Now Over-playing In My Brain
On Saturday morning, while enjoying a gorgeous cup of coffee,
I saw that the movie "Coal Miner's Daughter" was on; a biographical movie about the life of country music legend Loretta Lynn.
Well, I'd heard the song "Coal Miner's Daughter," and I kinda remember Loretta Lynn from commercials back when I was a kid, but I didn't know much else about her.
It didn't take long before I was hooked, and watched most of the movie.
Sure, I like some OLD country music, but in general, I'm not a big country music fan.
Still, I am a big music nut, and the charming over-the-top honky tonk music in the movie made me want MORE!
That's what happens when I discover some music that I hadn't heard before. It flips some crazy switch in my brain, and I become OBSESSED.
I mean--don't even get me started about Brian Wilson from The Beach Boys. I went on a Beach Boys RAMPAGE for weeks recently.
But now I have a NEW LOVE: LORETTA LYNN!
And I couldn't get enough of her clear-as-a-bell voice, and homespun, almost hilarious subject matter...
and I LURV the way she sang those whip-snap songs with an angelic smile on her face...
And then my brain completely short-circuited.
THAT SONG HAS BEEN PLAYING ON A CONSTANT LOOP IN MY BRAIN ALL FREAKING WEEKEND
NO MATTER WHAT ELSE I'VE BEEN DOING
IT'S BEEN MAKING THE KIDS MENTAL
But sometimes, you just gotta belt it out.
(Thank you Loretta Lynn)
Whoo! That was boring.
