Do you ever get deja vu when you listen to the radio? It's happened to me a few times over the past several weeks. I've been traveling between appointments and the same song is played at the same time on the radio as it was a few days before. For a few seconds I think I've just dreamt that I've heard the song days earlier at the same time of the day, but then I realize, I really did hear it at the same time on two different days. And lately I've been thinking Michael Jackson has been sending me messages from beyond the grave.
