    Default Earworms

    @Chae had this Songs That Ruin Your Day thread before, but I've started this for earworms that you don't especially mind being in your head.

    These are songs from recent years that have been in my head a lot over the last year or two.

    this songs lyrics are stuck in my head pretty bad~

    Everywhere is freaks and hairies, dykes and fairies
    Tell me where is sanity?
    Tax the rich, feed the poor, 'til there are no rich no more
    I'd love to change the world - but I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you

    Population - keeps on breeding, nation bleeding,
    Still more feeding economy
    Life is funny, skies are sunny, bees make honey
    Who needs money? Monopoly!
    I'd love to change the world - but I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you... Oh yeah

    World pollution, there's no solution, institution, electrocution
    Just black and white, rich or poor, them and us
    We'll stop the war!
    I'd love to change the world - but I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you... It's called luck


    I actually really like this song

The type of person who might go to him for therapy or talks, or who might believe the esoteric ideas he was spouting at the time. Thus it's possible that he did not categorize all humans into types, but just made subtypes for a specific type of person. This overarching type of person is the same type that is heavily interested in theories of this kind, and whom Alive says is an IEI.

    Therefore, Alive is right. We are all IEIs with subtypes. With that, I'm off this forum

    no joke https://youtu.be/Wc5IbN4xw70

    with lyrics like:
    > I want you to park that big Mack truck
    Right in this little garage
    > I let him taste it, now he diabetic
    I don't wanna spit, I wanna gulp
    I wanna gag, I wanna choke
    I want you to touch that lil' dangly thing

    how can it not echo endlessly in my empty skull.

    The Barnum or Forer effect is the tendency for people to judge that general, universally valid statements about personality are actually specific descriptions of their own personalities. A "universally valid" statement is one that is true of everyone—or, more likely, nearly everyone. It is not known why people tend to make such misjudgments, but the effect has been experimentally reproduced.

    The psychologist Paul Meehl named this fallacy "the P.T. Barnum effect" because Barnum built his circus and dime museum on the principle of having something for everyone. It is also called "the Forer effect" after its discoverer, the psychologist Bertram R. Forer, who modestly dubbed it "the fallacy of personal validation".

    A Swedish hit.

    I've been having this in my head and I haven't even heard the melody since childhood.

    The decisive thing is not the reality of the object, but the reality of the subjective factor, i.e. the primordial images, which in their totality represent a psychic mirror-world. It is a mirror, however, with the peculiar capacity of representing the present contents of consciousness not in their known and customary form but in a certain sense sub specie aeternitatis, somewhat as a million-year old consciousness might see them.

    (Jung on Si)

    This track, as well as every song that has sampled this track, is an example of an instrumental earworm, I believe. No vocals but a super catchy and easily identifiable saxophone riff (which starts at 1:15)

    Two of the most well-known Russian earworms out there, both by the legendary Europop group Ruki Vverh! (The second song here was later sampled by the Europop group ATC in their song "Around The World [La La La]")

    I can't believe that nobody thought of a Rick Astley song in neither this thread nor the one that inspired it !
    So, I have the pleasure to rectify this injustice by giving you not one but two Rick Astley songs !

    I used to have such a crush on Rick Astley as a child! I've always liked cutesy guys, and guys with deep voices
