Songs for people

Ever had a song that reminds you of a specific person? I sure do. From important people to moments of my life, music has helped define my memories over the years, and a tune can make my mind wander back through the years and rememeber things both wonderful and sad. Some exaples are:

You've got a friend in me (Toy Story) Makes me think of my little Sis. A friend who should have been family.

Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett) All the old New Haven group. From JA to Genetic Freak to M&M to Dw..., and all of our nights drinking.

Here Comes the Sun (Beatles) My Bro and I would sit and listen to this all night till the sun rose.

Love Me Tender (Elvis) I sometimes will do my Elvis impersination on Babushka's voice mail.

I'll melt with you (Mest) BM and the Hottie danced to this at thier wedding and it now always brings back memories of how damn happy they were that day.

Angel (Sarah Mclugghlin) The Demon used to sing this to me everytime it came on. Somewhere I have a tape of her singing it.

She Blinded me with Science (Thomas Dolby) The Ant used to run around the house yelling SCIENCE! as I would just sit and laugh at her

Love will Keep us Alive (Eagles) Isis, what else can I say. Now that we're apart it still brings me close to tears.

Fall Back Down (Rancid) Makes me think of all of you out there in Bloggerland. So many times now when things go bad your there to help me back on my feet.

I Want Out (Helloween) Back in High School Static made me a tape with this on it and it always makes me remember us in remidial gym class.

Just a Jigalo (David Lee Roth) Years of picking on my sisters boyfriend with this song and I can still make her laugh by singing it.

Pick-up Man (Joe Diffie) I can still see Cowboy Bob everytime this song plays.

Inmates (Alice Cooper) Yeah Ug, in the end we are stuck in a giant insane asylum called Earth and the inmates are running things.

Bat Out of Hell (Meatloaf) I danced and sang this with Roe-Roe at a valentines dance once. We knocked em dead that night sweetie.

Yes there's more, and I may print them someday, but it's late, and although I may not be able to sleep I still get fuzzy headed at night (And fuzzy faced all the time, hehehehe.)
So what songs make you think of someone?

Oh gosh, you are so onto something here, songs remind me of so many people in my life... they are countless..
several sarah m songs remind me of people...
then there is the high school b/f and our song - so cheesy- 'almost paradise'... remember that one and it ended up to be the 'prom theme' song...
some counting crows remind me of a beach trip and a romance...
oh and some break up songs just still kill me when I hear them...
songs really do mean a lot...

"Unbreak My Heart"
by Tony Braxton. Brings a lot of memories in my life.

Burfica, I have a video tape of AC/DC that I bought a few years ago. They were in some concert. I like the song
"You Shook Me All Night Long"
"Highway To Hell"
I know that doesn't sound like me.

'Wild thing' by..some band...reminds me of this dude called Jim who sang it on a boat in Greece, and I filmed it. Same goes with Ronan Keating's 'the smile on your face...'

Ech. Cheesy. Anyway...

Do I have a song? That song: "in a hurry to get things done..." "...rush and rush until life's no fun" you know the one... that makes me think of you. Mostly because I love the song and I love you and you put it ona mix tape you made for me once long long ago... But also cause if you replace "rush" with "worry", well, there you go.

Also: I don't know why you aren't getting my emails. I saved the last one on my account so I have proof! I've just barely missed 2 calls from you- one I had to run out of the bedroom cause M was sleeping and by the time I hit the button you were in VM... the other time I was being tortured at the dentist. That was Monday. Both times I tried to call you back, once within 30 seconds, and Monday about a half hour later... and there was no answer at the number you called me from on my caller id. When you leave me a message, tell me when I can call back! And where!

Love you FuzzyMan!

Anything by The The makes me think of my friend from high school, Keely.

American Woman makes me think of a student of mine, Trey, who got killed in a car accident. (He used to sing that song all the time.)

Jump by Van Halen makes me think of the jerk who took my virginity.

You're in my Heart by Rod Stewart makes me think of my hubby.

Dang, I could go on forever with this... many songs make me think of certain people and times. Great blog!
