Semi random blurt #01

When bored or just going about my everyday life I often whistle. It brightens, not just my mood, but the mood in the room/space I find myself in at the moment. So when in doubt, whistle. When I whistle it is most often this melody:

that pops up in to my head and makes it way out through my pursed lips.

It makes everything more enduring and more light hearted, my troubles just disappear (not really, but it feels like it). But I don’t always whistle the “Andy Griffith Show” them song (that’s what’s it called apparently, but for me it will always be Molly’s’ tune (Long live Scrubs)). I have another tune I often whistle and that tune is what made me write this post.

The reason is that I just a few days ago started questioning where it came from, I had always whistle that tune, it was my default tune, the most basic of tunes, it was the essences of my whistling and I couldn’t figure out if it was a melody created by myself or if I was something already in existence. It bothered me. If it was a tune of my own creation, I certainly had to write it down since it was so easy going and relaxing, but if it wasn’t I needed to know where it came from. What finally made me realize the songs origin, very appropriately so, was a few raindrops falling upon me.

It was the beginning of the “Singing in the Rain” song (specifically the part between 0:47-0:55, I just keep looping that part). So with some disappointment I realized I would not be the creator of catchy tune (as of yet) but it gave me a new head scratcher. Why is my default tune the beginning of “Singing in the Rain”? I’ve never seen the movie, nor have I ever heard the original performance of the song, at least that I know of… quite the mystery.
