The Sum of All Human Knowledge wrote:
An earworm, sometimes known as a brainworm,[1] sticky music, stuck song syndrome,[2] or Involuntary Musical Imagery (INMI)[3] is a catchy piece of music that continually repeats through a person's mind after it is no longer playing.[4]


They say they only way to get rid of an earworm is to displace it with another.
Alternatively, they say the only way to get rid of them is to give it to someone else.
Either or!


Ladies and gentlemen and the rest of you, unleash those catchy tunes to duke it out for our entertainment and/or torture!

Oooh, that's cool. Sounds kinda Beatles-y. I don't think I caught the earworm, but we'll see when I'm trying to fall asleep tonight :p

Here's one that pops into my head every few months: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-mAMH5S6VA

That's a catchy beat to be sure. It's just lacking a little texture to give it traction. Try this:

feh, you younglings and your modern "music". i go with the old masters:
Quote:
Conductor, when you receive a fare,
Punch in the presence of the passenjare!
A blue trip slip for an eight-cent fare,
A buff trip slip for a six-cent fare,
A pink trip slip for a three-cent fare,
Punch in the presence of the passenjare!

CHORUS

Punch, brothers! punch with care!
Punch in the presence of the passenjare!

Beats lack differentiation and the hook could be better. The flows are unstoppable despite, not because of, the other elements. Overall it's not catching me.

Here's how an undisputed master does it:

That's some choice earworm! To quote Dipper Pines, "Top 40 Hits are top 40 for a reason! They're catchy!"

But how about something a little less... manestream?

The Earworm shall not be reasoned with! Nothing can sway its aggression! Appeasement is a fool's errand. Look, here it comes with another unstoppable melodic assault!
