The Music in My Mind

I have a soundtrack playing in my head, especially during moments when I’m alone. In the car, at home, in the office, wherever, there is likely music playing that only I can hear.

I’m sure I’m not alone in experiencing this phenomenon. At least, I hope I’m not.

Lately, the song in my head has been Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. Not so much the song as the refrain. Over and over and over, like a continuous call to contemplate the goodness of the Lord during what was a momentous week.

There are other songs that play, too. My head is a bit like an iPod Shuffle in that I don’t always know what’s going to pop up. Here are some of the songs in the regular rotation:

“I Lived” by One Republic, as performed by the cast of Glee in that show’s final episode.

What I Did For Love” from A Chorus Line, as performed by Josh Groban.

I’m Still Alive” by Meatloaf.

A Little Less Conversation” by Elvis Presley.

This is the New Year” by A Great Big World

Kryptonite” by 3 Doors Down.

Touch The Hem of His Garment” by Sam Cooke. My friend Ashton sang this in church a few weeks ago. It’s been kicking around my head ever since.

It’s an eclectic list, I know. And the songs pop in and out depending on the situation or mood I’m in and whether I need the beat for fortification (like during a tough workout) or if I’m pondering all I’ve been through. For better or worse, there is always something playing in my mind.

What’s on your mental playlist?
