Like you, I do some kind of aerobic exercise almost every @#&%ing day (in addition to weight-lifting) because I understand that my brain needs a functioning body to carry it around for 100 years or so. And we all understand the importance of exercising the brain every day, too, don’t we?
Anyway, to endure the boredom of my 20-30 minutes on the treadmill, stair-climber, elliptical machine-thingy, or even a beach run, I listen to music. Most days that includes a song called “Lucky Man”, sung by some British odd-balls calling themselves The Verve.
Every day, for months, I’ve listened to the dopey lyrics of this song, thinking to myself, “Well, there’s no way he’s singing
‘It’s just a change in me, something in my liberty’.
“No, no”, I tell myself, “he must be singing something more sensible, more intelligent, surely!” Finally, I could endure it no longer and I Googled the [gosh-darned] lyrics…Yep, that’s what they’re singing, and the rest of the song is just as stupid!
But I still like the music.
