Songs that crawl in your head and stay

According to a University of Cincinnati survey, 98% of us have had a song stuck in our heads to an irritating degree. Those kind of song tend to be simple with a repeating melody or motif, which triggers brain to repeat it on its own. One of the worst offenders is a song called "It's a Small World".

I once got stuck on that ride in Disneyworld and had to wait an hour while they got it going again. Surprisingly, the song didn't quit...I had nightmares for weeks. Great stats, keep it up.
