"Chocolate Rain" by Tay Zonday. It's the number-one video on YouTube right now. The song doesn't get played on the radio yet, but the video has over three million views. It has piano chords that never change, and the guy has a really deep voice and looks nerdy like Urkel. He looks 12 but is probably 25. And he has a really deep voice. I can't remember the words now. There's one line about "reading your insurance rates."

I like so many songs. I grew up with music. My mom listened to country, and I liked that. My boyfriend is a musician. Oh, there are a few songs I don't like. "Beat It," by Michael Jackson. I never liked that one. And "You Are the Sunshine of My Life." Great, now by bringing those up, they'll probably be stuck in my head all day.

That "In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida." The kids would always play that, and it drove me up the wall. I liked some '60s songs, like "Proud Mary," "Let It Be," and "Yellow Submarine." I liked Herman's Hermits. But that song was awful. It was so long. It seemed like it never ended. Maybe I would've liked it more if the kids didn't play it so loud.

Jackie Heilman

From San Diego (Financial Manager)

I have that song by Carrie Underwood stuck in my head. The one about her getting revenge on the guy that cheats. Oh, my little sister used to always play the Spice Girls. She always played that song that goes, "Tell ya what I want/ What I really really want..." Now that they're touring again, it'll probably get played on the radio and again be stuck in my head.

Kevin Kenstler

From Las Vegas (Business Owner)

I always seem to get rap songs stuck in my head. And I hate rap. The songs stuck in my head are usually ones I like. Oh, there is one. That song from Winnie the Pooh. When the kids are watching TV and it comes on, it stays in my head for days. It's that song that goes "rain, rain, blustery day," or whatever. I've even been caught whistling it at work.

It would easily be Cat Stevens's song "Moon Shadow." It has the worst lyrics. He sings about losing his arms and how he'd then swim like a mermaid. The words are just creepy. He talks about losing his eyes. And, yes, the music is catchy. I like the melody. It just seems so perverted to sing about losing body parts. I even add my own lyrics, singing, "If I had a torso..." I even enclosed those lyrics in Christmas cards one year.
