I'm certain there are other threads that already have this topic, but I don't feel like searching.  So here goes...

For some reason, several times in the past week, this song has popped up in my world.  The original's a classic, but I really love this version:

I'm always amazed at how I can not hear or think of a song for a long time, then for no particular reason, it starts randomly appearing in my life in unrelated areas.

Not talking about commonplace, well played things. I'm talking about obscure limited interest stuff.

Currently, I'm being harassed by "I Don't Like Mondays" by the Boomtown Rats.

Not exactly my thing. It came on a Spotify list the other day. Then, my daughter was investigating Queen's appearance at Live Aid. Sure enough, I walked through while the Rats were performing. Last week, my wife was re-watching "The West Wing". A tragedy occurred, and a soft piano played. Tori Amos started singing her cover of "I Don't Like Mondays".

In a week or so, the Universe will move on to something else.

I recall that song being almost a staple in various TV/movie soundtracks.  I was always okay with it, but never loved it.

Another one that's been creeping up on me lately, is by one of my all-time favorite bands so it's no surprise.

I did think about the words a little more deeply and realized that while it was relevant for the projections on-screen for TV and movies and magazines back in the 70s, it's possible that it's even MORE relevant in our modern era of social media.  Just something I was thinking about...

our tastes are obviously very different but I did listen to both and enjoyed them

"I Don't Like Mondays" sadly recounts an incident from the late 70's at Grover Cleveland Elementary school in California. A 16 year old girl, who lived across the street from the school, stepped outside with her father's rifle and started shooting. Killed two adults and injured 9 students. While being interviewed about the crime, she replied, "I don't like Mondays. You know, this sort of livens up the day.".

I've always enjoyed that song from O Brother, lh320.  And that's a cool version.

I like it too
I kinda stumbled onto this group called Home Free
5 guys and a cross between The Oakridge Boys and a barber shop quartet

Heres another one from them that I really like its a Percy Sledge cover and knocks it out of the park

There are several of those a capela groups out there these days.  

In general, I like what they do, but also, their songs end up all sounding sort of the same too.  I can take them in small doses, I think.

Yes Ive since heard other groups but I like these guys the best

I enjoy finding "unknown" performers and following them as they develop
