Walking On Broken Glass (#tbtune)


I remember very clearly the first time a song was ever "stuck in my head". I was around six, and heard "Walking on Broken Glass" on the radio- you know, kickin' it in the back seat, 1st grade style.

Something about either the strings, the hook, Annie Lennox's voice, or their combination struck me. When the song ended, I just wanted to hear it again. To hear it FOREVER. Later in the day, I was suddenly struck with a deep dread thinking to myself that I might actually NEVER hear the song ever again. I didn't even know its name. I didn't get to say good-bye. The music was fading from my brain. It was terrifying. 

So, naturally, I did what any sane person would do. I stood in front of the alarm clock radio on my Mom's night stand, turned to a station, and waited, determined to hear my new favorite song once more. 

Of course, I had no idea at the time that the radio plays a handful of songs perpetually, so imagine how shocked and amazed I was when, after what felt like hours (but, considering a six year old's perception of time, was probably around seven minutes), those strings vibrated out of the alarm clock speaker. I've been hooked ever since. 

I mean, the song is off the album "DIVA," so obviously it was meant to be. Do YOU remember the first song you ever had stuck in your head?
