On the lighter side...

...there's been a lot of heavy stuff out there on the Senate race, health care, and education lately, so I need to ease off the gas.

So today's topic -- what do you see as the catchiest songs in the world? These are songs that burrow into your mind right before you turn off the car or mp3 player, and spool over and over again through your head. Some are pleasures, whereas others just will not go away. It's not just you and me, by the way...there's actual science behind this phenomenon and you can even get some university intervention.

I bring this up because I discovered a recent ditty Robbie Williams last week, a piece of fluff really, that won't go away. I have played it into the ground, and still it plays in my mind. It's called "Do You Mind?" and it's superficial and catchy as heck -- press the play button below if you dare...

There are others that just won't go away, love 'em or hate 'em. Here are some of the earworms to which I'm most vulnerable:

  • "You Belong with Me" by Taylor Swift (embarrassing, that one)
  • "Shoop" by Salt-n-Pepa
  • "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"
  • "Theme to 'Indiana Jones'"
  • "Sensualit√©" by Axelle Red
  • "Get Off My Cloud" by The Rolling Stones
  • "Hey Jude" by The Beatles
  • "All That Jazz"
  • "Raspberry Beret" by Prince
  • "Narhwals" by the Weebl

What about you?

I hate Taylor Swifts music (not in a Kanye way just a I dont like this way) and find her shit really annoying. My gf plays it all the time and its gotten stuck in my head even when I have no music near me at all. And its not even a good song.
