vs. the Earworm.

This reminds me of the apocryphal multi-billion dollar program launch by the United States to perfect a pen that would work in zero G.  The Russians just used pencils.

If you are bugged by an earworm (an annoying song you can’t get out of your head), just listen to another catchy song you like.  Problem solved.

Extremely cool!
