OT: MGoEarworms - Songs that get stuck in your head

In this thread we torture our fellow MGoBloggers.

Ever since the Mad Men finale I've had "I'd like to buy the world a Coke" on 24 hour replay.

Although, that pushed out the theme song from Thomas & Friends, so I suppose I should be thankful.

I can't stop humming the tune that starts at 39 seconds whenever I start playing Halo. 

Other songs that get stuck in my head are most Taylor Swift songs and Drunk in Love by Beyonce. No shame.

If it's good, it's not an earworm because then it would be pleasant.  So instead, I get stuck with anything by Duran Duran (and oh my god...)

Musical Doodle by The Sonars.  Watched this SpongeBob episode the other day with the kids and now I am living the life of Spongebob.  "Round and round the record spins all day... "

El Paso by Marty Robbins.  Not too many songs have the narrator describing his own death in detail.

It also happens to be UTEP's fight song.  Next time you hear it, sing the actual lyrics along with the band:


"Felina is strong and I rise where I've fallen

Though I am weary I can't stop to rest
I see the white puff of smoke from the rifle
I feel the bullet go deep in my chest"

It randomly popped into my head the other day as I was thinking about things I would wait all week for when I was a kid and it has not left my head since -

I was lifted out of the Grand Canyon by helicopter this am. The sound of a helicopter plus borderline dehydration drilled the theme from MASH into my brain since.
