Why when there is another song playing, is it harder to hum or sing a different one?

I was wondering about this.

    Because your brain is listening to the song playing and hearing those chord progressions. Your brain is trying to process that song so it is hard to sing another one. Often when one tries to sing another song while a song is playing it is out of tune and in the wrong rhythm. It is the same reason it is hard to sing harmonies unless you can really hear them because your brain is busy processing the melody.
