For me, Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” is the penicillin that kills earworms dead. Had to break it out the other day as two of the girls in my neighborhood decided to practice the lyrics to “Oh Mickey” at top volume, over and over and over.

And the worst part about it? They had the lyrics wrong, and so of course, I corrected them in my head, and once I did, the lyrics were there to stay for hours…ugh.
