Brain Itch

I woke up this morning with a song in my head, as I woke I found myself repeating the chorus of Lady Gaga's Paparazzi over and over, rather annoying! I don't even recall hearing that song yesterday but somehow my internal jukebox decided to select that song. This seems to happen to me a lot, waking up with a song in my head.

I got to thinking about how songs get stuck in your head and decided to look in to it. I found this article on the BBC website which explains all about it. Apparently it's called a brain itch (or earworms which sounds gross!) it seems once you get a brain itch the only way to scratch it is to repeat the song over and over! And women are more susceptible to them than men.

So, does anyone have a song playing in their head today?

Thankfully none! And I don't want to try and remember the last one that got stuck in my head just in case it decides to come back!!!
