I could go for days about my love for music, but for now...
I was just looking through something a former "friend" of mine posted on Facebook about Daft Punk. Over the course of said "friendship," I introduced him to the duo. One day we spent about an hour just cuddling up and watching the video story that went along with the Discovery album. But let me not get too nostalgic...I bet he'll always remember who put him on to that, just as I'll remember who put me on to amazing artists like Gnarls Barkley and Kenna.
Every song has a story, even outside of the lyrics. Significant moments happen in our lives. And if you're like me, you'll remember at least one of the songs that were playing during a particular extended moment. Examples: My previous "Sand in My Shoes" post and the significance of "Destiny" by Zero 7 that I briefly mentioned earlier. The latter isn't the best song ever, ("I'm watching porn in my hotel dressing gown" is memorable, but not the best lyrical image) though the chorus speaks volumes:
"When I'm weak, I draw strength from you
And when you're lost, I know how to change your mood
And when I'm down, you breathe life over me
Even though we're miles apart, we are each other's destiny..."
Just a sub-par love song? Not quite so anymore (to me). That's my definition of friendship. The three friends who directly (and indirectly) calmed me down last night...I will never forget what they did for me. Those lines are for them.
Well that's one example of a musical memory. There's many more to come when I feel the need to have you indulge in a few secrets of mine...
