Fighting the power of stuck songs

I've posted more than once about songs that have gotten stuck in my head for days at a time, causing me much grief and anguish. But once in a while, a good song will get in there that I want to keep, because the rhythm or the bass line is so great. Today that song is Public Enemy's "Fight the Power"; I'm pretty sure that song was in Jarhead, which I saw on Friday. (I could be wrong about that.)

Coincidentally, that song contains samples from James Brown's music. A couple of weeks ago, Brown's "Get Up" was another one of those good stuck songs.
