Unintentional Musical Themes of My Life

leave a comment »

It seems like every time I get into a car of late a couple of songs play that I find weird. One, these songs have not been considered popular music for at least 20 years…which makes it pretty odd that I would continue to find them on the radio, especially since they’re on popular music stations. So, I’m taking it as some sort of cosmic sign; however, the song choice is leaving me wondering what the heck the universe is trying to tell me.

The first song is Alannah Myles quintessential 90’s hit “Black Velvet.” I’ve heard this song at least 10 times in the past week…odd choice universe.

Honestly, I’m familiar with the song (I’m familiar with a lot of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and further). Yet, I wonder if I’m supposed to be thinking about Elvis or if the thinly veiled sexual metaphor is supposed to be what I’m listening to…it’s really quite mind-boggling.

The second song is even more of an oldie. It’s “Take it on the Run” by REO Speedwagon. Again, another weird choice for the universe to be sending to me…I haven’t”heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another that you’ve been messing around.” One, I don’t have that many people who would tell me things about my other friends because we are all spread so far out that we don’t know. Two, I wouldn’t want people to gossip about me, so I wouldn’t about them. Yet, it’s a pretty wonderful song…that’s all I’m saying.

So, yeah…the universe is trying to tell me something. It figures that it would try to speak to me through music, one of the few things that could really get my attention. So, I’m trying to listen, but so far, I’m still coming up nil on the thing as a whole…maybe there’s a piece missing?
