GUEST,reggie miles 'Are you SURE you wrote that?' (123* d) RE: 'Are you SURE you wrote that?' 30 Jan 07

I wrote one that I was excited to share with a friend. After listening to a short piece of it my friend John informed me that I had inadvertently used a Hank Williams melody, Cold Cold Heart, to back my lyrics. As soon as he mentioned it to me it I realized the same. Why had I not heard this before?

The strange thing is that, although I probably own everything written by Hank, I rarely get the opportunity to listen to his music or any of the vast amount of recorded music that I have at my disposal. I don't even have a vehicle that has a functional radio. So, I get very little exposure to his or anyone else's music.

My question is, how did Hank's melody become so dominant in my mind as to find it's way into my creative processes as I wrote the words to my song and escape my attention entirely?
