the same song on a loop

When you have a song stuck in your head you...

listen to the song over and over
try to replace it with another song
hum along in your head until it goes away
pay attention to other things in hopes it will go away

Listen to it once.

This. I've heard that "finishing" the song will help your brain to get it unstuck.

That's what I do. Listen once, then immediately put on something else.

Every time I hear that McDonald's filet-o-fish commercial, it's in my head for days and days. Ugh.

The day I realized I have that song memorized, I realized that McDonalds must have the best jingle-creators ever. Or McDonalds is just particularly inspiring because that viral Chicken McNuggets song is pretty darn catchy, too.

OMG... I haven't heard that one, but that reminds me of the Jack-in-the-Box's miniature Western burgers one... that one was obnoxious, and I was glad when they quit airing that one.

If I need to make the song go away, I just sing it like Bob Dylan. More like "Blonde On Blonde"-Dylan than "Modern Times"-Dylan. Get that nice famous nasal-y twang into it. See "Girl from the North Country" or "Like a Rolling Stone" for examples.

HOWEVER, if you get a Bob Dylan song stuck in your head, then growl it out like Death Metal. :)

It depends whether I like the song or not. Sometimes I like the song and just hum or sing it over and over. But when it's something annoying (like the theme from one of my s.o.'s video games for example) I try and replace it with another piece of music.

Dude... that is more or less what I said. :D +1 to this forever.

Depends on the song. If it's one I like, I usually just enjoy it until it goes away (provided that it's not earworming me to the point where I can't stand to hear it anymore -- y helo thar "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer, which was played ad nauseum the entire summer of 1999 from every radio station in the world). More likely, it's a song I HATE, in which case I will do whatever I can to try to replace it in my mind.
