Once in a while I get another earworm, but normally I listen to Chimes of Freedom and Tambourine Man on my internal ears.

In days past, long before even Sony Walkman, while stamping out metal parts in a factory, I could "play" entire albums in my head. At least until the drugs wore off...

This is the cure that I use:

1. Find a song that was once stuck in your head for a long, long time.
2. Sing that song.

My theory is that once you've had a song really stuck in your head for a long time, you are relatively immune to it. It will stick, but not for long.

So replace the new song with the old one, and you'll be free sooner.

The song I use is "The Chicken Dance Song."

Thanks, Al.

I prefer Tambourine Man.

This week the French National Anthem is stuck in my head, especially the marvelous scene from Casablanca: the French outsinging the Germans. Love all the tension in this scene!

Didn't look for a better thread for this but it is amazing to hear the wolves howling during this.

This baby monkey song pops in my head now and then. It is like a curse.
