Scientists Have Figured Out How To Get a Song Out of Your Head

Mar 25, 2013 -- 10:16am


There's nothing worse than having an annoying SONG stuck in your head.  Of course, that would never happen because of OUR show.  cheeky  But if it does, scientists have finally figured out a way to get you some peace. enlightened

Dr. Ira Hyman is a music psychologist at Western Washington University.  He just finished a study that found the best way to get a song out of your head is . . . solving a puzzle that's 'sort of' hard.

When you have a song stuck in your head, it's actually because that song is dominating your working memory.

When you force your brain to concentrate on something else, like a Sudoku puzzle or a video game, you can push the song out.

But if you pick a puzzle or a game that's too easy or too hard, it won't engage your mind enough.  So as long as it's sort of hard, it should work.
