You know how you get a song stuck in your head? Well, I decided to actually pay attention to what I sing to myself--the ultimate playlist. Over the course of a few days, I figured it'd reveal something hitherto unknown about my psychological makeup.
Yeah, not so much.
For the most part, I could trace exactly why I started singing a particular song, usually because it was associated with what I was thinking about in an obvious, literal way or, worse, because I'd just heard it.
Occasionally I surprised myself. Like when a friend called in need and I responded with the theme from Mighty Mouse:
Or when my friend Tim announced he was moving to LA and I found myself singing this Handel aria:
Frankly, I'm pleased to learn that I'd react so magnanimously, when in fact I'm both bummed he's leaving and jealous he's off on an adventure, the like of which I have not had in a while.
Hence this blog.
