I believe pretty much everybody has that constantly running jukebox of music running through their minds. With some, it just happens to spill out into the unsuspecting worlds at odd times.
One night at work a few moons ago, I was talking with a coworker about all the songs that come to mind during the course of the night. I also tried to postulate whether what pops up has anything to do with what is usually going on around you at the time. That study has still so far been inconclusive, but that’s another post for another time. I decide to write down all of the songs that naturally came to mind during the course of the night. Some stayed with me during the whole night (those usually are the basis for songs of the moment) and some ended up being a bridge to another song. All…well most were written down and this is where this post comes in.
The set below represents what was playing in my head’s jukebox that night and could possibly give some clue to how my mind operates musically. While I am doubting that last part, maybe some light while be shed on something worthwhile. So with that, I present to you the remnants of that list of songs from memory. Not all of the tracks came from that night as at least one hadn’t existed then. I will give no excuses for the content, but I will say that this should not be taken as mix in the traditional sense. If anything, it’s an extension of how I make initially made tapes back in the day or playlists now, when I do. An experiment, if you will. One I hope you will enjoy or at least be amused by. Either way, let me know how you feel about it in the comments or by email, if you want. If you get to the end of the playlist and have enjoyed it, then maybe this little experiment will be far from over.
