Gawd there's just something about certain songs that speak to my hind brain. Joe Cocker's You can leave your hat on is like that for me.
The opening strains hit me like a tsunami and my hips start circling, my hands start traveling my body and I have to find the nearest solid surface to gyrate against. Every part of my body has to meet and mingle with this music.
Why are humans wired like that? Why aren't all humans wired like that? I know that there are some people who claim to have never been affected by music. Then there are those of us who burst into tears during The Circle of Life in The Lion King.
[ok that might just be me]
For the sake of this posting's accuracy I tried experiencing The Circle of Life with and without the visual of the tiny lion king being presented to his subjects.
It turns out that I have to have both the visual and the song to get me to well up.
But funnily enough if I watch Joe Cocker sing it makes me want to cry.
