I think there are a couple of triggers for me personally:

1. An extremely catchy melody (viz. "Don't Fear the Reaper", "Don't You Worry Child", "My Number")

2. The song points to particularly memorable or emotional times, good or bad (viz. "Wish You Were Here", "Alright")

3. The intro/outro of the song is so awesome that you want to here the whole thing again just to get to that part (viz. "Liege of Inveracity", "Grinning Mouths", "Execrations Text")

4. There's so much going on in the song that one is trying to figure it out (viz. "Some Mist")
