Stuck on repeat

Posted: November 14, 2008 at 6:53 am

I’ve recently noticed that I have a hard time letting go of tunes. I’ve gone to sleep and woken up playing the same song (and section) in my head. I’ll hear it in my dreams….when I shower…..all day long. I couldn’t figure out why it happens only at certain times with certain songs.

I finally figured it out.

If I don’t hear the song end - my internal jukebox wants to finish the stupid thing out. Over and over and over and over and over until I hear the song end or I fail to hear a different song end. The worst part were those FreeCreditReport.com jingles. I could never find the remote until halfway through the freaking commercial….and would have it stuck with me for hoursssssssssss on end. I’d rather be kicked in the nuts than suffer that pain.

The catalyst for this realization? I’ve been playing the same small section of one song in my head for the past 3 hours. Turns out - that “small section” starts exactly where I last paused winamp and ends at the end of the track.

Stupid brain.
