One thing I always liked about music for me was its ability to trigger memories from the moment the opening riffs of a particular song hits me. I always believed that if I ever joined “Name That Tune”, I’d probably be one of the best contestants ever precisely because of this.
If you ever watched “Slumdog Millionaire”, it was interesting how the lead character’s life seemed to flash right before his eyes with each key question asked. That, to me, was really interesting, because I tend to feel the same way whenever I hear certain songs play. I’m strongly reminded of people, places, events, even scents.
Here’s a song that reminds me of one of my best friends: Clair Ching. I remember that we nudged her to sing this song during the time she and her current boyfriend, JM, weren’t together yet. Needless to say, I think the JGL’s nudging really helped her in a bit, although she’d probably never admit to that. :P
Let me say it out loud: videoke rules, and with this song, there were two less lonely people in the world. Hee.
I think I’ll stick to one song for today, if only for the fact that I realized it’s been ages since I last wrote about Clair. :P
