I always have at least one song playing in my head.
Just recently, I've realized that sometimes, this may be an effort by my subconscious mind to communicate something to me.
For instance, the other day as I was driving along in a daze, a rather obscure song "Lemon Tree" by Fool's Garden started playing in my head. Just as I obliviously sped past my exit, the lyrics reached the point
"I'm driving around in my car
I'm driving too fast
I'm driving too far..."
The day I found out that the man who (I thought) was the love of my life was getting married, Harry Connick Jr had been in my head singing "But Not For Me"
When my sister called to tell me she was expecting her first child, the instant the phone rang my mental radio tuned to the John Lennon lullaby "Beautiful Boy."
And as I sat in my Doctor's office as he told me I needed exploratory surgery because they couldn't figure out what's wrong with me, I heard Matchbox 20 singing "I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell"
So, have you ever heard a song, mentally or not, at a particularly opportune moment?
If your life had a soundtrack, what would the theme song be?
