My friend hums the Quantum Leap theme every time he gets a song stuck in his head. He swears it gets rid of the song.

I went for a week singing Polyushko Polye after a binge of listening to various versions of that song by the Red Army choir, Origa and Ahmet Koc.

Lately I've been trying to learn Wakko's America from Animaniacs. It's really a very clever & useful song & it will come in quite handy for my weekly Team Trivia events. It's been popping into my head at random moments now & then which is good at the moment since I'm still memorizing it, but will probably irritate the F out of me in a week or two when it still keeps coming back, now in full.

Shearwater - Century Eyes. It and the rest of the album (Rooks) is fabulous if you care for the message and style, but this particular one always sticks in my head.

I've had Too Darn Hot from Kiss Me, Kate stuck in my head lately, because of how hot it is >.<

For me it has been this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiLziusKW4s

Don't ask me why, it just has. Then I tell people in my work and I hear them humming it.

Some days like today I'll just be toodling along and suddenly realize the song in my head I've been humming is the theme song from Hogan's Heroes. I don't even like Hogan's Heroes. I've barely watched Hogan's Heroes. *Sigh* Sometimes I wonder just how strange a place my mind really is.

Also, animusic has some pretty catchy tunes. Especially starship groove seems to lodge in my head:

I've heard that trying to sing the lyrics to the opening to Gilligan's Island to the tune of Amazing Grace will get any earworm out. I suspect you're just looking to replace the song with something that is unsustainable and unfamiliar, like a song that has had its lyrics swapped out for a completely different song.

I was camping and mentioned that I saw a robin outside the tent. My friend asked, "Was it a rockin' robin?" That song has been in my head all freakin' day.

California Girls by Katy Perry is constantly in my head. I hate it SO much, and yet it's so unbelievably catchy. I can't help but hum the tune/sing along whenever I hear it.

I think it's the other way around? Or maybe both? Anyways, I sang it last year at Desert Bus with Graham.

Sailorman's Hymn by Kamelot got stuck in my head last night. This soothing ballad wouldn't stop playing even in my dreams so I spent a few hours today listening to my collected mp3 library - and let me tell you, cruising through the postapocalyptic waste of Fallout 2 to the beats of Sexyback was an interesting experience. But alas, come sleeptime I'm sitting here with the damn song still stuck in my head. There's a part in the second refrain I don't remember the lyrics to so it repeats with different lyrics each time, it's getting really annoying.

They keep playing it on the radio and the chorus is quite catchy...
