Miraculously, none of those Justin Timberlake songs got stuck in my head.
Instead, because I mentioned it once in the review, fucking "My Humps" got stuck in my head. If ever there was a song that could make "SexyBack" sound like an intricate and nuanced work of musical genius...
Return to Cookie Mountain is an effective cure for this malady.
Part of me sympathizes with your pain, but a larger part of me is laughing hysterically. (Kind of like what happened at a certain A's game...)
I remember you posting about that song being the worst ever written, and putting this charming little link to the song itself. I was briefly tempted to click on that link and actually experience the horror, but common sense prevailed. I have never heard that song, and with luck I never will.
The sad thing is that I only heard it that one time myself (not counting the mashup I heard with Arcade Fire's "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)"), and I can still get it stuck in my head almost a year later. It's not just bad, but bad in a very memorable way. (Although, being another low-entropy song, it doesn't take much effort to remember it.)
