Top 10 Annoying Songs That Get Stuck In Your Head
Catchy songs that tend to get stuck in one's head, or "earworms" as they're often called, usually cause polarizing reviews. People either love them or hate them. As "Let It Go" may become one of these songs, we've assembled a list of some of the most memorable "stuck in your head" songs.
10. Harlem Shake - Baauer
The Harlem Shake became an internet sensation through no fault of the artist. In this case, the sound was adopted to start a meme craze - the Harlem Shake dance.
9. What Does The Fox Say - Ylvis
Yea, this song is fucking fantastic. But it will ingrain itself into your brain and never leave.
8. My Humps - The Black Eyed Peas
The Black Eyed Peas released "My Humps" as the third single off the 2005 album "Monkey Business," and despite being negatively rated by critics for its sexually suggestive and repetitive tone, the song became the most successful single off the album.
7. Barbie Girl - Aqua
"I'm a Barbie girl / In a Barbie world / Wrapped in plastic / It's fantastic." Fantastic for some, but for the rest of us, an impossible task to get out of our heads. It became a worldwide hit for Danish group Aqua in 1997.
6. Who Let Dogs Out - Baha Men
Chances are you only know the chorus, so have fun with that. WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? WHO WHO WHO WHO WHO?
5. Call Me Maybe - Carly Rae Jepsen
Remember when this was freaking everywhere? Well, now it’s in your head.
4. Friday - Rebecca Black
When 13-year-old Rebecca Black had her parents buy her the chance to make her own music video, there's no way she could have predicted how successful that video would be.
3. Crazy Frog - Axel F
Maybe this poor rendition of the Magnum PI theme tune was one of the worst pieces of music ever released. Couple that with an irritating CGI frog, and you’ve got a recipe for the most annoying creature ever created by the industry.
2. Gangnam Style - Psy
Like "Call Me Maybe," "Gangnam Style" became stuck in heads after the video by Korean rapper Psy became a viral hit on YouTube. The bass heavy dance tune reached one billion views on YouTube, setting a record that no English speaking artist was able to achieve previously.
1. Baby - Justin Bieber
After catching the eye of Usher, the then 15-year-old Bieber released his first EP, "My World." Immediately Bieber became the new teen heartthrob with his famous bowl haircut and dreamy lyrical ballads. The track was an overnight hit, and to the chagrin of his critics, one of the most impossible catchy songs to escape.
