Persistent earworms

Do you have any particular song that sometimes (or often) starts playing in your head without any apparent reason?


For me it's most often the riff from White Stripes' Seven Nation Army. Sometimes I have to hum it out loud when it starts playing in my head.

I love that song. I wish that song would pop up in my head more. The ones that pop up are usually oldies, which im not fond of lol.

Sometimes I swear I can pick up radio frequencies with my brain, because the weirdest stuff, that I don't even like comes into my head.

Most recently this...

Quite often I get bits of songs stuck in my head. Like that David Bowie bit in the Arcade Fire tune "Thought you were praying to the resurrector, Turns out it was just a Reflektor"

Last week I woke up with No Rain by Blind Melon in my head every day. Then it was replaced by Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi.

I have a trick to getting rid of earworms that won't go away. Start running Lump by Presidents of the USA in your head. It will get rid of anything. But then you usually have to hear Lump for a while, which might be just as annoying.

Sometimes I get that first 10 seconds of the Beatles' Come Together

Really.

I end up speaking to my girlfriend to the tune of this song all the time.

"My name is Andrew/ I am gonna take a shower..."

And so on.

She's yet to dump me!

I like putting whatever food we are having into the Bagel Bites jingle.

Cereal in the morning, cereal in the evening, cereal at supper time! When cereal's on a bagel, you can eat cereal anytime!

I've had that one, and I think I've caught it from your post.

"daddaling dow, daddaling dow dow dow dow, da daddaling da da da da dow"

taz-pie

for me it is this strange version of sebastian grainger "are there ways to come home" that i got from a threadless music share thingy YEARS ago. it is not the normal version, and i can't seem to find it on youtube. it starts with a very specific drum rhythm followed by strumming. to this day it is my default beat in my head. WHYYYY

Pretty much any of the Bob's Burgers songsā€¦ they are all fucking awesome, so having them stuck in my head is kinda great.

EN AJUSTES

When I'm walking in a hurry, the line "It's not like that anymore, huh-huh, no it's not like that anymore", from Morphine, pops up in my head.
