Perhaps this is just something quirky about me. But I love music, and yet I cant for the life of me read it. This usually means to learn it I must hear it over and over again. I learn and then do everything by ear.

It also means that I have a way of connecting a person, or a period of time, or a place to the music.

I wondered if anyone else has that. Music that reminds you of a place, or a special event, or a person...and if so...whether they would like to share.

I will do...but later...after work...im on lunch right now...and must return before i'm.....ooops...too late :laugh:

My first love (at age 15) could play the guitar. He has even kept with it over the years and is now really, really good. We reconnected as friends through FB recently and I've been able to listen to some new things he's done. He moved away before we had dated a full year and both of us had broken hearts over that for a long time. Who knows what would have happened if he hadn't moved away?

Anyway, he used to play "Sweet Child of Mine" all the time for me so anytime I hear that song, I think of him. He's now married and has children, I'm divorced but very much in love with my bf of 8 months so there's no rekindling romance. I just have great memories of him and will always cherish him and hope the best for him. His name is Patrick.

:laugh: this will forever remind me of Sarah (a very close friend from university) because we were caught in the kitchen dancing to it :ashamed:

put a spell on you
'Cause you're mine

You better stop the things you do
I ain't lyin'
No I ain't lyin'

You know I can't stand it
You're runnin' around
You know better daddy
I can't stand it cause you put me down

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You're mine

I love ya
I love you
I love you
I love you anyhow
And I don't care
if you don't want me
I'm yours right now

You hear me
I put a spell on you
Because you're mine

and this one reminds me of Angela who I lived with in Saint Paul's Cathedral, because we would always sing it together whilst doing the washing up :)

How can I think I'm standing strong?
Yet feel the air beneath my feet.
How can happiness feel so wrong?
How can misery feel so sweet?

How can you let me watch you sleep?
Then break my dreams the way you do.
How can I have got in so deep?
Why did i fall in love with you?

[Chorus]
This is the closest thing to crazy
I have ever been.
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen.
This is the nearest thing to crazy
I have ever known.
But I was never crazy on my own.
And now I know
That there's a link between the two,
Being close to craziness, and being close to you

How can you let me fall apart?
Then break my fall with lovin lies.
It's so easy to break a heart,
It's so easy to close your eyes.

How can you treat me like a child?
Yet like a child I yearn for you.
How can anyone feel so wild?
How ca anyone feel so blue?

[Chorus]
This is the closest thing to crazy
I have ever been.
Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen.
This is the nearest thing to crazy
I have ever known.
I was never crazy on my own.
And now I know
That there's a link between the two,
Being close to craziness, and being close to you

And being close to you

And being close to you

Sinead O'Connor "Nothing Compares 2 U".

Oh man. My big time college boyfriend and I were dating when this song came out and we both loved it. He said it should be "our song", which I told him was stupid because it's not a love song...

Fast forward 2 months and we were broken up and I was devastated. Every time I heard this song....argh! (Pathetic...I was 19, that's my only excuse).

He was eventually revealed for the low-class man-skank that he is...and I know that I dodged a HUGE bullet with that guy....


....but 20 years later...when I hear the opening notes to that song...I still go breathless for a few seconds...:ninja:

After I had gotten divorced we tried dating each other again and that was more painful than the original split.."Back on the chain gang" by The Pretenders. It makes me cry everytime..:sad:
"Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak for a Marine I had a fling with ...:ashamed:

Martin Brown is one of the few people I have two separate tracks for, one makes me think of him inconjunction with university when we lived in the same halls of residence, and the second reminds me of what our friendship became like during and after my time in London.

I must have left my house at eight, because I always do
My train, I'm certain, left the station just when it was due
I must have read the morning paper going into town
And having gotten through the editorial, no doubt I must have frowned
I must have made my desk around a quarter after nine
With letters to be read, and heaps of papers waiting to be signed
I must have gone to lunch at half past twelve or so
The usual place, the usual bunch
And still on top of this I'm pretty sure it must have rained
The day before you came

I must have lit my seventh cigarette at half past two
And at the time I never even noticed I was blue
I must have kept on dragging through the business of the day
Without really knowing anything, I hid a part of me away
At five I must have left, there's no exception to the rule
A matter of routine, I've done it ever since I finished school
The train back home again
Undoubtedly I must have read the evening paper then
Oh yes, I'm sure my life was well within its usual frame
The day before you came

I must have opened my front door at eight o'clock or so
And stopped along the way to buy some Chinese food to go
I'm sure I had my dinner watching something on TV
There's not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn't see
I must have gone to bed around a quarter after ten
I need a lot of sleep, and so I like to be in bed by then
I must have read a while
The latest one by Marilyn French or something in that style
It's funny, but I had no sense of living without aim
The day before you came

And turning out the light I must have yawned and cuddled up for yet another night
And rattling on the roof I must have heard the sound of rain
The day before you came

Martin has always been there for me, and during the two hardest points of my life really. :)

Willie Nelson "Blue Eyes Crying In the Rain"...always makes me think of family reunions on my mom's side. She has 11 siblings plus uncles, aunts, cousins..and they're all musical. At family reunions the guitars come out and everyone sings.
Now my uncle has a karaoke business, so we also sing karaoke at reunions! :happydancing:

I use music a lot when coming up with ideas for drawings or stories. Mostly electronic music (techno, rave, trance, electronica, whatever you want to call it) and some alternative rock.

There was an alt rock song that I really liked when I was stationed in Ft. Hood, but I could never figure out who sang it. It wasn't until I got back from Bosnia in May of 1997 that I finally discovered the name of the song and the artist. So this always reminds me of those first few weeks after getting home from Bosnia.

Hum - Stars:

One of the first songs I listened to on my first night back from Bosnia:

Type O Negative - Love You To Death:

And this one:

Corrosion of Conformity - King of the Rotten:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPN98xaD_XY

As you can tell, my tastes in music where a little on the harder side back then. :)

This is Fantasia on the Dargason, the 4th movement from Holst 2nd Suite in F. It was the closing piece of our Marching Show my senior year of high school. Everytime I hear it, it takes me back to the VBODA (Virginia Band & Orchestra Director's Association) competition. It was the huge state-wide competition for all the marbles. My freshman year, we had gotten a "Good" from the judges. In case you're wondering, that's like getting a C-. Sure, you're not terrible, but you didn't really do that hot, either. The ratings are:

Superior
Excellent
Good
Fair
Poor
Anyway, we had worked our tails off for the next 3yrs & had gotten "Excellent" my sophomore & junior years. As a section leader, I had spent coutless hours trying to get my Low Brass on point & it was finally time to see how all our work was going to pay off. When we stepped on the field that cold October night in Charlottesville, it seemed like time would alternate between coming to a dead stop & then flying faster than I thought possible. Before I realized it, we had finished our first 3 songs & were about to begin Dargason. Everything went perfectly. The freshman trombone player with two left feet I had spent the whole year coaching played every note spot on & was hitting the forms perfectly, never getting off step. The soloists were blowing their @$$es off & I had goosebumps from start to finish. When we marched off the field afterwards, I teared up. I knew it was the last time I'd ever march (VCU doesn't have a marching band). All the hot summers practicing on the black-top followed by frigid winter nights up in the tops of the stands trying to keep my mouthpiece from freezing to my lips...it was a lot to take in. Then the judges gave our scores to the MC & he announced over the PA system that we had recieved straight 1s (top mark) from all the judges & a perfect "Superior" rating. We were a Virginia State Honor Band. :cry:

I still get misty when I think about it.

EDIT: The same goes for "Hey Jude" by the Beatles. We had incorporated it into Dargason (in place of the famous Baritone solo at 0:58), which was a huge shock to the judges & is part of the reason why we got such high marks for creativity & score:
