At least there is one of them wandering around here. It makes its presence known by broadcasting the world’s worst earworm: the Mister Softee Ice Cream Truck Song.
That little tinkly tune goes into your ears, heads for your brain, winds its way around and then loses its way out. In other words, it won’t leave, and it plays itself again and again in a maddening loop.
Singing it out loud doesn’t help, and doing that simply makes the tune dig deeper into your brain. Singing another melody to yourself gives temporary relief, but once you stop singing the new song, the Mister Softee song comes back stronger than ever. Either that, or the latest song becomes a new earworm, and everything is as wrong as ever. In other words, don’t bother trying this remedy. You’ll drive yourself crazy.
Another option is to try to forget about the song by getting busy doing something that has nothing to do with ice cream, trucks, or music. Don’t bother. The jingle will continue to sing itself in your brain even while you are doing dishes, playing on the computer, or doing whatever task you can think of.
All things must end, and the Mister Softee song will eventually die in your brain – until the truck comes lilting by again.
