    Post your earworms here.

     

    I will start with the General Cinema theme song.

     

    Actually, that's a collection of the various GC songs before they went broke.  The first couple are the earwigs... I guarantee you that 12 year old boys and girls ANNOYED THE SHIT OUT OF THEIR PARENTS every Saturday evening after coming home from the movies.

     

    Until 1982, when they redid their theme, completely missing the damn point.

     

    Anyway, 37 years after hearing that jingle for the first time, I still find myself humming it or drumming it some days.  Annoying the shit out of my parents.

     

    Post yours!

     

      More recently, it's "I like to move it, move it!" from Madagascar, I think? The kids in my daycare were constantly singing that one line over and over. I finally had to outlaw it.

        I still think it is weird when an 8 year old will bust into I... LIKE... BIG BUTTS AND I CANNOT LIE!!!

         

        (I was told I have Spongebob to thank for this, I think?)

         

          Well, kids like saying 'butt'.

                    The miscreants song from a Mr. Magoos' Christmas Carol is always a hit this time of year...

                      Wow. That 1977 version is stuck in my head to this day. Good call. Of COURSE it's on YouTube....

                        Six minutes worth of different THX sound intros.

                         

                        You won't get those six minutes back, but it is kind of fun.  I'd never heard about half of them.
