What It Means When You Get A Song Stuck In Your Head

Like a never ending loop...

When a song gets stuck in your head, it can feel like a never ending loop and often it's like a broken record because you usually only replay a certain portion of a song in your head. That portion of the song continues to play and play in your head until you know it by heart, and then it replays some more.

For some this can become really tiresome if it's a song you're not all the found of, while for others it's just strange. So why does it happen?

A message from above...

Many - including myself - are under the belief that when a song gets stuck in your head, ESPECIALLY a specific portion of the song, it has more meaning then just a song being stuck in your head. You might notice this especially if you haven't listened to the particular song in years, yet it's still there stuck in your head.

For an example, I recently found a certain verse of a Jason Mraz song stuck in my head. It's a verse from the song "I'm Yours". The part of the verse stuck in my head was:

"we're just one big family... and it's our right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved... so I won't hesitate, no more, no more... I cannot wait, I'm sure... There's no need to complicate.. our time is short.. this is our fate.. I'm yours...."

These messages are often said to be sent to you from spirit guides or other beings that are trying to geta message to you. The gift of music is often said to be a great way to communicate, especially if you're not listening or you're unable to listen another way.

Deciphering the message...

So now that you know you're being sent a message, or being communicated with, the only way to get that song out of your head, or to at least come to an understanding as to why it's stuck in your head - is to examine the part of the song that is stuck in your head. This is usually a pretty personal thing for each person, as the message and the situation varies. Sometimes it will be obvious what the message is, while other times it's more subtle and you might not know what the message is telling you yet. Though in those cases, when the situations comes to life, you'll understand almost instantly.

Let's take the above song verse that I used as an example, to see it makes more sense...

"we're just one big family... and it's our right to be loved, loved, loved, loved, loved... so I won't hesitate, no more, no more... I cannot wait, I'm sure... There's no need to complicate.. our time is short.. this is our fate.. I'm yours...."

This particular song lyric got stuck in my head the day after I was sent home in early labor with my second son. We had the complication of him being breech and it had been trying and tiring for me to deal with. I wanted him out so I could meet him, but I also didn't want anything to be wrong with him. So when the song got stuck in my head, I looked up the lyrics and it hit me what the message was.

You could say my guides, or my baby's spirit were telling me this, "The baby is on the way, so stop worrying so much. Life is to short to stress so much and your baby will be out sooner than you think. So don't complicate matters."

Simple enough right? Well, the song was a great comfort to me at the time and was a lot easier to decipher than other song messages that have been stuck in my head. Just remember, that the message isn't always so clear to see. The idea is just to pay attention and not brush it aside. You never know when you might be being sent an important message.

Listen to the lyrics stuck in your head, think about the part that's been stuck in your head the most and see if you can find meaning from it. If you can't, just keep your eye open, so that when the situation nears, you'll know what you were supposed to know.

Interesting. I often have a song or two rattling around in my brain. Right now a country/western song -- you and me baby are stuck like glue . . .

I'll have to ponder that one.

I agree - interesting point of view...I have had a song stuck in my brain for days and was wondering why in the world it was there, but for the love of me I can't remember what song it was now! What is that all about! Maybe it will come back and I can test out your theory! Very thought provoking! Voted up and interesting!

Sally...I'd be interested to see how yours turns out!

I too, am suffering from that! Whenever I think or read about brass instruments, every now and then the jingle from the commercial for Grand Champions (which is a toy collection of horses) comes up! I can hear the lyrics now: "Grand champions - the most beautiful horses in the world!"
