"To get something/someone out of someone's head"

Meaning: to stop thinking about something or someone

Example 1
Hey Lina, I love that song you played for me yesterday! What is it called?
I can't get it out of my head! I really want to add it to my playlist!
Let me know as soon as you get this text! This is driving me crazy!

Example 2 
John, I had a great time with you last week at the party. I know we are friends, but... I think about you all the time.
I think I am falling in love with you. I can't get you out of my head. Do you feel the same way?
I am so embarrassed to ask, but I need to know. ?? xoxo, Anne.

Notice that in both text messages Anne is having a hard time not thinking about something or someone.
In the first example, she is asking her friend to let her know the name of A SONG she can't GET OUT OF HER HEAD! She can't stop playing the song in her head.
In the second example, she is letting her friend know she can't stop thinking about him... She can't GET HIM OUT OF HER HEAD because she is probably in love with him!
