Writer's Block: The Wrath of Ohrwurm

German has a word for everything, like ohrwurm. Translated literally as "earworm" in English, it's the word for songs that get stuck in your head and won't go away. What earworm of a song do you most dread burrowing into your head?


After I'd seen The Producers, Springtime for Hitler (which I actually found rather awkward in the context of the show and was the one part I didn't really like) got stupidly stuck in my head so much that I actually caught myself humming it once or twice. 'Dread' is the appropriate expression here. You don't want to go walking around Vienna humming 'Frühling für Hitler'. *buries face in hands*

Or when it's only a couple of lines that suddenly surface out of nowhere and you can't remember the song or artist, and it bugs you the whole day. Although this was a lot more annoying in pre-Google and internet times...
