I was scrolling past something on the net and it made me think of the bossa nova song and now I can't get it out of my head

I've read/heard a number of times that the best way to get a song out of your head is to sing through the whole song.

Personally, that's never worked for me, probably because I never know the lyrics, just the tune.  ::)

Are you talking about the old one "blame it on the bossa nova"? I remember my mom singing that one forty years ago...

I think what works is to go find it -- on CD, tape, vinyl, anything -- and listen to it all the way through. Helps me whenever I get stuck.

Except that it's usually not a song I actually like. Most of the time when I get one stuck in my head it's some stupid song I would never own. :eek:

Sowwy, ;) I have it stuck because I started talking about a knee surgery I had years ago, and as the surgeon came in he asked me "Are you ready" ? and just before they knocked me out his assistant CRANKEDE-UP that song! He actually did the first incisions singing it he said! How appropriate, 'cause I wasn't gonna be walking anywhere for a while ;D

Someone mentioned a song to me yesterday I had not heard it in decades. It is now playing, replaying, and playing again and again in my head.

No Tell Lover. ARGH!!!

Omg this thread made me laugh. I do that all the time with certain songs. Sometimes the songs are so random I don't even know why they are in my head.

I can't stop humming "I Dreamed a Dream".  Blame it on Susan Boyle.  I wish I could sing it like her but humming is all I am capable of!

O.K.  Here's further distraction:  Did you know you can sing the theme from Gilligan's Island to the tune of Amazing Grace and vice versa?  Go ahead. . . .try it. . . . .

Oh nooo.... in just over an hour I'm going to be sitting in a church listening to a too-long speech about the future of kindergartners, and it's going to be so hard to refrain from tapping my feet to that now...

...still, at least it will keep me awake through the boring part. :D
