They call it Earworm, We call it LSS

And I can't get it out of my head... It's annoying when I get a song I don't really like stuck in my head. My bro has been playing several songs on repeat for several days now. Yes lemme whine for a bit. Just so you know, LSS = Last Song Syndrome, is a term I just discovered that's very common here but not anywhere else. In the UK apparently it is called an earworm. Or if you want, you can use the slang term "sticky song". Apparently if you hear a song long enough and over and over it will keep playing in your head on repeat too. I can't get David Archuleta's songs out of my head. I haven't had an LSS for quite a while, usually I get what I call "Song Pop Ups of the Day" in my head instead of songs on repeat. Got any song/situation that came to mind while reading this? Does it trouble you or do you often get it?

My son just commented to me today that I always sing the same stupid song lol. I am pretty tired right now so off the top of my head I cannot think what it was that I was singing. When I think of it I will have to come back to this post and tell you. Anyway this particular song I've had stuck in my head since I was a teenager. I don't know why but it always pops in my head. Keep in mind that I am 32 so this has been stuck in my head for a very long time!

That's a lot of songs you got there. I always plan on buying an iPod but never get to buy any when I have the money. Something else always gets my money. Good thing you have an iPod handy. I use my computer to listen to songs when I don't have it on my phone.
