->Everything they do is accompanied by the same maddening music, which plays over and over again until it drills itself into the tooth of your mind. There are said to be many levels to the video game, but I succeeded in penetrating only to the second before I realized I had to abandon Ninja Turtles that instant, or risk permanent psychic damage.

->''"They're so annoying, all these ear worms\\
E'en if you like the song\\
The timing generally is wrong\\
There's just one way to lose these ear worms\\
Plant in someone else's head,\\
And make it play inside their brain instead"''

->ATC was a German-based pop group made up of a Kiwi, an Italian, an Australian and a Brit. They were the accidental toilet baby of the Itís A Small World ride and Aqua. They had a couple of semi-hits, but their biggest hit was the 2000 eardrum assault called "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRvGZffXhfk Around The World (La La La La La).]]" "Around The World" was a cover of a Russian pop song and it sounded like something Eiffel 65 barfed up. That song was everywhere. It was even in commercials. You know you danced to it on a box under a strobe light at an 18 and over club. Once it got in your head, it was hard to get out. Whenever I get my usual check-up at the free clinic, the free clinic doctor looks into my ears with that ear dildo thing and asks, ''"What is that crusty white stuff clinging to the walls of your ears? Jizz?"'' And I always say, ''"No doctor, itís pieces from that La La La La song which have been there for years."''

->In 1992, you couldn't get rid of the song "Achy Breaky Heart." It was the Lyme disease of music. For the entire year, it was how most radio stations told listeners that [[SoOkayItsAverage another 180 seconds had passed.]] If you lived in the country, this song spent more time in your ear than ear mite eggs and [[DeepSouth cousin tongues]] combined.

->You know what the infuriating thing about pop music is? Even when it's expressing the most repugnant sentiments, you just can't get it out of your head because it's so irritatingly catchy; and despite how much you hate it, or even ''because'' of how much you hate it, it just sticks in your head and you find yourself singing it to yourself against your will, and you feel like you wanna take a cheese grater to your brain to scrape it out.

->[[Music/BingCrosby Missed the Saturday dance, heard they crowded the floor]], [[BlahBlahBlah duh duh duh-duh...]]' I can almost carry a tune but I can't remember the lyrics to any song, including the inspired lyrics to our national anthem. But this song, and those notes, have been sounding in my head for over half a century, after I heard them playing at a dance hall near the army camp where I was stationed.
