How to Get a Song Out of Your Head

Written by Paul Steinbrueck

Ever had a song stuck in your head?

We all have.

Sometimes it can be really annoying, but it’s not always bad. Consider:

Brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. -Philippians 4:8

This morning I’ve had Lauren Daigle’s song, “You Say” stuck in my head. Here’s the first verse and chorus.

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe

(You can listen to the song here on YouTube.)

This is exactly what I WANT to be telling myself throughout the day!

How to Get a Song Out of Your Head

But if you’ve got a song stuck in your head that’s not true, noble, or right, there is a simple solution that works for me 99% of the time.

Listen to other music.

Usually, songs that get stuck in our heads are one of the last few songs we’ve heard, so replace the last few songs you’ve heard with some new songs.

How to Get Good Songs Stuck In Your Head

Listening to Christian music is one of the ways we can help “renew our minds” and keep us focused on the truth of God’s word.

In December, OurChurch.Com announced a new partnership with The JoyFM. Through this partnership, anyone with a custom designed website built by OCC or a DIY website built with our WP-EZ Website Builder can get the JoyFM music player added to their website at no cost. Just request the player through our helpdesk, and we’ll add it for you.

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right… think about such things. -Philippians 4:8
