Everyone knows had bad a day can become with a melody such as "It's A Small World" stuck in their head.
Well, I propose a compilation CD of tunes that have been hand picked for effectivess at overcoming such despair, and could be listened to for the sole purpose of ridding a monotonous melody from
the old melon immediately.
Years ago, I learned that humming "The Girl From Ipanema" pretty much does the trick for this kind of thing, but I've used that one so much that sometimes that song gets stuck in my head.
With this CD of various songs and styles, I could pick something better, and "It's A Small World" would just vanish away like Jupiter on an overcast night.

||Fishbone for getting "It's a small world" stuck in my head. (althoug I'll admit, it's better than the "Eat quizno's subs" song that I had stuck in my head)
||better than the youngs ad "you shall have a fishy" song that one of my co workers would force into your head at the start of a 12 hour shift.
||You know what helps get annoying tunes out of your head? Drinking.
||Girl From Ipanema ... how does that one go? Can you just hum a few a bars...
||There is an advert over here at the moment (UK). It has a track which a few of my friends keep humming, it is one of the worst head sticky songs I have heard. It is quite good though. See (linky)...
