Try these techniques.  Don't worry so much about the music.  Though you can try to replace them with another song, one that doesn't bother you so much.  In the end, the goal is to release any attachment to them, aka don't react to them, and they'll go away.  It's difficult usually, but it gets easier with time.

Yeah, I usually don't mind having a song stuck in my head. But whenever its just part of a song or parts of random songs jumbled together I just can't concentrate on anything.

Like Steven's technique with the triangle and Inari's blanket, I use a similar technique... I throw up a "stop sign" whenever unwanted thoughts creep in. I use this not only for meditation, but for everyday life. If you have negative thoughts creep in, try throwing up the stop sign in your mind and then pushing it out to the Universe. It works, it really does.
