This hasn’t happened to me in a long time, but for the last two days the only song I’ve wanted to hear has been Cher’s Heart of Stone. I’ve listened to it over and over again on my drive to and from work. From past experience, I know that I will soon tire of it and this brief madness will be over (especially since I will get my audiobook tomorrow).
But I remember that this used to happen to me a lot in high school, music being better then and all. Van Halen’s Drop Dead Legs and the Eagles’ Hotel California were two I recall having to be immersed in for a time. During my love affair with the latter song, I gushed to my mom, “Don’t you just love Hotel California?” and she replied, “Julie, no one likes Hotel California.” I think she was a bit tired of hearing it played in my room twelve times back to back, but I believed her for a while, and thought I was the only one who could appreciate the awesomeness.
