What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head?

September 21st, 2010

Radio Friend Phil – I have a fun, simple question: What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head? How do you replace the song with a different tune? Recently, as I’ve been  jogging the streets of Lancaster City, it suddenly occurs to me that Michael W. Smith’s new song, “Save Me From Myself,” appears to be set ” on the repeat button” inside my head.  While I do like the song by Michael W. Smith, I’m simply trying to “jog to a different beat.” Since I prefer to jog without headphones, I’ve been applying different methods of putting other songs in my head. For instance, I will start humming a few lines of a different tune song– the moment I realize that  the Michael W. Smith song has sneaked back in to my brain again.  Another method I use is to visualize myself “turning the volume knob down” on the song that is stuck  and “turning the volume knob up” on the song I want to hear. So, what are your suggestions? What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head?
