That Darn Song

It happens to all of us: a song gets into your head and refuses to get out. The main thing about that song is that it’s catchy; you don’t have to like it – and if you happen to hate that particular song, it’s even more annoying if it keeps pestering you.

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!

  1. Ivana, what a fantastic post! And the music was amazing! I have to say I have never heart Lilly Allen's colorful song before today. The song in my head situation has ailed me and I think your solution to making that go away is brilliant. I will surely try the next time it happens to me. In the meantime, I'm going to listen to the tunes in your post and hope to they don't stay stuck in my head! 🙂
