A few days ago I woke from a deep sleep to loud music. I sat up and strained to hear: what music? Where was it coming from?
It was early, maybe 6 am, and I hadn’t had a good sleep. Some side effects to the vax maybe kept me awake half the night, or other things, life things, percolating through my brain, who knows.
But there was this song and it was prominent, significant and loud.
Then I recognized it
Lunatic Fringe, by Red Rider, with Tom Cochrane doing vocals.
So there I sat in bed, confused and perplexed, straining to hear the song.
Some of you know I have a hearing loss from a childhood illness, which is quite severe on one side, and moderate on the other. Without the aid of technology, I can usually sleep through backyard noise from partying neighbours with open windows no problem. Which is why I was stumped that morning.
If I can hear this song that prominently, it must be coming from close by.
After some checking out my surroundings, I discovered its source:
The song was playing inside my head. 😳
For two days now, I can’t seem to shut it off. Good thing I like the song, and know a bit about its history. 🎶🎵🎼🎸🎧🥁
This morning again, I’m still humming it. I’m going to put my headset on shortly and listen to it again.
Do you like this song?
