Wife had a TV show on, background song by Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, or one of them other weenie types playing. One of those with catchy lyrics and a "nice" melody.

I can't stand it.

No No No wink



Anyone else have a good solution to that earworm problem?

Why is it, that when you get a tune stuck in your head it's always an annoying one, one you can't stand?

They tested a bunch of methods for removing earworms. The best turned out to be doing simple math problems in your head. It is theorized that earworms result from brain inactivity-- it starts idling. Doing simple math problems will get it out of idle and the earworm goes away. Keeping it away might require a ball peen hammer.

I've always found that singing ELO's "I can't get it out of my head" works for me.




BTW: If you're looking for a catchy earworm:



When Angus was in grade school, he learned it, and used to sing it incessantly.

This has been my ear worm for the past couple days. If you're going to have one, make it a good one.

Administer some "smoke on the water" three times as day..

But "happiness is a warm gun"

So maybe "smoke from the barrel" would work better.
