Why do the stuck songs have to be so lousy? You think I actually WANT Backstreet Boys bouncing around my brain for hours?!?
Why we can’t get that song out of our heads
With rare exceptions, the brain has a deep affinity for music

“One evening in 1995, a Montreal real estate agent and his wife went out for a romantic dinner. It was their wedding anniversary. They felt fortunate. The husband had suffered a minor stroke a few years earlier and had recovered. In neurological test after test, his reading, speech, memory and motor functions seemed to be normal. He had even returned to work and made some lucrative deals. During dinner, his wife noticed a violinist playing for restaurant patrons. ‘Let’s get him to play our song,’ she suggested.”
