Sounds like you need to do a mental dump of those earworms, Miranda. I
had the complete verses of "It's Alright Ma (I'm only bleedin')"
stored in my memory until I found it took up too much room on my
mental hard drive.
While you're at it, download a cosmic " C:\" cleaner into your brain

and the "Ideological Construct Cookies" as well the "Hidden Files Of
Then defrag the whole construct.

I have a very long thread of song in my mind that randomly plays. I
can leave it on auto play or give it commands and say things like
'let's hear Dylan'. This is like being at quartzite az and saying
'let me see sand.' And of course I can at will zero in on one song or
a suit of songs.
Believe it ir not, and I realize you will not feel the rapt attention
I bring to every of my facinating machination-- but none the less-- I
don't have more than five Dylan songs memorized sequentially and en
toto. However, I suspect I know a substantial heft of his songs
memorized but by fragments and sentences and a chorus from here,
verses from here.
Dylan writes these sentences that are so artistic and organic and
electric and mechanical that they are like beasts arriving by
inference with their own ecosystem. (The inference being: Here's this
beast. Therefore this terrain, this taxonomy of animals and flora
exist with this apportioning of stars flows and dangles. I
especially.carry around a sentence which I sing aloud, to cool effect
at odd moments for like a week or two though most of what I refer to
by this post is intercranial. A recent room trembling example is "I
was lyin' down in the weeds without any oxygen." Well, see, it's
already by itself a little opera. That's rock n' roll. It's
transactional. It's transformational.
Of my own songs it's odd, too. There are 100 plus. I know sixty of
these by heart, mostly having learned them as I wrote. Try as I
might, I can't learn these other forty, even tough I love them about
the same as those already learned.
So these bits of music aren't oldies only. Steve Earle's City of
Immigrants has made my dna like endless roc'n'roll om strand.
SO? SO? SO?
So tell me. I didn't know till recently that these things aren't
universal. What do you have in
there? <R>- Hide quoted text -
