Title: What song did you wake up with today?
Post by: oldkid on March 23, 2016, 10:45:46 AM
Every morning I wake up with a song in my head.  Often it is a song I heard two days ago.  Not yesterday.  Not three days ago.  I know, it's weird.

I will randomly be posting songs I woke up with.  Just because.

Today's song:

From the first James Bond movie I saw.

I'll have to pay attention when I wake up tomorrow. Fun thread, oldkid!

Great, now you've got that song stuck in my head. :P

That was definitely one of my favorite Bond themes, despite not having seen the movie (or being a fan of Moore's era).

I wake up every morning to "Cantaloupe Island" by Grant Green & Donal Byrd. I don't know why. Last year, it was "Cast Your Fate to the Wind" by Vince Guaraldi. Once again, I don't know why.

Usually when I have a song that is constantly in my head, there is a noise that my brain equates to that song.  For instance, my current ringtone is slightly reminiscent of Dan Fogelberg's The Sand and the Foam.  At my wife's laundromat there is a noise that is constantly putting the Band Aid theme song from the 80s in her head.

It is a burden.

Every day I walk past the Xanadu Blu-Ray that's currently sitting on my TV stand. It makes me sing "Xan-a-doooooo!" in my head to the tune of "Voulez Vous". So I've had ABBA on the brain a lot.

I do not wake up to, but it constantly pops into my head, Let it Go. Ah the joys of having young children obsessing about a song. ...It's back.

I wake up every morning to "Cantaloupe Island" by Grant Green & Donal Byrd. I don't know why.

Have you listened to the Herbie Hancock version?

Yeah, and it's a little bit better, but Byrd's is just the one I have purchased.  8)

Well, I woke up in the very early morning, and I hope to get some more sleep, but the song I awoke to was:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoLBPGTxcOo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoLBPGTxcOo)

Probably inspired by the old timey country music I was falling asleep to in Tender Mercies.  (I often fall asleep to a movie.  Just tired.  Has nothing to do with the quality of the movie.)

Great choice, Sandy's subconscious!

For me, it's Lorde:

And your subconscious as well! My song came from the end of dream as I woke up, but I could so see me saying in another dream,

I'm kinda older than I was when I reveled without a care
So there


Maybe I'll dream your song next!

I'm sometimes wondering if the song I'm singing or listening to will be the one I wake up to next day.  But nothing prepared me for this morning's song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BZTASZKQv8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BZTASZKQv8)

I can't think of when the last time I heard this song was.

a few lines from an old hymn, on a loop. ???

Prone to wander Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, O take and seal it...

Boz Scaggs is a name I have not heard in a very very long time.

Particularly the version played at the end of the movie. It's tranquil. Gives me a sense of peace as I wake up. Kinda like a reverse of resting in peace. ;D

I love how you have movie soundtracks going through your head.  Rarely true for me.

It really isn't as impressive as it sounds. Most of the music I know comes from movies. And I'm not referring to just scores and orchestrations. Most of my knowledge of pop songs come from movies or some TV show, or most recently, movie trailers. I don't really delve into music as much as people my age who know many specific band names and singers. My favorite band is the rather mainstream Linkin Park, for example.

That's a nice song, by the way. I'm not much in the know of music to say anything else other than "It's a catchy song" or "It's a relaxing song." :P

No surprise I've got this stuck in my head.  I've been singing it off and on for a week.  Well, I've been singing the live version.

It's exactly what I wanted and needed to hear today.  :'( :)  It speaks to me with each line, so it's time for a new signature, but which to choose?

 Thank you, pixote.
