Earworms !!!

Have you ever had an “earworm” ? Have you ever had a song or tune that you couldn’t get it out of your head?  Especially, in the wee hours of the night when trying to sleep? Researchers now understand why?  They call these tunes earworms.  Basically, the melody is distinctive, has unique interval patterns within the pitches that set them apart from the average pop song. The song must be interesting but not too complicated for the brain to remember.  Tempo is also important as faster paced songs are more likely to pop into your head at inappropriate moments and more difficult to dislodge from the brain.  There is no one cure but some people say that seeking out the tune and listening to it all the way through to get closure helps.  Doesn’t work for everyone.  So when you go to bed tonight….remember Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star…!!
