Music

So I'm a huge sucker for movie music & musicals (I'll politely wait for everyone to recover from their dead faint.) Seriously. I shoulda been a gay man I love em so much...and Sondheim...Sondheim baby! There is some music I listen to over and over and over and over until I am completely saturated through and then have to put it away for a while.
When I pull them out again after a long haitus it's amazing the memories that come crashing back.

For instance: Anastasia throws me back into Christmas time when I was in 1st year at Sheridan. Titanic used to that as well but I have since listened to it in enough different contexts that the association is much diminished.

Passion reminds me of...well. Passion reminds me of a lot of things.

Or the other day I had songs from this ancient record of Babes in Toyland we had growing up. It featured such showstoppers as "I Can't (is that Can?) Do the Sum," and "I've Got the Milk of Human Kindness." WHY pray tell did I have the songs from a record I never found particularly compelling even with I was SIX going through my head? Not A Clue.

I find it interesting that music has such power to evoke such powerful feelings. It's not unlike long forgotten scents stimulating lizard brain memory.

So I'm curious. What music brings back what memory for you?

    I miss the long form writing I used to do with my life. I should get back to it. Is anyone still here?

    Got a notice that if I don't do a post every so often they'll delete my LJ account. I'd rather that not happen.
