Several weeks ago, I was home on a Sunday morning when, for no apparent reason, these words popped into my head: "Funky Cold Medina." That's a line from a song by rapper Tone Loc.
I'm told it was a hit in the 1990s, but I'd never heard it until the night before. I was at a karaoke bar. My friend Jay Beezley sang it.
When the song reappeared in my head the next day, I could hear Jay singing the chorus again and again and again.
