This mashup is seriously the most awesome thing I've seen all week. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] tacit! (And thanks [livejournal.com profile] nationelectric, who linked tacit's essay the other day!)

EDIT: Substitute [livejournal.com profile] remix79 in the parenthetical - goes to show why you should check your sources...

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?

Most painful for me is the Beatle's "Yellow Submarine" - one, it's pretty catchy, two, it's so popular that it'll even enter my mind without prompting, and three, it drives me up the wall.

The flip side: I love it when 10,000 Maniac's "Planned Obsolescence" or Maxïmo Park's "Apply Some Pressure" gets loaded in the mental sound buffer. Actually, on the whole, songs I like earworm much more often for me, and for the joy those bring me I'll gladly take the risks.
