Well . . . it really changes quite often for me, but I have a few most addicting songs.

Right now, from the soundtrack to Paprika, Lounge, but in its heyday (read: before I got sick of it) probably Capital H by Motion City Soundtrack.

Do you mean addicting, as "I love listening to it", or addicting as "I CAN'T GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!!!!! AUGH!!!!" ?

I know a song that will get in your head deeper and more persistently than any other. If ever I need a song out of my head, I just find this and put it on, and the rest goes away. I warn you, just reading the title and thinking about it for a few minutes might paralyze your brains for the rest of the day.

The theme song from the Smurfs.


Don't say I didn't warn you.

sorry if i'm naive, but i assumed latter meant alternative. and since i already said second options, the only choice left was first. I'll go ahead and edit that XP.

There's always a song or two that won't leave me alone until I buy it (I would be very rich if I knew how these writers did it). For a time it was 'Dani California' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers; most recently it has been 'Paralyzer' by Finger Eleven. The lyrics suck but it's so frikking catchy. I can't help myself!

Other songs that are stuck in my head right now (I can't remember all of them so I'll just list a few):
'I'd Like That' by XTC
'Little Wing' by Jimi Hendrix
'Aerials' by System of a Down (best song to blast really loud while driving evAr)

a lot of sharpnel songs are extremely addicting, but in the rock music genre... i'd have to say...

possibly El Scorcho by weezer at times, and SOS (message in bottle) by the police.

So . . . does that mean that this thread is about the songs that addict most often?

I actually don't like all that much of their stuff. =X I like B.Y.O.B, Chop Suey!, and Aerials. I listen to whole CDs by them on occasion but usually when I hear them it's one or two songs that have found their way onto my playlist.

If you pay attention to their lyrics, you feel like it's making you stupid. Except for, you know, BYOB. Basically. "Why do we always have to send the poor." And Violent Pornography is at least satirical.

I think that's pretty much it. It's less stylistically as much as lyrically. The stuff with meaningless lyrics just doesn't do anything for me, catchy or not.

Of course, I mentioned before that I like 'Paralyzer', so I dunno.

This was stuck in my head for days: Tribute to Kent Hovind. [NSFW]

I suggest watching some videos of Kent Hovind preaching creationism before watching this awesome song.

I get their Porcelain stuck in my head a lot, also Mirror for the sun...god that one hurts! It's so good... :-) They're a really good band.

DIE.

Altho since I never watched the show enough, so it can't really be stuck in my head too much.

One song I find addictive, or group of songs rather, is the entire Dark Side of the Moon album by Pink Floyd.

Now...as far as a few songs that can drill themselves into your noodle far enough they can't get out? I just about gave them away in that last sentence.

My favorite song by them is Hey You. although it's not nearly as catchy.

(i love the trumpet, and trombone in this song)


also if anyone can point me towards more music that sounds like this song at 3:00-3:25, i'll love you.

Start the Commotion - The Wise Guys

Beverly Hills - Wheezer (I really dislike this song)

I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You), Vultures - John Mayer. If I had a proper electric guitar I'd spend entire days trying to figure out the effects he's using on the first song. So damn catchy.

I will never tire of listening to Stream of Consciousness or In The Name Of God - Dream Theater

Porcelain and Mirror for the sun are blocking it. With occasional interludes from Where's your head at and Girl from Ipanema. Moby's Porcelain had me hooked for a while in college, also.

Pink Floyd is the best band EVER, although I'd have to say Shine on You Crazy Diamond over the DSotM album. It pops into my head fairly frequently if I'm just walking, not really thinking of anything (prolly 'cause I listen to it so much), and then people start looking at me funny when I sway back and forth with that part that does that. Of all songs I know, that one's probably the best I've ever heard at building a dark room around me and trapping me inside. I am totally at the mercy of that song.
