I have the song, “Holly Jolly Christmas” stuck in my head all year long. I will just start whistling it at random times and it happens almost every day. If a song is stuck in your craw, it could be hurting your sleep patterns.
Scientists at Baylor played catchy songs for people before bed, and then scanned their brains while they slept. The songs they used were “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift . . . “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen . . . and “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey.
And they found that when you go to bed with a song in your head, your brain KEEPS getting triggered by it, even while you sleep. So the quality of your sleep suffers.
If you’re someone who gets songs stuck in your head a lot, they say you might NOT want to listen to music late at night anymore. Or at least not right before bed.
