Tunes #6-10

#6: A Song that Reminds Me of Somewhere
Wouldn't It Be Good by Danny Hutton Hitters. This song reminds me of Elsey 3rd North at good old FC. I played this song over and over and over from August-October of 1997. I was a new RA in college, had my own little dorm room, and wore out this tape from playing and rewinding (tapes! wow, I feel old.)

#7: A Song that Reminds Me of a Certain Event
Dreams by Van Halen. I'm not a huge fan of VH, but Eric is, and he insisted that Dreams be the last song that played at our wedding reception. I will forever remember Eric and his best man drunkenly embracing each other, and then the best man climbed onto the luggage cart and demanded to be taken to his room. What a night.

#8: A Song I Know All the Words To
I have one of those freakish memories where I can remember the words of just about every song I hear (yet can't remember what I did 10 minutes ago). But this one has a story... Losing My Religion by REM. I know all the real words, but I also remember the words to a song we made up to the melody at Band Camp, in 8th grade.

#9: A Song I Can Dance To
Destroy Everything You Touch by Ladytron. This song takes me back to Heroes in Boston, the best dance night EVER.

#10: A Song From My Favorite Band.
Hey! by The Pixies. Picking a favorite band is tough. But I think I'll go with The Pixies. I spent most of the summer before I went to college listening to The Pixies and playing Solarian on my huge PowerMac. For variety and listenability, you can't beat The Pixies.

I'm laughing at the Pretty in Pink reference and simultaneously feeling ancient. (Because I WAS IN COLLEGE WHEN THE MOVIE CAME OUT!!!) I also had this soundtrack on cassette (it was the '80s) and between us, my college roomie and I killed it. I love this song but think my fave was Suzanne Vega's "Left of Center."

I now own it on CD and have it on my iPod. ;-)
