    Ok, one of my favorites - catchy meets quirky and definitely an ear worm. After it is stuck in your brain you can sing it to friends and family on their birthdays, or randomly blurt out lyrics when relevant ("TIME!.... is marching on!")

    I don't know very much of their output, but I loved 'Birdhouse In Your Soul' the first time I heard it, and I still do. And I reckon it should be on this list!

    The majority of the album "Flood" which contains "Birdhouse in Your Soul" should be on this list.

    I just created a playlist (from Tidal/Wimp) with all the songs I could find from this thread up until now. Attached. If someone's interested feel free to try (just remove the last .txt in the attached file and add to your playlist library on LMS, rescan and it should appear in the Playlist menu).

    I missed a handful of songs, couldn't find them on Tidal. If you miss your contribution in the thread, sorry.

    Going Home, by Mark Knopfler.

    I feel like I'm straying away from the original intention, which was to find tracks that grab you by your lapels from note one and force you to sing along or start playing the dashboard drum kit, but this track has an incredibly catchy melody and an irresistible build-up, and never fails to get me whistling along.

    agree. as long as we are in Mark Knophler + "catchy" mode, how about "So Far Away" and "Walk of Life", both from Dire Straits "Brothers in Arms" (which btw, is great beginning to end, especially the last 3 or so songs, great headphone music).
