Notes to Remember....

This was a real fun meme... and I must thank Loz of Sunrays and Saturdays - An Ordinary Life as well as Midlife - A Journey for bringing back such fun memories...

I'm cheating we are supposed to list 5-10 songs but it was getting so difficult that I bend the rules a bit was tempted to list sooo many more.

[in random order]
1. Innocent Man - Billy Joel
This is one of the first songs hubby had given me... it was in a cassette and only this song repeated again and again

2. Summer of ‘69 - Bryan Adam & Boys of Summer by Don Henley
I remember drives with friends... hanging out the car window, driving by the beach and singing these songs at the top of our voices

3. Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
Looking back, the angst of those times amuses me - I remember how 'The Wall' use to be my fallback for all the times I was depressed or angry. I'd lock myself in my room and just listen to it and would feel better by the end of it.

4. Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum
There used to be this guy who was in a band and he had a crush on me so would make me really nice tapes and the original version of this song was in one of them

5. Slave To Love/ Jealous Guy - Bryan Ferry
91/2 weeks...and other memories I'd never want to forget...

6. Wicked Game - Chris Isaak
A little high...a little crazy, a little adventurous

7. "Something So Right" (Annie Lennox with Paul Simon)
I have such a vivid memory of this song - we were all at a friends house - I had just met hubby-to-be and this song played. The back story to it is that I used to think that song was about me, and that it described me perfectly [I was such a drama queen].

8. With or Without you:
The first time I broke someone's heart... not a good memory. But love this song

9. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
This song reminds me of the time that I liked someone who was way too older than me and I was too young... but well what are we to do?

10. Then He Kissed Me
We had bought this Karoake thingy at home and a group of friends would get together and make total fools of ourselves

11. Brain Damage - Pink Floyd
Smoke filled room.... a huge screen and lots of people in varying states of inebriation

12. Night Swimming - REM
At the beach at night.... very literal

13. Fragile - Sting
My cousin and I had made this alternative dance for this song for another cousin's wedding or something.

And since I have been tagging people left right and centre, I'll leave this open to choice. If anyone would like to participate that'd be great...

I have always loved Bryan Ferry and Roxy Music. Slave To Love always reminds me of the movie "9 1/2 Weeks" - which I also loved.

I love Billy Joel and play very bad harmonica to a piano man rendition. Annie Lennox, Bryans Ferry and Adams, and, Don Henley. All great choices. Thanks for playing.
