I will possess your brain...

...in the form of an unbreakable ear worm. I listen to 89.3 the Current pretty much exclusively when in the car or at home. And in the past month, I'd swear I've heard Death Cab for Cutie's new song, I will possess your heart, at least once an hour. Probably more. And then it runs in my head all day long. All night too.

Not that that's a bad thing. I really like the song and amazingly, I'm not sick of it at all. I'm not sure what it is, but there's a quality to the tune that feels at home in my head. So kudos to the Death Cab.

So today I've been sitting and working online for 14 hours straight. Again, I'd swear I heard the song at least once an hour. So I checked. It's actually been aired only three times since I've been awake (and once beforehand). So either I'm tired, had a few too many beers, been working too hard, or all of the above. Oh well -- I'm really not complaining. Like I mentioned, the song is great.

Watch and listen!

Here are the lyrics, just for kicks:

How I wish you could see the potential,
the potential of you and me.
It's like a book elegantly bound,
but in a language you can't read just yet.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

There are days when outside your window,
I see my reflection as I slowly pass.
And I long for this mirrored perspective
when we'll be lovers, lovers at last.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

I will possess your heart.
I will possess your heart.

You reject my advances and desperate pleas.
I won't let you let me down so easily.
So easily…

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

You gotta spend some time love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you'll find love.
I will possess your heart.

I will possess your heart.
I will possess your heart.
