    Old songs ever just invade your brain?

    Sometimes song from my younger days just pop into my head for no reason (well, maybe there's a reason for some of them ). Anybody else ever have that happen? Post one and discuss. This one visited my cranium this morning.

    SQUEEZE BOX
    The Who - 1976

    Mama's got a squeezebox
    She wears on her chest
    And when Daddy comes home
    He never gets no rest
    'Cause she's playing all night
    And the music's all right
    Mama's got a squeezebox
    Daddy never sleeps at night
    Well the kids don't eat
    And the dog can't sleep
    There's no escape from the music
    In the whole damn street
    'Cause she's playing all night
    And the music's all right
    Mama's got a squeezebox
    Daddy never sleeps at night
    She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out
    She's playing all night
    And the music's all-tight
    Mama's got a squeeze box
    Daddy never sleeps at night
    She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
    Come on and tease me like you do
    I'm so in love with you
    Mama's got a squeeze box
    Daddy never sleeps at night
    She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out
    'Cause she's playing all night
    And the music's all-right
    Mama's got a squeeze box
    Daddy never sleeps at night

    Penny Lane for any number of reasons or no reason at all, good feelings though.
    Ventura Highway by America, especially here at the forums when I read of Jamis.
    When the Levy Breaks, Led Zepplin, when storms are approaching these days.
    MANY more but I'll leave it at that, I've waisted quite enough of your time.

    I hate Jimmy Buffet's voice and music. Of course I hear it all the time down here and actually hum the crap when not paying attention.

    It's a world of laughter, a world of tears.
    It's a world of hope and a world of fears......

    I wish it was the old songs. My 11 yr old daughter likes to listen to Radio Disney in the car. Man the kids and their music today. To say that some of those songs are pretty bad would be putting it mildly. Now get off my lawn dagnabit!

    GIRL FROM IPANEMA
    (Vinicius DeMoraes / Norman Gimbel / Tom Jobim)


    Tall and tanned and young and lovely
    the girl from Ipanema goes walking
    and when she passes
    each man she passes
    goes Aaah!

    When she moves it's like a samba
    that swings so cool and sways so gently
    that when she passes
    each man she passes
    goes Aaah!

    Oh - but he watches so sadly
    How - can he tell her he loves her
    He - would just give his heart gladly

    But each day when she walks to the sea
    She looks straight ahead not at he

    Tall and tanned and young and lovely
    the girl from Ipanema goes walking
    and when she passes
    he smiles
    but she doesn't see
    no she doesn't see
    she just doesn't see...

    I wake up with a song in my head every single day. Not even necessarily a song I've heard the previous day or even recently. I think my dreams must have a soundtrack.

    This morning it was "Frank Sinatra" by Cake.

    Wow, I never heard an english-language version, I always wondered what it meant.
    Now I've got this in my head instead of K.C. and the Sunshine Band, much better, thanks!

    Glad I could help.

    I hear this song in my head on most of my rides, except when really "droping the hamer"(then it's Buckcherry's song, Crazy Bi***).

    The version sung by Nat King Cole is the best. I dig this song.
