Thread: The "Beautiful" or "Annoying" Earworm thread.

    The "Beautiful" or "Annoying" Earworm thread.

    Beauty Queen-For Your Pleasure-Roxy Music-I can not get this song out of my head. This has always been my favorite song from a great album.

    Ever since the Grammys, I can't get the theme song to Hunger Games out of my head. I liked the movie, LOVED the books, and the song really fits the despair and terror of the storyline. Impatiently waiting for the second movie! (Nov. 2013 )



    Otherwise, I also have various Genesis songs running through my head from ATTWT at any given moment because this album has lately been discussed all over the web. Mostly it's been Many Too Many.

    I have The Pentangle's version of The Jaynette's "Sally Go Round the Roses" stuck in my head recently.

    The one that I've had for the longest time, the one that I most often whistle or hum while I'm out and about, is 'If' by Bread. Don't know why.

    Indeed. I'd take an electric drill to my head for that.

    I am very happy that my latest earworm has been Oblivion Sun's March Of The Mushroom Men.

    Good afternoon Sweet Melissa (pun intended) that is actually a lovely song that doesn't receive the publicity of her more popular songs. I love "Many Too Many" as well.

    ^ That song definitely sticks in your head forever and all you have to do is hear it once!

    Lately its been "Straight and Narrow" by Richard Thompson. Its a cool song, so I don't mind at all.
    Check out Colouratura's sophomore release Unfamiliar Skies - out this spring on Melodic Revolution Records!

    I cannot stand Taylor Swift in any other way, shape, or form, but if you didn't know it was her, this song is truly beautiful. Also, the backing band, The Civil Wars... I'm not sure who they are, but I've seen their name bandied about a lot lately.

    Oh, and thanks. Now I have a certain Allman Bros. song in my head.

    Ever since having to play "Call Me Maybe" at a couple of wedding gigs, that tune gets stuck in my head sometimes too. There must be a part of me that hates myself.

    My wife and I went to a Met game at Citi Field and every time Justin Turner came up to bat, that stupid song came on and all the women including my wife same and danced to the song... UGGH!

    If anyone's familiar with the show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, my son's been watching it and I've seen pretty many episodes. There's one where the dope who wants to marry the bartender or whoever she is puts on a musical to try to impress her. Those horrible songs are stuck in my head for like two days now.

    This one has been stuck in my head for years, I think it must be the old school rhythm and beat... The dobro wont go away either... If someone asked me to recite the lyrics, I could. Love it but its stuck.

    Still alive and well...

    Does it matter that this waste of time is what makes a life for you?

    Every now and again Tool's Vicarious gets stuck in my head.
    I can usually dislodge it with Island by Gosta Berlings Saga, which presents another earworm problem.
    After that I just listen to classic rock for a while and it make me turn off music for a few hours.

    They are a great folky band that's fairly new. Really nice songs.

    Once every couple of days (or hours, minutes, what have you) the opening drum/percussion riff to R.E.S. comes into my head, and then suddenly everything is ok!
