A Little Bit Like Whistling While You Work...And Play
A wise-ish wakeboarding buddy once said to me, while our pals were squabbling over which CD to play on the boat's souped-up stereo, that if I'm doing what I love, I'll definitely hear music in my head. True that! I've not noticed how my head automatically soundtrack my life until that day. And there's something "playing" - sometimes loud, sometimes silently - most of the time so I guess I must enjoy most of the things that I do day in and day out.
The title music from the 1970 film Bombay Talkie (also used recently by Wes Anderson on The Darjeeling Limited soundtrack) has been going round and round in my head for weeks. At work and at play. And it reminded me of Mathar, a tune recorded by The Dave Pike Set in the 60s, that soundtracked quite a period of my life in the 90s after it's been remixed by people by like Primal Scream and Richard Fearless.
I know my activities today will still be accompanied by the Bombay Talkie tune (it's a hard one to get rid off!). I hope your head will be soundtracking your day too because it means you're doing what you love and having a bloody good time!
