So, I’ve decided to do this facebook 30 Day Song Challenge (you can see previous days here)thing and I figured I’d do it here on ninebullets. Feel free to contribute your thoughts in the comments section. So, without further ado:
DAY 07: A SONG THAT REMINDS YOU OF A CERTAIN EVENT:
This one is easy. When I turned 16 I was unleashed upon the world with a 1800 pound torpedo (car) and a license to man it. Well, as 16 year olds are prone to do, I drove it at high speeds while listening to music at high volumes. And, as 16 year olds are also prone to do, one night, whilst driving at a very high rate of speed and listening to music at high volumes, I attempted to occupy a space that was already occupied by another car.
The collision itself has been saved in my memory in as a collection of snapshots rather than a moving memory. Car, brakes, collision, other car’s rear wheels up on the hood of my car, broken brake lights, bloody hand, smoke from skidding tires and then stillness. I was in a complete daze and confused having never been in a car accident but I clearly remember that when I went back to get the keys out of the car the tape player was dutifully playing this song at very high volume. Now, whenever I hear the song I think back to that night and remember how amazed I was that the tape player was still playing like nothing had even happened.
What song reminds you of a certain event?
