Sometimes, like for example the song you danced with your wife to at your wedding or the one playing the first time you got a kiss, get attached with a memory.
Other times, the songs are less one memory and rather the “song of their time”... Just a song that just reminds you of an entire period of your life.
But then there are those songs that for whatever reason gets attached to an emotion- most typically love or lovelorn- that seem to make the most impact.
Here is one of mine…
“Could Have Been…”
This teenage break up song should be connected to some broken heart that I suffered at the hands of a careless 10 year girl going all willie nillie with the kisses in the woods next to my house.
But alas, it isn’t…
It has no actual connection to my real life in any way.
This song is connected to my brain because one night I was watching an episode of Growing Pains (the one where Mike Seaver watched his dream woman toss pizzas in sexy super slo-mo while this tear jerking little number is playing in the background) and to this day whenever I see this song I get a little choked up as thought I had missed out on something.
And I wonder why it took me so long to have any success with women…
This is Tiffany, “Could Have Been…”
