Inflight radio

I always used to look forward to flying Kingfisher because of their inflight radio, specially since one of the channels plays only rock. But my last trip left me wiser, next time I'll be carrying my music player. The radio has now been reduced to a playlist of 10 songs per month I guess. In all my flights, these 10 songs were played in an endless loop. And since the total playtime of these songs lasted about 50 minutes, it meant in a two hour flight, you get to hear every song at least twice. And if you are travelling more, which was my case, you get to hear the same songs umpteen times.

Anyway, the song that I heard the most during my trips was Bob Dylan's Positively 4th Street..

You got a lotta nerve
To say you are my friend
When I was down
You just stood there grinning

You got a lotta nerve
To say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on
The side that's winning

You say I let you down
You know it's not like that
If you're so hurt
Why then don't you show it

You say you lost your faith
But that's not where it's at
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

I know the reason
That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd
You're in with

Do you take me for such a fool
To think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide
What he don't know to begin with

You see me on the street
You always act surprised
You say, "How are you?" "Good luck"
But you don't mean it

When you know as well as me
You'd rather see me paralyzed
Why don't you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief
Perhaps I'd rob them

And now I know you're dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don't you understand
It's not my problem

I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you

And I wonder,coincidence or divine intervention..
