Hearing a song for the first time, after all this time (no drugs necessary)

Isn't it funny how sometimes that part of your brain, the creative, feeling, wonderful part of your brain, just wakes up? Sometimes I have heard a song a million times and know it by heart, and that part of my brain wakes up and I am able to hear it for the first time.

This happened today with the song Mr Blue by the Fleetwoods. A great song, but not my favorite Fleetwoods song or a song that I thought too much about.

Until today.

I was listening to the RadioLab on colors (you have to listen to this episode!) and the last song they played was a cover of Mr Blue by this band I've never heard of. Do yourself a favor and listen to their version of the song here.
