Scientists Have Figured Out How To Get A Song Out Of Your Head [VIDEO]

There’s nothing worse than having an annoying song stuck in your head. Of course, that won’t happen if you keep it on 95-1 The Moose. But, if and when it does, scientists have finally figured out a way to get you some peace:

Dr. Ira Hyman, a music psychologist at Western Washington University, just finished a study that reveals the best way to get a song out of your head. All you have to do is solve a puzzle that’s ‘sort of’ hard.

Apparently, when a song is stuck in your head, it’s 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. Remember to pick a puzzle or game that is not too easy or too hard (otherwise it won’t engage your mind enough).

Check out the full article from The Telegraph.

Researchers found Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” was one of the easiest songs to get stuck in your head. Click on this if you dare:
