The Song in My Head

The girl likes her music. And when we come across one of her favorites, we always have to go back and listen to it again.

"One More Time, Dad!" She hoots from the back seat.

I smile and I humor her. And we listen to Three is a Magic Number for the seventh time in a row.

But sometimes, that's just how music is, whether you are three or 37, and you have to go back and listen and listen and listen, until you exorcise the melodic imp in your head.

And so it has been for me with Radiohead. And yes, In Rainbows has been out since last year, And I've enjoyed it off and on since its release. But holy hell, as of late, it has possessed me. Track 9, Jigsaw Falling Into Place, in particular, but really, the entire album.

(does that word date me?)

And so I was going to play the clip that I can't get out of my head, with the hopes of sharing the misery, but then decided, what the hell, I'll just post the whole damn thing.

So, thanks to Youtube, Google, and the magic of the Internet, here is the video version of my current musical obsession.

  1. I liked them best when they were still called Joy Division. The New Order years were pretty good too.

  4. Every time Inog thumps someone hard, I think of the chorus in Karma Police:

    "This is what you get when you mess with us . . ."
