I have a habit of singing songs that spew forth from my subconscious. I guess it's like the bible verse Luke 6:45. "The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks."

For instance. One day someone was being overbearing. Telling me things I didn't think they needed to tell me. A couple of minutes later I was singing Billy Joel, "It's My Life, Leave Me Alone." Theme song to Bosom Buddies.

I don't do it on purpose. I often sing a song, wonder where it came from, and then do some deep self-analyzing before I figure it out.

So, I'm totally concerned. Tonight, as I'm folding laundry, I'm singing the chorus to Jimmy Buffet, "Margaritaville."

Any psychoanalysis would be appreciated.


  1. I wouldn't be concerned about your little habit. I for one, am known for doing the same. I work in a tea room and I am known for breaking into song for no apparent reason. Oklahoma (from the musical), Barry Manilow's Coppacabana, and Amazing Grace. I wouldn't even consider these songs that I like, except for the last one. Who knows? It's a gift, I guess.

  2. when Jim gave tours at the boot and there were zealous tourists standing right next to him, he had to hold his tongue from singing "don't stand, don't stand, don't stand so close to me!"
