Imagery Repetition

Apr 18, 2013

Did you ever get a melody “stuck in your head” where it seems to endlessly repeat itself over and over? I think we all have.

Such an effect can be called imagery repetition, involuntary musical imagery, sticky music, or more commonly, “earworms”, essentially referring to a musical “worm” that has crawled its way into our brain.

Descriptive, if a bit creepy!
