I've got Kevin Bloody Wilson "I wanna be a builder when I grow up" stuck in my head. I really hope I don't end up distractedly singing it.

What was the last song you got stuck in your head?

Devin Townsend Band - Vampira ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esC-cvf8ivA )

It was used in a show I was working with for two months, and is just good and catchy.

This happens with annoying frequency, and it's triggered by Heart and Radio 1 at work repeatedly battering my senses with catchy, trashy tunes. The effects often linger for hours, sometimes even tormenting me during sleep.
Latest earworms I've suffered:

Kiss You - One Direction:
Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
Maroon 5 - Payphone

Bastards :(

In reply to mkean: that stupid thing about 1 fish or something. But recently its been Ian Brown - Time is my Everything, which I don't mind because its actually a good song for a change.

At the moment it's 'Young Lust' by Pink Floyd. Not too bad at all.

I find listening to it repeatedly helps.

Promise for Thomas by Monica Queen even though I have not heard it for a month or so and it's 11 years old

I have given in and am now listening to lots of Kevin Wilson on youtube this has lead to the invention of an exciting game "Trying to write very dry technical reports while listening to an extremely sweary Aussie" so far I have accidentally written "marriage" instead of "manufacturing" once and typed "f**k" on at least one occasion. If I get fired I'm going to sue him ;-)

In reply to mkean: On a trip to N Wales many years ago, a friend kept singing the title line (& just that line) from 'video killed the radio star' repeatedly, for a week.

Even 25 years later I can't hear the song without thinking of him & that week, or see a photo of him without having that line appear in my head.

Guess it could of been worse...

Your post reminds me of a chap i worked with years ago (I was a student earning beer money on a production line in a paper factory)and he, all day every day used to sing (from 'Livin' Doll'):

"Got myself a..."

And then stop.

He'd repeat this every 15-20 mins all day, everyday.

I went to school with a chap who despite being generally quite intelligent had a complete mental block on remembering words to songs, which wouldn't have been a problem if he didn't sing to himself almost constantly. You'd get one line from a song then 2 minutes of humming foolowed by the same one line and the humming would start again. He also used to occasionally puctuate sentences with random noises that made him sound like Clunk from Catch the Pigeon.
