Mercury Anthems

March 15, 2012

I wanted to interrupt this long series of dietary posts to ask a question:

Is there a song that embodies the mercury toxic experience for you?

Recently, at a guitar class, I learned a song by Matchbox 20 called Unwell, and I thought it was a good addition to the ‘Chelation’ playlist on my iPod.

That’s right. I have a playlist.

On it, I’ve got P!nk’s Just Like a Pill (for when a round went bad), Maroon 5’s Won’t Go Home Without You (because that was the song that was playing on the bus when my ability to love music returned), and Crazy by Gnarls Barkley (for obvious reasons).

But the most evocative song on the list is My My My by Armand Van Helden. For me, it utterly, utterly captures the experience of being in the grip of repetitive OCD thoughts:

Are there songs that capture your mercury toxic experience? Let us know by commenting on this post (adding a link to the song on YouTube if you can find it) so we can hear each other’s chelation soundtracks 🙂

    This explains why I hate the song “My My My” so much!

    I think Fix You by Coldplay is mine!
