You know when there’s some tune going on in the back of your head, you can heart it – sorta, and it just goes over and over, the song is ‘stuck in your head’? But do you know when it’s just a lyricless tune, when it’s just a melody, and you can’t make out which song it is? And do you know how you can’t just get over it, you’d have to auto-replay the song in your head, hum to it, make up lyrics for it, until you pin down which song it is? I got that today.
All morning, I was like ‘mhm mhmmmhmm caaaaantryyyy’, ‘mhmmm mhmmmm caaantry’.
I kinda like when that happens, because I know that I’ll figure out which song it is, and when I get close to ‘solving the song’ I so know it, I can feel it, like I know that in a few seconds I’ll ‘ha! got it!’ and I just smile as I hum out the song.
This time it was The Smiths’ Ask Me.
Mhm mhmmmm turned out to be nature is a language, and
caaantryyy turned out to be can’t you read? I laughed. It was so close haha!
I was smiling, it was getting close, the tune was on repeat in my head, ‘mhhmm mhhmmm’ ‘caaantry’ mhhhm ‘mhhhm caantry’ ‘cant you read!’ ‘The smiths! HA!
