    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.
  • O.A.R.:
    • "I always turn the car around..."
  • Oasis:
    • "And maybeeeeeeeee...you're gonna be the one that saves meeeeeeeee....and after aaaaaaaaaall...you're my wonderwaaaaaaaaaall..."
    • Th 50s lounge singer version is even worse/better.
    • Someday you will find me, caught beneath the landsliiiiiiide, in a champagne supernova in the skyyyyyyyy...
    • And sooooooooooooooooooooo Sally can waaaaaaaait...
    • I need to be myself... * guitar* I can't be no one else...
    • Go let it out, go let it in...
    • I'm all into the blinding light, come in, come out tonight...
    • The summer sun, it blows my mind, fallin' down on all that I ever know...
  • Frank Ocean's "Pyramids" is quite the earworm, in spite of — or perhaps because of — its length.
    • "Bad Religion" and "Thinking 'Bout You" also
  • All of the electroswing Odjbox has composed. Especially "Bakers Dozen".
  • Of Monsters and Men's song Little Talks is one of these if you ever heard one.
    • To a slightly lesser extent, "Mountain Sound" is one too.
  • Jacques Offenbach's "Infernal Galop" from Orpheus in the Underworld. Never heard of it, you say? It's better known as The Cancan Song.
  • The Offspring:
    • "Why Don't You Get A Job" (already mentioned in the Beatles entry), "Self Esteem," "Come Out and Play" (YOU GOTTA KEEP 'EM SEPARATED!), "All I Want" (double for Crazy Taxi 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.
      • I BELIEVE IT'S MY GOD-GIVEN RIGHT! TO DESTROY EVERYTHING IN MY SIGHT!
    • I WANT YOU ALL TATTOOED, I WANT YOU BAD, BAD, BAD! COMPLICATED, X-RATED...
    • I'M NOT THE ONE WHO ACTED LIKE A HOE, WHY MUST I BE THE ONE WHO HAS TO KNOW?
    • HEY, MAN, YOU DISRESPECTING ME? TAKE HIM OUT (YOU GOTTA KEEP EM SEPARATED)
    • YAH YAH YAH YAH YAH, IT'S ALL I WANT!
    • AND IT FEELS, AND IT FEELS LIKE HEAVEN IS SO FAR AWAY...
    • I WILL SHUT MY EYES, IT HAMMERS IN MY HEAD
    • IF WE DON'T MAKE IT ALIVE, IT'S A HELL OF A GOOD DAY TO DIE...
    • SHIT IS FUCKED UP!
    • I CAN'T GET MY HEAD AROUND YOU!
    • I'VE GOT A BAD HABIT!
    • CHANCES THROOOOOWN! NOTHING'S FREEEEEEEEEEE!

    • "Weird Science".
    • "Only a Lad", thanks to Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s.

  • Step 1. Listen to a One Direction song. Step 2. Try to get it out your head.
    • YOU DON'T KNOW-O-OH! YOU DON'T KNOW YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL!
    • GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT OF MY HEAD! AND FALL INTO MY ARMS INSTEAD! I DON'T! I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, BUT I NEED THAT ONE THING!
      • More like "ONE DIR! ECTION! GET OUT OF MY HEAD! AND TAKE ALL YOUR FANS WITH YOU INSTEAD!"
    • You forgot the most obvious earworm of them all: AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!note 
    • In fact, Up All Night is basically a huge, incessant earworm.
    • TONIGHT LET'S GET SOME! AND LIVE WHILE WE'RE YOUNG!
    • I'm in love with you....And all these little things...
    • ...AND LET ME KISS YOU! NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA-NA!!
    • One way...or another...I'm gonna getcha...I'm gonna GETCHA GETCHA GETCHA GETCHA!
    • AND WE DANCED ALL NIGHT TO THE BEST SONG EVER!

  • O Fortuna from Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana."
  • Outkast:
    • "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... Forever ever? Forever ever?" lodged in your brain, well, forever.
    • "Hey Ya!" is even worse.
      • Shake it like a corduroy ninja! (I witnessed the birth of that mondegreen.)

  • Ozzy Osbourne:
  • Emily Osment:
  • Damn you, Germans! With your Octoberfest you lull us in a false sense of security... JUST TO STRIKE WITH MUSIC THAT YOU WILL NEVER FORGET! ...Anton, Anton, Anton, Anton, Anton!
  • Mike Oldfield, anyone? Come on, I know you're all hearing the opening riff from Tubular Bells now.
    • This troper's family play In Dulci Jubilo every Christmas. It is RIDICULOUSLY catchy.
  • Anything recorded by Odyssey Music is major Ear Worm Material.
