Music Stuck in My Head

Man I hate when I get a song stuck in my head.

I once worked with two other dudes on a construction crew and the three of us simultaneously had “Owner of A Lonely Heart” stuck in our heads for two days. And not the song as it’s sang by Yes, even. It was the just the first three lines, as sang by Jennifer Anniston’s character’s brother in the preview for the movie The Breakup. (Move yourself…).

It was pretty much the worst two days of all time. Anytime we’d think it was gone, one of us would bring it back.

I’ve also had Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” stuck in my head for weeks at a time before and it seems like the theme for Jurassic Park is in there permanently. Seriously. I find my self humming or whistling it at least once a day. I have no idea why.

Why is it never a good song that gets stuck in there? Why can’t I get this song stuck in my head, for example?

What song sticks in your head?
