    Day 5 - Song Which Reminds You Of Someone

    The Police - Every Breath You Take

    Link to video.

    Was played at my mum's funeral, so it tends to make me think about her when I hear it.

    Day 06, a song that reminds you of somewhere

    Rock This Town - Brian Setzer


    Link to video.

    My high school jazz band played this as our finale. I played bass, but my two best friends (who played guitar and drums) were much better than me; in fact they were ridiculously good, and the three of us would trade solos towards the end of it, which was some exciting stuff to do live.

    Day 06, A song that reminds you of somewhere
    The Hockey Theme by Dolores Claman
    More to the point, the theme of Hockey Night in Canada. HNIC was on every Saturday evening throughout my childhood, and when I hear it I think of the livingroom (and Don Cherry constantly interrupting poor Ron MacLean).

    Bah! Songs don't remind me of places...

    In a similar vein to above, the Vancouver Canucks, for most of my childhood, skated out before games to U2's Where The Streets Have No Name. When I hear that song it takes me back to sitting inside GM Place for preseason games. I Couldn't find a good video, so no video for today.

    Day 06, A Song Which Reminds You of a Place

    Again, another entry which I'm making up on the spot since I don't have strong musical associations for places.

    Mahler's Second Symphony, 3rd Movement

    I cannot count the number of times this was stuck in my head in Vienna.

    Little bit of catch up.

    Day 5 - A Song That Reminds You Of Someone.


    Link to video.

    Stereolab - We're Not Adult Oriented.

    Reminds me of my best mate at uni. We were up one night watching a music video song and this came on and we were both hooked straight away.

    Day 6 - A Song That Reminds you of Somewhere


    Link to video.

    Blur - Song 2

    Everytime I hear this song takes me back to the Reading Festival in 1999, when they were they final act. Hearing 30,000 people screaming out woo hoo at the top of their lungs was an awesome experience.

    Day 06, Song That Reminds You of Somewhere

    Cliffs of Dover - Eric Johnson

    Whenever I hear this song, I think of Colombia. Like, the South American country. I have absolutely no idea why. I've never been particularly interested in Colombia, and I've definitely never been there. It's not like I was listening to EJ when reading about the place or something. Completely baffling.

    :dunno:

    Jumping in a bit late, but...

    Day 01, Your Favorite song

    Mastodon - Blood and Thunder

    Hands down the best metal track of the last ten years.

    Day 02, Your Least Favorite Song

    Sandi Thom - I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker

    The very epitome of confused poseurdom.


    Day 03, A Song That Makes You Happy

    The Real McKenzies - Pour Decisions

    A great one to jig too, especially if your got your kilt about you.

    Day 04, A Song That Makes You Sad

    The Corries - Loch Lomond

    Not particularly unique, but, well, it's a sad bloody song. :dunno:


    Day 05, A Song That Reminds You of Someone

    Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard - Now We Are Free

    Reminds me of my girlfriend, because when we saw Gladiator together she spend the entire length of this song sobbing onto my shoulder.


    Day 06, A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

    Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood

    Reminds me of the Isle of Arran, because when I was holiday on there about ten years ago it was on the radio all the damn time.

    Day 6 - A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

    Birds of Tokyo - Silhouettic

    Link to video.

    Nothing much to this one. Seen BoT a couple of times live, this is my favourite song of theirs, and I can't think of any songs that really remind me of anywhere in particular.

    Day 07, a song that reminds you of a certain event

    I Want Love (Silent Hill 3 OST) - Akira Yamaoka


    Link to video.

    My aforementioned best friends no longer talking to me. It also has a really deep meaning to me for reasons I can't really say, but this lyric always kills me:

    Man, I forgot about this most excellent thread idea after I posted that initial question. Hope it doesn't screw things up if I start late.

    Day 01 - your favorite song

    Impossible choices already?!? I can't define a single all time favorite (I don't rank music on a linear scale) but I'll pick one of my longtime favorites. :)

    The Bad Plus - Dirty Blonde

    This is a Reid Anderson (bass) composition off their second major-label album, Give. Dramatic, intense, somehow evocative of arena rock, Broadway showtunes, and classical music all at the same time.

    Day 5 - Song Which Reminds You Of Someone

    Christ, this and day 6 are the hardest. I try not to associate songs with people, even less with places. :mad:

    Paraf - Nikad Nikad Nikad

    Link to video.

    This reminds me of Virote !

    Day 6 - A Song that Reminds You of Somewhere

    Crippled Black Phoenix - Of A Lifetime

    Link to video.

    Reminds me of a certain place ...

    Day 07, Song that reminds you of a certain event
    Nightswimming by R.E.M.
    Nightswimming reminds me of my last birthday. I'd never been depressed about aging before, and that year it kinda hit me that I'm getting older (not old, older!).

    Day 7: Event

    I also find this one perplexingly difficult. I think music is predominantly mental for me or something. I don't really connect songs to anything but ideas and emotions.

    The album version of song (which apparently EMI won't let Youtube show) reminds me of a pretty important event in my mid-youth. Typical melodramatic crush related stuff typical of that age, but an event that I still remember pretty well to this day.

    Isn't it a bit tautological to say that an event reminds you of itself?

    Day 07, Song That Reminds You of an Event

    Steh auf, wenn du am Boden bist - Die Toten Hosen

    Reminds me of a somewhat more difficult time in my life, when I needed to just keep on keepin' on. And I did.
