Introduction: Get That Song Out of Your Head

Picture of Get That Song Out of Your Head

Songs get stuck in our heads and there is no way to get them out. But I found a way. This is my first instructable so please don't be mean.

Step 1: Write It

Write the name of your song on a piece of paper.

Step 2: Crumple It

Crumple up the piece of paper.

Step 3: Trash It

Throw out the piece of paper. I know the trick is silly but it does work. I think when you'r mind sees the song get thrown out it gets rid of it in you'r mind.

I found that singing the song(s) helps, and those dissipate from the mind quickly.

Don't we all? It's the penultimate example of an earworm and effective as an advertising ploy.

My tendency is to just listen to the song in it's entirety... as it's usually just part of a song that gets stuck in my head. For whatever reason listening to the whole thing get my mind 'unstuck' from the snippet.

But this might be something to try in case that doesn't work. :)

That works every time for me :-)

Worse on a long car trip when you hear a catchy song on the radio though...
