The worst earworms of all time

The worst earworms of all time

The Oxford English Dictionary describes an 'earworm' as “a catchy tune which persistently stays in a person’s mind, especially to the point of irritation.” Are you ready for these earworms?


We all know these songs and sometimes we really hate them because we just can't get them out of our heads.

Interestingly, after a survey carried out by OnePoll, it was found that most of the top earworms were classic hits, which could be a sign that "newer songs aren't as catchy as they used to be"?
