All my thoughts on health, weight, running, food, etc., are either really dark and dank or else they are giddy and crazy. So instead of boring you with all that, I thought I would bore you with this.
I was driving home from work last night and Rush's Tom Sawyer came on the radio. I was laughing about how I will always associate that song -- really, any Rush songs -- with my high school crush D who was (and is) a huge Rush fan. That got me thinking about other music that is linked with other people.
Climax Blues Band's I Love You always makes me think of my childhood sweetheart, L.
Anything by Rush is for my high school crush, D. Particularly Red Barchetta and Tom Sawyer, although Tom Sawyer now also makes me think of the TV show Chuck.
Anything by Styx reminds me of a guy friend who was my first. So does Pink Floyd's The Wall, because they were running that movie on Mtv that particular night.
Anything Depeche Mode and I think about my high school boyfriend. He's a cool, edgy, depressed kind of a guy. A lot like Depeche Mode, really.
Cheap Trick's The Flame was playing when my college boyfriend first asked me to dance. Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb reminds me of the zillion times we broke up during college. Poison's Every Rose Has Its Thorn brings back the moment I first started to realize that love really isn't all you need to make a relationship work. And last but not least, Garth Brooks' Friends in Low Places is the song that my college boyfriend still threatens to sing at my wedding, should I ever get married.
I hate the band Mr. Big because of my last boyfriend, the putz. Too bad for Mr. Big, I kind of liked them before that.
What songs take you back?
