    I Always Have

     Even from when i was in kindergarden, i'd remember songs playing when mom would take me to school, and the music would be playing. Just different instances i would remember songs ..and i could tell u the year they came out-because of my music/time association.

    The Most Beautiful Thing...

    Is listening to songs and feeling them... allowing them to bring back so many sensations and memories. Giving me confidence for the future and putting me in a better  mood. Music says things to me that words cannot... I love it!

    Sad Moments, Mostly...

    Whether I love or hate a song is closely linked to what happened at the time I first heard the song or an event or a period in my life. I remember the first time I watched Titanic. It was Christmas Day, my mum's birthday in 1997. I didn't really understand it but I cried that...

    Hand In Glove!

    To me, they go hand in hand, or indeed 'Hand in Glove' ;-) I have many songs that remind me of people and places, some good, many bittersweet, but music evokes feeling and emotion like nothing else.

    Opeth In The Rain

    I attach people and memories and even mindsets to music. When I listen to those songs afterwards I can relive it, feel it, become it again.Opeth takes me back to when I was still in high school. I recall sitting in the pouring rain for hours, repeatedly listening to the Damnation...

    Leave By Jojo

    I used to sing songs like Leave by JoJo with "erin" substituted for you because she was a good friend of mine who I used to jest with a lot. Other songs simply remind me of people who liked them.

    Cannot Generalize It

    When Rolling Stone magazine gave their opinion on the best song ever, they chose Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone". I thought WTF? To me music is a very personal experience cuz everyone has a special memory attached to songs, so you really can't vote on the best song EVER...

    Memory Lane

    Almost every single song on my ipod is there because it reminds me of a time past, or someone dear to me. Music is very much tied to memory for me.
