I made a mistake last night. I didn't feel like blogging anymore (and NO the boiled shrimp and corn on the cob I ate for breakfast had nothing to do with that decision), so I put O, Brother, Where Art Thou on the VCR and watched that movie for the umteenth time. I think that the movie is a hoot and I REALLY like the music.
But I went to bed with a song stuck in my head and it was still there when I woke up today. It's been going round and round all day. And it IS NOT my favorite piece of music in the film.
I thought that MAYBE, if I picked up one of my guitars and played the song, I could run it out of my head. But that just made things worse. It's stuck in my mind like a chicken bone in the throat now. I can't cough it up. And it's beginning to drive me crazy.
Remember the two little girls singing "On that Highway into Heaven" in the movie? If you don't, you are fortunate, because those two little shits have been worming my brain for about 16 conscious hours now, and I wish that they would go away.
"On that highway into heaven On that highway into heaven On that highway into heaven I'll be somewhere a-working for my lord.
There. I hope I wormed somebody else.
