    Purple Wyrm, I think I'm on my fifth listening of this now. Love it.

    @oldhat - You won't love it so much at 4:00am when you're lying in bed with "This silence offends Slaanesh!" going round and round in your head :D

    Woke-up whistling Mahna Mahna this morning after having it stuck since I played Vorn's post yesterday AND it featuring in my stocktaking-in-a-quasi-futuristic-urban-landscape dream overnight (swear to god).

    But you know what? I don't care because I love this tune. So much so, I give you this:

    I could just link Gangnam Style, cause that thing really is an evil earworm, but at the moment thanks to the game 'Forza Horizon' it's currently this:

    I grew up in France in the 80's so...

    there's no escaping this
    or that
    C'est comme ├ža !

    I actually like those songs, but after a week of having them playing non-stop in my brain... it gets a bit tiresome.

    I'm not going to post a video because I refuse to look it up... But year round I almost always have Feliz Navidad stuck in my head.

    It's horrible.

    See, I would KILL to get Les Rita Mitsouko songs caught in my head.

    I don't know why, but when I first glanced at oldhat's Charlie Steinmann post, my brain immediately presented me with the memory of this:

    I've never particularly liked or hated it. It was just kinda there, but there in a specifically noticeable way.

    But then there's this.

    I was maybe ten years old when I first heard it. The first few times I caught it on the local Real Rock Radio station, I really adored the harmonies. But soon I started listening to the lyrics.

    I am the eye in the sky
    Looking at you
    I can read your mind
    I am the maker of rules
    Dealing with fools
    I can cheat you blind

    To a kid with trust issues, those lyrics represented something very fucking creepy.

    But enough of that! When i was a wee tyke, I adored the crystalline purity of synthesizers, and I went mad any time this song came on.

    I thought for years that he was singing about a "little genie" and I thought that was the coolest thing... even though I couldn't map the lyrics onto anything I knew about the dudes in the lamps.

    And there's this gem, whose chorus I thought contained some kind of reference to a Venusian. I didn't know what it meant, but given the overall kaleidoscopic imagery, I just assumed it fit in with the rest of... whatever the hell was going on.

    And here's something a bit more contemporary:

    Na na nanana na nana na na na na na na nanana na na na na. Na na na na na na na? Na na nanana na nana na na na na na na nanana na na na na.

    This song's been stuck in my head ever since I started playing this damn game:

    Well, I didn't know about Scooter or about this song "how much is the fish" but I sure knew that melody.
    Fun fact : it's actually a cover of a traditional drinking song from Britanny : "Son ar Chistr" - the Cider Song.
    The most popular version is by Alan Stivell in 1970 :

    @Wood: Oh yeah, just about nothing Scooter does is original. Their modus operandi is taking a catchy tune from somewhere else, making that their chorus, putting on one of a handful of backing beats, and then shouting nonsensical things inbetween. Doesn't make it any less catchy, sadly :)
