Got a Song Stuck in Your Head?

German has a word for EVERYTHING. Most of them aren't anything special (like the last post), but some are (i.e. Schadenfreude). A new one I learned today is Ohrwurm -- when you have a song stuck in your head (think of "The Imperial March" from "The Empire Strikes Back"), you have an Ohrwurm (literally, "ear worm").
