Songs That Make You…

I got it from dslar­too who got it from bird­of­para­dox:

What song…

Reminds you of an ex-lover? “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel. My par­tic­u­lar­ly non-roman­tic ex-SO shocked the heck out of me by send­ing me the lyrics and telling me why they made him think of me.

Reminds you of an ex-friend Neil Dia­mond’s “Red, Red Wine.” My ex-hus­band and Dee (one of my best friends) loved Neil Dia­mond and I could­n’t stand him, par­tic­u­lar­ly that song (I’d heard the more recent reg­gae ver­sion first and that’s how it was “sup­posed to be” in my head). I sent them off to his con­cert togeth­er so I would­n’t have to go. She also liked Cher and went to one of her con­certs while we were liv­ing togeth­er, so Cher’s late ’80s/early ’90s stuff makes me think of Dee, too.

Makes you cry “Life is Eter­nal” by The Flir­ta­tions. Well, it makes me tear up, but I can still sing it. Katie got real­ly attached to that song dur­ing her father’s ill­ness and we played it at the grave­side part of his funer­al service.

Makes you laugh Most any­thing by TMBG and a lot of Moxy Fru­vous’ songs

Makes you wan­na dance Basi­a’s “Time and Tide” because it’s the song that was play­ing when I learned to rhumba.

Reminds you of the one you love “No Mat­ter What Goes Right” by Trout Fish­ing in America

You wish you wrote “Teach Your Chil­dren to Sing” by Schooner Fare

You nev­er want to hear again That Bar­ney song, or “The Song That Nev­er Ends” or “It’s a Small World After All”

You want to get mar­ried to That would depend on the kind of wed­ding we have and what my part­ner want­ed. Songs that come to mind include “Not Too Much to Ask” by Mary Chapin Car­pen­ter, “No Mat­ter What Goes Right” by TFIA, the main theme from The Princess Bride, “Hold­ing Me Tonight” by Car­ly Simon, “Just Because” by Gaia Consort—lots of them.

Sums up your teenage years That would be a lot of dif­fer­ent songs, by every­one from Dan Fogel­berg to PDQ Bach to Bow Wow Wow to Genesis.

You used to hate but now love Can’t think of any. If I hate some­thing, I pret­ty much hate it forever.

You love that you would­n’t know about if it was­n’t for a friend Every­thing Dar Williams has done. Thanks, rasilio.

Reminds you of your first crush Don’t know about the first crush, but “End­less Love” by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross reminds me of my first “real” boyfriend.

Makes you think of the moon “Just Because” by Gaia Consort

Makes you think of stars “Don’t Let the Stars Get In Your Eye­balls” by Trout Fish­ing in Amer­i­ca is the only song that comes to mind when I think of stars. Well, oth­er than “Twin­kle, Twinkle.”

Makes you think of the sun Many of Mike Ray­burn’s songs, now, because I have such good mem­o­ries of hear­ing them at a con­cert on the beach at Pine Lake.

Makes you think of the night “Blue Cham­pagne” by Man­hat­tan Transfer

Makes you think of sex “Pos­ses­sion” by Sarah McLach­lan. Actu­al­ly, most of that CD.

Makes you think of being alone A lot of Melis­sa Ethridge’s songs, although that’s start­ing to change a lit­tle since sam­bear likes them too. I encoun­tered her music as I was sep­a­rat­ing from my ex-hus­band and he absolute­ly hat­ed her stuff.

You love to hear at clubs It’s been so long since I’ve been to a club that I can’t answer this one.

Has only been released recent­ly but you love already I’m not real­ly a “new releas­es” gal. I don’t lis­ten to com­mer­cial radio much at all, so I sel­dom know what’s been released recent­ly. But I do like Bon­nie Rait­t’s new CD Sil­ver Lining
