Persistent Ear Worms

Do you have a persistent ear worm? A snippet of a tune that gets stuck in your brain for weeks on end? One which you find yourself humming at the most inopportune of moments, or whistling in the shower?

The only thing that seems to stop it is watching clips from the actual show.
