Somebody once told me when you put on headphones you chose to be entertained or educated. The choice is yours. This podcast by @justine is the outlier where you get both.
I often/pretty much always get songs stuck in my head while playing golf. Here are the serial offenders:
- On a beach - Richard Ashcroft
- Help on the way -Grateful Dead
- Cold Wind -Arcade Fire
- A mix by Kool DJ Red Alert that I lost years ago, but is stuck in my head.
- Through the wire- Kanye
These are not my favorite songs. Not even close. They don’t crack the top 500 of my favorite songs (actually Cold Wind does), but…somehow…when I tee it up, they pop up. I just cannot explain it.
This podcast opened my eyes to a few pieces of information about how our brain works and why we remember certain songs more than others. And it is safe to listen to with kids in the car.
(TIL: Ke$ha is not pronounced KEYsha. And also that Twinkle Twinkle, Bah Bah Black Sheep and ABC are the same song.)
