Get That Song Out Of My Head!
“Christmas , Christmas time of year… time for joy and time for cheer” That little ditty from The Chipmunks was rolling around in my head when I awoke today. It stayed through my coffee, teeth brushing and drive to work. I swear five hours later I can still hear it in the background of my thoughts even as I type this. Songs always get stuck in a person’s head, but to me it seems Christmas time is the worst. I suppose its the sheer repetition of these songs everywhere you go… ( “Everywhere you gooooo”) Or maybe its the catchy jingle nature of their hooks. ( “jingle bells, jingle bells…) I’m not sure but I do know it can take a little jolly out of your holiday. (“Have a holly jolly Christmas…)
So, how do you get rid of them? Some people suggest a crossward or puzzle to take your mind off the song. Others would tell you to find the whole song, because usually your mind is just stuck on a loop of one part, and listen (“..where children listen… to hear…GRRR) to it all the way through.
I wish you luck! (“you a merry Christmas, I wish you..) Your gonna need it!
