Thread: Ear Worms
       >>
We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?
It's the final countdown...
We're heading for Venus and still we stand tall
Cause maybe they've seen us and welcome us all
With so many light years to go and things to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so.
ahem.. enters gimli on air synth....
do do do doooooo
do do do do dooooo
do do do dooooo
do do do do doooooooooo
ermm.. ok.. maybe that didnt work so well..
"Im to sexy for my pants to sexy for my shirt..."
God forgive me for that.
It is the same way with the Cat Chow one. "Chow chow chow"
Or Kibbles and bits, Kibbles and bits, i am going to get me some kibbles and bits. lol
sorry I just had to add those
There is also the Dr. Pepper commercial.
"Iknow a song that`ll get on ya nerves get on ya nerves get on ya nerves.e.t.c................."
HUM........ What else? Cry me a river is another one, I can`t stop singing that. I love that song though so it doesn`t matter really.
The thing that really, really annoys me, is when I`m doing tests and I start singing a song when I`m trying to concentrate.
I must admit to opening this thread with a little trepidation as to what gross material was going to be in it.
"i know a song that gets on everybody's nerves everybody's nerves everybody's nerves, i know a song that gets on everybody's nerves and it kinda goes like this
"This is the song that never ends, it goes on and on , my friends, some people started singing it not knowing what it was and just continue singing it forever just because it is the song that never end, and it goes on and on,,,"
LOL! Though I gotta admit that I kinda like it.....when I am using it to annoy others.
And a good ear worm it is.
I'm a little tea pot.
'I`m coming up, I want the world to know, got to let it show...............e.t.c.'
We were looking like fools bc we were singing out loud quite loudly. I bet you`re thinking I`m glad I wasn`t with them.

The Clean up Song
and any of the Barney songs really were Ear Worms there. I got really sick of all of them.
At nap time, I ended up getting classical music cd's to play so the kids would rest and i could get these others out of my mind. After school, in the car I would turn my radio on any Rock station and just blast it for the 30-45 minute drive home. Poor Robbie would beg me to turn the music down just a touch. Some times I would, but other times. . . NOT. lol Mean ole Mommy.

Lol, sorry, just had to add my "ear cootie"
* Mission Impossible theme
* Love and Marriage (Sinatra, that's right)
* Flinstone's theme
* Iris (Goo Goo Dolls, if I remember rightly. I always seem to come up with the words: well I don't want the world to see me, 'cause I don't think that they'd understand, etc)
* Pink Panther theme
* I just can't get you out of my head (Kylie Minoque, if that is the one?)
* In Zaire
* Parachute (Something Happens, and this just happens to be a great song)
* Jump! for my love
* Final Countdown
* and my last one's a Dutch song, for those of you who speak Dutch: Dit is de allereerste keer! (tu dum, tu dum, tu dum, tu dumdumdum ) It keeps on lingering in my head, and it's terrible! I'll see if I can find a link to it.
Am I helping Delidia?
Does anyone have a link to the tune so we can share the wealth?
Glad to say I don't know any other ear worms. Not for the moment, but with the radio turned on I'm bound to come across one.
And that Teddy Bear one sure is a pain in the you-know-what as well.
naaaa naaaa na na na naaa naaa naaaaaa naaa naaa na na na naaaa naaaa
ok. that doesnt really work to type does it... oh well.. Just think PeeWee Herman on the bar table!
"Take the bottle, shake it up, break the bubble, break it up... Pour some sugar on me! Ooooh in the name of love..."
"Ding, Dong, the witch is dead. which old witch? the wicked witch! Ding Dong the wicked witch is dead!"
Am i helping Delidia?
I hate the way they stress "to-daaayy"
No. 1 Song That Gets Stuck In Our Heads
3. Baha Men's "Who Let the Dogs Out?"
2. Chili's restaurant jingle about Baby Back Ribs
When University of Cincinnati researchers tried to find out what song gets stuck in our heads the most, the non-answer they came up with was quite revealing: Other. As in, there were way too many titles for a single poll to tally. Almost all of us suffer through this mental torture of having a song stuck on replay in our brains, repeating itself over and over and over until we want to just scream. If this happens to you frequently, we're very sorry to inform you that those University of Cincinnati researchers have determined you have slightly neurotic tendencies. Either that or you just enjoy music and listen to it often. (Personally, we're opting for the second choice.)
Which songs get stuck? Kellaris explained to Reuters that when we get a song stuck in our heads, it's usually the first or last song we heard in a specific situation, such as the song playing on the clock radio alarm or the song on the car radio when we turned off the ignition. "Just about anything can get stuck in people's heads," Kellaris told Reuters. "We each have our personal demonic tunes that get stuck in our heads, I guess."
But stuck songs, which the Germans call "earworm," tend to have these features in common:
--They are relatively simple.
--They are repetitive.
--They contain an element that surprises the listener, such as an interrupted pattern or something that violates expectations of what comes next.
--The most common culprits are songs with lyrics.
--They stay stuck in our heads for a few hours on average.
So what do you do to erase the stuck song from your brain? Kellaris advises you not to worry about it. (If you take him up on his advice, just don't listen to Bobby McFerrin's "Don't Worry, Be Happy" or you're sure to just trade one stuck song for another.) Other tips include listening to different music or distracting yourself with another activity. You can also try singing the entire song--and not just the snippet that's stuck in your head--even if you can't quite remember all the lyrics. There's even a folklore cure: Chew on cinnamon sticks.
Kinda goofy huh? Chew on cinnamon sticks? Who came up with that?!?

Ok... That's a loooong link... I hope it works...

2. Chili's restaurant jingle about Baby Back Ribs
ARRRGGGHH!! I hate that jingle! It makes me want to throw my radio out the window!
THE WHOLE room was echoing with Shanaya(or somfing) Twain, "I'm gonna get you".!!
I didn't like that one much before, and far less sneaking up on me like that! After half an hour of torment, I snapped, bounced out of bed and turned on the TV. Ahhh, the relief...
Another song that will stick is that tune from "The Sound of Music" the "Do Re Mi Fa So La Te Do" song!!
The hills are alive...with the sound of music...
