Thread Name: Songs that haunt you
Subject: Songs that haunt you
I don't know if there has been a thread about this before, but does anyone have songs or tunes that just seem to haunt them.

By haunting,I mean they won't go away until you have learnt them, and played them until you are comfortable with them. Only then do they seem to have been exorcised.

My list would have to include Ode to Billie Joe, it's had me ever since it came out, last week it was Still Crazy after All These Years, before that Hard Times, On Raglan Road and I suspect the next one will be, of all things, Vengaboys with Uncle John from Jamaica. There has been a few reels, marches, jigs etc., but the recent thread on Billie Joe really got me thinking.

Does this happen to anyone else?
