Is there a catchier tune than "Young Folks"? No.

Check it out, but be warned it will be in your head all day.

Yes. :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh GOD, thank you for posting this. I was on vacation down at the beach last week and heard this song over and over on the radio. I never caught the name of the song and it’s been stuck in my head all damn week.

That should answer your question. :stuck_out_tongue:

I hate that song. KROQ should ban it from their playlist. It gets stuck in my head when I’m trying to pay attention to class!

Jees, jesss,

Just as we had planned!

Don’t worry, it goes away quickly. That thing was on over here a bit earlier

It’s on a stupid beer ad here which poisons it royally for me.

Now this is catchy. My GF doesn’t really care for it, but still wakes up in the middle of the night with it in her head.

You know, now I want to learn Savo, a dialect I didn’t even know existed.

As for the song in the OP, um, catchy isn’t the word I was thinking of. Here’s a truly catchy song, that actually makes washing the dishes bearable.

Yes. Don’t get me wrong, I like “Young Folks” enough to have the MP3 in my collection, but there are a lot of catchier tunes. This one - She Don’t Care - for example, has been firmly stuck in my head for days.

I just played all of the ones so far, and my 14 month old looooved that one. He’s totally spinning around clapping and laughing. Might have to get him some punk music.

…I saw a gorgeous stripper dance to this.

I like this song.

Am I crazy, or is the opening verse of “Young Folks” set to the tune of the generic “Chinese” melody they used to play in bad 60s sitcoms anytime someone went to Chinatown or went to a Chinese restaurant, or encountered a Chinese secret agent?

I’ll see your Loituma and raise you one Tunak Tun.

That “scissors” dance move is fantastically dorky in all the right ways.

I always thought “Love Shack” the catchiest tune…or am I just showing my age?

Oh, and as for catchiest tunes coopted by the advertising industry, I’m going to go with “Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games” by Of Montreal.

As I am on a dial-up connection, no way am I clicking on the OP’s link. And I’ve never heard of “Young Folks” and have no idea whom it’s by. But, somehow, this thread has managed to get the Young Ones theme song stuck in my head!

Meh. I actually found “Young Folks” rather bland and non-catchy.

Although I can’t compete with The Leek song, I’ll continue with the offbeat world music suggestions.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Chaiyya Chaiyya (now that’s catchy).

Only if “catchy” = “annoying and forgettable.”

You mean as sold out by Of Montreal.
