Web Spy: Unhear It

||

[There are over 100 million sites on the Internet. 100 million! You might think you know about all the important ones (CollegeCandy, Gmail, Google, TFLN…), but there are thousands of other sweet sites out there (like ReQall, Regretsy, and Clicker) and more showing up every day! We get it – it’s not easy or fun sifting through the crap and porn to find those gems, so we’re gonna bring the gems to you. Just sit back, kick up those feet and allow us to introduce you to the diamonds in the internet rough.]

Don’t you hate it when you have a song stuck in your head, and no matter what you do, you just can’t stop singing it….even in your sleep?

And why is it that the songs that get stuck are always the most annoying. songs. ever? (I’m talking to you, Justin Bieber and Ke$ha).

Well, getting that song out of your head is easy now thanks to Unhear It.  The site helps you “unhear” the song that’s stuck in your head by having you listen to a randomly chosen, “equally catchy” song instead.  And if you don’t like the song it chooses for you, you can simply refresh the page to hear a new song.

Done and dunzo.

But while the whole idea behind Unhear It is pretty awesome, it does have some potential downfalls.  Like the fact that some of the songs it comes with are just as annoying (if not more so) than the song you were trying to forget.  Some examples: “The Macarena,” or those “Crazy Frog” songs. Yes, for real.

There’s definitely no doubt that Unhear It works – but maybe it works a little too well.   Sure, it managed to rid “Can’t Be Tamed” from my head, but the solution for it was Aqua’s “Barbie Girl”… is that really much better? (Editor’s Note: Tough call….) And “Never Gonna Give You Up” has come up on more than one occasion (Yes, I was actually RickRolled by a website).  But at least Unhear It recognizes these shortcomings, and acknowledge the fact that all they’re doing “is making you forget your old song by replacing it with another one… sorry.”

And if that’s their objective, they’re doing it well.
