It's all in a song.


Ever notice that there is a song that can remind you of everything your trying to forget? It doesn't even have to be a good song, but it can just flood the memories back to you and leave you cursing up a storm in your car. Hopefully your windows will be closed when this happens so the poor lady waiting at the light next to you won't call the cops. lol.

The weirdest thing happened to me today. I was driving along, trying to not think of things, and I decided to change my radio station. Then BAM! my song that reminds me of everything about a certain boy was actually on. *Cough* The Mess *Cough* Now this song is a soundtrack to a certain movie that's from the 80's that seems to plague me where ever I go. I have NEVER heard it on a radio before past the 3rd movie, which I think was in 1990. lol. When I first met him, I actually quoted the movie to him, not knowing it was his favorite & he was like "How did you know I liked that movie??". Well I didn't know, it was just one of my favorites too. BUT it's a song that NO ONE ever plays on the radio. I guess it was because it was the request hour on the station so someone in the world requested it to make my life a living hell for the rest of the day. BUT...

But, alas, I didn't text the "I miss you" I wanted to do ever so badly. I hope in the end this is a good thing. I really don't want to leave, but I just can't stay. I actually watched the movie, "Vanilla Sky" today on BRAVO and realized I don't want to be Cameron Diaz's character in the first part of the movie. If you've seen the movie you'll understand a 100%.

I just can't believe that song played on the radio. Geez. Just my luck.

Ironically today, after all this rush of memories, an ex talked to me. His story of him & I is for another day, but it's just weird that a random ex imed me and asked me to dinner. Oh yeah about 2 years ago this week we had met too, so I guess it's an anniversary of when we first got together. I declined for now because I was too taken aback that he asked me out as friends or I'm not exactly sure.

Why is it that drama all has to be on the same day? I told this ex to call me in the future, but yeah that story of him & let's call him Drummer Boy is for a later post because I'm too torn to even think clearly on him.

The song "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia is a perfect "This is my mood" now song. Wouldn't that be a cool option for something? Instead of the faces showing your mood, you can pick a song. hmmmm.....

Are their songs that when you hear them it just brings you back to that time? That time when you were happy or sad?

This week had a weird close. Geez. I hadn't seen this one coming. It all can come back to ya, like that Celine Dion song. lol. I think you can almost always relate things to a song. I guess that's why I love good music so much & actually pay attention to lyrics. Amazing lyrics are my favorite part of music.

I'm going to leave you guys tonight with a video from one of my favorite songs. I feel like the girl he is singing about some days. I love how he calls this girl, "Cinderella". I remembered it a few days ago & thought maybe someone else would like to re-hear it too. It's "One Headlight" by The Wallflowers. Enjoy.

Oh love this song, thanks for the clip!

Yeah songs totally take me back to a place or time, it's so strange. Sometimes it's good othertimes not so good. But hey that's life right.

Hang in there sweetie,
xoxo

"One Headlight " is one of my favourite songs!

I'm like you with music bringing back memories. Except they never bring out anger in me, just tears sometimes over days that once were. I'm incredibly sentimental that way. A big suck sometimes. lol

Music can be a very powerful thing.

Steph said...

I found you over on Novelista's blog just now, was skimming your post and I just happen to be listening to One Headlight :o) Strange coincidence!

Mrs. Cullen said...

You know how some songs you listen to too much and then you hate them for a while and then you love them again? One Headlight is totally back on the listening to and loving list.

Music is always very powerful, it can really bring back strong memories of times. It took me a little while to really understand though that its a good thing because it shows care, the ability to be sentimental and good times.

I always think that its a privilege to be able to have strong emotions evoked by wonderful music!

Wow, now THIS song brings back lots of memories. Haha. Great post. And so coincidental for a couple reasons.
First, I was just talking to Rian last night about how random songs bring back very vivid memories for me. And the most random memories too. Like some Genesis song came on the radio earlier that week and BAM all of the sudden I was riding in the car with my dad at five years old in downtown Chicago. It was so eery. I could even remember what he was wearing and where we were going. Strange...does stuff like that ever happen to you too?
Secondly, I had a very similar experience to you about three days ago. I was driving in the mall parking lot, listening to my ipod, when Britney Spears' "From the Bottom of My Broken Heart" (you can laugh at me) came on. It reminded me of my first love and I started bawling. Near the end of the song, I heard some honking and driving in the other lane was none other than HIM, my ex. The one I had been sobbing about. Wtf?! So yeah, I know exactly how you feel...its sort of odd how fate works out.

And um Jakob Dylon=YUMMY! ;)

Music is so powerful. I agree with you that it is in the lyrics. They can bring a tear on even the happiest of days and a smile on the saddest. Hope you hear songs that bring smiles from now on.

Heather Rose said...

Love Jacob Dillan. Love One Headlight. Love that you're being tough, and holding out on the emotional texts. I think you'll be glad you followed your head, not your heart on this one.

For sure!!! Songs, together with perfumes, can bring vivid memories to my mind of things I believed forgotten, their power is unbelievable!

DesBisoux said...

Mag- Even after 6 years I still can't listen to "Love song" by The Cure or 311 & can't listen to "I hate you" by Three Days Grace. Your not alone girl.

S.Elisabeth said...
