Songs That Get Stuck in Your Head Wanted

I need a list of songs to burn onto a cd for a friend. The goal of this cd is to annoy and get stuck in his head. Anyone got any suggestions? I also prefer to make this an eclectic group of music as well.

This music will be on his Xbox and will be played as he plays, thus burrowing its way into his brain. Feel free to email me the songs, for I don’t have any fun utility to look them up.

Otherwise, suggestions are helpful.


The Turtles…“So Happy Together” ought to do it.

The Look of Love
The Girl from Impanema
Mother Nature’s Son
Tom’s Diner

Keep on. So far, these work nicely.

Yes, I can see my insidious plot hatching from three states away.


If you could only get the song from Magical Trevor

actually there’s also

a second one, too.

They have infinite loops, which contributes to the want-to-bang-your-head-against-a-wall feeling.

Electric Avenue

The Hamster Dance, Can’t Get You Out of My Head by Kylie Minogue, and It’s a Small World After All. The evillest of evil trifectas. My work is complete.

Good going, so far. I need more cheesiness out of your songs, though.

I’m currently downloading “Heat of the Moment” by Asia, and that song from Scarface "Push it to the Limit.

Let’s not forget the context these songs will be played in.

I like the Magical Trevor songs. My name is Trevor. Yes, I’m magical. You may now touch me.

Mambo #5, anyone? How about Macarena?

P.S. I just cursed myself to about 6 hours of ‘A little bit of Mary…blah blah blah’. I will now stick my head in ice water.

Oh dear God! That’s just plain cruel.

How about:
The Safety Dance (Men w/o Hats)
Take On Me (a-ha)
Cruel Summer (Bananarama)
The Greatest American Hero Theme Song (“Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air…” I forget who sings it.)

What’s that 80’s song that goes, I’m the one who wants to be with you / Deep inside I hope, etc?

Aw … where’s my favorite earworm?

“It’s a Small World After All”
BTW, it’s Joey Scarbury for “Greatest American Hero” theme. I love that song :slight_smile:

Mr. Big - To Be With You
Now that I answered that, I will be singing it all day.

Sugar, Sugar–The Archies
Yummy, Yummy, Yummy–The 1910 Fruitgum Company
Green Tambourine–The Lemon Pipers

Garuanteed to drive 'im nutso.

Now lissen while I playplayplayplay…

Styx’s “Come Sail Away” gets stuck in my head all the time, as does the “Can-Can.”

That Spice Girl’s song “If you want to be my lover…” or whatever it’s called.

It’s already been pegged correctly by melondeca. I just want to add that your memory of the song is downright dirty. “Deep inside I hope”? Wow.

I’m the one who wants to be with you,
Deep inside, I hope you feel it too.

Quite a bit of Ricky Martin would work (La Vida Loca, Shake Your Bon Bon, She Bangs) but none are as earwormy as Cup Of Life*.

If you can find a purchasable version of internet meme classic Dragostea din Tei (by a real Romanian boyband, O-zone, you are truly an evil bastard.

*Oh Ley Oh Ley Oh LEY!


“This is the song that doesn’t end…” (Good luck if you can find it, but wouldn’t it be beautiful if you could rig this up to repeat unto eternity? ;))

What was that song a little while ago, Dragostea din tea or something like that. Maya ee, maya oo…

I was trying to avoid thinking about it too much, lest it get stuck in my head. That’s even worse than Mambo #5.
