Ingredients In An Earworm

Very Interesting About Why Songs Become Earworms

I will have to study this and bring it in to my writing.

They Say the ingredients to make an EarWorm Are:

  1. Receptiveness (how you feel about it)
  2. Predictability
  3. Surprise [But if you like it to be Predictable, isn’t Surprise the opposite?]
  4. Melodic Potency (the Hook)
  5. Rhythmic repetition

Yes, the same rhythm pounding into you head over, and over, and over does become hypnotic. We do get familiar with it, and most people like things they are familiar with.
