    The 'catchiest' songs ever?

    In my car I have a playlist of a few hundred tracks that are all good for singing along to or tapping the steering wheel to - I leave it in shuffle mode, and if I'm not in the mood for a particular track I just skip to the next one. But there are a few track in that list that stand out as especially 'catchy' - even in a playlist of my favourites they're in a league of their own for 'catchiness'. I think it's the combination of a strong beat and an irresistible melody. So I thought I'd see what tracks everyone else finds 'catchy'. Maybe I can update my playlist with some of the suggestions.

    To get the ball rolling, here are some examples:

    Bee Gees - You Win Again
    Take That - Shine
    Supertramp - It's Raining Again
    Roy Orbison - You Got It

    What can you add?

    Yep - that fits the bill. I was never a fan of Alf myself, but as soon as I read your post that track was in my head!

    I've started an LMS playlist with just these tracks.

    I added 'Mike Oldfield - Moonlight Shadow'

    I'm a huge Queen fan, so I fully agree. Especially WWRY/WATC. My car playlist has them both, but alas they rarely play together. Maybe I should just make a single track from the two of them.
