Ever since the news of Michael Jackson’s death, my brain won’t stop humming his songs.
The news—and his music—are everywhere. I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, and I’m devouring the musical tributes on cable. But enough is enough already.

I know we’re not alone. So how about turning it into a publicity opportunity?

Pitch the story to morning drive-time deejays. It would make a fun call-in topic. I remember listening to several shows like this in which callers were encouraged to name the WORST song they’ve ever heard—you know, the one that just won’t stop playing inside their heads. These shows are hysterical. See How to Get onto Drive-Time Radio Shows.
What’s the worst song you’ve ever heard, the one that makes you crazy?
