earworm \ˈir-wərm\ noun: a piece of music that repeats compulsively within one’s mind (colloquially “music stuck in one’s head”)

Etymology: German Ohrwurm

Wikipedia remarks, “Earworms should not be confused with endomusia, which is a serious affliction in which someone actually hears music that is not playing externally.”
