LOL A frequent earworm of mine, too. My 3 year old walks around the house singing either this or the Thomas theme song all day long.


Those two along with Peppa Pig and Toopy & Binoo.

We've got big TVs with BNN and Bloomberg on all the time at the office and there is a car commercial of some sort with Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus". Every time I manage to get it out of my head the bloody commercial plays again...

Thankfully I have a fool proof method of getting rid of earworms. You just have to have a safety song that when you put that in your mind wipes out the other, yet it is one that doesn't stick in your mind. I've trained myself to use Tina Turner's "We don't need another hero". By the time I get to the end of the children's chorus the other song is gone and that song doesn't stick in my head. It's saved me a lot of pain and suffering.
The sound of one hand clapping-

I wish. I've got an internal soundtrack going about any time I'm not asleep or engaged in external or internal dialog, even sometimes when I'm listening to other music. Most of it I don't recognize, just a mash up of anything I may have heard anywhere, anytime.

The best way to shut it off is to listen to good classical music or jazz. Pop music just makes me turn up the internal volume.
