    You're going through you're day, minding your own business when BAM!
    You realize that you've been repeating a song in your head for the last 15 minutes.
    Sometimes it's because they're good.
    Sometimes it's because they're terrible.
    Sometimes it just...because.

    List them here. If it's an awful song, it's even funnier. Besides, let's face it...the good ones never get stuck in there.

    Here's a short list of ones that recently, for one reason or another, reached my ears and got stuck in my stupid head.

    Rednex - Cotton Eyed Joe
    Die Antwoord - Fatty Boom Boom (actually love this one, but you don't want it stuck in there for long)
    Ricky Martin (Yeah, Ricky FRICKIN Martin) - Livin La Vida Loca

    The worst part of having a song stuck in your head is when you only know one sentence of it xD It's like a malfunctioning loop.

    El Chaval de la Peca - Abanibi (originally from Israel's Eurovision entry)
    Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)
    Almost every 90's kids show intro song

    Had to mute it so it doesn't stick in my head--I blame my old girlfriend for showing me this.

    Also: I need a butterflycopter

    @megumi014 Exactly! Not knowing the words is the worst, you're absolutely right.
    Don't even get me started on 90's shows, I actually listen to the intro song from The Adventures of Pete and Pete occasionally lol

    It gets worse when you have a kid ...

    All those terrible songs get replaced by even worse kid-friendly pop songs And they get stuck in there twice as long lol

    I have three younger sisters, and to this day, for no reason at all, Barney songs will pop into my head.
    If I never see a white VHS with purple lettering again, it'll be too soon.

    I remember summer of 1997 when I was working at a Pizza Hut and our music was whatever was on the jukebox. I hated the songs Wannabe by Spice Girls and MMMbop by Hanson as those were the only two that would ever play it seemed (and it played them like every 20 minutes or so), and they would get stuck in my head.

    I'll tell you what I want what I really really want
    So tell me what you want what you really really want...

    They aren't bad songs, but just picture the two of them on repeat all day for a 8 - 12 hour shift for an entire summer.

    On another note, here is the song that was stuck in my head last couple days since I heard it on my way into work on the radio. It's a lesser known late 80's/early 90's song, I think it is listed as released October 1989. No idea why it got stuck in my head, maybe I just really want summer after getting almost 40 inches of snow in 40 days.

    Matlock theme music. It has been coming and going regularly for the past year or so, for at least a few days each week.

    It's starting to get scary.

    I've traveled around Philippines in November and December, just before Christmas. And every shopping mall had this song on repeat. And people were singing that song in karaoke inside the department store. I'm still humming it today...
