I’m looking for the name and artist name of a certain song.
It’s a special song that has the nightmarish power to become stuck in your head, sometimes for days, driving you crazy! It’s that song where, when the first notes come on the radio, you have been known to knock over people and furniture in your quest to change the station ASAP, or destroy the radio trying.
This song has caused you to leave bars and restaurants, furiously humming a competing song. OMG, you hate this song. What is it?

A certain project, I won’t bore you with the complicated details, requires me to come up with a song that is one of the worst offenders in this way. For me, it’s the Pina Colada song (Do you like Pina Coladas...), as well as one by the Violent Femmes and one by Semisonic, neither of which I will name because even their titles can start up an infinite lyric loop in my head. However, all three of those are a bit obscure. I’m looking for something that is more well known, more universally hated for how it gets into ones head. And it’s worth a $25 gift certificate to the bookseller of your choice that's not Amazon.
Here’s how the contest goes: name your song in the comments. Go ahead and name multiple hated and feared songs. You have until 6 pm CDT Thursday May 29. At that time, I’ll pick the top worst offenders and create a poll and people can vote. The person who first suggested the ultimate gets-stuck-in-your-head song gets the prize!
So, my bloggy friends, what is your most hated, gets-stuck-in-your-head song ever?
