Songs in your head

Do you ever wake up with a song in your head for absolutely no reason at all?

I do - fairly often. It's weird.I woke up thinking of this one!

This isn't a song I particularly like, I had to look it up and I haven't heard it for donkey's years. It's strange how the mind works.

This mainly happens to me if I'm cycling or running and I have forgotten my headphones. My brain picks a random snippet of a random song and plays it on repeat in my head while I exercise (the last one I can remember was the opening refrain to Heaven 17's "Fascist Groove Thang")

Mad isn't it? I often wake up with songs in my head I've not heard in years. Must be from dreams. I also have tunes in my head I've never heard at all...wish I could record them somehow. I've currently got the song "More Than a Number in my Little Red Book" by Mao Tse Tung...or was it the Drifters?...in my head...prompted merely by talking at work about dating...

I've noticed that simply driving past somewhere I haven't been past in decades will trigger a song. I found myself remembering "Kiss from a Rose by Seal" triggered by driving past the Mitre near Fairfield (Figure that one out)

Absolutely desperately worst one was the chorus from "I am the one and only" by Cheesy Hawkes, which kept looping in my head while I was winching myself up this long not-that-steep Scottish country lane on me bike, at the same tempo as the cranks were turning round (ie not that fast). The hill went on for ages, the song went on for ages, so the pain went on for ages.

I don't like that song, still don't, so dunno why it popped in my ears. Whenever I hear it now, though, it reminds me of that hill.

I had an old workmate that used to change the words of random songs that came on the radio - and make them filthy.

As soon as I hear the song again, I only hear the filthy version!

This is the wrong time of day to be reading this, pretty sure one of the above will be in my head when I go to bed now, could be a long night.
