I‘m sure we’ve all had a song in our head at some time or another (although not to the extent that it’s taken control of you… I hope). It’s an experience that is part of a world with radios, iPods, MP3 players and cheesy pop songs. And one thing that comes alongside this is coping strategies to get you through a day when the first thing you hear is Barbie Girl or an S-Club 7 song.1 A good friend of mine once provided me with such an strategy, namely to sing Michael Jackson’s Beat it whenever I got an annoying song stuck in my head… and I must say it works like a treat! Good old MJ!
- If you have never heard Aqua’s Barbie Girl or an S-Club 7 song (Reach for the Stars for example) DO NOT go on Youtube right now and listen to them. Got it? Don’t do it.
