How many times you have suffered from this: a song or jingle of a TV ad or serial got stuck in your head and it just won’t leave, no matter what you do?
Welcome to the Mind Concert where a live performance of either your favorite band or singer is taking place inside your head. No matter what you are doing, track after track just keep on playing as the band or singer never gets exhausted. If that particular band or singer is your favorite then you feel relax and enjoy the performance.
But if they are not your favorite or in worst case scenario, its the jingle of a toothpaste or washing powder TV ad you watched last night by mistake, then you even can’t scratch your head as it will just keep repeating itself in your mind which makes you swear not to buy that product to which that mind killing jingle belongs to.
This concept of Mind Concert popped up while I was having a conversation with my friend. We have a favorite band by the name of Vital Signs whose songs are memorized to us. So how to best enjoy the songs we love? Simply by imaging in our heads that they performing live in a grand arena for only me.
The best part is, it is absolutely free and you can enjoy it anytime, anywhere. All you have to do is to close your eyes, place yourself wherever you want to and cue the band to start playing.
And FYI, if an awful jingle or song is not leaving your mind at any cost, then you have to actually listen it once to get rid of it. I have tried this several time and it worked.
Or if you are not comfortable with it, then simply chew a gum. Yes, as according to a research, this might help. Click here to read more about it.
P.S Check this real live concert video below. It features Queen performing at Live Aid in Wembley Stadium, London. The reaction by the crowd of 70,000+ is self explanatory. This performance is regarded as the greatest live gig of all time. Enjoy!!
