Ever Had That One Song Playing Over In Your Head-Here's Why

Sometimes you can't help but sing that same song over and over.

We all do it from time to time.

And we all wonder Why?

Well now you will find out what causes this.

For example..

Have you ever had something incredibly terrible yet catchy stuck in your head for days at a time? Well, now you have a name for this horrible phenomenon, which scientists have dubbed an “earworm.”

The explanation some scientists give basically involves your brain getting stuck in a loop. You probably remember one verse of whatever catchy song you are stuck with almost perfectly, but don’t know the rest of the song as well.

After singing the first verse, your brain tries to move on to the next, but doesn’t know the rest of the song. Because your brain likes to go back to unfinished
thoughts, it gets stuck in a loop, continually trying to start again and finish the song.

After presumably struggling to get the Spice Girls out of their heads, a group of scientists were determined to find out how to break this spell. After a lot of study, their advice is a sort of Goldilocks philosophy—you need to focus on a cognitive activity that isn’t too easy or too hard.

They suggest solving anagrams or reading a novel.
