The Song in My Head

Spank hop shuffle step, step shuffle spank stomp spank hop shuffle heel shuffle heel step stomp, spank hop shuffle heel, flap shuffle heel, step brush heel back heel ball change stomp.

Over and over in my head. Can't make it stop. I think everyone who reads this knows I take tap. And that's only one part of the tap routine. It's the most fun to say over and over in my head though.

I remember a long time ago someone told me the only way to get rid of a song in your head is to sing it all the way through. What kind of half brained idea is that? It only makes me practice it more. Never worked for me.

Speaking of songs...does anyone have a song on the radio right now that once it comes on you have to change it right away? Lately there has been this song that actually makes me angry. Most people who know me will tell you I'm not an angry person. In fact, I'm fairly tolerant, but I have a physical reaction to this song. Not only do I want to turn the radio off, I want to HIT it off. I get all tense whenever I hear those voices at the beginning.

I was driving to my sister's the other night and that song came on. I made myself listen to the whole thing because I never listen long enough to hear the DJ credit the song when it's over and I wanted to know who this band was that makes me so angry. So I did. I don't know if Blue October is the band name or the song name, but I can't stand that song.

And then there are songs that I don't know why I like, but whenever they come on, I have to listen. Confession: I never understood what the big deal was with the Dixie Chicks, never a big fan of them or country music in general, but when some of their songs come on, I usually have to listen to the whole thing. If someone can explain that one to me, please do.

I own a Dixie Chicks CD, how is that for a confession? I bought it with some gift money so I didn't feel too bad about buying it. It is a pretty good CD too. Anyway, I hardly ever listen to the radio any more and rely on Dan to relay music developments to me since his entire work day is practically spent in the car listening to XM radio. Funny thing is that he has confessed to he liking some of Justin Timberlake's new songs! HA- I can't get over that.

I must admit reading your words about hating a song so much I leaned on the edge of my chair "what, what song could it be? I hope it's not a song I like" The second I saw Blue October I screamed! I hate that song so much I hate even reading the name of the band! (btw it's the name of the band) Yeah they suckk so hard it is rediculous. Thank you for hating them.
