Now I have:

It's a cricketing farce with a thickening plot,
Act 1, Scene 1, Brenda Blethyn gets shot.

Stupid "let's all go to the lobby" thrad title gets a damn song in my head every time

It's like if I type "Hi, I'm Troy McClure! You're now reading this in my voice"

Yeah, I get both the titular bit as well as the "verse" part stuck in my head*.  It's my own damn fault.

But right now it's the Hallelujah Chorus, with emphasis on both the tenor and bass parts.

* and with it, the mental picture of that bizarre fucking stretchy family that goes to the lobby.

My head is currently treating me to "What's New, Pussycat?" except just that line replaced by whatever words/numbers I see that fit that meter, even only slightly.

I've also been singing the first two lines to Silver Bells in Spanish to myself for days (I forget how the rest of it goes) but I enjoy that a bit. I also turn all the Christmas songs into songs about hamsters.

So raise the scarlet standard high,
beneath its folds we'll live and die

Mmm. Christmas music.

I was introduced to "The Red Flag" via Billy Bragg's version, which isn't to the tune of O Tannenbaum, so I'm always confused whenever I hear the far more common Christmas song version.

Good old Billy. Doesn't he do something different with the Internationale too? It's been too long.

Billy Bragg was involved in the 'Cage Against The Machine' campaign this year actually. Only made Number 23 in the end, alas.

Yep, he wrote new lyrics for that. And here, too, his version is pretty much my reference point for the English-language version (unlike "The Red Flag", that one is also a staple among among German-language leftie hymns).

Ah yes I like that version! The tune is The White Cockade and it's so much better a marching song than O Tannenbaum. Who the hell marches in 3/4 time!

woke up at 4:39 am with Human League "money" jammed in my head, it was playing in my dream.  Mainly the "you can ha-a-ave my money, I don't neeed it anymore" part.

Now I just have "shoplifters of the world, unite and take over.  Shoplifters of the world hand it over hand it over hand it over" over and over.

A lot of 70s Elton John recently, I'll spare you the details.

Wow, Nick, that's pretty bad. Only thing worse than Elton John (of almost any vintage) is 80s Billy Joel I reckon.

I rest my case.

(though I did actually mean 'worse' in terms of earworms, 80s Billy Joel is some of my least favourite music on the planet. I understand that ymmv)
