You might not be able to get a song out of your head after coming across this listing in Oceanside.

“As Robert Palmer says, ‘Simply Irresistible!’” the online real estate ad for the house says, referring to the 1988 hit tune and its memorable music video featuring supermodels.

The goal was to catch a potential buyer’s eye, says Tim Murphy of Home and Hearth Realty Group, who is listing the house for $489,000. And it might be working — Murphy says he has received quite a few calls on the eight-room split-level.

He wanted to set the song to accompany a virtual tour of the home, but couldn’t because of copyright laws, he says.
