Just read Nick Hornby's 31 songs and while I'm not overly impressed by it (it was ok in parts), it sorta got me thinking about how music and songs influence my moods (or more often my moods strongly influence my music, although, this is true of almost everyone) and often strongly relate to memories I have.
So I'm going to try to pick a song for the day as often as I can, maybe it will be a song for the period, or song of the week, it depends on how my routine and access to boards is.
So basically this is a thread for anyone who wants to post a song that has meant something particular to them today, or that they've just remembered.
For me, it won't be a song for the day ahead, but a song for the day that just passed or for a moment or feeling that recently struck. Hopefully Lucutus will sticky it.
I'm not going to post an essay here for each song, that'd be self indulgent and monopolising bandwidth in the forum, so I'll post the song and if anyone cares about the essay I'll link it to my journal where I'll write the meaning behind the song. Hopefully others will do the same
I don't expect everyone to like the same music I do, or even take the same meanings, but hopefully, if this works, we'll all get to hear some new tunes at the very least.
