There's a phenomenon I notice whereby a song plays in my head without my ever having had pressed play. I'll be walking outside or trying to sleep, and I'll notice a song is legitimately playing in the background of my thoughts. Where exactly is that music coming from?

I call it Mental FM. Mental FM lays down all your favorite tracks, all times of the day, rotating in songs you, yourself, had forgotten.

If you crank it up and pay attention to any specific detail, you'll hear it with the same clarity of the recorded track. That tinny snare, those breathy lyrics, that textured synth.

Eventually, Mental FM will fade to silence as you tune back in to the mindless chatter on Thinking AM.
