    You know those songs you can’t get out of your head no matter how bad it is, why is it? The chords? The riff, the repitition?

    @alexx What is really annoying is when the words or the tune makes no sense…that is definitely a bad commercial.

    @quintusvw: I completely agree. I never get songs stuck in my head that I enjoy; it’s always something cheesy and annoying!
