Default Subliminal Messages !!!

there have been several recents posts where something will trigger a jingle from a commercial or a show's theme song in our minds and we can't get it out of our heads for the rest of the day..this morning on my walk I experience such a moment of clarity..a very long freight train was going across the tracks at an intersection and was blowing it's whistle..for some reason the theme to Petty Coat Junction came into my brain and I started singing the song..that of course led to the theme song to Green Acres and of course that lead to The Beverly Hillbillies..my neighbors are use to seeing me walking while singing or dancing to a smooth jazz song on my MP3 player, but they never heard me sing outloud...Come ride alittle train that is going down the track to the Junction. (doesn't fit my swagger)
It's interesting because on a daily basis on my walk when I hear a song on my MP3 player of an artist that I met and interacted with on a smooth jazz cruise, my mind can remember exactly which cruise, what day of the week and what the specific circumstances surrounded that interaction

my question to my fellow cruisemates is..what external stimulation causes you to have a specific song in your head....and....with the exception of law and order and csi..why are today's theme songs to tv shows not registering in our subconscious like the tv shows from the 60's

"green acres is the place to be, farm living is the life for me", yep you started it, its stuck in my head now. lol. If you think about it,most shows theme songs now do not have any lyrics, and the music is very subtle,maybe thats the reason

For me the neighbors would probably think: "There's Uncle Joe. He's a moving kinda slow at The Junction. Petticoat Junction."

It's scary that I know all of those theme songs by heart.

Take care,

When we were deciding on cancelling our TA and booking Panama instead at least 3 times in 2 weeks I turned on the Radio and Van Halen's Panama was playing. We decided to book Panama

What happens to me, when my alarm clock goes off and a song is playing, for some strange reason, that song just sticks with me for hours. I know its weird....
