Top 10 Songs That stick in your head. Earworms - Not insane.

Some scientists and psychriatrists think that earworms (repatunes) may be songs or tunes that get stuck in the phonological loop, in a part of the brain that rehearses verbal information. This usually happens when a person sings the song or hums the tune once and then repeats it in his or her mind. What i do know is there are some strange things that happen to everybody but no one can explain them. Kind of like when you have a song in your head and then get by a radio and the song is on it and in the exact place in the song, spooky. Or when people pick up radio station broadcast in their dental work, i haven't heard talk about that in a while. Maybe the new ceramics and stuff in dental work don't pick up radio so well.

Anyway here is the TOP 10 list of the song reported to be the songs that get stuck in peoples heads for hours, days, weeks and yes, years. There are reports of people actually having songs playiing over and over in their heads for years. That has to suck. Heres the Top ten list of earworms.

1. Other. Everyone has his or her own worst earworm.

2. Chili's "Baby Back Ribs" jingle.

3. "Who Let the Dogs Out"

4. "We Will Rock You"

5. Kit-Kat candy-bar jingle ("Gimme a Break ...")

6. "Mission Impossible" theme

7. "YMCA"

8. "Whoomp, There It Is"

9. "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"

10. "It's a Small World After All"

That to me is the definition of cruel and unusual punishment.
