Musical Memories


I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about today, but then something happened. I was putting out some cans for recycling and a car drove by with music blasting out of the windows. The song? “Oh What a Night” by the Four Seasons. This song makes me think of Son1, turning it up in his new car, and dance-driving while singing it at the top of his lungs. He was trying to make me laugh and it worked. But it is a very STRONG memory. I remember what he was wearing, where we were, and the smell of KFC (we were passing one). This made me wonder what other songs I have associated with memories. And I’d like you to answer too. Ready for a trip down memory lane?

1.  What is your earliest musical memory? (NOT Happy Birthday,lullabies, or nursery rhymes!)  I was 6 or 7 and the ‘big girls’ two doors down from me were practicing dancing in the garage. The song was “Can’t Hurry Love” by the Supremes. I was shy because they were all so much older than I was. (They were only about 13-14.) But they invited me in to hang. That was cool.

2.   What music was playing when you lost your virginity? (or another song you associate with sex) “Aqualung” by Jethro Tull was on the stereo. (Romantic,huh?)

3.   What is the first song you knew all the words to?  “Joy to The World(Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog)” by Three Dog Night. I remember swinging in a playground with my best friend Brendan. I was 7. That was the year he moved away. It was summer. It was hot. And he talked me into “parachuting” off the swing.That’s a good memory.

4.   What song brings on a strong teen hang-out memory?  Queen’s “We Will Rock You”. Frank would blast it out his window while we sat outside of his house or in the park next door.And when that was over, he would put on the Moody Blues “Knights in White Satin”

5.   What music did you dance to at your wedding? (For those not married, what did you dance to at your prom?) Hubs and I danced to Roberta Flack’s “First Time(Ever I Saw Your Face)”. I don’t know how long that song actually is, but IT’S TOO FUCKING LONG WHEN PEOPLE ARE WATCHING YOU DANCE!!!!

6.   Have you ever had a song in your dream and remembered it after waking up? Somewhere around the age of 12, I had a dream that I was asleep in the backseat in the car with my family. We were coming home from Mom-Mom’s house. As we passed the cemetery down the street we were in an accident and the car hit a tree. “Abraham, Martin, and John” was on the radio. Everytime I hear that song I get creeped out even though the accident was only a dream.

So there you have it. There are other details involved  in those memories, but that would be too much to post. Besides, I’m NOT giving the details to when I lost my virginity!

    I gave up my ‘woman card’ as far as hating to shop…now I have to give it up again. I suck at remembering songs. The only 2 I remember is 1. sitting at a friend’s house singing Kodachrome…and 2. 2 guys that were friends, being with me the first time my ex had visitation, singing “Oh Sherry” in PERFECT harmony.

    That’s all I have…………..

    Aqualung, eh? Perhaps the phallic look of the flute makes you hot. Cheers!!

    How fun was this!! Maybe it is because music is my life! Maybe I should do this on my blog. However, I can already tell you that Bon Jovi & Led Zepplin make up the majority of my list that I would remember from those questions. lol
