having a song stuck in your head actually means you’re smart

I’m being stalked by a song.
Is this the sort of thing that happens to other people, or is it just me? I’m being haunted, followed, sought out by this song… which I haven’t heard in years, mind, and all of a sudden BAM! It’s playing in Target, on my friend’s car stereos, in the grocery store, on the television, on the radio… even my iTunes is obsessed with it and insists on including it in every random play list. Not that I mind. I like the song.
But when you’re “signs and wonders” me, and you don’t necessarily believe in coincidence, and the song in question holds some emotional significance in your past, a song-stalking episode can make you crazy. “What does it mean,” you wonder, “is someone trying to tell me something?” WHY SONG, WHY? See? Crazy.
Good news is, at least I have a job 🙂
