The Same Old Song

Have you ever had a song or music that keeps running through your mind? I do and this happens to me about five or six times a year and it will take a few days to wash it out of my cranial cavity. In the meantime it literally drives me to the point of insanity.

Sometimes it is a song that I really enjoyed and at other times it’s a song I couldn’t stand. I find that I have very little control over which songs will pop into my head. A good one or a bad one, I have no choice.

In either case it is extremely hard for me to concentrate on other things while I am hearing this music bouncing throughout my brain.

Occasionally, I’ll find that I am singing along or just humming the tune. Just as I do at Christmas Time when all the stores are playing carols as background music. Usually I can’t wait to get out of those stores and back to a semblance of sanity.

I was sitting on the throne this morning when from out of nowhere I start humming Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana”. First the music enters my mind, and then the lyrics begin to come into my head. All day I’ve been hearing “Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl, with yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there.”

I was not particularly fond of this song and I know no worldly reason why I can remember all the words. “His name was Rico, he wore a diamond, He was escorted to his chair, and he saw Lola dancing there.” ……” they fell in love.”…. “At the Copa, Copacabana”.

This is truly maddening; hearing the same old song rattle through my brain. At this point the options are to 1) watch television or 2) play some tunes on the stereo. So I opted to listen to Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”.

What have I done? Now I hearing and singing along with Pink Floyd… “We don’t need no education. We don’t need no thought control. No dark sarcasm in the classroom. Teacher, leave those kids alone. Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone! All in all it’s just another brick in the wall. All in all you’re just another brick in the wall.”

At least it’s a song that I enjoyed hearing.
