Post What song is stuck in your head today?
In the discussion of Musicophilia: Tales of Music and Brain, there is a chapter about music that gets stuck in people's heads. I know this happens to everyone, and it can be either pleasant or incredibly obnoxious. I think it would be fun and maybe even therapeutic to share your "brainworms," as the author of Musicophilia explains them. Please share with us! Anything from a movie you just watched, the new Lady Gaga monstrosity, to 1-800-SAFE-AUTO commercials. Whatever's stuck in your head.

So, come on, tell us: What's stuck in your head today?

That stupid McDonald's commercial "Give me back my filet-o-fish, give me that fish" has been playing a continuous loop in my head since I woke up this morning. I am getting ready to blow my brains out!

Oh my God, I hate that commercial and the damn ditty that really does stick no matter how terrible it really is!

I had Gloria by Them stuck in my head, but now that I've listened to it, I'm ok. :)

Well, NOW it is "here I Go Again" by Whitesnake...I wonder where that could have come from? (glances at bleachededen) The problem with '80's hairband rock? it usually takes another '80's hairband rock song to get it out..... :shock:

Or maybe....a POWERBALLAD!!!! You know...."Every Rose has it's thorn.....just like every night has it's dawn....just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song........."

Oh, froglipz, I am so sorry, that one is like superglue! You may need an even more powerfully sticky song to get rid of it...I suggest Journey. Any Journey. I hate Journey, but their songs are catchy as hell.
Good luck!

Not really stuck like an ear worm, but I have been semi-intentionally playing my favorite passages from Led Zepplin III and Zoso. Less intentional but pleasant as well are a few bars from the soundtrack of Sherlock Holmes.
