    Default 'Hearing' songs before they come on

    Do you have any experience with this?


    For example, yesterday I found a YouTube playlist of fifty Weird Al songs - I hadn't listened to him in many years and I thought it'd be fun getting all nostalgic. I was playing World of Warcraft and during a song I kind of 'slipped', during which I heard maybe two bars of "Smells Like Nirvana" in my head. I thought, "Oh yeah, that song, how good of a musician Weird Al is."

    THE VERY NEXT SONG WAS SMELLS LIKE NIRVANA.

    I have had this personal phenomenon happen reoccurringly in my life (and to far greater extent), but until now my inner skeptic chalked it up to delayed cognition, perhaps during my 'slips' I fall into a sort of timeless passing, experiencing all perception in a jumbled rush of non-linear thought. This time, though, I positively fell out of this 'slip' prior to the next song coming on - which is something that habitually casts shadows of doubt over the phenomenon I experience. This, or I am far too prone at chalking coincidence up to grander structuring of the universe. This, or my conceptually working physical model for this phenomenon is true (preferable, obvi).


    I would really enjoy any feedback on the subject - particularly if you've experienced anything more grand in scope. Don't be scurred of criticism

    I often get bits of random music- some I don't even like- sporadically looping in my brain at any given moment, then later that day I'll hear it on the radio in a doctors office or inside a store, etc. I get this with pieces of films, too. Something'll bring a scenario to my mind, briefly, and within a day or so, I'll notice it's being shown on television/see a trailer for it. I figure it's just odd coincidence, and little else.


    Weird Al makes me want to punch things.

    Happens all the time. I also typically know I'm about to get a call before I get one, too.

    I used to be able to tell when my INTJ would call as well as know who was on the other side before answering the phone. I also tend to get visions about sensotard moments that are bound to become reality if I wouldn't pay more attention as I did [insert future task]. And I often know what people in movies are going to say, even if I havent seen the movie before.

    ^ I have an INFJ coworker who will say "oops" and then run into things/people. It's like she can see the sensotardedness coming, but for whatever reason she can't stop herself. It's hilarious, though annoying when she's about to run into you with a stack of something, because by that point you can't do anything but brace yourself. She also correctly predicts minor lottery numbers, which at first I didn't believe, but it's happened a couple times now.

    Myself, I can guess new song lyrics ahead of time fairly often, but that's about it. I chalk that up less to my own brilliance and more to the commonality of certain phrases in pop songs.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    I hope that this prediction is true.
