The Zeigarnik effect also gives us an idea of how to get a stuck songs out of your head: complete them. A lot of people do this intuitively. When a song is stuck in their heads, no matter how much they dislike it, they put the song on and listen to it from beginning to end. Research shows us there may be an easier way. If you can voluntarily play the end of the song in your head, you might be able to finally get it out of your brain.
