You wake up in the morning and you have a song stuck in your head, what to do? New research suggests chew gum. You could be humming a tune anytime of the day, over and over again, and it’s driving you crazy, well, chew gum.

There is a technical term for a song or part of a song stuck in your head; it’s called ‘earworm’. It doesn’t have anything to do with a real worm, it's when a song gets stuck in your head for at least 10 seconds.

The new study found that chewing gum interferes with motor skills involved in speech, thus preventing musical memories from forming.

Does it work? I don't know, but I'm going to try it the next time I get a song stuck in my head.
