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

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. ::)
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.

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

So this morning I was stuck with Gilligan (thanks a lot, Ann!), and then it went downhill from there.... Cat's in the Cradle lasted about an hour... then a brief interlude of the Marilyn Monroe version of Happy birthday.... and now for the past couple of hours, Let's do the time warp agaaaaaaaiiin.... aaack!!

Why oh why does this never seem to happen with GOOD songs??

I want you to know that I'm now listening to the Rocky Horror soundtrack thanks to this thread :D

Science Fiction Double Feature........
Oh, if I head for the shelf with soundtracks, I can find a whole bunch that'll "stick"! Movie themes and musicals are great for that.

I liked Don't dream it, be it. Even had that phrase put on a t-shirt, along with butterflies or something, 20-plus years ago.

Now that one's stuck, but that's a definite improvement over the ones from the rest of the day. And it's such fun to belt out. Good thing I'm alone in the house. :D
