My radio in my home office has two set stations, my beloved Philadelphia Phillies or the local Oldies channel. Last weekend, while searching for paperbacks to donate to a book drive, I heard a song from my Community College days.The song, with it's amusing lyrics and snappy beat, was a 1982 hit by The Weather Girls, "It's Raining Men!"
On Monday we had rain here in Philly, and I mean RAIN! The kind of downpour where your umbrella does little good. While sloshing to the bus stop, I heard myself singing "It's Raining Men!" (although I have to confess, with my lack of tone, the Weather Girls won't be asking me to join their group).
During our break, when we all gather in the staff lounge, I couldn't stop singing the song. Several coworkers, who weren't even born in 1982, asked "what are you singing?" or "where did you get that song from?"
While I explained, one of my colleagues found this "entertaining" video on YouTube. After lots of witty comments and chuckles among my associates, I thought I'd share the video with you.
This song won't leave me alone. Although this past Friday was a beautiful, sunny day, I strolled through Washington Square singing...yep, you guessed it...
Ever have that dilemma? A song that keeps replaying in your head? Does anyone have any advice for me on how to get rid of it?
Have a great week, Everyone!
