Because I tried that earlier and just ended up listening to "The Sign" 20 times in succession (and various covers thereof, including at least half a dozen different renditions by The Mountain Goats).

It usually works better if I pick a completely different song and listen to that instead. Then only the new song will be stuck in my head!

Yeah, that doesn't work for me. It does help me sing it better when it is stuck in my head, though.

I just try to replace it with Can't Stop me Now. It's like 35% effective, which is pretty good for this particular problem!
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

The more Tupac I listen to the worse it gets until my brain overloads and I reset and can move on to something else.

Depends on the song.

i ended up replacing it with "Ignition (Remix)" and got that one out of my head after just two plays. So that was kind of a roundabout way of getting it out of my head temporarily.

I mean, "The Sign" is back there now but it's a really enjoyable song.

Like, I kind of wish it had more lyrics so the loop wouldn't be so small but what're you gonna do.

And if you think about it, "demanding without understanding" is a sort of insightful answer to the question "what is love?"

My tolerance for repeated exposure to songs that sink their meat hooks into me is extremely high, so this method works for me, but I am often prepared to listen to a song for like, an entire day before it works.
