Songs will also constantly start playing in my head due to random things I see or hear. I don't even really need an ipod, because I have brain radio! It won't take more than a couple of words to set me off. For example, if you said "Joan of Arc was a pretty woman.", I would suddenly hear "Walking down the street, pretty woman, the kind I'd like to meet...". Although I would also be wondering why Joan of Arc's looks were of such importance to you, considering all the things she accomplished that you could have mentioned instead. But I digress.
So, the fact that I often use song titles and lyrics on my blog is not contrived, it's just that everything reminds me of a song. As someone who can't sing, can't rap, can't read music, and can only play the drums on a basic level, all I can really be is a fan, but music is still an important part of my life. I am not a music snob, I can appreciate anything that moves me in any way, no matter the genre. Although it does annoy me to no end when songs that I hate start playing on my brain radio, I guess I need to get a better DJ up in here!
I think my extreme love of music came from my dad, because some of my earliest memories of are of him playing his guitar and singing. He wasn't a professional, he was just a fan like me. One of the best things about music is that it can transport you to another place and time, and whenever I hear this song, I'm a kid again, sitting at my father's feet, hanging on every word he sang (even though at the time I really had no idea what the words meant ;).
