Monday Music: Tunes In My Head Right Now

 
 

Is this relatively old? Yeah, but a) it's awesome and b) you have to appreciate the irony of having it stuck in your head.

And you guys are gonna think I'm lame, but....


Whenever I hear this song, I picture driving through the countryside on a sunny day with the windows wide open, radio blaring, singing at the top of my lungs with my girlfriends* and I really can't fault any song that makes it that much better to feel the wind on your cheeks.

What do you have stuck in your head? Bonus points if you share a link with all of us!

*My boyfriend hates this song and turns off the radio when it gets to the chorus, so I don't picture an adorable couple-- well, I often do, but I have to picture some other, more whimsical dude and then that just gets awkward.

** P.S. I'm still not sure if knowing who Mr. Mister is ruins the song or makes it 30 jillion times better. Thoughts?

I actually have "Hey Soul Sista" on my photography website! i absolutely think it's a great driving song and it totally cheers me up!

I also like "Hey Soul Sister", and in fact, I DID listen to it on the radio while driving through the countryside between Auckland and Wellington on a beautiful sunny day =).

The other song will always remind me of the one and only time I decided to try clubbing. It turned out to be an incredibly boring and disappointing experience =(.

I love Hey Soul Sister, too :D But these days my guilty pleasure is 3oh!3's new album :$

Throwing in my unabashed love for "Hey Soul Sister"as well. Except for the lyric "my untrimmed chest" -- not because I think body hair is gross but because it's such a weird-ass, TMI lyric.

I love Hey Soul Sister... its so dang catchy! I always wondered who Mr.Mister was until now... :)

Oh! I love "Hey Soul Sister"! And I'm certain that being old enough to remember Mr. Mister makes it much better. Right now my somewhat embarrassing obsession is the music videos Felicia Day is releasing for her internet series "The Guild." And this is the one I'm waiting breathlessly for when it hits iTunes tomorrow *blush*

Those are two I love lately. My boyfriend keeps getting Venga Bus by the Venga Boys stuck in his head lately. He then gets it stuck in my head for me. I won't torture you and link that one, but I definitely want my extra points now. :D
