    The haunting melody continues to buzz around in my brain.



    Far Away Places

    Sam Cooke
    Far away places with strange sounding names
    Far away over the sea
    Those far away places with the strange sounding names are
    Calling
    Calling me
    Goin' to China or maybe Siam
    I wanna see for myself
    Those far away places I've been reading about in a
    Book that I took from a shelf
    I start getting' restless whenever I hear the whistle of a train
    I pray for the day I can get underway
    And look for those castles in Spain
    They call me a dreamer
    Well maybe I am
    But I know that I'm burning to see those
    Far away places with the strange sounding names
    Calling, calling me
    Me

    For some reason, I always wake up with a song in my head. This morning, it was "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers.

    I've heard the myriad version of Faraway Places, and for some reason associate it with a movie that I cannot recall.

    When I first heard Faraway Places as a young girl, I knew immediately that I was going to be a traveler. Once I was an adult, I was off and running.

    I'm old enough to remember Bing Crosby's treatment associated with deliriously happy childhood memories. Gotta check out Sam Cooke; never heard that one.

    Regarding the OP title, I recall awakening to an early (but not the original) version of "Unchained Melody" on the last day of school, 5th grade:

    It's a good song, a good song to wake up to.

    Awoke to this on my radio this AM and can't get it out of my head.

    I usually wake up with a peaceful, calm tune in my head, like, "Yakety Yak!"

    I thought you'd like a sentimental ballad. :D

    I can't recall waking to a melody in my head. I have awaken thinking about the day ahead and I have awoke from an
    unpleasaant dream but I've never suffered from some old tune being stuck in the noggin coming out of sleep that I
    can recall.

    I have had "As Long as I Can See the Light" (CCR) in my head for a few days; it's getting annoying.

    It seems I always have a tune stuck in my head, and it's easy for me to displace with another one...but I'm never completely tune-free.

    I posted one of my favorite Anita Kerr albums a couple of weeks ago in response to Nancy Hart's post, and I have two of those songs perpetually rattling around now. I know Anita displaced another tune, but I cannot recall what it was. And I know I could just as easily displace Anita with something else that would get stuck on repeat, and Anita wouldn't even be a distant memory...she'd be gone.
