Ever find yourself riffing a song on the radio?
As a rule, when I hear music I a.) start writing scenes in my head, b.) sing with the song (knowing the lyrics optional) or c.) tune it out completely. However, last night I found myself replying to the end of Pat Benatar‘s immortal classic Love Is a Battlefield.
Here is a sample. Proof of my lack of wit in green:
We are strong, no one can tell us we’re wrong
Searching our hearts for so long,
Five minutes ain’t that long.
Both of us knowing
Love is a battlefield
Only if you’re doing it wrong.
This isn’t the first time I did this. With Golden Earing‘s Twilight Zone I started calling out “What time is it?” just before George Kooymans says “It’s 2 a.m.” That’s like, what, twenty or thirty times in the song? Drove Dad nuts.
(Actually three. Right at the start.)
What I’m wondering is, should I be concerned? Or should I wait until I start expecting answers back?
Of course… here I am asking this… on a blog no one reads… expecting an answer…
Maybe I have worse things to worry about.
