For the last couple of months, the chorus of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” has been stuck in my head and won’t go away. It drives me NUTS. This endless loop of music running through my brain is called an earworm. Most of the population suffers from something like this and when it happens, you just want to get that song out of your head. But how? A recent study out of the University of Reading suggests that squashing an earworm may be as simple as chewing gum. Researchers found that for some people, the act of chewing gum interrupts the brain’s “inner speech” and can take the minds off that loop of music. It’s not foolproof—it doesn’t work for everybody—but at least it’s something you can try the next time you get an earworm. And because I mentioned “Take Me to Church,” it’s probably running in YOUR head right now. You’re welcome.
