    You have a virus.

    You need to run some malware removal and try to find it and remove it.

    Close out all browsers. Music might be coming from a site you're still on but don't know you're on.

    Oh, there is an alternative:

    You could restore your PC with 'system resore'.

    Click your start/help/ and select system resore and it will walk you through the steps.

    This happened to me on December 26th of last year. The songs included "There went Santa Claus",
    "I was home for Christmas", and "I dreamt of a white Christmas".
    Drove me batty.

    Once this happened to me. I was using my computer and I was hearing non-stop Christmas music.

    I closed my browser and I could still hear the music.

    I closed word and I could still hear the music.

    I closed outlook and I could still hear the music.

    I muted the speakers and I could STILL hear the music.

    I could still hear the music after I turned off my computer.

    The Christmas music finally stopped only after I had left Starbucks.

    What OS? If it's Windoze ... meh ... can't help much, so many possibilities I'd need to see what you have in your services. If it's Linux ... I could help with just a little more info.
