Just try to ensure they are good advices, since sly ones with evil intent confuse the brain,
I remember on that used to play in my mind for days every time I listened to it, but then I felt like rodney trotter when he was being had after I started reading the Quran and realising the power of rhythm and realized how those dodgy pop songs were saving stuff in different compartments.
It went something like:
Lookin' in your eyes'a
------- See a paradise'a
this world that i've found
------- Is too good to be true......
It plays so many times in the head that the brain is left with no option but to sift that info into something that makes sense.
Well, it ends up doing what I just did with the indents above.
Especially since "heaven is a place on earth" was being played regularly.
Add amphetamines to the mix to open up your neural pathways and it's almost a done deal with the devil
And that "barney is a dinosaur from our imagination" song that my nephews and nieces used to watch was also confusing and did something like a magical spell on me for a time.
Especially when it said "barney can be your friend too if you just make believe him".
It was so catchy and repetitive that it started making a 20 year old living in england at the time wonder if there was anything beyond the material. God knows the effect it had on the kids.
The power of rhyme and rhythm....
Anyways, the moral is to listen to truthful and just rhyme and rhythm for faster results.

Now I'm wondering if I should have given MIA ideas about poetry.
I looked at the post and remembered the story about the boat my dad told me when I was little.
It goes like this :)
Some people were getting on a narrow-boat to cross a river,
Amongst them there was a loony dude who was just trying to act like everyone else,
One of the passengers recognizes him and begs: "please don't get any ideas about rocking the boat and sinking everyone",
The dude suddenly has a eureka moment and says "good idea!!!"
Stands up and starts rocking the boat from side to side.........
