This happens a lot, hence the “#1.” Sometimes my brain spontaneously plays a song for me. I play an enormous amount of games, so it’s no surprise that many of these songs come from games that have had an impact on me.
This particular song plays fairly consistently. It usually happens as I’m walking out of a classroom. I feel the satisfaction of conquering another class. My mind is swelling with knowledge. Slowly, an 8 bit harmonica begins playing its tune (at least I think it’s a harmonica). It is the ending theme from Megaman 3 aka “Protoman’s Theme.” I don’t know why this song penetrates me in this way. Just listening to it (which I am doing while writing this) makes me feel so cool. In fact, I no longer even hear the original version in my head. I hear this version. This song is the ultimate epilogue to any session of hard work.
Maybe it’s stuck in your head now….
