and @IbisNibsApparently she manages to get into private functions by pretending to belong there and has photos taken with celebrities.
A trivial but intriguing thing. Our kitchen radio is usually set to BBC Radio Two, with occasional visits to Radio 4 or Radio 4 Extra if something is on that's worth listening to.
The only deviation from this rule is a Saturday morning, where while we're eating light breakfast, Herself likes listening to Graham Norton's Saturday show (he migrated from the BBC to Virgin Radio after a tiff).
In the evening, I switched the kitchen radio on, vaguely noted it was playing a recent-ish hit from perhaps ten years ago - long enough out of the charts to be off the playlist and a "sort of gold-coloured oldie". Something otherwise so-so and not all that memorable, anyway.
I realised the radio was still set to Virgin, and switched it over to its usual default of Radio Two.
EXACTLY the same song was playing. not in synchronicity to Virgin - but maybe thirty seconds apart. I had to check I'd actually changed channel.
As I say, trivial. But worth noting.
Indeed, we could easily have a separate thread for 'Songs that refuse to be dead and buried'.
Trev666 said:I think you'll be upset to hear that was released in 1985. Slightly more than 10 years ago.
It was rereleased in the mid-1990s and was a far bigger hit. Now every music radio station in the land plays the bastard on rotation.
It isn't a coincidence. Your iPhone listens to you. If you mention a trip you took photos you took on that trip will pop up, probably the same with the music.Similar to @ChasFink - when I'm going about the labs, I tend to sing, mostly snatches of various songs that pop into my head. Yesterday I was singing something less popular - I can't even remember what it was now - for about 30 seconds. When I was washing up after dinner with my iPhone playing, that same song came on. If you consider that I have something like 4 days' worth of music on my phone, that does count as a bit of a coincidence.
