I've been experiencing the strangest phenomenon.  Randomly through out the day, and frequently when I wake up to feed Lampy in the wee hours of the night, for some reason I keep finding myself humming/singing the song Bulletproof in my head.  But here's the thing...I have NO idea how I know this song.  And today when I finally looked it up and downloaded it I had never even heard of La Roux...which is the band that sings Bulletproof.  I don't listen to the radio.  I don't remember seeing or hearing about them via the internet or TV.  How in the world do I know this song?  Was in on SYTYCD? (Which I've only watched a couple times by the way).  A morning talk show?  The hook of a commercial I can't remember?  What?  Where?   

Not that I mind's a catchy song and rather fun to dance to.  And serious props to La Roux for making a song so stuck-in-my-head-catchy that apparently just one listen has me hooked.    

But's a complete mystery.


  1. Funny...
    Looked on wikipedia and it has been played on the TV shows "Cougar Town" & "Ugly Betty." Do you watch those?

  2. This song gets stuck in my head too. But I know it wasn't on SYTYCD. At least I don't remember it on there. It's just that catchy.

  3. I've been obsessed with that song since last summer. Love it. It gets played a lot here and there, so it's possible you've just crossed paths with it.

    As If By Magic off the same album is also outstanding. Love, love, love that La Roux.

  4. Well, really, the lyrics aren't that complicated. But then it only takes 1 friend to mention their late night head DJ, and then every time you wake up in the middle of the night, you hear it too. Thanks for that.

  5. The collect conscious of millions of females singing that to themselves seeping into your subconscious.
