That was a "twilight" moment

Ok - we all know how songs can get stuck in our minds and just recycle over and over and over again. Usually, you can do something, anything to get it out.

Well, I've had a song stuck in my head for over 15 years. Not even the whole song. Just one line, the first line of the song. I don't know how the rest of it goes, nothing. I only hear (and sing) this one line. FOR 15 YEARS.

But the funny thing is, it's a really old song. You hardly ever hear it played. You'll notice I said "HARDLY".

So I'm starting one of my training classes the other day. I've got a group of 18 people, sitting around, ready to soak up my wisdom (ok, go with me on this, it's Monday!).

I start in with the introduction. You know, a little ice breaker. I'm in the middle of my story when all of a sudden I hear THAT song. And it's not in my head this time. It's playing over the intercom in the store.

Without even thinking I start singing the damned song. Suddenly I knew all the words, suddenly I was JUSTIFIED!! It's a real song, they DO play it.

Oh Shit!

I have Musak in my head.

Shoot me now!

I feel your pain.Try getting pipe tunes stuck in your head. People REALLY think you crazy when you start humming or whistling a bagpipe tune.

Hey, the llama song's a real song!

Did you ever see a llama,
kiss a llama on the llama?
Llama's llama tastes of llama
llama, llama, duck.

Animal House.

Thoughts cued as soon as I saw the lyrics on the link.
