“A song currently stuck in your head”
I have something to say about ear worms. And I don’t mean the kind from Star Trek II.
A song’s ability to get into your head and just stay there isn’t necessarily proportional to how much you like it, even though that’s generally the way you wish it would work.
Right now, it’s “PonPonPon” by Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. This song is really cute and generally feel-good, so it’s not a bad thing at all to keep hearing it…unless I’m trying to concentrate on something important.

“A song that reminds you of your best friend”
Basically due to memories of watching Naruto together. This is “Go!!!” by FLOW, everyone’s favorite pre-Shippuden Naruto opening.
No, I don’t know why the official music video for this song is about a Terminator trying to skateboard either.
