    Here's the story of a lovely lady
    who was bringing up three very lovely girls
    all of them had hair of gold, like their mother.
    the youngest one in curls.

    Here's the story of a man named Brady
    Who was living with three boys of his own.
    They were four men living all together
    yet they were all alone

    Till the one day when the lady met this fellow.
    And they knew that it was much more than a hunch,
    That this group must somehow form a family,
    That's the way we all became the Brady bunch.

    The Brady bunch, the Brady bunch.
    That's the way we became the Brady bunch.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    You are welcome.

    I found this gem:

    I know a song that gets on everyone's nerves,
    everyone's nerves,
    everyone's nerves.

    Oh, I know a song that gets on everyone's nerves,
    and this is how it goes:

    tunes

    Probably the WORST earworm situation would be for that poor bastard driving around an icecream truck listening to Turkey in the Straw or The Entertainer. That has to do brain damage.

    There's also the classic "Mahna Mahna" song from The Muppet Show (now being used to peddle some kind of new Dr. Pepper flavor):

    Mahna Mahna
    Do doo be-do-do
    Mahna Mahna
    Do do-do do
    Mahna Mahna
    Do doo be-do-do be-do-do be-do-do be-do-do-doodle do do do-doo do!

    Not an annoying song, but...

    Last summer, we went camping and the folks at the next sight were apparently missing home. They seriously had SWEET HOME ALABAMA on constant repeat the entire evening!

    Sweet home alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet home alabama
    Lord, i'm coming home to you

    ...one more time for the people in the back...

    Sweet home alabama
    Where the skies are so blue
    Sweet home alabama
    Lord, i'm coming home to you
    How do I know you are who you think you are?

    That was actually a popular single from some time in the 1960s.

    Yes, the original version (from the soundtrack of a 1968 Sweedich softore porn documentary) was a hit briefly. But no doubt the Muppets cover of the tune later in the 1970s made it much much more mainstream

    Off-topic:
    Down the pub last night there was a band practising in the basement for their show tonight. I'll think I'll give it a miss as their track listing seemed to consist of 'Sweet Home Alabama', and 'Don't fear the Reaper' played constantly on repeat.

    Sorry this one has been bothering me all night and into the morning... just thought I'd share....

    Wake me up!
    Before you go-go
    Don't leave me hanging here like a yo-yo...

    Nothing like a little Wham to pi$$ people off!
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone
    -Peart
