← Earworms: Why songs get stuck in our heads

Not all my earworms are songs I don't like. Of course, if they're stuck long enough, I stop liking them.

I get words stuck in my head sometimes, too. Does anyone else? The first time I noticed it, about thirty years ago, the name "Lalique" kept popping into my head. It seems like it happened several times a day, for weeks.
