Pat, of Lionskull Towers has been developing a seemingly unhealthy obsession for the new cover of 'Mad World' by Gary Jules, exit music for Donnie Darko. Thanks to a video rendition on Top of the Pops 2 the other evening, I too, have this song stuck in my head.
And occasionally I sing bits.
Well, actually, most of it plays in my head, and then, for some reason, I only join in for the 'Mad World' bit. It would seem I was taking a few pages out of Ford Prefect's book, who sang just the 'Mad' bit of Noel Coward's 'Mad about the boy'. In today's world, it doesn't seem too inappropriate.
Wandering round St. Alban's station this morning, it drew a few worried glances. When I was buying a coffee with my Two-Party-Weekend backpack on, a random bloke came up and asked me if I was going to France. I said no. He told me he'd just got back from Germany. How nice.
To cap off the whole worryingly verging-on-craziness morning, for the first time in ages, my hair has betrayed me, and is standing up and sprouting off in all sorts of directions, making me look not unlike the little brown aliens that live in a baggage locker in Men in Black 2.
Everyone in my office is too polite to comment on this.
