Deep Thoughts On Music

The other day as I was driving home from work,
I heard the Pearl Jam song "Black" on the radio.
As I listened to the song,
it made me think of my friend Richard.
The next song I heard was by Smashing Pumpkins.
Immediately I thought of my older brother Ryan.
Isn't it strange how we associate music with
people, places, and times in our lives?
Any song from Air Supply or the Beatles is my Mom.
Any song from the Beach Boys is my Dad.
Lady Gaga's song "Alejandro" reminds me of my son Andrew. :)
(Thank you for reminding me Andrew).
Give me a person, place or time in my life,
and I will name you a song.

I totally agree with you on Richard and Ryan. If I were to name a band for you it would be Men at Work. Am I right? Did you like them back in the day? I have a tendency to make up memories and block others:)

Hope I can see you for dinner when Tiff is here!

Yes...I love Men at Work. If I had to pick a song for you it would be In Your Eyes by Peter Gabriel or Any Neil Diamond song.
