The thing is that nearly all songs remind me of someone or the other, my music collection being built almost entirely from donations and recommendations. My people/place/sound/feeling associations are usually keen, so there are hundreds of songs with bits of history attached to them. It gives me the privilege of choosing the one among them I’d prefer to archive.
So… this song that I have of late come to love. This particular Youtube video. (It’s not a real music video, I suspect the song doesn’t have one.)
Given to me exactly a month ago so I’m not sure if it qualifies as a reminder, but this song will continue to remind me of the person, the moment, the things that went through my head at that point and the little knot in my stomach — that was a memory point being created and I’m usually never incorrect about such things.
Of the little ironies of the song and the situation, I’m sure a mostly-public blog is not the best place to ponder.
