Assuming you have heard the story of how I'm Not in Love was recorded?
Walkin' The Dog - Rufus Thomas version.
Cold, Cold, Cold - Little Feat
Get Out My Life Woman - Paul Butterfield
Rare moment for me! I've actually song'd myself out, having been grading papers & exams non-stop for the last week. This was the last one I played about 10 times in a row:
Great thread, by the way! Lots of powerful snaggers here.
Billy Strings --- Dust in a baggie
RJ Ronquillo --- Mr Moto
REM --- What's the frequency kenneth
No, I haven't.
You were on my mind ~ We Five
Break it to me gently ~ Brenda Lee
I still miss someone ~ Linda Ronstadt
As you can see I am stuck in the early 60's and play with a female vocalist.
Great thread, @Skydog1010.

Keep listing as your earworms change up.
+1 on White Room - Cream
Whiter Shade of Pale - Poco Harem
Snow Blind Friend - Steppenwolf
I have been in a strange musical journey lately, so not the normal earworms, more of listening to these to artificially create earworms:
"Catch Hell Blues" - White Stripes
"I'll Be So Glad" - southern chain gang actual recording (I have been singing this out in the forest on a daily basis)?
"Grinnin' In Your Face" - Son House
1. Mack the Knife - Bobby Darin
2. Once - Pearl Jam (still in my head. was working on the solo last night).
3. Steve Martin - Mack the Knife parody. Can't find it anywhere, of course. NBC rivals only Viacom in its web scraping ability.
Stewart spent three weeks recording Gouldman, Godley and Creme singing "ahhh" 16 times for each note of the chromatic scale, building up a "choir" of 48 voices for each note of the scale. The main problem facing the band was how to keep the vocal notes going for an infinite length of time, but Creme suggested that they could get around this issue by using tape loops. Stewart created loops of about 12 feet in length by feeding the loop at one end through the tape heads of the stereo recorder in the studio, and at the other end through a capstan roller fixed to the top of a microphone stand, and tensioned the tape. By creating long loops the 'blip' caused by the splice in each tape loop could be drowned out by the rest of the backing track, providing that the splices in each loop did not coincide with each other. Having created twelve tape loops for each of the 12 notes of the chromatic scale, Stewart played each loop through a separate channel of the mixing desk. This effectively turned the mixing desk into a musical instrument complete with all the notes of the chromatic scale, which the four members together then "played", fading up three or four channels at a time to create "chords" for the song's melody. Stewart had put tape across the bottom of each channel so that it was impossible to completely fade down the tracks for each note, resulting in the constant background hiss of vocals heard throughout the song. Composer and music theory professor Thomas MacFarlane considered the resulting "ethereal voices" with distorted synthesized effects to be a major influence on Billy Joel's hit ballad "Just the Way You Are", released two years later.
