The one we used to hear when we used to get along.
I think it is kind of funny how we tend to have “our” songs. It was a song we sang together, and in some ways, really was significatory of our relationship. We both knew it, and we both acknowledged it. It really was “our” song.
I heard it on the radio this morning as I drove to work, and I couldn’t help but start singing it. It was only the ending chorus, but it really brought memories of us back. For the longest time, if I even heard the opening of that song, I would have to turn it off. Its been a couple years since I was like that. That’s healing, I suppose.
Today I sang along, and smiled for that little bit of time, remembering the good times, and not the bad.
Yesterday I heard the song I have come to associate with our breakup, and I sang along to that, too. It reminds me of it, but no longer does it pang like it once did, and more readily do I sing it, not as a breakup, but merely as a song.
I write about music a lot, though I am not so interested in it philosophically in strictly the academic sense. I just enjoy it, and like talking about it. Music becomes associated with memories, with hard times, and with good times. Off the top of your head, what is a song that you associate with good times or bad times in your life?
