A Simple Trick to Get a Song out of your Head

in music •  last year

At some point or another, everyone's had a song stuck in their head.

It's not always a bad thing. But if you're trying to fall asleep or concentrate on something important, it can drive you completely crazy.

Well fear not fellow Steemians, because today, I'm going to teach you a simple trick that will get even the most annoying songs out of your head with ease.

Unsticking a song in 3 Easy Steps:

I'm going to walk you through a very simple visualization exercise. In many cases, it will unstick the song immediately. If the song persists after you try this technique, simply try it a few more times. That usually does the trick.

1) Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths

Stop whatever it is you happen to be doing and sit or lay down somewhere comfortable. You want to be as relaxed as possible, so close your eyes and take several slow deep breaths.

2) Imagine that the song is playing from a set of speakers

The idea here is to externalize the source of the sound. Imagine that it is not in your head, but being played from a set of speakers in front of you. I like to imagine the song is coming out of one of those old school looking boomboxes.

Alternatively, you can imagine that there is some person in front of you, singing the song.

3) Imagine the source of the sound exploding

Once you have a clear sense of the music being played from an external source, imagine the speakers (or the person) exploding. Imagine the sound this explosion would make and hear the music come to a screeching halt. Marvel at the silence that follows.

And that's all there is to it! I hope you all find this as helpful as I have.

Great post bro. I will try your technique but I fear that I'll have to try it a fewer more times again and again and again.

In addition, One may have to remember that our world is run basically by principles and Laws. It's our duty to be either ignorant of this fact or knowledgeable about it and use it to our advantage.

Two of these laws is
  1. The Law of Displacement
  2. Nature abhors Vacuum
The law of displacement states that a law will continue to exist if a superior law doesn't come into play or into the scene.
In other words, the effect of a smaller law is annuled once a bigger Law/authority/Principle comes into the scene.

The song gets into your head in the first place through your auditory gates, your ears. And somehow is replaying because of another Law

In addition, one has to be aware of the fact that There has to be a song always on or in your mind's playlist. It can either be paused or tuned down per time depending on one's dominant

Garbage in, Garbage out.

All one needs to do is to look for another law that is higher than whatever laws are playing at the moment. And the Principle of displacement of a lower law by a higher one wins

In this case,

  1. Look for your favourite songs that spur you up emotionally and connects to your soul and spirit and plug it into your system through your ear gates either with A very good ear bud or Headphone.
  2. leave the songs on repeat with a high volume.
After sometime, you will find out that the right songs that get you going and more productive are what remains in your system.

Wow.. amazing trick.. love it.. thanks for sharing sir.. keep it up sir..

Great post :) thanks for your help

This is interesting @mindover. I teach piano by ear and I teach exactly the opposite to get the song into their head so that they can play by ear. But I know what you are saying in this post. Upvoted and followed.
