    Hey guys,

    I couldn't find a thread about earworms, so I felt like starting one.

    Post here the songs that keep rotating in your head! And tell us if you even like the song or not - we all know that even songs we don't like can turn into earworms ;) Theory: A song turning into an earworm is very likely when you just listen to part of the song and don't listen it in full until the end. However, often it's simply catchy tunes/lyrics/parts of the song that stay in your head.

    So I'll start:

    The Killers - Shot At The Night

    I listened to many songs on my way to work, but this one always comes back to my mind... especially the part "once in a lifetime... " and then the chorus.

    Fergie's Glamorous keeps on getting stuck in my head. The verse about Taco Bell, chorus & Luda's rap are on repeat.

    These days it's Madonna - Time Stood Still

    Nelly Furtado - Parking Lot

    the ''na na na'' part in the chorus is, like, the definition of catchiness

    Somebody appreciating TSI, nice

    I got a new one this evening:

    Lorde - Tennis Court

    I like it, but it doesn't smash me yet. The way she sings is catchy however, that counts for Royals as well.
    One sound in the background reminds of a song that was released in the previous years... I feel like 2006... Need to find it out...

    Aaah got it! This one sound in the background of "Tennis Court" reminds me of "Clumsy" by Fergie - do you know what I mean?

    "Clumsy" has also been an earworm... Fergie really had catchy tunes on her album.

    Lorde reminds me of a mix between Marina & The Diamonds and Cher Lloyd.

    Katy Perry's "Walking on Air" fits the bill for me.

    Yeah, it'll probably be moved to Mad About Music.

    Going to move this to MAM since this isn't a game....and technically, this is pretty close to our "song of the day" thread, so I'm pretty close to locking this. Shall discuss with the rest of the mod team.
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    But the song of your day you probably love, whereas this must not be true for an ear worm It's more about (too) catchy songs ;)
    And why are you talking about a game? Did somebody move it to Games? I started the thread in MAM...

    Today it's Lady Gaga - Aura, such a f**king weird and awesome tune! Seems unbelievable that the woman who made songs like Just Dance a couple of years ago is making songs like Aura now. And I mean that as a big compliment, she evolved nicely.

    Thanks for moving this! An earworm lives longer than a day. It's like three days at least. So there is a difference.

    Aura could be a potential earworm for me.

    You could combine them and rename the thread to "Your song of the moment", I guess.
