Yes - both songs that make me sad because of the association and ones that make me happy. "Smile" by Uncle Kracker makes me think of one friend in particular; "That Particular Time" by Alanis Morissette (sp?) is one I still can't listen to.
I most certainly do !! Music has always held an important place in my life and many a song I hear takes me as far back as riding my bike with friends with my radio on my handle bars, singing along with a John Denver song, or taking Eilene for a ride while listening to CCR's "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog", between our going in and out of old abandoned houses, or some memory of being with my brothers and listening to the Hotel California song, Theres a song "Hitching a ride" I hear that reminds me of hitchhiking with my buds after backpacking for 3 days. In fact theres few songs that don't bring back a memory, some sad, but mostly happy memories. Music is great !!!!
I actually associate a song with everyone I meet and become friends with. A couple of months ago I even messaged almost everyone on my friends list on fb and told them what their song was. I think I messaged over 500 people. Each person has their story, so why not a song?
Yes, there is one 'Passion Pit' song that this guy, who grosses me out now, told me he had sex to that song. Now everytime I hear it I get grossed out and change it. What truly sucks is I really liked that song, so now I despise him even more..... don't mess with my music
Then you should phrase the OP: "Post if you do blah blah blah" "No." is a valid answer.
Anyway. Yes. Though I don't get sad anymore, not generally anyway.
Less so than before, but a few songs. Ice by Sarah McLachlan in particular. Reminds me of my first bf. I remember seeing the lyrics in one of his away messages (ah, ye old days of aim ). I was a bit disappointed that he hadn't written them, but it's a very nice song (though history biases me), and it, in a number of ways, is evocative of him. ...and also probably that era of my life.
Tangled Up in Blue was a favorite (I believe The favorite) song of my ex-gf, whom I dated for ~3 years and was very close to. Santa Monica reminds me of someone that would be hard to describe (not a relationship, though, at least semi-abstractly, he touched me in a way). In an Aeroplane Over the Sea reminds me of a very short relationship with a really great guy that I wish I could have become more involved with (I'm pretty sure we both do - I hope so anyway ). It was already a favorite song of mine and was the first indicator that he had really good taste in music! =) I still get playlists he puts together (so I guess a lot of songs are associated with him to some degree).
...The GhostBusters theme song reminds me of me as a kid ... and indirectly me now as well I guess. I think that counts. ...and maybe Calvin and Hobbes, I could see them boogie-ing to that!
