Have you ever had a song stuck in your head, you know the song that just keeps repeating in your mind over and over. That happened to me yesterday and when I realized what song was there I wondered WHY?
Before I tell you what song it was I found and article from WebMD that gives the Top 10 “Earworm Songs”
Feb. 27, 2003 — They bore into your head. They won’t let go. There’s no known cure. Earworms can attack almost anyone at almost any time.
No, it’s not an invasion of jungle insects. It’s worse. Earworms are those songs, jingles, and tunes that get stuck inside your head. You’re almost certain to know the feeling, according to marketing professor James J. Kellaris, PhD, of the University of Cincinnati.
Nearly 98% of people have had songs stuck in their head, Kellaris reported at the recent meeting of the Society for Consumer Psychology. The 559 students — at an average age of 23 — had lots of trouble with the Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs” Jingle and with the Baha Men song “Who Let the Dogs Out.” But Kellaris found that most often, each person tends to be haunted by their own demon tunes.
“Songs with lyrics are reported as most frequently stuck (74%), followed by commercial jingles (15%) and instrumental tunes without words (11%),” Kellaris writes in his study abstract. “On average, the episodes last over a few hours and occur ‘frequently’ or ‘very frequently’ among 61.5% of the sample.”
Here’s the students’ top-10 earworm list:
- Other. Everyone has his or her own worst earworm.
- Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs” jingle.
- “Who Let the Dogs Out”
- “We Will Rock You”
- Kit-Kat candy-bar jingle (“Gimme a Break …”)
- “Mission Impossible” theme
- “Whoomp, There It Is”
- “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
- “It’s a Small World After All”
