I like music. I am not a fanatic to know every detail of a song, though. Generally I know the tune but seldom know the lyrics. I use music as more of a background while working.

I chose that title because he was tone deaf. He once said "I know only two tunes: one of them is 'Yankee Doodle', and the other isn't. That always makes me laugh.

I had been hearing a particular song for a while, several months at least. It sounded kind of sad and I never did listen to the lyrics until today. The story does not relate to losing a spouse at all..... but the last part of the song rang so true for me that it made it hard to drive with the tears in my eyes.

"When I close my eyes I see you
No matter where I am
I can smell your perfume through these whispering pines
I'm with your ghost again
It's a shame about the weather
But I know soon we'll be together
And I can't wait 'til then
I can't wait 'til then"

I find that often a song will come into my mind in some unconscious way and it will be just what I am feeling at the time.

there is something about music that bypasses the thought process and goes straight into the brain region where your emotions live. For me, lately, it has been this one song - I saw the title of a video on YT and thought it was the Cole Porter song, "Easy to Love." Well, it is a completely different song by that title, sung by Judith Durham of the Seekers. Here it is, get out your hankies.

I have been hearing a song in my head lately since my husband passed away from cancer last December 2015.  I thought I was just going crazy with grief.  The line in the song is "I'm so lonesome, I could cry".  We'll get over this, just be patient with yourself.  We have been through a lot with the loss of a loved one.  It's definitely a roller coaster of emotions.  I really understand your feelings.  You are not alone.
