    You know, it's those infectious tunes that you involuntarily continue to hear, hum or sing over and over, sometimes long after the actual music itself has ended. I think most of us are susceptible to this.

    This came to mind cuz last night I was driving home listening to Santana's Shaman album and this collaboration with Michelle Branch queued up. Ever since then it's still been endless looping through my consciousness. (For some reason another one that takes up unshakeable residual residency in my head long after I hear it is Dexy's Midnight Runners "Come On Eileen")

    Any of those irresistible melodies presently replaying or tending to claim squatters' rights your head?

    Not really a fan of this band, but this tune has infected my brain like a prion gone wild:

    My name is Jon Jonsen
    I live in Wisconsin
    I work in a lumber mill there
    The people I meet
    When I walk down the street
    They ask:
    What is your name?
    My name is Jon Jonsen
    I live in Wisconsin
    I work in a lumber mill there

    Did you just call Neil Finn shit? He's one of the best pop songwriters of this era. His Crowded House / solo career is amazing.

    I watched the The Rutles, All you need is lunch..I have the whole soundtrack stuck in my head...
    Before that it was the comic strip presents Bad News...a mockumentary about a heavy metal band.

    Don'tcha hear black leather
    Dontcha see screaming thunder....

    To a catchy heavy metal beat.

    My choice is Nirvana. But not smells like teen spirit. Which is great. But lounge act.
