While strolling through weblogs I found this link to a recent LA Times article
on the subject.
"The first case of Stuck Tune Syndrome is lost to history. If ancient Romans had
'Parvus Orbis Est' (Latin for 'It's a Small World') chirping incessantly in
their heads, they were kind enough not to mention it."

Of course, it has been scientifically proven that the tune "Liliburlero" will drive out any offending tune stuck-in-endless-repeat-loop in a brain, and then will calmly leave of its own accord when the good deed is accomplished.
Verified in the kitchens of Pinewoods Dance Camp and the on the shores of the Monterey Bay, it's True, true, true.
