Need an opinion

I've noticed that when I walk barefooted on linoleum my feet make a sound like the rhythm of the Donovan song "They call me mellow yellow." It happens with no conscious effort on my part. What does this mean?

See if you can make them sound like Hurdy Gurdy Man, or just take some acid.

Edit: Take some MORE acid I mean.

I just did an experiment and walking down my corridor at works sounds like 'We will rock you' by Queen.

Uncanny.

Although I must admit I had to make a bit of an effort with the timing. My boss called me a wierdo.

Thus the "mellow yellow" part of the song. Bacterial infections are usually yellowish in color.
