3970 : Coincidences

I was reading a fascinating piece by Murakami (Haruki) on coincides. Unsure if that was fiction or non-fiction. Either way, it moved me very deeply.

Call it the Baader Meinhof, if you may.....but here goes.

So, I am alone three days ago. Working and deeply engrossed. When I am alone, I sometimes sing (loud and croon). So I am singing the first song that comes to my mind. Its an obscure, but lovely song called - "Outside" by George Michael.

Its a risque song, and I love it. I know most of the lyrics.

Let's go outside (let's go outside)

In the sunshine

I know you want to, but you can't say yes

Let's go outside (let's go outside)

In the meantime

Take me to the places that I love best

And as I finish my croon I realise, that the room is silent. The music had been shut off some hours ago (due to my previous zoom call).

I go to my shuffle list on spotify. Launch the list. This list has this song, along with 1167 others.

And I click on shuffle, and guess what. The song that plays is "Outside".

What are the odds? Murakami, you just freaked me out.
