Welcome to the Silly Season. This (I hope) series will be about silly things that will hopefully make you smile. Currently the weather here is quite silly for December in Australia. Yesterday we made it to 22 degrees, with a thunderstorm, much rain and some hail for something different. Saturday was two thunderstorms and today promises to get to 18 degrees with only the possibility of thunderstorms. I don’t think I’ve ever worn a cardy and a vest at this time of year in Australia before. Usually I’m looking at the sky worrying about bushfires.
Anway, the substance of this post is songs, which while not in themselves silly, have made me get silly images or audio in my head. Most recently while driving, which was fine as I can giggle and drive at the same time. The previous one was at my Mum’s wedding to her current husband in the middle of one of the hymns. It really is a rather lovely hymn but one previously unknown to me and when they got to the “calling in the night bit” I just heard in my head someone saying “hellooo, hellooo?” which made me giggle and then because we were in the middle of a wedding ceremony , try not to giggle which only made it worse. My Nigel (and fellow athesist) was looking at me wondering what the joke was and if I’d let him in on it (which I did, big mistake because then we were both trying not to giggle) and the priest was giving us both death stares. (We were 27 at the time and should have been better behaved).
The one while I was driving was “Sex on Fire” by Kings of Leon. I love this song and think it is one of the best songs about yearning for someone that I have heard. I’m sure there are many more that I’ve never heard, but for me this is right up there with “Constant Craving” and “Feelin’ Love”.
But this time when it got to the chorus and ‘you-ah your sex is on fire-er’ what I heard in my head was more like a friendly neighbour popping up over the back fence and calling “Yoo hoo, your ah sex is on fire, just thought you should know!” in a bright and cheery loud whisper way. If you know what I mean.
So what songs leave silly images/audio in your head? Or is it just me?
