Cracked.com had a silly post today about scientific answers to silly questions, including what is the catchiest song. The answer, "We are the Champions" by Queen.

I don't quite agree - it'll stick in your head but I heard Billy Squier's "In the Dark" (not a good song) but that sucker stuck in my head for a week. :banghead:

This has my vote. Every time it comes up on my playlist I just want to dance down the street, or around the room, or down the aisles of the store ... wherever I am. And I don't dance. At least not what anyone else would call dancing.


It really grooves. ;)

My vote goes to the song Epizootics off the latest album of the Legendary Scott Walker.

You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleedin' enough for two
It's a midlife crisis

That's a happy kind of music.

I've been known to get hung up on a particular song for days, to the annoyance of anyone around me. After seeing a particular Tarantino movie, I antagonized my son with these renditions (among many fun covers) of Chick Habit:

(needs to be at some volume)
