During my day job, we are not allowed to listen to music while we work. As a result, because my brain is so used to listening to music all day, random songs pop into my head on a regular basis. Sometimes they are songs I just heard in my car on my drive to work. Sometimes they are songs on my ipod. On the worst occasions, however, some of the most God awful songs ever written get stuck in my head. I can't control it. It just happens and what makes it particularly awful is that usually I can only recall a part of the song so that is what plays in my head for what will seem like hours sometimes.

Yesterday was no exception. I was working on a printing job and all of a sudden the theme song to Baywatch got burned on my brain. FOR HOURS! It's not the worst theme song out there but it's not what I want in my head for an extended period of time either.

After work I went shopping for a few hours but it never left me. When I finally got home for the evening, I decided to look on itunes to see if it was available (I wasn't going to buy it, I was just curious). They did have it but not with the Hoff singing it. One thing lead to another and the next thing I know, I'm listening to David Hasselhoff sing Amazing Grace and O Holy Night. It was beyond horrible! I'm still shocked that my ears didn't start to bleed. There should be laws about things like this. If you aren't a good singer (or if you're marginally good but will never be great), don't desecrate beautiful songs and if you do, you should be jailed for years.
