Earworms

earworm

noun

  • a catchy song or tune that runs continually through someone’s mind.

I must warn you before you delve into this awesome and contagious post that you will most probably start singing Disney's "It's a Small World" and then if you're like me, it's guaranteed to get stuck in your head and have you singing it for the next day or so! I just found out that these songs, songs that get stuck in your head, are called Earworms. This is kind of weird because there are some Earworms that I actually love, and a few are even some of my favourite songs ever! And funnily enough I have to have to have to sing along to all of these when I hear them, maybe that's why they stay with me for so long!

So here's my list of songs that I just can't get rid of once I've heard them, Red means it's annoying and blue means I utterly love it!  Let the torture begin!
