I've got a coworker who does that constantly, and just happens to know every note of every song that's ever been played on the radio. He thinks nobody can hear him because of all the machinery running in the background, but we can. There's frequently an exchange of pained glances and muted chuckles whenever he doo-dee-doos something particularly epic.

I'm Losing my Edge by LCD Soundsystem.

One of the best songs in the last 10 years, let alone one of the best bands in the past 20 years. Typically, when I listen to this song, I feel the same way. But not today, I'm actually getting shit done. Odd.
