I was trying to think of things I could write about today, like, the crazy dreams I’ve been having (Ex: my throat was super sore from being sick and it made it into my dream that this meant I was turning into an assassin) Or the fact that I wasn’t able to walk to the train stop this morning due to icky weather conditions. But, instead, I decide to write about the thing that is stuck in my head: “Some Nights” by Fun. Seriously, EVERY. MORNING. And it’s always the end of the bridge when they layer “oh come on . . . oh come on . . . oh come on . . . OH COME ON!!!!!” and in my head this last one goes on forever because that’s how I sing it in the car. Oddly enough, I don’t hate this song, which I should, because it’s been stuck there for at least a couple months. Instead, I get happy. It doesn’t necessarily motivate me or anything, but I do just get a moment’s rush as I hear the drums slam in again. I am such a sucker for that moment in a song when it goes acapella and then the instruments come in again to drive to the end. Every time. Any song. It’s always awesome.
Also, does it say something about me, or anyone, what songs get stuck in their head? My boyfriend’s go-to song stuck in his head is “Come On Eileen.” After 6 months of that it is damn annoying. I mean, it’s so fun! They have overalls, and say things like “tulu-rei-aye” or however you spell it. Did you know they’re a band again? Here’s the song if you don’t know it:
For my boyfriend, Matt, this brings him back to hanging out with his best friends from college. One of the girls in the group put together a video/slide show of them hanging out at a cabin the one summer and had “Come on Eileen” as part of the soundtrack. He loves those guys so much – they have a dream of living in a commune together with a restaurant and a sustainable garden = life time friends.
Another friend of mine has had “Africa” by Toto stuck in his head for what he says has been like, 6 years. Don’t know why though:
Other than this song being EPIC. Seriously, I want Matt to bless some rains for me, anywhere. (Side note: if he knew that he’d do it because he’s awesome and wonderful:) )
If anyone would be willing to post a comment, I’d love to know what has been stuck in your head, and if you love it or hate it.
Also, I walked a total of 5.3 miles yesterday and did a full grocery run at Aldi that came to only $78.00 – I freakin’ love Aldi, you have NO IDEA. Those were the most exciting things about my day yesterday, I’m so . . . cool . . .
