fmt=18 Fifteen there's still time for you/Time to buy and time to lose]]...
* Firewater's "Get Out Of My Head".
** I'm guessing it didn't.
* Fleetwood Mac's classic: "Don't! Stop! Thinkin' about tomorrow! Don't! Stop! It'll soon be here!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56ucHN0TT10 Peacekeeper taaaaake your time, wait for the daaaaaaark of niiiight, soon all the sooooooooooons will riiiiise]]
* Pretty much ''anything'' by ''{{Flight Of The Conchords}}'', but in particular '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xlMuwdmBhTk Foux De Fa Fa]]', '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LLRk3_nogo Prince Of Parties]]', and '[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06AOTWgey74 Frodo]]'.
* Infamous punk band Flipper somehow managed to [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstruct]] this trope with ''Sex Bomb''. All the instuments play this simple little riff, then they start taking solos and some some [[YourMileageMayVary AWESOME]] noise. Just rhythmic chaotic noise. And let's not forget the "hook", which are also the only lyrics in the song:
-->RAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
-->She's a Sex Bomb, Baby-Yeah!
** The Tom Jones song of same name is just as catchy.
** Heck, any Tom Jones song. What's new pussycat, woah woah woah woah.
* The song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuK2A1ZqoWs "Handlebars"]] by Flobots is the catchiest song known to man.
** I take it you've never heard [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6iss6vciEE "Combat"]], then. No known beat that can keep me lonely, No known beat that can keep me lonely...
* One that gets worse due to ([[GrandTheftAutoViceCity literal]]) GrandTheftAutoEffect: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUjIA3Rt7gk "I Ran"]] by AFlockOfSeagulls. "And I ran, I ran so far away..."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpmDawqOfqs It even became an]] [[EarWorm/{{Advertising}} advertising earworm]] for the game as well.
* "Sugar" by Flo Rida ft. Wynter. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfZj3M5HVjM "My lips like sugar / This candy's got you sprung..."]]
* "Crossfire" by Brandon Flowers. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5AhU12zC8fc "Lay your body down, lay your body down, lay your body down..."]]
* Cassius, by the Foals. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3lWbPEOJp0 Here]].
* Any time BenFolds does a song with a driving piano riff, it's bound to get stuck in your head. "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces", "Steven's Last Night In Town", "Annie Waits" and "From Above" are just four examples.
* FooFighters, who truly are [[MemeticMutation THE BEST THE BEST]] [[RuleOfThree THE BEST]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0tB45QvRAY THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST]] [[{{Mondegreen}} THE BEARS]] [[MemeticMutation THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST]]
** Heeeeeeeelloooooooooo/ I've waited here for you/ Eeeeeveeeeeeeeeerloooooooooooooong
** SPAAAAAAAAAACE!
** '''BREAKOOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!'''
** ''What if I say I will never surrender?!'' Seriously, that song sounds like something out of GurrenLagann.
** Heeeey, don't let it go to waste!
* Do you know how weird it is for a 20-something girl to go around singing "Stacy's Mom?" [[HotShonenMom "Stacy's mom has got it goin' on, / she's all I want and I've waited for so loooong..."]] (It's by Fountains of Wayne.)
** You think that's bad? Try singing the song with ''{{Transformers}}'' [[FilkSong lyrics]]. "Megatron has got it goin' on.... Starscream, can't you see, you're just not the bot for meeee!"

* What IS it with all these [[EarWorm Ear Worms]]? I guess we can blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol, blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-a-a-alcoho-o-ol!

* Debbie Friedman's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwb1PnLcchw The Latke Song]]" will stick around so long your brain cells will start charging rent.
* FrontLineAssembly write very catchy songs (especially considering the [[{{Industrial}} genre]]), but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBIWW2bwfwk Provision]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7neOT06a9nk Neologic Spasm]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeUMQqhg9TI Prophecy]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQj-syygshQ Circuitry]] are very addictive listening.
* "Maneater" and "Promiscuous" by Nelly Furtado will worm into your brain and will not give it up. Ever. Not even through another earworm.
** From the pre-[[HotterAndSexier rehaul]] phase, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5E0Rb1y6XAY Powerless]]", specially the banjo, is hard to forget too.
* This troper is terrifyed by female metal screams, but she is obsessed with the song Cassie by Flyleaf.The band is christian so it makes up for the screams.
* 'No Hopers, Jokers and Rogues' by the Fisherman's Friends (a band of fishermen from Port Isaac who sing sea shanties and the like) has an incredibly high [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYA_0R7Vw1s ear worm potential]].
* ''Oh Oh Oh Sexy Vampire'' by Fright Ranger. [[http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/406540 Sexy vampire/I'm fallin' in love/So just bite me, baby/And drink all my blood/Oh yeah~!]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phOdMBfT1Tc Paro, Nakso, Mikono, Syro kai Folegandro. Kriti, Rodo, Ko kai Santorini~]] God damn you, Galana. It's even worse since the only words you really can understand if you're not linguistic are Kriti and sleeping bag.
* Cee-Lo Green's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc0mxOXbWIU&ob=av3e Fuck You]] is most definitely an EarWorm.
* A lot of stuff by Gackt. Most notably, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5krfVziv7RY Vanilla]], and his latest release, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAoHRQtvq18 Ghost]]. I have had the latter on repeat since the song came out (which was ''nine days ago'' as of when this was written).
** I see your Vanilla and Ghost, and raise you U+ K, Redemption, Illness Illusion, Kono Daremo Inai Heya De, and Orenji no Taiyou.
** Oh, and now also Koakuma Heaven. Dear god it's catchy...
* "I would die for you, I would die for you, I've been dying just to feel you by my side..." ''#1 Crush'' is one addictive song... Damn you, Garbage.
* Everyone has their own songs; I have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqaUZkf52fs Cherry Lips]] by Garbage stuck in my head.
** First encounter with that song was this [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azPqscFXpc4 one]]. Hard to be an ear worm when you're laughing to hard.
* [[{{Genesis}} She seems to have an invisible touch, yeah, she reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart...]]
* Curse you, Genki Rockets, and your ever catchy "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XL2od1AF_Cs Heavenly Star]]"! This troper and her sister jokingly refer to it as "[[NoMoreHeroes No More Ear Worm]]" after listening to it during a pre-livestream of ''NoMoreHeroes2DesperateStruggle''.
* Girls Aloud. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f8A6Vc4LR9s I'm just a love machine, feeding my fantasy, give me a kiss or three...]]
* "Centerfold" by the J Geils Band (Or Captain Jack if you're a DDR fan). Not even the whole song--just the "nah nah nah nana nah" part.
** "My blood runs cold/ My memories have just been sold! / (na na nananana) My angel is a centerfold..."
*** What makes it worse is that it predicts that it'll be stuck in your head. Why do you think someone's whistling the aforementioned part at the very end?
** "Fright Night, who's it going to be tonight, lock your doors and windows tight, soon you'll all belive i'm right."
** I've been through diamonds! I've been through minks! I've been through it all! ...LOVE STINKS.
* Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll, Part Two" arguably manages to be one of these...despite having no lyrics whatsoever except "Hey!"
** Which was remixed very successfully as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5fDOCwa9L0 Doctorin' the TARDIS]] ten years later. Its arguably even ''catchier'' than the original. Even now, I can't hear the original Rock and Roll Part II without wanting to sing "Doctor Whoooooo HEY Doctor Who, Doctor Whooooo BOSH BOSH The TARDIS" over the top of it.
* The Go-Gos: "Vacation" ...vacation, all I ever wanted...
** "Our Lips Are Sealed"
* So many {{Goldfrapp}} songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDPvwg_Hu9I Join our group and you will find, harmony and piece of mind, make you bettah (We're here to welcome you!)]]. A lot more people are getting exposed to this one due to it's use [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I34JWCY74w in the new SyFy promo]]. And, somehow, the fact that the lyrics (intentionally) read like a jingle for a cult makes it stick even more.
* "[[http://www.vevo.com/watch/selena-gomez-and-the-scene/naturally/USH5V0920974 You are the thunder, and I am the lightning...]]"
* [[{{Gorillaz}} "I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad, I got sunshine in a bag, I'm useless, but not for long, the future is comin' on..."]] This troper was hiking in the Grand Canyon and could not get this or Clint Eastwood out of her head. For four days. FOUR DAYS.
** Windmill, windmill for the land, Turn forever hand in hand... AAARRRGGHHH.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBVfXfV9PPI I'm just pulling on a line, on a line]] ... Oh, I'm just pulling on a line. I'm just pulling on a line, on a line ... ''and sometimes it pulls on me''. Curse you, Great Lake Swimmers. Curse you.
* From GreenDay: "Sometimes I give myself the creeps, sometimes my mind plays tricks on me..."
** "Do you know the enemy? Do you know your enemy? Well, gotta know the enemy, whoa. (WHOA!)"
** The opening of "Brain Stew".
** Gloooria! Viva la Glooorrriiia!
** My shadow's the only one that walks beside me, my shallow heart's the only thing that's beating...
** One... Twenty-one guns!
* "Sweet Child o' Mine" by GunsNRoses. Hell, you just need the opening licks...
** "Welcome to the jungle, watch you break into your - shananananana - knees, knees!"
** "Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty!"
** "I'm on a Nightrain, bottoms up! I'm on a Nightrain, fill my cup!"
** "I used to love her, but I had to kill her..."
** "Better" is, arguably, though YourMileageMayVary for that one (and the rest of ''Chinese Democracy'').

* Hanson: "Mmm Bop" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd0C_Us31kk Mmm bop, ba duba bop, ba du bop, ba duba bop, ba du bop, ba duba bop, ba du bop, ba du]]. This may still be HighOctaneNightmareFuel to some tropers. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v3bZFbx1s4 And it got surreal after Hanson lost their preteen voices]].
* Thanks to its mention in TheCoverChangesTheGender, I ''cannot'' get Har Mar Superstar's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdyLRBK2ucQ Tall Boy]]" out of my damn mind.

* The Finnish song "Juodaan Viinaa" ("Let's Drink Booze"), either the original by Hector or the Korpiklaani cover. I can't stop singing it to myself, and the worst part is I barely know any Finnish at all.
* Edward Hill ("Tro-lo-lo-lo-lo")--see below under "Eduard Khil."

* I find the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJU1bbBC3g8 My Best Friend]] by Hello Saferide getting stuck in my head all the time. Especially the chorus: "Damn, I wish I was a lesbian..."
** May also be a bit of a TearJerker for lonely people.
* Hermans Hermits' version of "I'm Henry the Eighth, I Am."
* Hinoi Team's version of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iIwJdQDcSA Night of Fire]] is not only semi-silly with the sumo wrestler/comedian Hikkori, it's unbearably catchy. Not to mention the dance is mesmerising.
* Gustav Holst's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0bcRCCg01I Mars, The Bringer of War]]. Dadadada-da-dadada~ Dadadada-da-dadada~
* I lost my heart to a Starship Troopah! Flashin' light in hyper space... (by Hot Gossip)
* Horsedick.mpeg. No seriously, [[RefugeInVulgarity that is his name.]] His most famous song? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuzjawQG2Y0 Suck My Dick, While I FUCK THAT ASS!]]
* Johnny Horton's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EdngnDdjCo#t=1m8s Sink The Bismarck]]''.
* Julianne Hough's [[http://www.cmt.com/videos/julianne-hough/223192/that-song-in-my-head.jhtml That Song In My Head]] is an EarWorm about an EarWorm. (And love.)
* So many things by HotHotHeat. One adjective critics can seem to agree on when describing them is "catchy". An example that sticks out is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3N9iSBanTs "Bandages"]].
* Hyde's Sweet Vanilla, Masquerade, Midnight Celebration and Hello definately counts. His music with Kaz as VAMPS counts too: LOVE ADDICT and BLOOD, SEX, ROCK 'N ROLL are hard to get out of your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9ol1qLyYwE DON'T YOU WANT ME BABY!?]] Why hasn't anyone mention this!?!?

* "Dancing with Myself" by Billy Idol.

* Infected Mushroom. Actual conversation:
-->'''My Girlfriend''': I can't believe you spent my iTunes money on something called [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0XEmBCBB24 Frog Machine]].\\
'''Me''': It had to be done.
** Speaking of Infected Mushroom, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7C3OHQa0VU Meduzz]]. The part with the strings (4:42). Incidentally, it's also [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome awesome]].
* From IronMaiden: "Run to the Hills" and "The Number of the Beast".
** Try listening to "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dSQ5a5K4c4 The Nomad]]" and not having either the chorus or the Eastern-sounding riff out of your head.
** "Fear of the dark, fear of the dark..."
** [[ThisIsSPARTA TWO!]] [[LargeHam MINUTES!]] TO [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L75ikjK1vaI#t=0m52s MIIIIDNIIIIIIIGHT!]]

* What about Iggy Pop's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSFV6RhdsNs Passenger]]? "I am a passenger, and I ride and ride..." Really tough to get it out of one's head.
** While we're in Iggy and TheStooges, "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and "Search and Destroy".
* Iyaz's "Replay" (a song ''about'' earworms - [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and love]] - at that); even worse if you listen to its "[[WeirdAlYankovic Polka Face]]" re-arrangement.

* Jack Off Jill's Star No Star. And Girl Scout. Hell, everything of theirs can go in here.
* Say what you want about MichaelJackson, but he's made of win in this category (arguably his whole success is based upon creating persistent Ear Worms):
** "'Cause this is thriller / Thriller night!"
*** "Night creatures crawlin' / The dead start to walk in their maaaaasquerade!
** "Billie Jean is not my lover / She's just a girl who claims that I am the one / But the kid is not my son..."
*** That is my favourite ear worm of all time. Period.
** "Just beat it / beat it..."
** "Annie Are You OK? / So, Annie Are You OK? / Are You OK Annie? / Annie Are You OK? / So, Annie Are You OK? / Are You OK Annie? / Annie Are You OK? / So, Annie Are You OK? / Are You OK Annie? / You've Been Hit By / You've Been Hit By A Smooth Criminal!"
*** Even the bass riff is something you end up humming... Dum-dum dada-dumdum, dada-dumdum, dada-dumdum, dum!
*** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MPdFh5c6tY The Alien Ant Farm cover]] is just as bad an EarWorm. I feel sorry for any RockBand players who buy this. Now if you'll excuse me, [[{{G-mon}} I'll resume my efforts to vacate this from my ears.]]
** I want to love you / (P.Y.T.) Pretty Young Thing / You need some lovin' / TLC (Tender Loving Care)/ And I'll take you there...
** "Dirty DIANAAAAAA"!
** "I wanna rock with you! (All niiiiight!)/Dance you into day! (Sunliiiiight)
** "You know I'm bad, I'm bad, you know it!"
** While we're on the Jacksons, how about "I Want You Back" or friggin' "ABC" by the Jackson 5?
** Oh, and don't forget this one: "The way she came into the room / I knew right then and there / there was something different about this girl". Dangerous. A dangerous ear worm, one might truthfully say.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xrd3lSn5FqQ Life ain't so bad at all! Live your life off the wall!]]
** Gonna Dance, Gonna Shout, Gonna Burn This Disco Out!
** Just because you read it in a magazine/Or see it on the TV screen/Don't make it factual/Though everybody wants to read all about it. Catchy and true!
* JayZ's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hasyLg8fBx4 H to the Izzo]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UjsXo9l6I8 IN NEW YOOOOORK! Concrete jungle where dreams are made of!]] (gets even worse after hearing the StarWars [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNyE2xExktA version]])
* The song "Verteidiger des Wahren Blödsinns" by German band JBO. The lyrics are basically an ode to fun and nonsense (the name translates to something like: "Defenders of the true Nonsense"). The whole thing is also a style parody of Manowar.
* Practically anything by Jellyfish.
* From JethroTull, we have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1ZHi8nJa8M The Story Of The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsCyC1dZiN8 Living In The Past]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr6maEQvi5Q Slipstream]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCcwNoVSt2E Locomotive Breath]].
** Also - Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of A New Day, Thick As A Brick, Too Old To Rock And Roll, and Aqualung.
*** Yeah, but which ''part'' of ''Thick as a Brick''? It's 45 minutes long and has about seventeen different Earworms buried in it.
* BillyJoel, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFTLKWw542g We Didn't Start The Fire]]" is infuriatingly catchy, particularly if you were alive for the events described.
** It ''really, really'' doesn't help that Coca-Cola used a cover of this song for the "[[http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=n4OXItHCgi0 Los Cocacoleros]]" ad, ''a [[SuperBowlSpecial 2006 FIFA World Cup Special]]''.
** If you weren't alive for all of those events, there's CollegeHumor.com's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QyYaPWasos We Didn't Start the Flamewar"]]
** Or alternatively, JibJab's "In 2007," which is just as catchy as the original with updated lyrics.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Jy0YmvGc6o I BET SHES NEVER HAD A BACKSTREET GUY, I BET HER MAMA NEVER TOLD HER WHY]]
** Pretty much anything by Billy Joel. Try [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqnpeG--bkU "Only The Good Die Young"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVlDSzbrH5M "Downeaster Alexa"]] on for size.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_XgQhMPeEQ WHOA-OH-OH-OH FOR THE LONGEST TIME]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZ7ZvxXvn90 "The Middle"]] by Jimmy Eat World. "Hey!! Don't write yourself off yet!!" Try to get that out of your head! I DARE you.
** "IT JUST TAKES SOME TIME, LITTLE GIRL YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIDE"
* EltonJohn: "She's got electric boots!/A mohair suit!/You know I read it [[strike: in a magazine!]] [[{{Mondegreen}} inna back a seee nooo!]]/Buh-buh-buh-benny and the jetsss..." That song just ''will not'' GTFO of my head.
** ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&v=bkMXnk16kiE CAUSE I LIVE AND BREATHE, THIS PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM!]]'' Yes, this song is only a year younger than I am. No, I do not care.
** "'I'm the rocket man... ROCKET MAN! burning out his fuse up here alone..."
** "So Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, where the dogs of society howl..."
* Year 3000 by the Jonas Brothers is the bane of my sisters existence.
** [[TheLittleMermaid I admit that in the past I've been a nasty]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCXiczrRUSg they weren't kidding when they called me kinda strange]]...
** This Troper (probably due to being a die-hard JasonMraz fan) pretty much despises Nick Jonas's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt11Lg4MJ9I Introducing Me]], but ''damn'' is it catchy...
* "Don't Stop Believin'" by {{Journey}}.
** Oh you bastard, I struggle to resist the urge to break out with 'JUST A SMALL TOWN GIRL!' in the middle of lectures at the best of times.
** My choir is singing this as the finale for our mid-winter concert. As such, we have now practically made it our tradition for all of us to sing it at the top of our lungs on bus rides going to singing competitions or shows.

** I'm a cowboy baby... (Ridin' all night and sleepin' all day.)
* "All These Things That I've Done" by TheKillers. Also known as the one song that goes, ''I got soul, but I'm not a soldier''.
** I had this with another song by this band ("Somebody told me, you had a boyfriend...").
*** That would be the aptly titled "Somebody Told Me"
** For me it's the opening guitar part to ''Uncle Johnny''
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT4HB2oOYq8 Spaceman]] says "Everybody look down"... because it's all in my ear.
** "There ain't no motive for this crime/Jenny was a friend of mine/So come on, so come on, so come on."

** Pretty much any Lady Gaga song qualifies.

* Lady Antebellum's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB7T3lJ3dZ4 Need You Now.]] Once those four piano notes get into your head, they will never come out again.
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW5Y5Y8wcKU Lookin' for a Good Time]]" is a pretty serious ear-worm too, especially the up-down-up-down pattern on the chorus.
* Ladyhawke - "Paris is Burning" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1HDZNR9cY4 My heart is yearning, but Paris is burning, Paris is burning all night long...]]

** Neil Cicierega seems to eat and breathe earworms. Other examples already on this very page include Toy Food, 123456 Pokemon, and the infamous Mysterious Ticking Noise. And that's not even including any of his album stuff. Any fan who has listened to a full album is guaranteed to get a song stuck in their head from reading any of the following lines:
--->There is no horizon I cannot set my eyes on
--->Nobody known my true identity
--->Nine out of ten sociopaths agree, you gotta see Hyakugojyuuichi
--->Kitten is angry, kitten is offended

* If you have heard Paul [=McCartney=]'s hits when they were hits, they may sneak back into your brain every so often. [[AnonymousMcCartneyfan I once got "Arrow Through Me"(!) as an Ear Worm]]. And enjoyed it.
-->"Ooh, baby, you couldn't have done a worse thing to me\\
If you had taken an arrow and drove it right through me\\
Oooooh..."

* The McCoys: ''HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG ON SLOOPY, SLOOPY HANG ON!''
* Pick any Meat Loaf song, for example: ''LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL I'LL BE GONE WHEN THE MORNING CALLS!''.
** Anything by Steinman. Bonus points since these songs cannot be sung softly. I was once howling "IIIIII WANT MY MONEY BACK! Life is a lemon" while walking down the street.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_YjM4V4fc Let me sleep on it, baby baby let me sleep on it!]]
** Several songs from Hang Cool Teddy Bear. Running Away From Me has one of the catchiest choruses on that album.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KDO_yCYcuU "Peace Sells"]] by {{Megadeth}}. I finished up a RockBand session with my friends, and discovered that the whole group still had the opening bassline stuck in their heads. ''"Dun-dundun dun dun dun dun dundun..."''

** M.I.A.'s discography is full of these, but "URAQT" is a particularly bad one. '''DIT-DIT-DIT ON YOUR MO-BILE PHONE'''
* From George Michael: "Cause I gotta have faith, I gotta have faith, faith, faith, ..."
** And LimpBizkit's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ei_FJWHXys cover]] is equally sticky.
** Not to mention "Last Christmas", at least in Sweden where it actually it's fairly popular to sing in Lucia processions and at the start of Christmas Break.
* Midnight Oil. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpkGvk1rQBI How can we dance when our Earth is turning/How do we sleep while our beds are burning...]]
* Most of Mika's songs, Grace Kelly, Big Girls, and We Are Golden.
* Joni Mitchell - The Circle Game
** Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". Pick any recording of it (it's a popular cover song). The first episode of the TV show ''Now and Again'' used samples of the chorus as background music in pivotal scenes ("don't know what you got til it's gone"), which is part of the reason the show has managed to stick in the minds of fans, years later.

* ''King of Spain'' by Moxy Fruvous. Remember that slower pizza's more luscious, 'cause the King of Spain never rushes!
** I occasionally hum a tune or barely-contextually belt out a line of one of their songs, to the chagrin of friends who have no interest in fantastic obscure Canadian folkapella. Some of their lines are beautiful instead of funny, though, such as Horseshoes:
--->''My sister Sue, and me were doing stunts with electric trains''\\
''She said she'd do my dishes so I handed her the reigns (handed her the reigns)''\\
''And she engineered a collision steered by a hand-eye protege''\\
''As my train set started burning, I heard my sister say:''\\
''Look straight at the coming disaster''
* Mozart's ''Rondo Alla Turca'' and ''Eine Kleine Nachtmusik''.
** Queen of the Night, from Mozart's ''The Magic Flute''. Making it much worse is that you don't possibly have a hope of singing along unless you're an absurdly high-voiced soprano or sucking helium, yet you'll ''want'' to.
* TheMisfits were quite good at making you sing horrifying lyrics over and over again.
** Ever hear Skulls? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLXEj4UowF8 go ahead and click]], if you want to sing about chopping little girls head's off all day...
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSgaqreXrKE HATEBREEDERS WHOOAAAHOOOO!]]
** Well, I got somethin to say/I killed a baby today/And it doesn't matter much to me/as long as it's dead.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0x1yBiFiUw If you gots the poison, I gots the remedy...]]
* Münchener Freiheit (those guys who did the incredibly catchy ''Keeping The Dream Alive'') tend to turn out songs which are earworms, even to those (such as me) who don't understand a word of German. Nearly all the songs on ''Fantasie/Fantasy'' and ''Definitive Collection'' are earworms, including their cover of Bob Dylan's ''Baby Blue'' (in German).
** I had the chorus stuck in my head for six years. It did not help not knowing the language it was in. Listened to it three times in a row when I finally learnt its name. Still have it stuck, but know at least I can sing along.
* MyChemicalRomance. ''Blood''. That is all. (I once found myself teaching it to my [[CrowdSong entire summer camp]] after singing it one too many times in public. * twitchy twitch* )
** ...Give them blood, blood, gallons of the stuff, give them all that they can drink and it will never be enough, so give them blood, blood, blllooooooOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHDDDDDD... *gasp*...I'M THE KINDA HUMAN WRECKAGE THATCHA LOVE!
** Anyone who's played Guitar Hero 2 will agree with me that Dead is an even bigger ear worm, and those that have played {{Burnout}} 3 will say I'm Not Okay (I Promise) is even bigger than ''that''.

All of the above will either cause you to start frantically reciting choruses over and over or loudly singing deceptively victorious-sounding tunes as you walk down the street.
* Massive Attack, especially the music riffs for 'Angel' and 'Teardrop'.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_QsCXm1vrk MONKEEY VER-SUS ROOOBOT]]. Very, very hard to stop singing this out loud.

* Nikki Yanofsky's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v0o27BPIIk I Believe]], the anthem of the Vancouver 2010 Winter OlympicGames. [[OverlyLongName Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium]] managed to get this song stuck in the head of nearly every Canadian during the Games by creating an instrumental version to play at the end of each commercial break. The conclusion of each break was announced with: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT_B3_d8ZeA DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / DUHDUHDA DUH DA DAAAAAA! / DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / BUH DUHDUH DUHDUHDUHDUHDUHDUH DADADA!!]] However, the song seemed to simply disappear from the heads of everyone, along with the rest of the Olympic spirit, following the closing of the Games at the beginning of March.
* [[{{NWA}} "Straight Outta Compton, crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube from the crew called Niggaz Wit Attitude, when I'm called off, I got a sawed-off, squeeze the trigger, and bodies get hauled off..."]]
* From Nelly: "It's gettin' hot in here! (Uh-huh!)/So take off all your clothes!"
* "99 Luftballons" by Nena
** Possibly made even more infectious by putting Goldfinger's English cover of it on the soundtrack to the North American version of ''GranTurismo 3''.
*** I fell in love with the song when I first heard it on the RocketPower tv movie "Race Across New Zealand." Then I found the ''original'' and I'm the only one of my friends who know it. I can still sing nearly the whole thing, word for word, because it's ALWAYS STUCK in my head.
*** I haven't listened to the song in at least a year, yet I can still remember all the lyrics. In German. Which I don't speak. And wouldn't know how to write properly. That's impressive. Luckily there are enough other ear worms eating my brain that it isn't terribly intrusive.
*** I just can't stop listening to every single version of that song that's out there!
*** I listen to the [[http://mp3.zing.vn/mp3/nghe-bai-hat/99-99-Love-Balloon-BAND-Nakanomori-BAND.IWZFAWA8.html Japanese version]] ALL THE TIME!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FnNBIiaKC5A Weeeek by NewS]]. GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD! it also doesn't help that the dance for this song is a memetic mutation
* Go up to anybody who was into Christian popular music in the 90's and say, "[[NewsBoys SHINE!]]"
** Issabella was a belly dancer with a kleptomaniac's restraint
* Nightcore: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8thtWNsWEFg DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM - DUM DADI DO - DUM DUM DI DO DI DUM]]... AAAAGHHH!
** For that matter, any nightcored (vocal song), ranging from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xv7CN-BolEc 'No Cover Song']] , [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN29h0gvZ8g 'My Girl']] , etc. to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w6KhYBcQCLw 'G-Get Up And Dance']].
* {{Nightwish}} mostly just goes for [[LargeHam completely over-the-top]] EpicRocking, but a few of their songs still manage to worm their way into your head and not let go:
** "How blind can you be/ don't you see/ you chose the long road/ but we'll be waiting. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoh4XPfOmhY BYE, BYE, BEAUTIFUL!"]]
** The chorus to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LheT-SvZM2A Erämaan Viimeinen.]] Most Nightwish fans know it by its instrumental name, Last of the Wilds, however it originally had lyrics. In Finnish. As soon as you learn the words, ''it will not leave your head''. For ''hours''.
** "Master! Apprentice! Heart born, seventh seeker! Warrior! Disciple! In me, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLW7wJvdFSI the Wishmaster! ]]"
*** ''That's'' what [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg5_mlQOsUQ they're]] [[{{Mondegreen}} really saying?]]

** At one point, [[TroperOnAStickV2 this troper]] had the chorus from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S1yQ303OeI The Escapist]] stuck in his head for ''days''.
* Harry Nillson's "Coconut": You put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, you put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]] and drink 'em both up, put the lime in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut_(song) Coconut]], call the doctor, woke 'em up, said DOC-TAH! ...

* Jerrod Niemann, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-q0LE3gtUn8&feature=avmsc2 Lover, Lover]]. "Ohh, lover, lover lover, you don't treat me no good no more~ Ohh, lover, lover lover..." It's one of those songs that just kinda... sits there in your head and plays a specific part over and over again.
* NickiMinaj. Much oh "Your Love's" chrous just consists of "Your love, your love yeah..."

* "Elvira" by The Oak Ridge Boys. By the end of the song, I guarantee you'll be singing "giddy up ba oom papa oom papa mow mow" in the deepest voice you can muster.

** "With a thousand lies and a good disguise, hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes..."
*** It's even worse if you have the "Dance, fuckers, dance" line stuck in your head, because then you can't sing it aloud without getting funny looks.
**** This is one of the few songs where the radio edit ''actually works''. Sing it right and it remains nicely rhythmic and doesn't sound like anything's missing.
** What about their song "One Fine Day"? That's one another that'll grow on you over time.
** CHANCES THROOOOOWN! NOTHING'S FREEEEEEEEEEE!
** ME AND MY OLD LADY, SUCK EACH OTHER DRY, DRY! (Heck, almost all of their songs are ear worms!)
* I have gotten in trouble more than once for singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jItz-uNjoZA Oingo Boingo's Little Girls]] out loud in public... More than once. "I love little girls, they make me feel so... good!"
** It's even more disturbing to hear ''Patrick Stewart'' singing that song. Thank you very much, ''AmericanDad''.
** "I was struck by lightning..." * sax* "walking down the street..."
* OK Go - "Here It Goes Again" * That song with the music video of the band members dancing on treadmills. "Here it goes here it goes here it goes again, oh hear it goes again, I shoulda known shoulda known shoulda known again, oh here it goes again!" You can see the video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTAAsCNK7RA here.]]
* Outkast's "Mrs. Jackson" will plague you with its chorus, the catchiest part of the song and coincidentally the only part that sticks in your head. Although sometimes instead it may just be a loop of "Forever... For''ever'' ever? For''ever'' ever?" lodged in your brain, well, forever.
** "Hey Ya!" is even worse.
*** Shake it like a [[{{Mondegreen}} corduroy ninja]]! (I witnessed the birth of that mondegreen.)

** This troper got some extremely weird looks from friends when she was singing it absent-mindedly before Katy Perry was famous. Bad earworm. Bad, bad earworm.
*** I have the album on which this song can be found, and find the next track, "Waking Up in Vegas", to be an even ''bigger'' earworm. Say what you will about the girl - she's good at catchy.

** There's a Dark Knight version (can't seem to find a video) that I now sing instead of the actual lyrics, which go "I kissed TheJoker, and I liked it, I hope Harvey Dent don't mind it..."
** [[TromboneChild I started making up a version of that song]] to go with Dean and Castiel in Season 4: "I kissed an angel and I liked it/The taste of his holy water chapstick/I kissed an angel and I liked it/I hope my brother don't mind it..." (It doesn't quite fit, but it's still fun to sing.)
*** And then there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=GB&hl=en-GB&v=RQ1U5OLKlls this]]: "I tortured souls and I liked it/Their screams of pain and anguish/I tortured souls just to try it/I hope my brother don't mind it..."
** Then there's the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1cbQG_bf3U Good News Week version]], which throws in a Pussycat Dolls song and Gabriella Cilmi song for added earwormy goodness.
** Cobra Starship recorded a male version. "I kissed a boy, they liked it/Got all the honeys in the club excited..." Incidentally, Hot 'N Cold is terribly catchy, too.
** I tend to get addicted to songs- I'll hear it, then I'll play it over and over again, and I listened to 'Hot N Cold' 28 times in one afternoon. Which is a record, even for me.
** A good example (albeit, a badly sung one) is " I Killed A Girl" by cloudstrife34 using footage from {{Higurashi}},
** ...Or of course, the version by GT Ninja Squad describing Kira from {{Death Note}} : "[[http://www.imeem.com/people/7vNPt_w/music/AxuyigcB/light-yagami-i-killed-a-guy-and-i-liked-it/ I killed a guy and I liked it]]/but still this world is rotten/I killed a guy just to try it/ Just hope the cops don't mind it."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDN4jI5vDnY You're so gay, and you don't even like boys]]/[[RuleOfThree No you don't even like/No you don't even like/No you don't even like boys.....]] [[GoshDangItToHeck Darn you]], Kate Perry, darn you...
** For added displeasure find the mashup made from Hot 'N Cold with [[{{Metallica}} Enter Sandman]]. Not only is it catchy, it's shockingly danceable.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwE-SLnLkqY Ca-li-for-nia gurls, we're unforgettable, Daisy Dukes Bikinis on top...]]
** An even better song: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98WtmW-lfeE You! Make! Me!/Feel like I'm livin' a Teen! Age! Dream!/The way you turn me on/]] [[ThisIsSparta I! Can't! Sleep!]]/Let's run away and don't ever look back, don't ever look back...

* I have seen many folks lamenting the catchy nature of a certain LizPhair song, and having to fight from singing it in public. This song? "Hot White Cum." ''Give it to me/don't give it away...''

*** NA NA NA NA NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA NA NAAAAAA.

** "Can't take me home to mama / she wouldn't think I'm proper..."
** "I'm not here for your entertainment / you don't really wanna mess with me tonight..."
** Never win first place/I don't support the team/I can't take direction/And my socks are never clean/Teachers dated me/My parents hated me/I was always in a fight/'cause I can't do nothing right/Every day I fight a war against a mirror/I can't take the person staring back at me/[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR6Ugzbe7eI=fvw i'm a hazard to myself!]] ("Don't Let Me Get Me")

* {{Queen}}'s "We Will Rock You"
** And "Bohemian Rhapsody."
*** I was in a line at an amusement park and someone started humming that. It ended with the entire line singing it out loud.
**** I once(AnimeBoston '09) heard this song, very softly, on the AnimeBoston background radio that gets drowned out later in the day. I was sitting waiting for the dealer's room to open, and suddenly the people cosplaying Amaterasu and two Time Owl-things sitting waiting also started singing, and I realized I had started to. We ended up singing it until they opened the room ten minutes early out of annoyance. I think it was about a half-hour or so, no less than, though. I kept running into them and sometimes one would be singing.
*** I once had the middle part of that song (Scaramouch, Scaramouch will you do the Fandango) stuck in my head for three days straight.
*** I have had it stuck in my head for about a year now. It's an on and off thing. Usually, I have to listen to it like twice a day and I'll get sick of it for that day so I will not think about it. It's almost gone.

* RascalFlatts' "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R71mctamUY Bob That Head]]." It's a stupid song, but [[{{Twentington}} This Troper]] would easily file it under GuiltyPleasures for its ear-worm status alone.
* Ravel's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8po7FZonP-I Bolero]]'' is ''maddening'' in this way: on one hand it's essentially the same bit being done over and over again for about 15 minutes, but after about 8-10 minutes it's built to an epic and inspiring state of pure aural ''awesome''.
* The Swedish group The Real Group has their song ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mF6FX0gnrZQ I Sing, You Sing]]''. This one is also an example of a song ''about'' an earworm as the following verse shows:
-->''I met a melody today\\
It didn't ask if it could stay\\
Now it even wants share my bed\\
You know at first it was OK\\
But as it never goes away\\
It drives me insane I almost wish I were dead\\
I can't get the melody out of my head''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh6Oz-L156c Woah-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh...]]
* RedHotChiliPeppers' "Can't Stop". Mostly that bassline.
** "Dream of californication..."
** "I like pleasure spiked with pain, and music is my aeroplane, is my aeroplane..."
** "California rest in peace, simultaneous release..."
** "If you see me getting high, knock me down, I'm not larger than life..."
** "Fight like a brave (LIKE A BRAVE)! Don't be a slave (NO SLAVE)!"
* Reel Big Fish: "Kiss me ONCE! Kiss me TWICE! Come on, pretty baby, kiss me deadly!"
** Also their cover of Take On Me.
* An amazingly infectious pop punk song, Face Down, by the Red Jumpsuit Apparatus: "Do you feel like a man / When you push her around / Do you feel better now? / As she falls to the ground". It's known to leach into your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD5Cu3R3030 Rednex, "Cotton-Eyed Joe."]] "'Fit hadn't been for Cotton-Eyed Joe / I'd been married a long time 'go / Where didja come from, where didja go / Where didja come from, Cotton-Eyed Joe..."
* [[{{REM}} R.E.M.]]: Stand in the place where you live (now face north), think about direction, wonder why you haven't before... If the song doesn't burn itself into your mind, the dancing in the video will.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqQuihD0hoI "Dragula"]] by Rob Zombie. You've probably memorized this song if you were a boy born in the late 80's/early 90's and fondly remember any of the following:
-->The Matrix
-->Anime Music Videos
-->Any soundtrack/compilation CD remotely related to horror movies, action movies, sports video games, racing video games, and/or professional wrestling

** There exists a HarryPotter {{Shipping}} fan-vid (to which I have, perhaps mercifully, mislaid the link) that uses this song as an accompaniment to the [[FoeYay Hermione/Draco ship]], perhaps because of the TheyAllSaidWeNeverCouldBeHappy theme of the (Polish) lyrics. ("Let Them Say This Isn't Love", an English translation of the song's title, was the original working title of that page for a reason.) It managed to achieve the impossible by making this godawful ship somewhat bearable, then (inevitably) got stuck in my head. And now won't go away.

** A lot of people have likely been exposed to it through its use in the 2007 ''DoctorWho'' episode "Last of the Time Lords". The song fits The Master just perfectly. RussellTDavies clearly knew exactly what he was doing when he picked the song.

* Where oh where should we begin with the catalog of TheyMightBeGiants.
** The one, the only, the classic: "Birdhouse In Your Soul." I heard this song without even knowing who TheyMightBeGiants ''were'', and STILL found myself humming this infuriatingly catchy melody for weeks afterwards.
** "Don't don't don't let's start, I've got a weak heart, and I don't get around how you get around..."
** Many of the songlets in the "Fingertips" ensemble have the potential to run on infinite loop in your head--even worse since they're ''so short.'' "Please pass the milk, please!"
*** The worst one, the one that you'll want to sing but the one that will get the weirdest looks: "I'm having a heart attack..."
** Particle Man...doing the things a particle can...When he goes into the water, does he get wet or does the water get him instead?

*** The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace...

** [[MalcolmInTheMiddle You're not the Boss of me, now. You're not the Boss of me, now, and You're not. so. big. Life is unfair...]]
** You know how children's songs are often insanely catchy? TMBG wrote "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3Kgj6EiZtw Never Go to Work]]", buried innocuously in a kid's video podcast: "On Monday, I never go to work/On Tuesday,I stay at home...". Just ''try'' to avoid humming it when you get up at the start of the week.
** And I am a snake head eating the head on the opposite siiiiiide/ I palindrome I. (Man-o-nam)I palindrome I.
** "It's for this experimental film, that nobody knows about but which..."
** "The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas." Ugh. For cruel, complicated reasons I once had that song blasted at me over and over again for almost an hour, and to this day it remains pleasurable and painful at the same time.

* Turisas, a folk-metal band, did a cover of the Disco song Rasputin by Boney M... It is one of the oddest mashups of genres ever (metal, folk AND disco? You'd never think it could possibly work) but it is just so damn catchy, especially the chorus ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdkBs0VCSX0 RA-RA-RASPUTIN, Lover of the Russian queen...]]''.
* Can't believe this isn't here. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBHJqtgo8RA&a "Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to..."]] Damn you, Tommy Tutone!
* A large number of Shania Twain songs: "Any Man of Mine," "Honey, I'm Home," "I'm Gonna Getcha Good!" and "Up!" in particular are some of the biggest for this troper.
* The Tweets: It's cruel to even mention it but... ''The Birdie Song'' (or Chicken Dance, if you prefer).
** [[NoSoup4Me I can attest to this with gusto]]. This song has been in my head since I were four years old. Anytime there's a lull in conversation I can be heard humming it. I'm considering suicide, if my friends don't kill me first.
** [[{{Pinkbaron}} I third this]], especially since it was pretty much the only song played at the Wurstfest she attended last year.

[[folder:W]]
* "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses. Yes, as a Christmas song, it only gets radio play a couple months out of the year, but it's still liable to suddenly pop in your head for no good reason in, say, mid-July. And of course the same band gave us the equally earwormy "I Know What Boys Like".
** After working in a retail establishment where this song was played between two and four times a day for the entire month of December, I no longer fear Hell.
* TomWaits "I Like My Town...with a little drop of, poison"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOxlFJbyl94 We sail tonight for Singapore, we're all as mad as hatters here...]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyef-BItce8 Boom Boom Acka lacka Boom Boom]], from Was (Not Was). I heard it once. Now it's whenever my mind goes blank. (Try meditating with that song in your head.)
* War: "All. My. Friends. Know the low rider. Wah wah wah wah wah wah wah waaaah!"
** So, we all agree that "Low Rider" is infinitely more awesome than "Why Can't We Be Friends?"
*** War's Ear Worms are pretty potent in general. If keyboardist Lonnie Jordan is to be believed, Bob Marley himself found the horn riff from "Slippin' into Darkness" so catchy he turned it into the main hook for "Get Up, Stand Up."
*** Interestingly, this Troper uses "Low Rider" as a cure for OTHER Ear Worms.
*** Also, "The Cisco Kid... waaaaas a frieeened of miii-iine..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bP21zUrMh7s Eleven Saints]] by Jason Webley. Man oh man, what's that guy got in his hand/ it's a egg, it's a spoon, it's a snapshot of the moon~

* {{Weezer}} matches their simple,catchy tunes and rocking choruses to some memorable videos,creating very persistent {{Ear Worm}}s; "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muP9eH2p2PI Pork and Beans]]" is the strongest yet,because its video references a hurricane of ''other'' memes off YouTube. I have had nothing else in my head for five days.
** God''dammit'' I just need to ''think'' of the first notes of that guitar riff, and then it's stuck in my head too. Doo. Doodoo doo doo. Doodoo. Wah!
** What's with these HOM-ies dissing my girl? Why do they got-ta front? What did we Ev-er do to these guys, that made them SO vi-o-lent?

** "Put your head in the microwave and give yourself a tan..."
** "Doooon't download this so-ong!"
** "You can use your ESP to learn to play guitar! ''Midnight Star'', I wanna know, I wanna know!"
** "I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane with a rabid wolverine in my underwear when suddenly..."
** The polka medleys. All of them. Take bits and pieces from a whole bunch of songs that are already earwormy in and of themselves, and add infectiously peppy accordion music. The combination is lethal.
** Never had a date, that you couldn't inflate... and you smell repulsive too...

* KanyeWest: Now I ain't sayin' she a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LU13MRtSD7E gold digger]], but she ain't messin' with no broke- broke- ah....
* ''Your Woman'' by White Town. It strikes me as odd that a song about a girl ditching a guy because he's an idiot (the song is sung by a male, and the most common theory about the gender switch in the lyrics is that he's sarcastically reading a Dear John letter) can become so catchy... to a man.
* "SMOKE! SMOKE! SMOKE! (THAT CIGARETTE)" by Tex Williams. also know as that catchy song at the start of ThankYouForSmoking
* "They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no..." (Amy Winehouse)
* The German ''a cappella'' group Wiseguys has a song entitled "Ohrwurm" about one of these songs. The song itself doubles as one.

* ''Chacarron Macarron'' by La Yanta is so strange and senselessly atonal, it becomes impossibly catchy.
** Why...why would you do such a thing...For crying out loud, I just stopped reacting to that a year ago...
* Yellow Magic Orchestra's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sk6o4GWFIV8 Rydeen]]. Heck, anything by YMO.

[[folder:Z]]
* "Catholic Girls" by FrankZappa. The perfect combination of repetitive lyrics and a catchy tune ensures that it gets stuck in my head whenever I so much as ''think'' about it.
** Oh man, you think Catholic Girls is an earworm? Well, let me tell you something. Don't know much about dancin', that's why I got this song. One of my legs is shorter than the other and both of my feets too long...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izQB2-Kmiic In the Year 2525]] by duo Zager and Evans. The cadence of the lyrics combined with dark imagery of the future is unusual, particularly for a pop song of the 1960s.
* I feel it work, you know, I feel it in bed. Can't get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmwG8WWmR8A The Zutons' "Pressure Point"]] outta my head...
* Anyone here fans of Norwegian singer Bertine Zetlitz? Some of her songs are kinda catchy, for example her single "Girl like you". (Magical, mystical, life's a ball, never had a girl like you...)
** Another of my favourites is another one of her singles, "Twisted little star". (Will you still remember, twisted little star, darker shining, silently surrender, twisted little smile, twisted's gonna last a while...)
* "In New York, the concrete jungle where dreams are made, there's nothin you can't do..."

* That stupid barking-dog Jingle Bells that every half-assed radio station feels they have to whip out every Christmas.
** It's worse than that. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jingle_Cats Jingle Cats was the original.]] And it's just cats meowing Christmas themes. And they tend to be bigger [[EarWorm Ear Worms]] than the songs they're based on. They even have [[http://www.youtube.com/user/meowychristmas their own Youtube account.]]
* If you live in Recife, then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgu9OzNS1Fk this song]] will never leave your head.
** ''Vem minha gatinha, venha meu amor, venha minha amaaaaada! Vamos fazer amor em cima da caasa!!''
** While we're in Brazil, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn1w4gr_V08 Eu Quero Ver o Oco]]" by hardcore band Raimundos manages to be heavy and catchy.
* I have ''no idea'' where this goes, but it's the EarWorm that has lead a REIGN OF TERROR on my school, and it must be brought to public attention: "Frére Jacques, frére Jacques, Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous? Sonnez les matines! Sonnez les matines! Ding, dang, dong. Ding, dang, dong." Especially as I suck at French and don't know the words, I'm just making sounds. I copied that from TheOtherWiki.
* ''Anything'' from the "Wall of Sound" of TheFifties and TheSixties. Phil Spector knew what he was doing [[strike: before]] even while he [[strike: went]] was going insane. On reading Volume 4 of ''{{Monster}}'', where a villain took his nickname from "Be My Baby", that song ''refused'' to leave my head. That was just from a ''mention'' of the damn thing!
** "Ain't no mountain high enough, ain't no valley long enough, ain't no river wide enough..."
* Dutch novelty hit "Er staat een paard in de gang" ("There's a horse in the hall") has been stuck in my head for the past month. I'm now trying to drive it out forcibly. With Benny Lava.
** Let me stick another one in there: "Ziet 'em goan, ziet 'em goan, me zen basketsloefkes oan" (To much dialect and to... 'strange' to put it in English)
* Pick a song from the 80s. ANY song. Doubly so if IT'S a one hit wonder.
* Nyan-nyan, nyan-nyan, Nihao, nyan, GORGEOUS, DELICIOUS, DELICULTURE!
* "I always flirt with death..." Its been in my head for MONTHS. Yes, all of it. Even the guitar solo? ESPECIALLY the guitar solo.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoGuoXuLmsk "Banana Man", by Tally Hall.]] You're welcome.
--->Do you see banana man / hopping jumping 'cross the white-hot sand? / Here he come with some for me / freshly pick'd from banana tree.
** Speaking of, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3ZAGBL6UBA it's peanut-butter jelly time!]]
* I, for reasons unknown to myself, get abrasive drum n' bass stuck in my head. A few examples: Aphex Twin's Ventolin, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQbH_FOQR1o Venetian Snare's Mutant Cunt Sniffer]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyw-_JxwFPY Squarepusher's Steinbolt.]]
** Speaking of Venetian Snares, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHDFMMvsT_k Bebikukorica Nigiri]] has been stuck in my head lately.
* Looking for the Perfect Beat. Beat-beat-beat-beat... ''DO DO DO DO DO! * SLAM* DO DO DO DO...'''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq38_MFTEm0 Time. Time, Time... TIME! TIME TO UNDER-STAND THE HORROR!!]]
* "Insomnia" by the lesser-known band [[http://www.louandpeter.com Lou and Peter Berryman]] is both about these and one of these (if only because of repetition). Although the full effect can't be experienced without hearing the song at least once, go ahead and look at the lyrics (under "Content")
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYALZWFfPO0 Oh, Mandy]], oh, Mandy, so killing, oh, Mandy...''
* Ever find yourself singing ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTc6g0ywnRc Hubba Hubba Zoot Zoot]]'' days after you played it? Despite the fact that you can't make out if the lyrics are ''words'' or merely ''odd sound combinations''?
* Oooh, aaah, oooh, aaah, oooh, aaah, get, get, get away, now...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmFDPFKTOvk "Spanish Flea"]] is a classic EarWorm.
* If you've ever heard the beginning of the song [[http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=g7Cdk8DQAGI Pirates by Bullets and Octane]], it won't leave your head.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBj1mTyGDgA Ejo, Captain Jack! (Ejo, Captain Jack!)]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3j2gAO7Jy0 Bring me back to the railroad track! (Bring me back to the railroad track!)]]
** When RadioactiveZombie was in Sea Cadet boot camp, this was the battalion-wide earworm. ''Put that rifle in my hand...'
* [[DarkInsanity13 Japanese music as a whole for me]]. Really. She doesn't care that she can't understand most of it, ''it just won't leave her freakin' head.''
* Koumi Hirose (of Cardcaptor Sakura fame) has one from her song titled "Promise". It's named 'Geddan'... because it starts at the refrain with the words "GET! DOWN!". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ELzjRHPnUs This is one Touhou-related example.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omJ4t-h_CQI Daite Senorita]], Yamashita Tomohisa. I have lost count of how many times its played in my head. Damn good song, though.
** Also by Yamashita Tomohisa and Kamenashi Kazuya is their song as the temporary J-pop duo Shuji to Akira, known as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDoQhUQ75pg Seishun Amigo]]. I have had it stuck on repeat in my head for 3 years now, to the point where it has become a mental screensaver.
* If you can manage not to get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YM6E4ZwrV4 Mayonaka no Shadow Boy]] by Hey! Say! JUMP stuck in your head, I commend you for being the pretty much the only one.
* I defy anyone to listen to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akMR7erPCtU Kitto Daijoubu]] by Arashi all the way through and not end up with it stuck in their heads
** Same goes for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzkgyo7S4pk&feature=related Sakura Sake.]]
*** Not to mention Matsumoto Jun's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmZwZcyjn1w Yabai-Yabai-Yabai.]]
* [[HelloProject Morning Musume]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXhk_9kgy4w "Happy Summer Wedding"]] "Ba-da-pa-da, ba-da-pa-da, ba-da-pa-da-pa-pa, ''hai!''"
* [[TheStray Oh, it hit me ''long'' before that]]. For that matter, a lot of surfing music is this way. Just look at ''Misirlou'' (used as the title of Pulp Fiction) and ''Soy Bomb'' (used in GuitarHero). Surf music seems to eat and breathe this trope...
** EVERYBODY'S GONE SURFING! Surfin' USA.
*** Ah-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA Wipeout!

* "[[http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=T2gBmRuMbCw In the good old summertime, in the good old summertime, strolling through the shady lines with your baby mine...]]" A (very) oldie, but a classic.

* The beat that my heart skipped sounded like this, BOM-BOM-BOM-BADY-lllaaaaaa-BADY-lawdy-LAWDY-laaaaa...
** Thou shall not make repetitive, generic music.
* For some reason, Dan Fogelberg's "Run For The Roses" (a sweet, pretty, TearJerker ballad about the life of a Kentucky Derby racehorse): "Born in the valley/And raised in the trees/Of western Kentucky/On wobbly knees/With Mama beside you to help you along,/You'll soon be a-growin' up strong..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZQkvu9OjHo This]] accursed song is the most annoying song known to humanity. Years after first hearing it, I am ''still'' possessed with the urge to break out screaming "MY BOYFRIEND! HE LOVES ME! HE LOVES ME VERY MUCH! MY BOYFRIEND! HE'S SPECIAL! WE ALWAYS KEEP IN TOUCH! HE'S FUNNY! MY HONEY! HE LOVES ME VERY MUCH! MY BOYFRIEND, SO FINE!". This gets me REALLY weird looks. I may be gay, but it's ''really'' not helping his attempts to stay in the closet.
* "Heads, shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes..."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OzWIFX8M-Y&fmt=18 "DotA"]] by Basshunter. "Vi sittar har i venten, och spelar lite [[DefenseOfTheAncients DotA]]..."
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYQUsp-jxDQ "Boten Anna"]]. "Jag känner en bot. Hon heter Anna. Anna heter hon..."
* Speaking of asking for your attention: "BOOM! Do ya want it? BOOM! Do ya need it? BOOM! Let me hear it! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxo3OnekPg8 Ladies and Gentlemen!]]"
** Also: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hkCvJKsYHs BOOM!]] Here comes the BOOM! Ready or not!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfHD33flWaQ "Under my skin, there's a fire burning, deep down inside there is loooove..."]] Though not so much that part as the StupidStatementDanceMix opening, which sounds so like nothing on Earth that when I first heard it, I initially assumed it to be a J-pop song. (The fact that it was paired with anime pictures didn't help.)
* Old Zakk Wylde's song has [[http://pl.youtube.com/watch?v=vExXSh_FPfA a very catchy banjo intro]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8BWBn26bX0 That boy needs therapy.]] Tell me Frontier Psychiatrist isn't the biggest earmworm ever?
* Runnin through the monsoon, beyond the world...
** For that matter, the obnoxious talk show host's parody of it ... I can't seem to find a link.
** This gets really irritating with Tokio Hotel when you listen to some of their early German work from back when they were younger, because you can't sing along because you ''can't pronounce the words''.
* While we're going international, we can't neglect [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNTgkb_8R7g this]] beauty by Versailles. That guitar will never leave.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pt-NvcuDVBc This]]. And it's got a horrible name, to boot.
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0I8_bOAuso O Fortuna]]'' from Orff's "Carmina Burana."
* An [[http://www.backyardgardener.com/loowit/song/song71.html absolutely nonsensical]] little work-song-turned-campfire-ditty that I have heard spelled at least two different ways. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6c8nPUbLvU Here]] is a high-school choir singing it.
* "Je Veux te Voir" by YELLE ({{NSFW}}, especially for the bilingual).
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvIw5ZqC1ms "Alright now fellas,"]] "YEAH!" "Now what's cooler than bein' cool?" "ICE COLD!"
* For me there are quite a few country music songs that are like this, including but not limited to the following
** Why Haven't I Heard From You (1994)
** Bop (1985)
** Gonna Take A Lot Of River (1987)
* Sugar, do do do do do do, oh, honey honey.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Kro-uzMgL0 "Give Me Just A Little More Time" by The Chairmen Of The Board]] is enough of an earworm on it's own, but [[http://daytrotter.com/article/1607/spinto-band-encore The Spinto Band's cover]] turns it into three earworms at once by combining it with "Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani and "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy, both of which share the same chords.
* I find that songs with "na na na" hooks get stuck in his head a lot, such as Hey Jude, Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye, Land of a Thousand Dances, Centerfold, Katamari on the Rocks, E-Pro, Hush...
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AnYshBEOYc L'Arlesienne: Prelude]]'' (sorry, the sound quality isn't the best)
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSVEC_DbhL8 Kuutamolla]]'' The phrase 'Se ei mee pois', is Finnish for 'It won't go away'.
* Cadence calls. Those lovely little ditties that people in the armed forces run (sorry, double-time) to. Simple, repetitive, with motivating and/or amusing lyrics - in other words, the perfect earworms.
** "Everywhere We Go" (most of you know it as the stadium song from ''Remember The Titans'')
** "My Grandmama Was 91"
** "Ain't No Use In Looking Down"
* Sleeping is giving in, no matter what the time is... sleeping is giving in, so lift your heavy eyelids! Damn you, Arcade Fire...
* Almost anything by Röyksopp. Their latest track, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmcPeuf5aXo "Happy Up Here"]], is especially addictive (and the music video rocks too).
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnMjU8qNi6s HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. HAPPY BIRTHDAY...]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6MsGsNkFqI "William Howard Taft"]]. Luckily it can be cured by being infected by a different song.
* The Deep Dance 50 - ''55 minutes'' of 90s dance megamix (incorporating many of the earworms mentioned above). Add to that a similarly awesome AMV and you get [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MkwcOSG2XA Animix]].
* Windmills Of Your Mind lampshades itself.
* The Popcorn Song found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9N4ckFN96-k here]]. I find this ear worm useful to blocking out other ear worms.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6wsCZ7Ft_Z8 You put the boom boom into my heart ~ You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts ~ JITTERBUG into my brain ~ It goes a bang bang bang 'til my feet do the same ~ But something's buggin' me, something ain't right ~ My best friend told me what you did last night ~ You left sleepin' in my bed ~ I was dreamin', but I should have been with you instead ~ Wake me up before you go-go ~ Don't leave me hangin' on like a yo-yo...]]

* Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoN6XfyQsr4 Thou Shalt Always Kill]]". Contains a LampshadeHanging with "Thou shalt not make repetitive, generic music" - repeated four times.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PP1HEFlkdY And we can build this dream forever/standing strong forever/nothing's gonna stop us now...]]
* "Let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the floor...let the bodies hit the...* ching ching* ...FLOOOOORRRRR..." Used as the theme for about a gazillion wrestling pay-per-views...
* Ai yai yai, I'm your little butterfly. Green, black, and blue make the colors in the sky...
* A disturbing number of chiptunes are highly ear wormy, [[YourMileageMayVary if you're in to that sort of thing]]. Examples of ear worms are:
** Dma-SC's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hdhyfNsZRo Visitors from Dreams]], from {{Darwinia}}
** Most songs by Anamanaguchi, particularly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8FXk8zoMMo Power Supply]].
** Trash80's B(a)it and Switch.
* {{Demoscene}} music tends to have its share of Ear Worms, too.
* Mekon/Röyksopp's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1C7F6Px25g&fmt=18 Please Stay remix/Don't Go]], sometimes played at TV sporting event football venues.
** or mostly anything by Röyksopp for that matter: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl4rwMZWATs&fmt=18 Eple]] (which was used as an Apple start up) and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmcPeuf5aXo Happy Up There]]
* I have loads of these:
** Probably a lesser known example, but "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvnHtO6daQM Right About Now! The Funk Soul Brother!]]"
*** Damn that song and Digimon for throwing it into their movie. I still dig out the soundtrack to that bloody thing to listen to all the Ear worms on it.
** Crazy Frog's version of Axel F
** The [[HighOctaneNightmareFuel parade theme]] from Paprika, of all things. Here it is in ITS terrifying(ly addictive) glory: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4doHF0dIuh0
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8cCI_XDQWb0 If you do not know this song,]] you need to listen to more music.
** Once I ran to you ... now I run from you ... this tainted love you've given ... I give you all a boy could give you ... take my tears and that's not nearly ALL!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LA-AvBjBm5k "If I Only Had a Brain"]] by MC 900ft Jesus. Not even [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROwwYeIbHcA Beavis & Butt-Head]] could resist it.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MnjoIkq4y7s Fantastic Cat.]] The sheer weirdness, and pidgin English lyrics make it even more so.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w45Qi7Nki54 Feeeeeeed my fiii-iiiire]], let me put some dust on your fa-ace. Even non-German speakers are affected by Eisbrecher.
* "Living in the limelight, the universal dream, for those who wish to see..."
* Several of {{Dong Bang Shin Ki}}'s songs (both the Korean and Japanese ones) are pretty persistant Ear Worms. Some of the best examples are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtJS32n6LNQ Mirotic]] (Woah~oh~oh!), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZxK60hbX-s Rising Sun]] (RISING SUUUUUUUUUUUN!), [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usF2ihdYIj8 Wrong Number]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2MiiASgig0 Triangle]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5mwsRSeFvs Hug]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im2ynMIfIjM Hey!(Don't bring me down)]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAy-VZANe3Y Survivor]] (oh gods, I can't stop singing "Ima daremo ga Sur~vi~v~o~r!")
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnzHtm1jhL4 They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!!!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TXAJJFljks Ho-Ho Hee-Hee, to the FUNNY FARM! Where LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL ALL THE TIME!!!]]
* I don't want to talk to you, I just want bang bang bang! I don't want to know your name, I just want bang bang bang! I don't want to meet your mom, I just want bang bang bang!
* "I know it's up for me, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOCRPrEAVxU if you steal my sunshine!"]] For me, it's largely just the chorus, the looped sample of "More More More", and, for some reason, the line "L-A-T-E-R that week", but that arguably makes it worse.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=488YxXFIpz8 THIS!!!]] "Caipirinha, caipirinha..."
* "It's no surprise to me, I am my own worst enemy. 'Cause every now and then I kick the livin' shit outta me."
* "I don't wanna work! I wanna bang on the drum all day! I don't wanna play! I just wanna bang on the drum all day!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Il594GeNnpo Faggoty Attention]] by Adam Joseph. It repeats in your head over and over ''and over and over again''.
* I'm your Tamagotchi, so happy that you love me, and we should be together, forever and forever!
* They call us problem child, We spent our lives on trials, WE ARE THE YOUTH GONE WILD
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSxoKQ_sWYY I can't say no to you/Shouldn't let you torture me so sweetly...]]
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Seals Wanna Bop With You Baby/Wanna Be-Bop with you till the break of day]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo-RJ_Z5odI Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat/Gonna take a lot of river all the live long day/ Gonna take the Mississippi, the Monongahela and the Ohio/Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away]]
* But you don't want me any more, how can it be? Look what you've done to me! Oh, oh!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4aqM_wu6Ns Jozin! Z bazin!]]
** Oh, there's even [[http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/337791 a metal cover]] (by Dawid Mika).
* Why! Do! You! ''Build'' me up (build me up), ''but''tercup, baby, just to ''let'' me down (let me down) and jerk me around?
** While we're on the Motown kick, how about "Heat Wave"?
* Push it to the limit!
* Marlene watches from the wall, her mocking smile says it all, she records the rise and fall of every soldier passing. But the only soldier now is me, I'm fighting things I cannot see, I think it's called my destiny but I am changing. Marlene on the wall.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfEE_nYehZ8 Dragostea Din Tei, better known as Numa Numa.]] Full feckin' stop.
* Fight the Power! Fight the power, fight the power! Fight the power, fight the power! Fight the power! We got to fight the powers that be!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WIeEuRtEW8 WELCOME TO THE TERRORDOME!]]
* Daisy Bell. Why, oh why is this song so catchy?! I've had it running in my head for a long while now. If it keeps up... I'm going to go insane... [[TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey My mind is going... I can feel it...]]
* The guitar riff underlying Creme's "Politician".
** Speaking of Ear Worm-y riffs, how about the ''diabolical'' guitar in "Plug in Baby"?
* Biffy Clyro's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tm5PFIRdPfQ ''Mountains'']] is one. Toss up between the chorus of '''"I AM A MOUNTAIN, I AM THE SEA, YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME!!!"''' or the bit after the second chorus with the cool piano in the background; ''"Cos you tear us apart / With all the things you don't like / You can't understand / That I won't leave / 'Til we're finished here / And then you'll find out / Where it all went wrong."'' [[MrBrownstone I can't stop hearing it several times a day]], starting from waking up in the morning. Even after hearing it on loop hundreds of times and learning how to play the guitar parts and sing the lead vocals at the same time, also on loop. It would be NightmareFuel if it weren't for the fact that I still love the song and thinks it is one of the best rock tracks ever made.

* ...Hungeeeer...
* ...come with me...
* Cool for Cats. DAMN YOU, SQUEEZE!
* Those who have heard the Ievan Polka know what I am talking about when I say "HELP!!!"
* Mistabishi - "Printer Jam". Built around the screeching sound of a dot-matrix printer.
* Musician El Guincho is very fond of these, exhibits A and B: [[http://www.last.fm/music/El+ Guincho/_/Antillas here]] and [[http://www.last.fm/music/El+ Guincho/_/Kalise here]]
* The band The Illuminoids has the tendency to mashup earworms TOGETHER, which tends to make them even catchier. Which is somewhat amusing when they mix the rolling stones, nirvana, and some recent hip-hop song together.
* I don't know about y'all, but I'm beginning to regret him ever getting a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8FXuvuCCxw brand new pigbag]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HDM3eYp4KQ As we go on... we remember...]] So cheesy. So overdone. SO CATCHY!
* For Flemish tropers: Samson en Gert songs. Especially their earlier ones. "Dit is de Samsonrock/De Samsonrock/die dansen alle honden in hun hondenhok!"
* The daughtry's 'I got over you' don't have a link to the song but damn if those chorus lyrics don't stick in your head.
* [[DanceDanceRevolution Sweet little bumblebee, ]][[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Cw3-nHh-NY I know what you want from me (doot doo doo doo doo da da)]]
* "I always ''turn the car around''..."
* The abominable "Scotty Doesn't Know" has haunted me. I do not like heavily sexual music in most cases, ''especially'' when it's that descriptive and it's about cheating. This led to some uncomfortable moments.
** I understand that opinion, but after seeing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dldH3_K8haE& this]] Star Trek vid, can find nothing but lols anymore.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_g7fZFSMQDs "This flea is you and I, it's a bad thing, but a little thing, but a little thing..."]]
** From the same group: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PDl2IAlluc&feature=response_watch&fmt=18 "Electronics, electronics, moving with light..."]]
* Say what you will about Ice-T's notorious song Cop Killer, but once you've heard it...."COP KILLAH! Bettah you than MEEE! COP KILLAH! FUCK POLICE BRUTALITY!" It just won't ''freakin' '''leave!'''''
* Any project involving Mike Patton that isn't Faith No More (or maybe Peeping Tom) doesn't seem like a likely source for earworms, but then somehow there's the MadnessMantra style chorus of Tomahawk's "Laredo": "The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river! The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n371zCCYpts YOU'RE A SHARK]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-KWEbRRM-o Cause I'm Real! (The way you walk, the way you move the way you talk)]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tL86Qqn0jE MAKIN' UP A SONG ABOUT COOOORALIIINE~!]] Oh, {{Coraline}}. Coraline, Coraline, Coraline.
* Any of the songs from the musical adaption of ReeferMadness. Oh, good lord. That movie is One Ear Worm after another.
* I'd like to nominate [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82RWZjmmXBc EXEC_PAJA/.#Misya extracting]]. I think it's a great song, but do you know how ''annoying'' it is to have a song stuck in your head when you can't even understand the language it's sung in? For over a month? With no sign of it leaving any time soon?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHcVU5cGUNE Stamp On the Ground]] is certainly ear-worm worthy. Listen to it all the way through twice, and try to deny it.
* Dui mian de nu hai kan guo lai, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pUM2J1JR7w KAN GUO LAAAIIII]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tk4gRBgDQw Breaker one-nine, this here's Rubber Duck...]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-A2f_UZtjY Sway, sway baby, you're so audio!]] [[LyricalDissonance Kill your boyfriend, we could be together!]] Damn you ShortStack, damn you...
* Dunno if this is already on here but: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JM-FzoFq7I WE LIKE TO PAHTY! WE LIKE, WE LIKE TO PAHTY!]]
* I have recently discovered the Ear Worm [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSgiXGELjbc A Glorious Dawn]]
* "One, is the loneliest number there ever was...", and "Du nuh du nuh du nuh du na na na na nuh... when you're strange..." (Three Dog Night "The Loneliest Number", and Echo and the Bunnymen "People Are Strange".)
** The original "People Are Strange", by The Doors, is one in its own right.
* Canadian Artists are particularly horrible about this. Besides Moe Clark and Nelly Furtado, listed above, main offenders here.
** Gimme Sympathy by Metric has lived in my head for days, and it's my most played song on iTunes.
** 1 2 3 4 by Feist. Oh lord. Good luck if this gets in there.
** "[[AlanisMorissette And I'm here, to remind you of the cross I bear that you gave to me... you, you, you, oughta know!]]"
* Pretty much ''any'' song that repeats the same words over and over again. Example, "The Space Between" by Dave Matthews. Bonus points if the repeated words are NOT the song title. Example, [[strike: "Some People"]] "If I Ain't Got You" by AliciaKeys.
* What's that coming over the hill? Is it a monster? Is it a monsteeeeeeeer?
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2qtMAqelSg "What the hell am I doing Drinking in LA at twenty-six...?"]]
* Songs from childhood like:
** John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt
** I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee
** Found a Peanut
* Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5C6X9vOEkU Banana Phone!]] It will drive you bananas.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4wW9PjDf1s We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful]]. Am I the only one who thinks this is cursedly catchy? It was so catchy just reading this page today it randomly popped into my head. I have no idea why.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vo7Sng5Jeb0&fmt=18 I'm bringing Paxil back.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nabYYdQkS58 Katyusha]]. What? There's a ''reason'' it's one of the two (or three, if you want to count Korobeiniki) most-recognisably Russian songs that exist.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tntA_4IoxbE White Army, Black Baron]] 'nuff said.
* Living miles, miles away from Denmark apparently doesn't prevent you from staying awake 24 hours just because you keep hearing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsMgRMmusw4 Der- Der- Der party i provinseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!!!!!]] in your head.
* Any sort of classic western ditty. Clementine ("Oh my darlin, oh my darlin, oh my ''darlin'' Clementine! You are lost and gone forever, [[LyricalDissonance dreadful sorry, Clementine!]]") and "I've Been Workin' On the Railroad" are particularly catchy.
* The ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kK5XBaslNd0 Song of the Volga Boatmen]]'' is a Russian folk song that's become synonymous for laborous toiling and the RedScare alike, though cases of the latter have nosedived since the end of the cold war.

*Nikki Yanofsky's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7v0o27BPIIk I Believe]], the anthem of the Vancouver 2010 Winter OlympicGames. [[OverlyLongName Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium]] managed to get this song stuck in the head of nearly every Canadian during the Games by creating an instrumental version to play at the end of each commercial break. The conclusion of each break was announced with: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aT_B3_d8ZeA DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / DUHDUHDA DUH DA DAAAAAA! / DUHDUHDA DA DUHDUH DA / BUH DUHDUH DUHDUHDUHDUHDUHDUH DADADA!!]] However, the song seemed to simply disappear from the heads of everyone, along with the rest of the Olympic spirit, following the closing of the Games at the beginning of March.
