Share the songs that have recently burrowed into your brain through the auditory canal.

I only just discovered this song by Thalía that she came out with 13 years ago, and now it's taken up permanent residence in my skull. If you like Latin music, you can invite it into your skull, too:

Thalía - Arrasando

Some others that have stuck in my head recently:

The Piano Guys ft. Lindsey Sterling - Mission Impossible

Duwende - As (Stevie Wonder acapella cover)



To make sure that ear worm gets nice and fat in your cerebral cortex, you can use this site to put any YouTube video on repeat.

I am totally infatuated with Daft Punk's new single: Get Lucky

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive - I hadn't paid too much attention to this song til I watched the music video, now I can't get it out of my head.

Psy - Gentleman - is very much an earworm.

Mystery Skulls - Money - because of the video linked.

... AND IT'S IN MY HEAD AGAIN. CURSE YOU.

Madeon - Finale

Beethoven's Choral Fantasy - the last part, anyway. It's so close to the Ode to Joy but not quite!

For me, the all time Ear Worm --in a good way --was this song, Panis Et Circensus (Bread and Circuses):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgWFL0jP0Qc

I heard it once and had it in my head for a year, until I successfully tracked it down. They became one of my all time favorite bands after that. Still haven't gotten tired of it.

Fortunately for me it's usually only the songs I like that get stuck.

Same here. Although, the best way to ear worm myself is through English phrases. Like, DuckTales moon theme isn't going to work. But Crazy Duck In Space might.

Also, drachefly, I listened to that whole Beethoven video. I don't know if that was the intent or not, but either way, well done.

Unfortunately, I have gotten some chibi-fluff video game background music stuck in my head. Ngau is playing Atelier Rorona somewhat obsessively at the moment, and that #&^%$! jingle keeps popping into my head, unbidden. The worst part is that it isn't even good chibi-fluff music. It's quite mediocre, as far as these things go.

That... That was one of the most bizzare things I've ever seen in a game.

Ruan: You should check out Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix's version of "Radioactive". I like it much better than the original.

Already have - I'm a fan of both Stirling and Pentatonix. I wouldn't say I like it better than the original, but I do enjoy it.

I... I'm not sure if I want to buy a copy of this game so I can play it or bury it.

I should probably mention that I've played Psychonauts*, so when I say it's one of the weirdest things I've ever seen in a video game, that's saying something.

* If you haven't played it, Psychonauts features (among other things): psychically enhanced animals, a giant mental censor attempting to kill you with a huge rubber stamp, a dance party with a secret room containing nightmares about burning children, a war zone and a circus strewn with steak, tanks controlled by disembodied brains, a miniature metropolis filled with talking lungfish (which you destroy like Godzilla), a guy obsessed with conspiracy theories about a milkman, trenchcoat-clad G-men talking obsessively about pies, psychic lucha libre, a guy playing a board game against a figment of his imagination (who happens to be his ancestor, Napoleon Bonaparte), a secret service composed of Girl Scouts, rats with swollen heads that self-destruct and release disorienting gas, mutant killer rabbits that emerge from meat grinders, an insane dentist who makes people sneeze out their brains...

You're probably better off burying it, unless you like writing that embodies lazy anime tropes.

Ditzy cute klutzy airhead. Check.
Cranky chick who's too proud to be openly nice to anyone. Check.
Excruciatingly shy character who spends the entire game apologizing for her existence. Check.
The frilly lady with the gigantic boobs and squeaky voice (she must be filled with helium, it's the only explanation). Check.

Game of Thrones's title sequence has been in my head on and off since the new season started. One of the best ever.

Though True Blood's is more visceral, and also gets stuck in my head.

Also, damn you, Ruan, I'll have Radioactive stuck in my head all day now.

Well. You could have this stuck in your head instead.

I've always loved TV title songs. It makes watching TV with my Dad on my parents' DVR frustrating because he hates them and wants to skip them always.
