Firirida has taken over our minds and even socialite Amber Ray is asking how to get over it. She asked her fans for a favor and they responded that they are also struggling with that song being ion repeat in their minds. She asked
“Who has a Ruracio or wedding nikam tudance Firirinda initoke kwa kichwa“
Science has a name for that condition. It’s called Earworms. Scientists says that some songs are catchier than others that’s why they are on “auto repeat” in your head.
For the auto repeat to happen, the earworms rely on brain networks that are involved in perception, emotion, memory, and spontaneous thought. They are typically triggered by actually hearing a song, when your happy, feeling nostalgic, or in a dreamy state of mind.
Here’s what you can do:
1. Since it’s triggered by boredom, listen to it
It sounds too simple to be true, but there’s a science-tested reason that simply listening to your earworm-generating tune from start to finish can dislodge it. It’s called the Zeigarnek effect, named for psychologist Bluma Zeigarnik, and suggests that the effect of interrupting an activity or thought process can actually make it more memorable than a completed task.
2. Replace your earworm with another song
Another method to get rid of an earworm is to try and replace it with another catchy song that hopefully won’t also get stuck.
Think about it we had jerusalema, then was followed by Sukari, so find another song.
3. Chew gum
A study from the University of Reading in the UK found that chewing gum seemed to interfere with the brain’s auditory processing centers, helping dislodge cyclical thoughts. According to the New York Daily News, the study’s co-author, Dr. Philip Beaman, likened the effect of gum-chewing to speaking inside your head, which can also affect your short-term memory and auditory processing.
