riff in my head

I dreamt that I got a chance to hear again a song I really liked from my late teenage years, by one of those bands who made, you know, a minor hit then an album and then they didn't really do much else, and I heard this song and it was a kind of mid-paced rocker, and I thought, god I never thought I was the kind of person to really like that sort of thing but apparently I am.
That's bad enough but I still have the song in my head now, and unlike when Keith Richards dreamt up Satisfaction, it's really, really horrible and I can't get rid of it. Mind you, Keith didn't really appreciate the value of Satisfaction at first. Mind you, I can't write music so there's no way I could record it or do anything with it even if I thought it was rad.


The song as it is playing in my head includes an audience clapping along.

I still like all the same stuff I liked 1963-1983, and hardly anything since. Listening this week to old 'Shakey' Young and noticing he clearly loved the Everly Bros. and while knowing every Lou Reed lyric, I can confess easily that I am a closet BeeGees fan too. there is no 'good type' of music, just good stuff, and the crap. Kylie is crap. total crap.
