What song was most recently stuck in your head?

I take attendance by having the students answer a question.

What song was most recently stuck in your head?

Students are in a different cultural bubble than I am, so please forgive any typos I've introduced in accidentally transcribing their handwriting, and also... I can't even tell if some of these are actual songs, or just a series of words strung together.

  • Taylor Swift's new song
  • Promiscuous - Nelly furtado
  • Heart of Glass
  • Rabbit Heart
  • DARE
  • Cherub Rock
  • That one remix of the horrible meme song that doesn't have a name?
  • chocolate chip cookie
  • cold cold man
  • wake me up when sept ends
  • coconut song on YouTube
  • Diamonds
  • Anime un Po'
  • I am Moana
  • Pakkanen
  • Liang Zhu
  • My Way by Frank Sinatra
  • Wagon Wheel
  • the Schumann piece I'm learning
  • In a sentimanta [sic] mood
  • Something Just like this
  • Brite Lites
  • Super Rich Kids - Frank Ocean
  • Rich Love
  • Apartment
  • Dvorak New World Symphony
  • Despacito
The winner was "Dragon Tales", with two (!) votes, which I won't look up but will instead guess is a theme song to an animated TV show.


This post's theme word is epimone, "the rhetorical device of frequent repetiton of a phrase or question; dwelling on a point." LMFAO's iconic song "Shots" seems to have been mostly written by epimone, or a regular expression like:  "(shots)*".
