Oh my, I loathe that song. It's one of the most annoying songs around! That said, I suppose it did well enough that people still play it on the radio lol. My husband is notorious for humming something he'll know will be annoying just so it gets stuck! So, I can't think of anymore that are really annoying, but I can think of funny ones that send me reeling. Like The Frog Song lol. The Song that Never Ends, sung originally by Sherri Lewis and Lamb Chops (I know, dating myself lol). Oh, the Theme Song to Austin Powers!!! And I simply roll on the floor to I Like Big Butts, and the Chimpmunks have a version that is hilarious!!! Namaste-Anora

Oh my. We have a 2 1/2 year old son and I don't let him watch Barney because I can't stand the songs. They annoy the stew out of me. Namaste-Anora

I agree Barney and The Smurfs do have annoying songs, but unfortunately Anora_Eldorath your son is eventually going to find a song, or tv show that has a song that drives you bonkers yet he LOVES! I'm just waiting for it with my daughter whom will be 3 in June!

Hi faeryoftheshire1. I also get annoyed when some music that I dont like get stucked in my head. That was a psychological effect that the last song you had listen, It goes repeatedly in your mind. The counter measure for that is to listen to songs that you like so that the music stucked in your head will not annoy you. I hope that it might help you a lot. Enjoy posting...=)

Hello faery. I also find myself getting caught by the last song syndrome most of the time. I went to the supermarket this morning and they kept on playing Womanizer. I still have it stuck in my head til now. My daughter even made fun of me for humming it. I also remember one occasion when the song Get Outta My Dreams wouldn't leave my head for days. That one was terrible. Oh well, I guess that's part of life. Have a wonderful weekend, faery. God bless.

Hi, faeryoftheshire1! I guess any song off of a commercial that is silly. Or it could be a song that I just can't stand that plays on the radio.

ROTFLMAO...oh my sides are starting to hurt..hehehe...it is amazing how something triggers you to repeat certain songs in your head.All it takes is for one person to start the ball rolling or a song popping up on the radio..and then you find yourself humming and singing away along with them it's annoying yet funny too.You can't win some songs are insanely bad that they are good, yet the are catchy and hook you in a bad or good way.Most times in a bad way!

Not too many, as I don't listen to much, valuing peace and quiet more than most people do nowadays. The songs that go through my head are more likely to be cute and entertaining ones rather than grating and annoying noise. But then I live in an adults only community. Yayyyy!

hehe! I listen to the radio a lot in my car and sometimes a song will be played over and over, and even though I might not like that particular song, it gets stuck in my head and I keep singing it! I can't think of a particular song offhand, but it has happened many times.

Hahahaha..Yes that happens to me too when driving and even worse on the highway when you can't change the station...and hey maybe it's a blessing you can't think of one or the cycle repeats!

I hate when songs get stuck in my head that I don't like. One that my friends like and sing is that "Barbie girl" and my song likes the youtube vid song "peanut butter and Jelly. I try to sing something else by playing some of my likes and hope that gets stuck in my head instead.

Yes, unfortunately I can sympathize with you on this one as I have had VERY annoying songs get stuck in my head too! It could be anything from a song I have heard on the radio, or on the tv. The most recent was Hannah Montana's See you again! I was sitting outside and this 8 year old girl across the street was blaring it from her mom's car stereo until she got called inside. BUT she played it over and over and over about 6 or 7 times before her mom called her inside!

Oh yes Hannah Montana!!1.Yes it seems no where is safe from escaping it.Another bad song for me was in my old apartment when my neighbor next door used to play Achey,Breaky Heart by Billy Ray cyrus!!!!!!!!!And to my dismay I eventually started humming it myself at first it was kinda funny but the novelty wore off and I wantd to pull my hair out,Hahahahaha!

"I'm a Barbie Boy, in a Barbie World..." LOL. I don't have the legs or other "bits" to make me a passable Barbie Girl! Yep, songs do get stuck in my head too. Most recently it was "Hey Jude" by the Beatles. They were a famous group of the 1960s! LOL.
