Where can I put this song? I'm not even sure if I can put it, though, since it's in another language.

I can't get YouTube at the moment so I can't answer the first question, but for the second item, you can put songs of any language — even one you don't speak — here.

  • In Western Animation/Despicable Me, Pharell Williams's theme song of the movie is undiluted Cool and Win.

it's not an in-story reference to an Ear Worm, and as far as I can tell, it's already listed on the appropriate page.

Since I don't know how to edit/ do HTML. Dave Barry has a book devoted to "bad/annoying songs that get stuck in your head"

Should we add a new section just for Vocaloid songs or just stick them under "Other?"

I'm wondering if there's a specific trope for sound /effects/. This is closer to the tetris effect where you hear a certain ring, ding or shuffle that is so close to the game noise that you immediately wonder if your computer's still on.. Even when you KNOW you turned it off.. Or are on a mile walk in the woods away from it. It's not usually a whole song, more like the blip of opening the menu, or the ring/click noise of using a move. My specific experience comes from a multitude of MM Os where the click of the menu can be mistaken for anything from tapping the table with something to your cat stepping on the paper nearby. In any case, I still look right at it expecting to see my laptop screen there and a menu opening on any one of the games. This is especially awkward when it's a snapping twig under my foot while walking around outside.
