What song gets stuck in your head every time you hear it? A new survey finds that many people think the song "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" by Kylie Minogue is the catchiest song of all time. To find this, researchers polled 700 people, and found that the song "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke came in as second catchiest while "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk came in third. In places four and five were "SOS" by Abba and "Nothing Compares 2 U" by Sinead O'Connor. THAT was interesting.
What drew researchers to the subject in the first place?
Scientists hope the findings will help future Alzheimer's research and say, "Understanding catchy music is about much more than just a recipe for next week's number one hit: It's the key to understanding why musical memories last a lifetime."
So...what songs do you find the toughest to get out of your head once you hear it??
