But it’s not always something you hate. Sometimes it’s smart and very amusing and yes, catchy, like this one:
I don’t mind that one being in my head all the time. On the contrary; it keeps amusing me.
However, sometimes it’s somewhat amusing, but not so much that I’d want to listen to it over and over again, like this one (and keep in mind that I do like Weird Al):
Now, what do you do when a song refuses to get out of your head? As a writer, I tend to use writing when something – anything – refuses to get out of my head. And, a few years ago, I wrote a story about a song refusing to get out of a young woman’s head – a song which turned out to be a sort of a parasite, seeking to mate and to make a new song.
The story was entertaining, even if I say so. 🙂 And it was a great fun writing it. But it didn’t help; the unwanted song (I no longer remember which one it was) was still in my head. The writing, it turned out, wasn’t a cure for everything.
The only cure I found for a song refusing to leave my head is listening to another song, just as catchy, but more powerful, and a beautiful one. Like this:
I hope you enjoy the cure as much as I do!
