Most of my song addictions come quite inconveniently on the radio whilst I’m driving. Inconvenient because I get excited, occasionally want to applaud, ring the radio station to thank them, write down the song details etc- all not too easy to do with your hands on the wheel. Nonetheless, driving affords me time to listen to all sorts of things I wouldn’t otherwise, I’m a captive audience for at least 2 hours a day.
The latest song that has stuck from the first listen is Tame Impala’s ‘Elephant’ It’s a bit of a psychedelic rock number and the lead singer sounds like John Lennon. One lyric line in particular plays on repeat- ‘He pulled the mirrors off his cadillac, because he doesn’t like it looking like he’s looking back’ The songwriter in me, totally did a happy dance upon hearing that one. Excellent!
