First TL song to get stuck in your head

Postby tastyonions » Wed Sep 12, 2018 11:35 am

I don't generally make a big effort to look for music in my TLs but eventually I come across some songs that really stick in my brain. For Dutch the first happened to be this one:



What was the first song that really stuck in your head for your TLs?

I liked a few Korean songs already before I heard this one, but I think it was the first one to get really stuck in my head. Thanks to this song and another song of theirs, SHINee eventually became the first Kpop group I became a fan of and led to me becoming a Kpop fan.

This is my first earworm in a target language dating from when I embarked on learning Hungarian when Usenet and CDs ruled the Earth, Napster didn't exist, and I fantasized about getting FSI Hungarian Basic for Christmas.

I went to a tiny French immersion preschool in Northern California where we met once a week to sing songs. Frère Jacques got stuck in my head for years, along with a song "Avec ma baguette magique" that I think was made up by the teacher. After those few months of classes I grew up monolingual but I still know those songs, or parts of them at least.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

After all these years I still don't know many songs in Spanish, but this is definitely a favorite, embarrassingly...
