Day 3 of the 25 days of 25 songs, today I will share with you a song that reminds me of both of my parents….
You’ve lost that Loving Feeling by The Righteous Brothers
I could have really chosen several hundred songs that would make me think of them. Because of them I was introduced to the world of music. Eclectic tastes is what I have, and it is all due to them. The reason I chose this particular song because of my memories I feel it portrays. My family and I used to go on long car trips, to Malibu, or up the coast in Southern California, lots of different places. My Father always called our random trips a “Serendipity”. We would have CDs in the car but we always had those specific songs we would burst out singing at the top of our lungs to, this song is no exception.
Welcome fellow readers, observers, and listeners.
Today is another “25 songs…” post.
2- A song that reminds you of your most recent ex-boyfriend/ girlfriend
Good Enough by Evanescence
This song has a lot of power to it, even to this day I love it for the way it reflects my deepest soul’s longing to be good enough for the person I love. Though I know this person and I are no longer in those depths of passion and infatuation anymore, this song at the time I heard it was my feelings screaming out for that person. Now this song is really more of a reflection of the kind of person I was rather than how I feel about someone. I was never one of those kind of people who was confident towards the opposite sex. Being horribly introverted, I could never profess anything to really anyone. Hilarious story attached to this song, which is probably why it sticks in my memory so much, I had this song set as the ringtone for my ex before we were together and even before I knew he had the same feelings for me. One day I couldn’t find my phone and had him call it. Not realizing it wasn’t muted, the song blared out at the most profound moment of the song, “…I can’t say no to you and I’ve completely lost myself and I don’t mind, I can’t say no to you, shouldn’t have let you conquer me completely, now I can’t let go of this dream can’t believe that I feel good enough…” at that moment my cards were showing. I tried to play it off like that was my ringtone for everyone. I felt like a creepy dork.
Now I love this song for how it reminds me of beautiful young love, my young sweet self, and how I feel now that I am good enough for someone to love me back just as much as I love them.
Songs for the next 25 days!
How exciting! Especially for this being my first published blog post since, for a long time haha.
Gonna try to add more posts day to day. Look forward to more writing excitements 🙂
Day 01- A song from your childhood
Popsicle Toes by Michael Franks
One of the first songs that really embedded itself into my memory. Long car rides with cassette tapes being jammed into the radio. Michael Franks was my ride along jam companion. My first music addiction, (not excluding Motown). This song takes me down memory lane, and frigid cold toes that I somehow believed he was singing just to me.
