Single lines from songs that get stuck in your head indefinitely.

This hardly counts, but:

“Bu-bwak bwak bwak, bu-bwak, bwak bwak
Bu-bwak-bwak bwaka-bwaka bwak bwak bwak.”

(Curse you, Robot Chicken!)

I’ve also had issues with They Might Be Giants lately.
“A women came up to me and said I’d like to poison your mind.”
“A women came up to me and said I’d like to poison your mind.”
“A women came up to me and said I’d like to poison your mind.”

For its sheer pop music masochism, Rhino’s Have A Nice Day set offers quite a few brain leaches. Lines that could have only come from the 70s:

Daddy please don’t, we’re gonna get mah-re[Sub]eed[/Sub]” (Cue angels) ¤ David Geddes - Run Joey Run

I said hi, she said ‘yeah I guess I am’, Aaaa[sup]ah-ah-ah[/sup]Ree[sub]el[/sub]” ¤ Dean Friedman - Ariel

She’s coming for me I know and on Wildfire we’re both gonna go” ¤ Michael Murphy - Wildfire

And two I actually don’t mind too much:

Cuz the windshield wipers, slappin out a tempo, keeping perfect rhythm with the song on the radio-o…Gotta keep rollin” ¤ Eddie Rabbit - Drivin My Life Away

I’m alright, nobody worry about me. Why ya gotta to give me a fight, can’t ya lust let it be?” ¤ Kenny Loggins - I’m Alright

Alright, Already!

(We’ll all float on… Alright, Already we’ll all float on…)

What, none of my stuck in your brain songs have been mentioned yet?

(Slightly obscured with no attempt at convey the rhythm… )

"Once I was a boogie singer playin in a rock and roll band… " – Wild Cherry

(Though this one is actually my intentional antidote to someone else infecting my brain with a song… will even kill Mandy.)


“Fill up and you don’t have to pay… come on and give us a play…” – Rose Royce


“Come a little closer Huh… close enough to look in my eye… Sharona” – The Knack


"The kind of girl you read about… in new wave magazines… " – Rick James

(Hopes he’s safely conveyed information without putting anyone’s brain on automatic repeat.)

Am the magnificent!
I’m back with a shack of a soul boss
Moose Turner

If that isn’t the most absurd thing anyone has ever said, I don’t know what is!

Oh yeah? :slight_smile:

That’s been stuck in my head for weeks now because they show that ad all the time! It’s torture!

I’m usually super-suceptible to this kind of thing, but none of the examples in this thread have set me off.

For the past few weeks, though, I’ve had this line from the theme from Danger Mouse stuck in my head:
“He’s amazing! He’s fantastic! He’s the greatest secret agent in the world…”

and it won’t go away. I don’t know where it came from, either, since I haven’t seen Danger Mouse in about 20 years.

Ok, here it goes. "I’d do anything for you…
Yes anything…
For you mean everything to meeeeeeee…

                                                                                            :smack:  :p

(Thanks to the new Eric Prydz Mix of the Steve Windwood song…)

Call on meeeeeeeee. Call on me.
Call on meeeeeeeee. Call on me.
Call on meeeeeeeee. Call on me.
Call on meeeeeeeee. Call on me.
Call on meeeeeeeee. Call on me.

And so forth.

“And as the fear grows… the bad blood slows and turns to stooooone…”

Can’t remember the name of the song or the artist, but sometimes it makes me think I take it too easy and need to work harder at things.

I KNOW this has gotta be an insta-brain-sticker for us all:

This is the story
Of a man named Brady
Who was bringing up
Three boys on his own

That’s Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot.

I know only these lines from the song, because it usually took me that long to get the radio dial changed, but I will forever be haunted by:

Satin Sheets to lie on,
Satin Pillows (pronounced Pillas) to cry on,
Still I’m not happy, don’t you see.

I HATE just that much of the song – God forbid I should ever hear anymore than just that!

I also want to reflect that while I love it a great deal, you don’t want to be, as I once was, riding the bus some morning and half-way mumbling “President of the United States of Love” from Hair under your breath before you realize you’re doing it.

You just don’t want to do that, really.

Going backwards in time, I present the worst lines that get stuck in my head:

Shake it…shake it…shake it like a Polaroid picture…Heyyyyyy - Ya! Hey Ya!

And I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more just to be the man who walked 1000 miles to fall down at your door <dooo-doo-doo-doo>

Life is like a hurricane, here in Duck World.

You’re motoring! <bom bom BOM> What’s your price for flight?

Mommy’s alright, Daddy’s alright, they just seem a little weird.

And the all-time winner of annoyance:

I want you to want me, I need you to need me, I’d love you to love me…

It’s a small world after all… :smiley:

Whoops…just watched The Apprentice, and I realized I forgot another biggie…
Monry, money, money, money.

“where is my mind? where is my mind? wheeeere is myyyy mind?”

“Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking when I hear the silly things you say.”

It’s been a rough week at work.
