The Best Worst: Ear Worm

One of the best things about December (and there are many, it’s a great month) is the flurry of countdowns and best-ofs leading up to the new year. Expect to see a lot of that here.

I get songs stuck in my head like, well, I’ve just spent 15 minutes trying to come up with a metaphor that would suitably describe both the frequency and tenacity that songs stick in my head, without success. It’s a lot, just trust me. I have a library of snippets in my head, but pop culture is always adding to it.

The Best Worst Song To Have Stuck In Your Head Of 2011?

Tonight, Tonight by Hot Chelle Rae

It is insidious. I actually woke up humming it this morning (yes, as a few lucky souls have noted, I sort of hum in my sleep sometimes.) It is catchy, yet grating. I turn up my nose to it and bop my head at the same time. And there’s just a glimmer of misogyny for flavor. Of course, my iTunes would be awfully Ani-heavy if I only listened to music that had zero misogynistic undertones.

Having watched this video a number of times (for RESEARCH!), I’m wondering if Trouty Mouth is actually in this band, or just an actor in the video. I’m not wondering it enough to google it, but I’m curious.

  1. This is my personal Worst Song of 2011. But it’s still not as bad as my Worst Song of All Time, “Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne.
