The Question Club
So, a bit of background:|
There were a couple of CDs I bought 10 years ago, while I was wallowing in the self-pity that was absorbing me after being dumped. A couple of songs on them (for those keeping score, The Monkees' I Wanna Be Free and Weird Al Yankovic's You Don't Love Me Anymore) managed to strike the melancholy chord, and for some time after, they were always very difficult songs to listen to. In the last half hour, I decided to test myself all this time later and see if I could play them without the whiny emo-kid response. I discovered that I was indeed able to, but for some bizarre reason, there was still that slight trace of... some feeling I can't identify.
By the same token, there are songs that my year five teacher (in 1989) often used when we did dancing as part of daily fitness. I still can't hear Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go without hearing his voice chanting "Heel, toe, knee. Heel, toe, knee. Kick, kick, jump, clap"
So, the question for you, are there any songs that will, no matter what, always be associated with certain events or times in your life? Which songs/events are they?
