Question: What song is stuck in your head right now, and why is it so sticky?
(from left to right)
“Anything by Katy Perry. It’s sticky for obvious reasons. ‘Teenage Dream’ is my jam.”
“‘Paper Thin Walls’ by Modest Mouse. It’s the combination of the excellent guitar and voices charged with emotion.”
“‘Time of Your Life,’ from [the movie] ‘Dirty Dancing.’ The Black Eyed Peas recently made a remix of it, and when I was running, it was in my head.”

“‘Dangerous’ by Akon. It’s sticky because it’s repetitive, so I can remember the lyrics and his voice is very distinctive and strange to me.”
