So today I woke up at the butt crack of dawn, if I do say so….well, technically it was before the but crack of dawn because it was four-something in the morning. But, in my head the music started…please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the, please don’t stop the music. I blame it on that whole….the last thing you heard before you fell asleep. Last night I was so caught up in a book I was reading and I couldn’t put it down. Not only because it was an addictive story, but I just wasn’t sleepy at all. So I did the big “No No” and left the tv on as I read. I finished the entire book and wrote an Amazon review before I finally got sleepy. (I know, WTH…I’m boring). Anyway, at some point Pitch Perfect came on and now I have their songs playing in my head…..it’s been going strong all day long like it’s my own private soundtrack in my mind. I took the kids to school humming, I Saw The Sign. Really? Who the hell does that?
I had never taken the time to watch the movie because it seemed too….chick flicky, but let me tell you, it has a catchy soundtrack. At least that is what I’ve been telling myself all day so I don’t feel super dorky for having all of the songs stuck in my head. I was washing the dishes singing Starship at the top of my lungs before I realized what I was doing. And that’s because I don’t sing due to the fact that I still have the voice of a sixth grader….it never grew up. But when I was folding laundry at about two o’clock this afternoon and was singing that Simple Minds song from The Breakfast Club (what’s the name of it) Don’t You Forget About Me, I wanted to shoot myself. So what did I do? I spent the rest of the afternoon until the kids got out of school listening to rock. I had to get the Glee-type music out of my head.
It worked for the most part until I found myself reading with the tv on again on HBO and guess what came on??? You got it, Pitch Perfect…..AGAIN. So I could’ve sat there and whined about it, but instead I thought screw it…I watched the damn movie. Now I feel like I drank the kool-aid. I actually liked the movie….I feel so wrong. 😁
