Day 6

A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere

So many many choices here, since I’m one of those people who associates things with other things. For example, the song Blind, by The Talking Heads? Reminds me of that time we were driving back from my cousins’ in Long Island, and it was late at night, I know cause it was summer, and it was dark out. I don’t remember much, but I do remember that specifically. There’s a bunch of songs I can associate with France, either because it was sung at karaoke, or because I was listening to it on my cd player while I rode my bike.

Soul Coughing, in general, reminds me of specific events back in college.

But College was a big deal for me, I remember being there, and enjoying the hell out of myself. Should I have paid more attention to my studies? Yes. Very much yes. But it’s hard t regret a time full of great friends and a lot of laughs, and few frustrations. Even the people I’m not friends with anymore, the people I lost touch with, or had a falling out with, it’s hard for me to be sad or angry about the entire relationship because I had such a good time with them at school, that I can’t help but smile.

In this category, there was place, an on campus apartment, that I hung out at a lot. It was called The Boat, because we were pirates, and I can’t tell you how cool it was that these juniors who I thought were really really cool, deigned to hang out with me, a lowly freshman.

That year there was a snowstorm that gave us a snow day. So a friend of mine, and myself, went over to The Boat, where we watched The Transformers: The Animated Movie (the only Transformers movie, IMO), and one of our friends, the one I had a huge crush on at the time, talked about this song, and its repetitive, yet awesome, nature. As he sang the chorus and performed repetitive movements (such as opening and closing cabinet doors), we were all cracking up. So more than just a place, I remember a time as well, a damn good time, whenever I hear
