I had "Jamming" by Bob Marley in my head after seeing yellow totes at work with green and red sections that looked like the Rasta flag

"A hard days night" the Beatles, because I work at night

"Sloop John b (I wanna go home)" -When I want to clock out early

Songs pop into my head all the time from various things, although the lyrics may not always completely be applicable

Does this happen to anyone else?

When I see a car accident, I always think of when I got t-boned and The Kinks' Lola was on the radio...I can remember finally coming to a stop after getting whacked, and I sat there for a moment and then said L O L A Lola.

Sometimes Iím full of anger and grieving, so far away from believing that any sun will reappear

Songs often remind me of specific places and times.  For example, Tori Amos Professional Widow remix reminds me of Ibiza summer of 1997. :)

The Drugs Don't Work by The Verve, reminds me of starting trainee youth work in Autumn 1997.
One love, One blood, One life;
You got to do what you should.
One life; With each other
Sisters, Brothers
One life; But we're not the same
We get to carry each other, Carry each other
