What music get's stuck in your head? - Music you hear that won't go away.

All topics musical, not specifically piano-related

Here's a question everyone can answer:

What music after you hear it, "gets stuck in your head" all day?


For me right now it's: "Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad . . . I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas . . . " What's worse is my 4 yr old's preschool class is singing it for their Christmas program.
Also, pieces my students are working on. I've found myself humming a tune during the week wondering, "where did I get that from?" And then I remember it's a piece one of my students had played at lessons that week.

What other music could we list that get's stuck in a person's mind after listening to it?

Thanks - now I am singing Feliiz Navidad all day!
I do not know Darth's theme!
I can get just about any music stuck - once I start humming it - that's it for the day. Usually it is some popular music that Mom and I used to sing.
Sometimes I wonder why I thought of a certain song and think it must be the words that reminded me of my Mom or my husband.

Guess what was playing on the radio just now on the way home from an errand? "Feliz Navidad". Just when you get that song out of your mind . . . It is pretty catchy. I guess that's what makes some songs so popular.

No, a student is not learning it, it is just your mention of it!

I have a lot of male students - Darth vadar's theme, star wars theme...but Darth Vadar I didn't mind before until I ended having 4 students on the same day playing it.

Sorry, Stretto, I r replied too quickly and didn't see you were asking about Darth!
Beckywy, Do you mean it is the same as what I call Star Wars Theme?
DDD G D etc.
I have a lot of boys this year and it is a favorite. I only have to hear it once a week, but the parents hear it every day (if it is practiced every day).

On any given day, it could be just about anything. However, one of the most common is the main theme from the Beethoven Choral Fantasia, (Opus 80). This one has been used as theme music for Dean Witter commercials and is absolutely impossible to get out one's mind, once it starts. It's simple and singable - unfortunately! :D

Been there, done that! This thread bears some relationship to our What is "good" music? thread. It would be interesting to think about the relationship between good music and memorable music. Are they the same?
