Repeat after me – “Earworms are not evil”.

There, feel better now?

Earworms, for the uninitiated, are those lovely songs that once heard rattle around in your brain for hours, days, years even – kind of like Tinnitus with a tune. Some earworms are actually quite good, others stick just because they are THAT awful!

But they are fun to link to on FB for friends to hear, especially if said friend is prone to earworms. That part IS evil (but such fun!).

Here are my go to earworms, in no particular order:

  • Barnes & Barnes ‘Fish Heads’
  • Rebecca Black ‘Friday’
  • Chumbawamba ‘Tub Thumping’
  • Wallflowers ‘One Headlight’
  • Rick Astley ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’
  • Rupert Holmes ‘The Pina Colada Song’
  • Bobby McFerrin ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’
  • Queen ‘We Are The Champions’
  • Europe ‘The Final Countdown’
  • Ultravox ‘Dancing With Tears In My Eyes’

Honourable Mentions: The Sugarhill Gang ‘Apache’, Las Ketchup ‘The Ketchup Song’, BB Gabor ‘Nyet Nyet Soviet!’, Jimmy Buffett ‘Margueritaville’
