i.e. songs [usually with simple silly repetitive words] you listen to, then end up singing with singer.

To me it's "I'm Henry the Eighth I Am" by Herman's Hermits & "Mr. Sandman" by The Chordettes. Those bam-bam-bam's, can't resist them. In Hermits' case, I even say "2nd verse same as the 1st!", in the same intonation.

A number of abba songs, broadway musical songs, journey songs, and me too: livin on a prayer. Melodrama, bathos and pathos get me singing.

Cool pick. Don't forget last 5 minutes in "Hey Jude" - "Na...na,na, na-na-na-na...na-na-na-na" etc. It can go like that non-stop.

...Build Me Up Buttercup...

I heard this the other day at the grocery store. The cashier started singing along and then I joined her.

I read recently if you are in a foreign country and want to pick out the Americans, play "Sweet Caroline." Who among us can resist singing the chorus - Sweet Caroline, BUM BUM BUM. ...

Surfin USA, Yellow Submarine and the Hokey Pokey are good too
