So what are the tunes that are guaranteed to stick in your head?

Bloody adverts have a lot to answer for.

There are more but I can't think of any right now.

If I ever think of even one line of the Chicken Song by Spitting Image, that's it, it runs on and on. Which means I now have it in my head. :el:

Like Cartman when he hears Come Sail Away?

TV Themes get stuck in my head a lot. One that keeps coming back is the Enterprise theme. I think I have a jukebox in my head stuck on random

"Maybe tomorrow, I'l want to settle down..."

The Terminator theme and the Lonely Man theme from The Incrdibe Hulk are a couple others that I find myself humming. As well as songs from The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina of Time.

Prince Valiant and Mysterious Cities of Gold as well.

Like I said, it's like a jukebox in here.

I wouldn't have said Littlest Hobo until you did and then it went off in my head. :lol:
Lot of shows from my childhood work that way - A Team, Knightrider, Trapdoor, etc.

Back to actual music, for some reason Crystal by New Order seems to run round and round in my head with ease if I think of even the sounds alone. Very catchy tune.

There always Manic Miner's music. :)

Cool, a reminder of just how crap it was to load a Spectrum game.

Ah now this is stuck in my head. Thanks

And speaking of spectrum I remember the great fun of:
Press Play
Searching for Level 1...
Found Level 3
Stop
Rewind
Found Level 2
Stop
Rewind

And some games had bugs where you could just skip levels by loading the level you wanted to go to.

Back on topic, the 2 main Jurassic Park tunes get stuck in my head a lot as well.

I remember this song getting stuck in my head a lot a few years back due to this ad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap1-OPM9Qao

And then as a fan of Supernatural, I keep getting "Carry On My Wayward Song" in my head as well.

Yes, a lot does go on in there. Explains why I barely have the capacity to think. :scratch:
