thought of this when I saw the "song stuck in your head" thread.

do you ever hear a phrase in general conversation, either just the phrase or the phrase as part of a sentence, and it immediately brings a song to mind? I can't think of an actual example that happened but a hypothetical would be someone says "What a joke" and you think of / start hearing What a Joke by Deliverance in your head.


whenever that happens to me, not only does it come into my head, but if I am at home I usually start playing it for my family...happens semi-frequently...

Most definitely ! My whole life whenever someone would say a key word or words together that are also shared by a song that's been cataloged in my head, I would immediately start singing it. Drives my wife crazy... she's actually told me it fascinates her how many songs are in my brain Laughing

I do the same thing, G/F.  Either something I say or something someone else says triggers a song.  I will break out in song right then, too.  I will usually end the quick little performance with a silly moment and say something like, "Sorry--80s flashback!"  lol!

Yeah recently my wife was making a seating chart for her class. She changes it up regularly in her class. She said she had to keep the talkers "seperated" and the first thing we thought of was "Keep 'em seperated" by the Offspring (and we don't even listen to that band hahaha).

I used to do this constantly when I was a young man.  Nearly everything someone said would remind me of a song lyric and I would usually start singing that part of the song instantly.  Fast-forward a few years and I realize that most people don't appreciate that (and some of them think me more than a little crazy).  So I pretty much quit doing it.  It still happens now, but usually only 3 or 4 times a week (as opposed to 5 or 6 times a day).

Oh, very often. Sometimes it'll even be a visual cue, like if I see someone dressed fancy but with shoes that don't match. "High class in overcruise, a little hip talk in borrowed shoes…"

I used to do it ad nauseam when I was younger.  I still have it happen quite a bit.

Sometimes when someone is telling me something, it reminds me to a song.

Sometimes. If it's not song lyrics, it's movie dialogue.

Constantly.  I used to drive my wife crazy with it until I started to rein it in.  Death threats have that power on me.

There's a song in there.  The chorus could be:

Death threat: It's the threat of death
Death threat: It's the threat of death
Death threat: It's the threat of death
Death threat: It's the threat of death

Right after I typed that response I had to take my kids somewhere and it was going to be close as to whether we were late or not.  As soon as we pulled out of our driveway, my youngest said "We're not gonna make it," to which my oldest and I without any hesitation started singing "No, we ain't gonna make it.  We're not gonna make it on time," of course to the tune of "We're Not Gonna Take It."  I don't know if I should blame genetics or if I have already warped the poor child.

Probably a combination of both.  Laughing

I don't know - a lot of psychologists will tell you nurture can overtake nature...

Whenever someone says "not even close" (or even when I say it) I immediately hear Dave Mustaine saying it.
