song snippets – #1

October 28, 2018

“Because we all have wings, but some of us don’t know why”.


The line above is a snippet from a song.  It’s not even a song I would say I know particularly well or is one of my favourites.  I just googled to confirm the name of the band that sings it (it’s INXS for those of you who weren’t sure either).  But is a song that has had frequent radio play since it came out in the early 90s.  And that line always jumps out at me.  I heard the song it’s from on the radio a couple of weeks ago, and once again, that line is all I remember hearing.  And it’s been in my head off and on since I heard it.

Maybe it’s just me, but there a lot of snippets from songs that have sticktoitiveness for me.  They seem to get into my brain.  Some are snippets of songs I love and listen to over and over.  Some, like this one, are just a random line from a random song that was popular once and so still gets played on the radio.  I’m sure what’s on our personal song snippet list says something about us and/or could lead to deeper analysis and insight.  But today I’m not going to go there.  I’m just going to share the snippet, and leave it to you to decide what is says to you.
