Just an FYI.. the commentary for this song choice may not be child friendly ;P
The prompt is a song that reminds you of a certain event.
What this reminds me of is… the first opportunity that Daniel and I had to somewhat explore our physical relationship. The rest of the group had gone out to the movies and we were home with Neil’s ex-wife and kids (who actually were kids at that stage). She was watching Blue Heelers on TV and we were snuggled on one couch but soon moved into the dining room type place so we wouldn’t disturb her. We did try to go into the bedroom where Daniel was staying only to somewhat frustratedly realise that Matthew and Ashley were already asleep in there. ;) (Cockblocking already and they weren’t even my siblings yet!) So instead we sat down at the table and Daniel tried to show me some of his music on his CD walkman thingy. Hands may have wandered and we may have bordered on what was appropriate for a not exactly private location ;)
The sixth prompt is a song that reminds you of somewhere.
This song reminds me of the job I had while I was in school. I worked in a supermarket, initially on the registers and then afterwards in the deli. Most of the time in the deli I worked with a girl called Gloria who was a year younger than me. We got along very well and chatted and joked together in the quiet times when there were no customers and we were tidying or arranging stuff or whatever. Sometimes we sang along with the radio which was always on over the loudspeaker throughout the whole store. This song was very new at the time and quite popular so it was getting played several times a day at one point. She liked to say the words along with the spoken opening part of the song. And so every time I hear this song it takes me back to that fragrant deli with Gloria pretending to be famous while she sliced up proscuitto and jarlsberg.
Shake a Tail Feather
This is what I came up with for a song that makes you sad. You may wonder what about this song is sad.. well, nothing exactly. But it’s what I associate it with that makes me sad. This song brings one of my earliest memories to my mind and what I think is possibly the last memory I have with both of my parents in it. It was my birthday, and on the way to school my dad and I stopped in to visit my mum. This song played on the radio and it was specially for me. (Whether or not it actually was especially for me, I’m not sure.. but I know I believed it to be.) I think it’s likely to have been my 5th birthday so this would have been about 6 months before my dad died.
Today’s topic is a song that makes you happy. There are a lot of songs that could be used to fill this description. I have gone with Sunchyme by Dario G. There’s nothing meaningful in the lyrics, you can just sing along from the get go and the beat and tune are upbeat and energising.
