Whenever I see anything, and I do mean anything, that may have an association with some piece of music, my brain, which appears to have been designed on the same principle as an iPod / iPhone with Genius built in, automatically finds a track that is appropriate and starts playing it in my head.
For example, whenever I watch the weather, I will get a wide variety of tunes, depending on the prevailing forecast, from “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”, through “Windy City” from Calamity Jane to “Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.” (I live in England so I don’t need songs about the sun.)
Due for release today is a movie that’s driving my poor little movie brain and my iPod brain mad together. It’s the very promising Noel Clarke’s latest.
And now, every time, and I do mean every time, I see the name of this movie written down, this starts playing in my head. (Crucial bit is about a minute in, if you’ve never heard this before.)
It’s driving me very quickly insane. Possibly in around four-three-two-one-seconds. (Go baby go baby go, don’t upset the rhythm… AAARRRGGGHHH!!!) Any helpful hints to deprogramme myself appreciated.
