Get the Heck Out of My Head!! (A list)

"You’re in the Big Leagues… when you make a perfect slide!
"You’re in the Big Leagues… when you keep the team alive!
"You’re in the Big Leagues… when you block a shot or two!

You’re in the Big Leagues… when you’re into Big League Chew!"

[sub]Anyone else have any?[/sub]

Well now I’ve got that, thankyouverymuch.

I was an itsy bitsy
teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini
that she wore for the first time today
Do you love me now ? ::running away::

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands…
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands…
If you’re happy and you know it,
then your face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

[sub]I admit to being caught singing this out loud while digging through a file cabinet at work.[/sub]

I wanna li li li lick you from your head to your toes and I wanna
move from the bed down to the, down to the, to the floor and I wanna,
ah ah, you make it so good I don’t wanna leave, but I gotta
kn kn kn know wh what’s your fan-ta-ta-sy!

It’s been like this for more than a week. Help me.

My head is big enough to have two of these things rattling around…

"Stolen bases,
Pennant races,
Stand right up and CHEER!

Now we’re talkin’ baseball,
Now we’re talkin’ beer,
Now we’re talkin’ good times…

And STROH’S is spoken here!"



*kumbaya, my lord, kumbaya…

Jump off a bridge.

that doesn’t sound good.
you ok?

What I’ve currently got:
the butter melts out of habit, you know the toast isn’t even warm, and the waitress and the man in the plaid shirt play out a scene they’ve played so many times before…

But what I have found to be the absolute stickiest song in the world would have to be Closer to Fine (Indigo Girls):
I’m trying to tell you something 'bout my life…

Make new friends and keep the old
One is silver and the other is gold.

My daughter was in the Girl Scouts and absolutely hated this song, so of course I torment her by singing it every chance I get. My punishment is to hear it in my head every night before I go to sleep.
Shouldn’t tormenting your children be it’s own virtue?

I’ve never been a particularly religious person, but recently I’m actually getting involved. And what do I get out of this? Annoying church songs stuck in my head.

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With Wisdome, Power, and Love
Our God is an awesome God


There is a road meant for you to travel
There is a road meant for you alone
And as you say “Yes” Letting me guide you
I will be strength for the journey
I will be…

Grrrr! Get it out!


commercials are the worst. there was one in the 80s that ive still got:

'sunny days, catch some rays, catch some raisinets…"

my friend jim will punch me hard if me catches me singing that, and i wont complain, cuz i will deserve it.

Wow, surprisingly I have only heard of a couple of the songs brought up so far. I guess I should be thankful in a few of cases, as I don’t have to worry about getting them stuck in my head.

I wrote a music exam on Monday, of which a large portion was listening. So I have had some Bach (Organ Fugue in G Minor, Little Fugue) and some Beethoven (Symphony No. 5 and The Moonlight Sonata) stuck in my head. But I don’t mind that at all.

I’ve also had Roseabelle in my head. Penn & Teller use the song in their shows and I just really like it. Penn tells the story of how Houdini used to sing the song to his wife. I’m not sure if that’s true but it’s a really sweet, haunting song. It is the song that is perpetually stuck in my head.

You comb your hair, put on your shades you look real cool.
You’re giving me the run-around, make me feel like a fool.
Got a lot of nerve to call me cheap, even though it’s true.
I don’t care where we go tonight, just take me along with yooooooooooooou…

Whoooooooooa…Can we rewind to where we’ve been?
Oooooooh I wish you’d take a look and see the shape I’m in!

Where the down boys go
Where the down boys goooooooooo…
Some people will go to hell when they die. I will go to an all-Warrant, all the time radio station.

Six days of this, people. Six days of Where The Down Boys Go in my brain.

Gang, if you love me, even a little bit, kill me. Please. I beg of you.

wow - I’ve had that one stuck in my head the last two days, along with Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture. Weird…

My offensive recurring earworm is “Young Guns” by Wham! I’ll hear it in my head when I’m brushing my teeth. I hate it.

Young Guns,
Having some fun
Crazy ladies keep 'em on the run.
Wise guys realize there’s danger in emotional ties.
See me, single and free
No tears, no fears, what I want to be.
One, two, take a look at you
Death by matrimony!


Hit me Baby One More Time will usually shift it, but only temporarily.

Why don’t the good songs get to be earworms?

I just recently heard this version of the lyrics you posted

If you’re psycho and you know it
eat your feet
If you’re psycho and you know it
eat your feet
If you’re psycho and you know it
And you really wanna show it
If you’re psycho and you know it
eat your feet

Jehovah is punishing me for changing religions by making me hear hymns in my head, especially the really dramatic or bouncy ones.

Holy holy holy, Lord God Almighty
Early in the mooor-niiing our song shall rise to theeeee.
Holy holy holy, meeeeer-ciful and miiiii-ghty,
Goood in three peeerrrr-soooonns, blessed Trinity.

And then there’s:

I am the light of the world (bum bum bum bum bum bum bum bum)
You people come and follow me (bum bum bum bum bum)
If you follow and love, you’ll learn the mys-te-ry
Of what you were meant to do and beeeee.

And worst of all, one from Christian camp:

I am the res-urrection (clap)
I am the light (clap clap clap clap)
He who believes in me wil ne-ever die (clap clap clap clap)
and on and on…


Anyway, there’s also the theme songs from anime that are proving very tenacious lately, especially Cruel Angel’s Thesis and the like.

da duh da
duh da duh da

da duh da
duh da duh da

da dee dee
duh da dee dee…

(Yes, that’s Anton Karas playing the theme of The Third Man. Just try to stop him.)

dee dee da dee da do
dee dee da dee da do

da duh da
duh da duh dee…
