From another thread:
It also works with ‘phenomenon’.
So you’re driving along, watching TV, reading a book, or otherwise minding your own business, when you see or hear a word and it winds up being set to music in your head. What are those words, and what are the songs?
Here are a few more that get me ever time:
Nooksack (a tribe and a river up here): Love Shack, by THe B-52s
Semiahmoo (A Salish word, and the name of a spit and resort): Dirty Old Town, by The Pogues
Bakerview Road: Holiday Road, from National Lampoon’s Vacation
