Like most people, I get songs stuck in my head. Sometimes they are there and gone before i really think about them, sometimes i hum them to myself all morning, and sometimes, they stick around for days. Those are the annoying ones. Can anyone relate?
Last week i ran sound for a local production of “Godspell” at Boardman Highschool. The songs from that production (which i heard 4 times in 4 nights) have been bouncing around in my head ever since. The same thing happend when i ran sound for “Chicago” last winter. So, as the songs of Godspell were running through my head, another song suddenly jumped in and took over. Totally. Godspell = gone. Being that the songs are often subconscious, it took me awhile to realize what was going on. But, when i did, i realized that this wasn’t the first time i’ve thought about that song. The more i thought about it, the more i realized that the same song has been in and out of my head for a long time. As i continued to think about it, i realized that i haven’t heard the song since i was a kid…a very young kid.
Suddenly an idea dawned on me. Recently youtube went moble…which means that i can pull youtube videos up on my phone. So there, in the middle of the parking lot at a local car dealership, i did a youtube search and found the song. I thought i’d post it here, and share with all of you the song that’s been running through my brain for the last 25 years.
