How do you deal with a song stuck in your head?

I thought of this while conversing U2U with a fellow member. I put this in this forum as I do find it annoyingly amusing.

I know this has happened too many of you. C’mon admit it! It can drive folk bat[snip] crazy sometimes. Sometimes it is the full song, but more often than not, it is just the chorus…repeating itself over and over and over.


Often, though not always, it is a song you hate or at least dislike, but it received enough radio play in your youth that it is now ingrained in your memory.

Sometimes it is a song that you like, but since it keeps playing over and over in your mind, it gets monotonous.

How do you get rid of it?

During our conversation, one of my replies was,

“I find that when a song gets stuck in my cranium a good drill...uh, no, don't try that...

I go to YouTube and listen to it if it isn't in my library. It's my way of getting it out of my system.

For instance, I'll hear "Safety Dance" on the radio at work and it'll be stuck in my gray matter until I get home.

Thank God it is not in my library, but it is on YT.”

What works for you?

Other than a murderous frenzy.

I just listen to something else. Within seconds, the song once stuck in my head is gone.

On a lighter note:

Simply put your tongue to the roof of your mouth and hold it there.

Play the song backwards and it will cancel each other out.

Hmmmm, maybe.

But will I end up getting possessed?


Methinks that would be a bad thing.

I'll trade you, I used to love this one but right now I'll settle for Safety Dance for a break.

Guess I'll have to buy a Benz to get rid of it . . . . .

Sing from the roof tops and pass it on to others
so they can zombie on with it.

Go ahead and sing it out loud...go with it...own it!


If it is a good song...roll with it...much better than half the stuff we have stuck in our head most of the time anyway!

I read something about this once. Apparently, this happens when you mind gets stuck on a certain part of the song, rather than the whole song. The cure, supposedly, is to listen to the entire song the whole way through, start to finish. This gets you mind unstuck from the portion of the song it was previously stuck in.
