... of my Tears" keeps playing in the back of my head, since I saw this image out the back window at work yesterday. What's that all about anyway? Why is it that sometimes we'll hear a song, and it just stays with us through the entire day and sometimes, for me, beyond. It can drive us crazy, especially if it's a melody we can't stand. Case in point: the other day at work I was listening to some tunes and a Janet Jackson song came up. I don't even like JJ, but that didn't stop me. It has a pretty strong bass track, and I guess I was humming it pretty good and a tappin' my foot. Someone nearby asked, "What are you doing?" I had to reply, "I don't know!" At least I didn't get up and start dancin'. Anyone know what the deal is with songs in our heads? There's got to be a reason. I'll end on this note. "The Tracks of my Tears" is one fine song by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. I could have done a lot worse. Now, I just hope I don't hear a Four Tops tune this morning!
Yeah, remember me telling you about that stupid George Harrison song 'Crackerbox Palace' last Saturday? Gotta be his worst, but it was stuck in my head for days. And now I've reopened that Pandora's box......ReplyDelete
I can give no scientific nor intelligent explanation to your question, but the whole concept of memory is fascinating. In fact, the human brain is fascinating! In addition, your phto is fascinating. "Water, water everywhere/nor not a drop to drink."ReplyDelete
I figured you be research or know the answer to this question. hahaha
Oh why not -- dance at work -- liven up the place -- barbaraReplyDelete
I can't think of a better song to sing on a Friday afternoon than, "Shake me, Wake me."ReplyDelete
hope the sun is out for you this morning...there are so many "sunshine" songs waiting to stick in your brain.ReplyDelete
Ah, this song is too old.. but anyway we heard it in the movie "platoon".ReplyDelete
I hope, that you have forgotten by now?
Since yesterday in my mind is the old song "all the lonely people"
Don't know the answer to why songs stick in our head - but your tears song coincides with a song that my granddaughter wanted me to listen to yesterday - Taylor Swift's Tears on My Guitar. She was dancing through the house, playing air guitar, singing her song.ReplyDelete
It was in the Big Chill too.ReplyDelete
There was a story on NPR earlier this week about a discovery that remembering music is linked to that part of the brain that controls motor function. Maybe that's why we want to get up and dance when we hear certain music or beats.ReplyDelete
I'm just glad that you've got something to keep you busy while at work - you know, singing along, taking photos, etc. :-)ReplyDelete
Try "Take This Job And Shove It" on Monday.
they're called ear worms. :)ReplyDelete
I love seeing the rain pouring outside the window. It makes me want to hear silly love songs and just enjoy it. It may be cheesy but I don't careReplyDelete
It does happen!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean - I'm listening to Leonard Cohen (for "real" as it is) at the moment. But it can't beat the live performance he gave here in August.ReplyDelete
I wish I knew...and then, I get little snippets of memories at the oddest of times...But: you're lucky because one time, when I was doing story times, I'm a Little Teapot got stuck in my head for eons...ReplyDelete
As soon as I hear that song I think of the Big Chill - love the movie & LOVE the soundtrack! And the Four Tops!ReplyDelete
Sometimes you need a good rain and a good cry.ReplyDelete
We had rain today and snow is in the forecast for Sunday.ReplyDelete
Happens to me all the time and I hate it. Lately it has been children's songs, not surprising since I take care of 3 grandchildren every day!ReplyDelete
You horrid person! Now this will be stuck in my head for who knows how long.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I think I have an enormous iPod in my head set on shuffle. One moment the Beatles, the next moment Verdi. It just goes on and on.
