coming back

Sometimes I get really random songs stuck in my head that I haven’t heard in ages. Well, at least I think I haven’t heard them in a really long time. Perhaps I heard a snippet of the song earlier in the day without realising it, or without paying attention to it, and then quickly forgot about it, just to have it re-appear later.

Well, anyway, the latest song this has happened with is “Pure shores” by All Saints. I didn’t even remember that it was called that – had to use Google and Youtube to confirm that one.

I don’t know how, but the song just appeared in my head the other day, and I realised that I quite liked it. I feel like it was one of those songs that I didn’t like at the time of its release, when I was a kid. But now I think the song’s pretty good.

Another song that this situation kind of applies to is “Otherside” by Red Hot Chilli Peppers. This wasn’t a song that I didn’t like originally, but I’ve never been a massive RHCP fan either. Again, I don’t know how this song got in my head the other day, but now it just makes a re-appearance every so often.

Also had *NSYNC’s “Bye bye bye” make an appearance in my mental playlist the other week, but that’s more easily explained away because I’ve listened to that song at least a few times between it leaving the charts and the present day. Also, it was on a kind of recent-ish episode of “Glee” (by which I mean in the last season or two… not really sure… have lost track of where it’s up to…)
