There are certain songs that become indelibly burned into your brain long after it's finished and you can no longer un-hear it. Blame it on a catchy hook or resonating lyrics; everyone has a favorite tune they could listen to repeatedly without it getting old. What's yours?

Musician and editor at "Mad Magazine," Allie Goertz, wanted to know.


On Tuesday morning, the Twitter user asked a simple question: "What's a POPULAR song you'll never get tired of? Nothing obscure."

Her favorite song is a classic pop/rock tune by The Cars.


Nothing beats an 80s classic like this perennial favorite from Toto.


This October 1982 single from a popular Australian band was considered to be their first international single but also this girl's jam.


R.I.P. to the talented rock star with a symbol for a moniker. But for most of us, he'll always be remembered as pop music royalty.



This Tears For Fears classic was originally called "Everybody Wants To Go To War" but was altered to the familiar lyrics we know today.

In spite of the light shuffle beat, band member Curt Smith described the song as anything but upbeat.

The concept is quite serious โ€“ it's about everybody wanting power, about warfare and the misery it causes.



So far, are you sensing a pattern with the song selections?


Not everything was stuck in the 80s and bound by gummy bracelets. There were plenty of contemporary chart-toppers featured like this ditty from Miley Cyrus.

"Part in the U.S.A." was the seventh most digitally downloaded single of 2009 and is a fitting selection to this thread. Vicki Lutas from BBC commented:

However cringe it sounds, your favourite song can make you feel okay and feel more confident, even if you're not really.



Britney can't deliver a catchy pop hook, said no one ever.



People love Bruno Mars, but this choice was debatable among other fans.





Third Eye Blind was one of many alternative bands dominating the 90s. This was a signature hit and was meant as a response to Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side," but from the perspective of San Francisco.

Lead singer Stephen Jenkins explained that the song uptempo feel was just a veneer for the darkness of crystal meth addiction.

[The song is] bright and shiny on the surface, and then it just pulls you down in this lockjawed mess ... The music that I wrote for it is not intended to be bright and shiny for bright and shiny's sake. It's intended to be what the seductiveness of speed is like, represented in music.


"Wonderwall" by Oasis was allegedly written for frontman Noel Gallagher's then-girlfriend, but after he later divorced her, he retracted his statement about the song's intention.

He said in an interview with British's New Musical Express:

The meaning of that song was taken away from me by the media who jumped on it, and how do you tell your Mrs it's not about her once she's read it is? It's a song about an imaginary friend who's gonna come and save you from yourself."


How can anybody not bebop along to this?



The list continued growing.





Why, thank you for your contribution, Mr. McKean from Better Call Saul!




But eventually, we always land back on the classics, like this famous Styx song from 1977.


Some of the classics listed transcend decades.


It's time to revisit our old mixtapes. That's ancient-speak for "playlists."


So, what's that one song for you?
