 A recent scientific study has found that the best way to get rid of a song
that’s playing over and over in your head — what’s known as an “earworm” — is
to do a puzzle.Dr. Ira Hyman of Western Washington University explained that the reason it
works is that puzzles keep the brain busy, and the brain’s more susceptible to
continued earworms if it isn’t as occupied. Puzzles that focused on five-letter
anagrams were particularly effective, and the researchers also recommended
reading a good novel. What songs create the worst ear worms? The researchers
found in their study that Lady Gaga tunes were the biggest culprit,
particularly “Alejandro” and “Bad Romance.”
