In The Corner Of My Mind – Stream Of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

socs-badge-2019-2020

 

Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is “in the corner”. Country music fan that I am (I grew up listening to country music, thanks to my dad), as soon as I read that, I was struck with an earworm. I had Alabama’s song “Jukebox In My Mind” start playing in my head, even though I’ve not heard that song in a very long time.

It’s funny how that happens, isn’t it? How a song that you’ve not heard in a very long time can suddenly pop up in your mind? Or you just happen to hear a song you haven’t heard in years and you can still remember all the words? It happens to me a lot of times, since I have a rather eclectic taste in music, liking all sorts of different types of music.

In case you’re not familiar with the song and are wondering how it fits this prompt, it starts out “In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox.”

Take a listen to it, if you’d like. Alabama has been on of my favorite bands since I was little.

In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It’s playing all my favorite memories
One by one they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can’t stop this jukebox in my mind
 
I don’t need no quarters
Don’t need any dimes
You filled it up forever
When you said goodbye
 
Heaven knows I love old melodies
They were meant to ease the pain
But the kind that’s playing on my mind
Are driving me insane
 
In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It’s playing all my favorite memories
One by one they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can’t stop this jukebox in my mind
 
Song by song those melodies
Were meant to ease the pain
But the kind that’s playing on my mind
Are driving me insane
 
In the corner of my mind stands a jukebox
It’s playing all my favorite memories
One by one they take me back
To the days when you were mine
And I can’t stop this jukebox in my mind
No, I can’t stop this jukebox in my mind
