I can't get their song "AFRICA" out of my head after hearing it on the radio today. Someone make it stop.

Just replace it by one of their other songs. 'Rosanna', 'Hold the line', 'Stop loving you' are some suggestions. :)

Damn you. Now I have it going around my head too.

There is no cure.....

And just to spread the disease:

"I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in twelve-thirty flight
Her moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation
I stopped an old man along the way
Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies
He turned to me as if to say: "Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you"

It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti
I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become"

Woo, how bad are those lyrics......:/

There's always replacing one earworm with another. For this, I recommend you turn your attention to the B52's "Love Shack".

Or this: Fishheads (The song starts about two minutes in...)

Or how about the worst offender "the candy man" by Sammy Davis Jr.

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name it felt good to be out of the rain

no, really that one 'milkshake' R&B song is the worst... don't know who sings it though

bartjan August 9 2007 5:11 PM EDT

Macarena, anyone?

I think my worst ear worm, ever, occurred when I was in junior high school and I got the chorus from an ELO song stuck in my head for months.

And I cant get it out of my head,
No, I cant get it out of my head.
Now my old world is gone for dead
cos I cant get it out of my head, no no.

Listen to lux aerterna. The song is awsome, with singing in latin. Or some other language.
