The same way I can only recite the preamble to the Constitution if I'm singing it (thanks Schoolhouse Rock), there are certain names I default to singing instead of saying. These names are first and foremost associated with a particular melody in my mind--isn't it interesting how some things stick?
Jolene - Dolly Parton
Jessie (Jessie's girl) - Rick Springfield
Hey Mickey (You're so fine) - The Original Chin Chins
Diana - One Direction
Sara (Smile) - Hall & Oates
Maria - Stephen Sondheim, West Side Story
You see what I mean? Do you do this, too? I'm just grateful that my name isn't linked to one of these famous songs, because I wouldn't want people singing in my face when they learn my name...heh heh. It's amazing what we remember. Now, if only my finance class material stuck so easily. Oh well, we can't have it all. ;)
What song-names stick in your head?
