Just Write (31)

I have a shocking ability to remember song lyrics. This is not limited to good songs, or songs to which you’d actually like to know the words. “Bust a Move” shares brain space with “Don’t it Make My Brown Eyes Blue” and the entire Pavement catalog.  If I could replace half of the song lyrics floating around my head, I’d be much better at math. And this is why I’m so excited about this week’s prompt—it could make all of that worthless knowledge viable:

“Write a story based on the title of your favorite song.”

--The San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, 642 Things to Write About (Chronicle, 2011)
