"Eat Well, Stay Fit, Die Anyway"

We Can Dance

I don’t know if the universe is trying to tell me something, but in the last 24 hours, I’ve heard the song “Everybody’s Working for the Weekend” nine times, and through a wide variety of sources.

It’s been on TV, in a store, even playing in a car beside me at a stoplight.  I have no concrete plans for this weekend, but I get the distinct impression I should be working harder as we approach it.  I mean, EVERYBODY’S working for the weekend, right?

Or, does the song mean that everyone will be working during the weekend?  I’m so confused.  Why can’t all songs have a clearer message, like “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats.  They make it clear that if you don’t dance and your friends don’t dance, you’re no friend of theirs.

So I guess my mission for the next few days is clear; I have to get that song out of my head by listening to “Safety Dance” non-stop.  If I lose my mind (and I will), tell my loved ones I did it out of respect for clarity in lyrics.  Remember me.
