I think most people are familiar wth this phenomenon of random songs playing in your head, often when you wake up (no I'm not talking about a
radio alarm clock). It's not music that you hear somewhere and then gets stuck in your head, it really seems to come out of nowhere.

In my case it's mostly old(er) pop songs so about a month ago I started writing them down whenever possible. Sometimes they are gone too fast
and I don't always have an option of writing them down,. but here are a few I caught. (I usually know some of the words and then use that to find
the actual song)

Betty Everett - The Shoop Shoop Song.
Rene Klijn - Mr Blue.
Gloria Estefan - Conga.
Dire Straits - Walk of Life.
Fleetwood Mac - Don't stop.
KC & the Sunshine band - Give it up.
Steely Dan - Rikki don't lose that number.

and today:
Joe dassin - Les Champs Élysées.


so, what's playing in YOUR head ? All Ears

I get a song that I think you posted a link to once...

"Just stick some gears on it, and call it steampunk..."

Very Happy

I have had a couple of very specific song that pop into my head at specific times of day. It's easing off now, but especially these two come back pretty often still:

* After I wake up and rise to step into the shower, Graham Coxon's "All Over Me" starts playing in my head.

* At work, when I've eaten lunch in the restaurant and rise to go put away my tray and dishes, I hear the beginning of Devo's "Praying Hands".

Apart from those, I have a radio going on in my head many times a day. I'm happy that I can listen to music in headphones while I work, that way I can chase away annoying things that get stuck with other music.

I watched beverly Hills Cop again the other night and I have that bloody riff from Axel F going round in my head all the bloody time now.

Last week the choir I'm with did three concerts and some heavy rehearsing, so I'm still buzzing from that. We have a collaboration with the composer/organist Knut Anders Vestad, who's taken several traditional tunes, both religious and secular, and turned them into a mass with the medieval liturgic Latin texts. Vey nice, except for my problems in amplifying the pump organ - THAT was a nightmare, let me tell ya! Anyway, some lovely Swedish folk tunes still buzzing round my brain.

Songs get parodied in my head with random lyrics. Such as Depeche Mode's "Strangelove":

Strangled
Strangled and mangled
Strangled
That's how I tangled
Strangled
Strangled, mangled and mean
I'm a sex machine
I will give you to
'Cause that's what I mean
And a boogie boog it

Or it'll be something from my own works, mangled in my head:

What mogivets you
Beyond a feezle fet
As you read the news
With Boba Fet
Do you wok for love
And if you find it
Will it beezle bup

I know. I'm warped. banana

I haven't recorded anything since late last year but I play my synths quite often, just noodling around. I've been noodling more than usual lately, since I got my Microbrute a couple of months ago. Its unique sounds have been taking me to new places.

One very simple theme keeps coming back. It's too simple and basic (childish?) to do anything with. On the other hand, it won't go away. It haunts me. When my brain is otherwise quiet, it's back there softly playing.

I guess I have to give in and record the @#$% thing, especially since a second part has started playing in my head, along with a sort of bass line.

Dagnabbit.

P.S. I like audiodef's lyrics.
