submit to reddit

According to The Lego Movie's super-catchy theme tune, 'Everything Is Awesome!!!'. In fact: "Everything is awesome / Everything is cool when you're part of a team / Everything is awesome, when we're living our dream / Everything is better when we stick together / Side by side, you and I gonna win forever, let's party forever / We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me, we're all working in harmony." And because these words will remains in our heads for the rest of time, here are 24 other examples of cinematic earworms that will never, ever go away. Enjoy!

‘EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!’

From: The Lego Movie (2014)

Tegan and Sara (and The Lonely Island crew) might be the face of the song, but you’d have to blame three kinda-sorta unknowns – Shawn Patterson, Joshua Bartholomew and Lisa Harriton – for coming up with it. Perhaps you should also point a finger (or just a curved plastic hand claw) at its producer, Mark Mothersbaugh. Find them all on Twitter, then shower them with praise, before setting up a Lego shrine in a feeble hope that the catchier than catchy chorus will, one day, leave you in peace. N.B. It won’t.

I felt that The Karate Kid and TBOTRK were similar to both of those -- though they are undoubtedly huge earworms -- so if I get the time I'll add them on Thursday (I'm away today). As for Cap, I wanted something new on the list, as a lot of it was very nostalgic (ironic, considering the song's nature...) More

Oompa Loompas predicted the fake tan epidemic way back in 1971, who knew? I'm more partial to Underground from Labyrinth myself with the gospel choir that kicks in midway through, one of David Bowie's forgotten songs that should have been a bigger hit in 1986. More
