Francis Collins and Renée Fleming talk with Holden Thorp about music and the brain

Renée Fleming: No, but interestingly, when I’m in an opera, the earworms are never what I have learned in my own music. It’s always what someone else is singing. It’ll just be a brief phrase and I can’t get rid of it. I don’t know if there’s science about earworms.

Francis Collins: Not enough for the amount of distress they cause.
