I was driving home today and listening to the 80s station on the radio. It was playing Talking Heads’ “Once in a Lifetime” and my mind wandered to a preview I saw for a Nicholas Cage movie that featured that song, where he wakes to find his life radically altered in some way. That made me think how the old “Twilight Zone” series had more intriguing plots every week than 90% of current Hollywood movies. The next song was “Twilight Zone” by Golden Earring.
Hmm … I thought. (It had been a long day. “Hmm” was about the most coherent thought I could muster.) Then my mind wandered again to downloading Golden Earring’s “Radar Love” on Napster. For some reason, this made me think of someone uploading “What I Like About You” from me. The next song played was The Romantics’ “What I Like About You”.
That’s a little trippy, don’t you think? Maybe I should play the lottery tomorrow. Or pick the winner of Survivor. (That’d be really psychic since I don’t even know who’s playing.)
