Madness inducing songs

Everyone at some time has had a song stuck in their head. It's often a maddening tune that you didn't pay more than a passing attention to initially, but that has flitted endlessly in your mind, like some kind of psychic border collie, drooling and leaping, saying "look at me, look at me", until you are forced to give it your full attention while it stops to inspect it's psychic privates. If you are at all squeamish about this kind of thing, I'd advise not reading further.

HOWEVER, if you have a clueless friend or aquaintence that thinks it's amusing to endlessly discharge their false teeth in public, or perform their armpit version of Ave Maria whilst visiting the Vatican, and CAN'T TAKE A HINT THAT NO-ONE IS INTERESTED....then dropping one of these musical depth charges may be the cure you are looking for. Sing the song, hum the tune, heck even just mention the names of some of these tunes, and you'll send the listener on a veritable Love Boat cruise of practical agony. Sure, it may seem a little harsh, but extreme situations call for extreme measures. Here are some of my suggestions:

The Rainbow Connection-Kermit the frog strums, we groan
The Candyman-can he?? I wish he wouldn't
The old Rice Krispies commercial-ok, this is pretty obscure, but there was an old commercial featuring the three elves singing a jazzy little number about how "Pop" makes the world go round-snappy the first time you hear it, until it's repeated for about the 400th time
The Wedding Song-by Joey Gregorash
Moody Manitoba Morning-"nothing ever never does"

There are plenty of others, so I thought I'd ask anyone who happens to read this to contribuet their own suggestions. remember-the only way to get rid of these things is to pass them on to someone else!!
