33 Pop Music Facts Now Spinning In Our Brains

Is there anything more annoying than getting a little bit of a song stuck in your head? It's usually not the whole thing in it's entirety, just a couple of bars or lyrics, the chorus, or the bridge. Sometimes it's not even a song that you LIKE, just an irresistible earworm that you find yourself humming in the shower or in your car… And you're just stuck with it living inside of your brain until it decides to pass. (Anyone who says “Oh, just listen to the song!” is an idiot, that doesn't help anything.)

Below are a bunch of facts about some of our favorite pop songs… Sorry in advance if find yourself stuck with them afterwards.
