Here’s an oddity. On the face of it, my choice is too fast-paced for lighter-waving, and yet, in my mind, it works perfectly.
Well, this is easy. I can choose almost anything from the UK Top Twenty from the last ten years.
I suppose I should be specific. How about this?
It’s taken a while to think of a fitting tune. I’m sure that’s down to some kind of protective amnesia; my brain refused to think of a mind-sticking song because it didn’t want to be stuck with it. And now I’ve overcome that reluctance, I’ll be singing this damn song for ages. I hope you do to. :P
I’m going to cheat here. This song isn’t about nostaglia per se, it’s about saudade.
Like #8, I have plenty of options here. Should I choose an oldie, a song which lifts my spirits by re-awakening happy memories? Or a newer tune, mentally connected with more up-to-date fun times?
Ah, I know! A song from a couple of years ago, which gets me reminiscing about a road trip across a couple States. We were driving up a slight hill, with wind turbines in the distance, when the first notes drifted from the speakers.
It was a good vacation.
I was roughly thirteen years old, with a bunch of guys of similar age, playing on a construction site, and decided to sing and dance this song while atop a six foot tall stack of bricks. Although it ended badly, with me falling down a gap in the stack, it was a lot of fun. Ah, the happy, carefree days of puberty!
Oh, there’s such a wide choice! How to choose, how to choose? Sit back, relax, and go with my gut instinct.
Once upon a time, I had the perfect tune for sunny-day cruising. And then it was hijacked by less-than-happy associations, so I needed to find another.
Here’s my current share-with-anyone-within-half-a-mile song.
And that’s ‘bout all I have to say about that.
