    Songs stuck in your head

    There's always some music running through my head - I was quite old before I realized that most people's brains don't provide a running soundtrack to life, hence the popularity of the iPod!

    But sometimes a song gets stuck there, whether I like that particular song or not!

    Right now, "Jar of Hearts" is stuck in my head, by Christina Perri. It's a pretty melody, plaintive, and not as angry as the lyrics would imply. What's stuck in yours?

    And please, do tell me whether or not your brain does the 'background music for life" thing, I'll be interested at how common it is.

    I always have songs in my head . . . and that "Jar of Hearts" song is great! I first heard it on So You Think You Can Dance.

    I have had Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" in my head for the last couple days.

    There's always background music in my head. Sometimes I wish I could turn it off, especially if it's a song I don't really care for.

    Riight now it's "wanted dead or alive" by bon jovi. Maybe it's reminding me that Deadliest Catch is on tonight, and that's their theme song.

    I also always have a song playing in my head. Even if I only know one line from the entire song.
    Unfortunately, right now the song the Thompson sisters sang on The Voice last week is stuck there, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. I was just thinking about coming here to post on that thread then I saw this one.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    I thought they did a bad job miking the sisters for that number - we basically heard the harmony part twice as strong as the melody, and I always wonder how different what we at home hear is from the studio audience and judges.

    Maroon 5 and Lady Antebellum, I will have to hunt that down! I like Maroon 5 and my niece loves Lady Antebellum.

    Driving to work one day I had a Farmers Insurance jingle stuck in my head that I'd heard on the radio. I had to start singing scales out loud to get rid of it! I'm sure other drivers thought I was crazy.

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    I've always been a huge Peter, Paul, and Mary fan and the song most frequently in my head is "A Soalin". I also love 50's instrumentals and often "Blue Tango" (my favorite all time) moves in and stays.

    Oh yes, I have the Life Soundtrack playing constantly! Always have.

    Right now, I have "No Rain" by Blind Melon stuck in my head.

    It's maddening. When I get a tune stuck in my head, I automatically start to whistle it. I get into heaps of trouble because everyone is so sick of my out of tune whistling....hee hee

    I once had an assistant who would do that, but he'd absentmindedly whistle opera - and it sounded completely dreadful! We took to throwing paperclips at him to break him of the habit!

    I heard this on the radio today, I've liked the song ever since it came out; but now it's stuck in my head!

    "Hold On" - Wilson Phillips (1990)

    Some day somebody's gonna want to make you turn around and say goodbye
    Till then baby are you gonna let them hold you down and make you cry
    Don't you know things can change, things can go your way
    If you hold on for one more day
    Things will go your way
    Hold on for one more day

    "She Works Hard For the Money... " has been running through my head.

    Rest in peace, Donna Summers.

    Death thought about it.

    Down by the Station ~~ a kid's song. Anyone remember this?

    Down by the station early in the morning
    See the little pufferbellies all in a row.
    See the station master turn the little handle
    Chug chug toot toot
    Off they go.


    Don't ask why that would be in my head this morning. I haven't a clue. Maybe I'm needing to hop on Amtrak and head to NC to see my bro????
