This is the beginning of something of an ambitious project for me. We all have songs that mean something to us in some significant way; songs that were playing during seminal moments in our lives, songs that remind us of someone or even songs from movies or advertising that strike us in a particular way.
I’ve always thought that people’s associations with songs were really interesting, I’ve heard some amazing stories in my time about the memories that people link to songs so I want to document some of these diverse stories as best I can.
From a personal perspective I’m going to write a weekly post about a song that means a lot to me in some way but I’m also going to get some insight from friends, family and other pleasant folks about the music that holds a significance for them.
