Same song over and over?
You got a new CD, right? Or maybe even an old one. All right, it’s different with an entire CD. Say there’s one song on it that you really like. So you pop it in and start it up. How many times can you hear it until you can’t stand it anymore? Or do you even push yourself that far? Maybe you know that this will happen to you don’t even go there.
But then there are those that you hear over and over again until it is burned into your brain- war worm, they call it. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, no matter how many good songs you try to reprogram yourself with, that stupid song will get in there and it drives you crazy.
I especially hate it when there is one where you don’t know who sings it, or whet the title is (which happens to me rarely- I have accumulated that type of information throughout my life), and even worse, the ones you don’t know or remember the words to. How do you sing along in your head if you don’t know the words?
but then there are those times you get a good tune in there. That’s always good. I always wonder how any of them at all get in there, or how they get out again.
Say the words to the song over and over again and it should go away. At least that’s what I’ve heard. Maybe it’s a cure. Maybe it just burns it into your mind even deeper.
