It's crazy how random songs just pop in your head and can stay lodged in your brain for days. If you are an avid listener of '80s music like I am, several repetitive songs seem to be the main culprits. These tracks can torture you by rhythm or by lyrics and sometimes both!
This lists contains 10 of the most repetitive songs from the '80s that often get stuck in my brain. Just for clarification, I'm not saying I dislike all these tracks. Several you will see are well known hits that lived on the top of the US pop chart. In fact, a few songs on this would make it into my '80s favorites, but some are probably in the unlistenable category for any music lover.
Feel free to add more to the list in the comments section!
"Shout" by Tears For Fears - Being a TFF fan, this is one repetitive track I can stand. In it's defense, the song does have a natural progression of verses which at least breaks up the recurrent chorus.
"Whip It" by Devo - Another track that I absolutely love in all of its synthesized glory. The rhythm and lyrics though are very mechanical which is why it deserves a spot on this list.
"Got My mind Set On You" by George Harrison - As a teenager, I found the music video highly entertaining. All the activity in the room and on the wall made it feel like being on a ride at Disney World. Now, the lyrics are just far too repetitious for my ears.
