Song always stuck in my head?
« on: November 22, 2013, 06:50:01 PM »
Am i alone on this one?  :sprachlos020:
Seems like whenever im not concentrating on something or reading i get songs stuck in my head and they just repeat over and over until i get distracted by something else...

Anyone else? Its pretty annoying

I don't have OCD. But heck I suddenly come out with words in my mind. I know they are from a song. I won't give up till I know what song those words are from. But the average person can hear a song and then be stuck with it all day. Until they find something else to do. That is the trick. Just look for something to stop your thoughts. Find something new to focus on. Nothing worse than a song stuck in your head. Especially if its a crap song.  :laugh3:

I haven't been diagnosed with OCD, just GAD, but yes I almost constantly have a song stuck in my head. It starts the moment I wake up and persists until I get busy with school or work. The same section of the song plays over and over and over! You're not alone. I don't think it's really anything bad though!

Lis are you on any medications? If so this could be a side effect. I had this happen to me nonstop when I was on Klonopin. It stopped when I finally got off the drug.

I have this same problem. I think it's partly because I'm a musician and listen to music all day long. I also have one "earworm" that keeps resurfacing randomly. It's the "doobie doobie doop doop doop, ahh-ahhh" part from Annie Lennox's "No More I Love You's." I absolutely hate it and wish I could wipe it out of my memory. But for years, it just keeps coming back. Grrrr.

I have this too.  I notice it the most when I first get up in the morning.  Like you, once I get busy or distracted, it seems to go away.

I have OCD, and songs can be triggers like this.  My husband knows that if a song comes on that I turn off immediately, it's one that will get particularly stuck in my head.  The problem is, I don't know if it's one of the "bad" ones until it repeats over and over (usually just a small section of it) in a weird semi-awake state as I'm trying to sleep.  I go through night compulsions with trying to get to bed, and that will trigger whatever "bad" song happened that day.  I hear ya!
