Some­one actu­al­ly did a study on ear­worms. Really. 

“Dis­sect­ing Ear­worms: Fur­ther Evi­dence on the ‘Song-Stuck-in-Your Head’ Phe­nom­e­non, James J. Kel­laris, PhD, pre­sen­ta­tion to Soci­ety for Con­sumer Psy­chol­o­gy, Feb. 22, 2003.

It’s sum­ma­rized at http://my.webmd.com/content/article/61/67505.htm. Be warned, though—it lists the top ten ear­worms accord­ing to the study, and read­ing the list could trig­ger an ear­worm attack.

Odd­ly enough, I don’t find any of the songs list­ed to be an issue for me. Or I didn’t—until being remind­ed of them.
