* An In-Universe Example: In ''Fanfic/OriginStory'', Alex Harris is trying to concentrate during a strategy meeting with ComicBook/TheAvengers and she finds herself half-humming, half-singing a MajorGeneralSong (that started with the line , “I am the very model of a busty superheroine…” -- ItMakesSenseInContext) she'd seen on YouTube that just happened to have been about Alex herself. When the Black Widow asks her if something's wrong, Alex tries to explain, badly. She specifically calls it an EarWorm, and can't figure out whether she is more annoyed by the fact that she can't get it out of her head, or that the damned thing exists in the first place.
