Back when I was about fifteen, I was verbally and sexually harassed on the school bus on a daily basis. Mostly I'm over this now, but one thing is getting to me right at the moment. The boy who used to harass me most used to lean over and sing "Don't You Want Me" in my ear - the bus was too small and usually too crowded for me to simply move to another seat. No offence meant to any fans, but I hated this song even before he started that. To this day I sometimes I get the song stuck in my head again, and it's irritating me out of my mind. Anyone got any recommended ways of getting it out?

I'm sorry this is going on for you, mizchastain, it sounds distressing.
A couple of things that might help - listening to the song all the way through once might get it out of your head (it works sometimes for me), although of course you may not want to do that. Also you might try putting other music on (the catchier the better, so it can replace the other song), or listening to something like a radio programme - anything that distracts your brain enough to stop the song going round in your head.
Hope you're feeling better soon.
