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.

Humpty & Dumpty in the restaurant. Humpty said, "I'm hungry". Dumpty asked, "Dumplings?" Humpty answered, "Hundred". Dumpty said, "Dummy!" Humpty just sat humming the tune.

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.
