Can anyone recommend an earworm replacement?

Asked by lucillelucillelucille (31468points) 3 weeks ago

I love this song but I need it to leave my head as I have reached my limit of 10,000 repeats. Thanks (I think) in advance :)

I find any Stones tune is Kryptonite to ear worms.

To rid (not replace) an earworm I sing Soft Kitty from Big Bang theory a couple of times, then the earworm is gone. Soft Kitty doesn’t stick around.

@lucillelucillelucille Here is a song that will give you 10 hours of ear worm protection at a time. You are most welcome and I pm’d you my address so you can send a thank you check.

@lucillelucillelucille Try turning up the volume to 11 works every time.

I was recently reading about this subject & the so-called expert said to find another song with long lyrics & sing it through just once. After that, you will lose the stuck song & the brain won’t be able to remember all the words to the long song. I haven’t needed to try it since I read it, but you can let me know IF it works!!! LoL

@LadyMarissa -Thanks for this!
The only thing I need to worry about is dodging cabbages once I open my mouth to sing. Lol

@lucillelucillelucille My bucket has a hole in it too. Since I DON’T sing the stuck tune out loud, I’m assuming that you DON’T need to sing the long tune out loud. Try singing it silently to yourself & see IF it works. What you got to lose???
