Is This Weird?

Sometimes when I'm driving by myself in my car I, like most people, sing along to the radio.  What I also like to do is say the lyrics in a speaking voice and try to make it sounds like lines in a movie.  This doesn't work on all songs, of course.  Some lyrics are just too stupid to say.  One of my favorites is "Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.  Try it:

That ain't workin', that's the way you do it.
Play your gee-tar on the MTV.

That ain't workin' - that's the way you do it.
Money for nothin' and your chicks for free.

I like to create different characters and moods and make the words fit.  So...that's not weird, right?  If it is, I'm going to blame all those drama classes in high school.
