Number one on my list, ironically, is "Can't Get You Out of My Head" by Kylie Minogue. Appropriately, I have an mp3 of Jerry Cantrell's "Anger Rising" to get it out of my head.

I think "I Wanna Be Like You" from The Jungle Book would top my list, or maybe "Mmm Bop". I applauded when Hanson were crushed by a giant Bender in Futurama.

Or Uncle Kracker's "Follow Me", which did for a month solid every time I turned on a TV when it was released. Try what I might, there was no escape from the fucker.

What about TAINTED LOVE by Soft Cell. That song still induces homicidal thoughts.

"Turning Japanese" by whoever that damn group was.

And of course, Kylie's "Can't Get You Out of My Head." So true, and now it's stuck again! ARGH.

That was the Vapors. And you know what it meant, right??? I still owe you Sarah, for Charles in Charge (on Lee's Blog).

...waders? Are you sure that wasn't a weasel?

Both part of the rodent family as is evidenced by their rodential teeth!

Great, now I'm gonna have Fernando stuck in my head all day. That is an absolutely great list though...

Sarah said...

I'll top the Muskrat love mention: the same song, as sung by that guy Bob from Sesame Street ("Bob Sings!"). I was traumatized as a child and have not recovered since.

Any Abba song is bad to have stuck in your head. Love to Love You Baby is bad. Really any disco song is bad. The worst thing that can happen though is when song make a medoly not unlike a K-Tel commercial, or if you only get the part from a commercial in you head. Getting a song that is in a different language is also very bad
