first thoughts in the morning

Usually when I wake up I'm not coherent enough to form any thoughts. I don't even consciously think "Where's the snooze button?" it's more like a Pavlovian response to find the snooze button and hit it.

I woke up about ten minutes ago to no alarm (i don't have to be anywhere today), and for some reason, the song "Radar Love" by Golden Earring was running with crystal clarity in my head the moment i woke up.

Odd.

Sing along with rEoM's head!
The Lyrics for anyone who isn't familiar with the tune...

RADAR LOVE
GOLDEN EARRING

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head that drives my heel
It's my baby callin', says I need you here
And it's a half past four and I'm shiftin' gear
When she is lonely and the longing gets too much
She sends a cable comin' in from above
Don't need no phone at all
We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
We've got a wave in the air, Radar Love
The radio is playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lee's comin' on strong
The road has got me hypnotized
And I'm speedin' into a new sunrise
When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough
She sents her comfort comin' in from above
We don't need no letter at all
We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
We've got a light in the sky
(Instrumental break)
No more speed, I'm almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars drove down real slow
And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee's comin' on strong
And the newsman sang his same song
Oh one more radar lover gone
When I get lonely and I'm sure I've had enough
She sents her comfort comin' in from above
We don't need no letter at all
We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
We've got a light in the sky
We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
We've got a thing that's called Radar Love
