This morning on WXRT Chicago (I listen to it online), I heard Suzanne Vega's song "Tom's Diner," and I have effectively been sentenced to at least three days' worth of "doo de do do do do do dooo, do de do do do do dooo dooo" running in a loop through my brain. Okay, fine. It's an amazing song, and I salute you, Ms. Vega for the insidious simplicity of the tune. It is sticky like peanut butter.
This morning I have also heard on XRT: CCR's "Green River," The Stones' "Brown Sugar," Weezer's new song "Troublemaker," that song by Snow Patrol that was used so liberally on Grey's Anatomy a couple seasons back ("if I just liiiie here, would you lie wiiiith me...."), Death Cab for Cutie, and Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing."
I guess what I'm saying is, this radio station rawks my wrrrld, yo. Since rediscovering it online a couple of weeks ago, I fully recognize why my radio knob NEVER MOVED from the 93 frequency during our entire stay in Chicago in our newlywed days.
Thank goodness for Internet radio. Check it ouuuuut!
