Songs and music… is magical. For me, certain songs will conjure up different memories… fond ones, sad ones… It even has the power to "transport" me to a different time and place altogether. And of course it is known to be able to alter moods… Listening to one right now, I feel like sharing a few of my favorite (and not) and related memories attached to them.
1. Uninvited by Alanis Morisette
This would bring me back to Melaka when I first set foot on MMU. It was a such, such dark age… I refuse to recall. I just can’t listen to this song.
2. Drops of Jupiter by Train
Falling by McAlmont and Butler
This would remind me of my friend June. Because she introduced me to these two songs and I’m like hooked.
3. Take My Breath Away by Berlin
Glory of Love by Peter Cetera
I don’t know about you.. but I loved Peter Cetera and all the Chicago songs. Child of the 80s, I grew up listening to them. Anyway, these two songs are soundtrack of the movies Top Gun and Karate Kid II. And these were among first the movies that I watched at the cinema when I was in the States. I was in awe… wayang Mat Salleh cool gila, unlike in Malaysia. But of course that was two decades ago. Now we have TGV, GSC and even the latest Cathay Cineleisure.
4. Rindu Padanya by Camelia
When I was in college, there was a guy I really, really, really liked. At first I just liked chatting with him… then subconsciously became a crush… and later without me even realizing, it became an infatuation. Serious. I was like what, head over feet? But he didn’t know about it. Never knew, I think. Would anything ever sparked between us? I doubt it. Anyway, this song was like my life anthem then. My thoughts are of him every time I heard this song. Still are, actually. But he’s married, and I am now in ♥ with my husband. So, there….
5. Drowning by Backstreet Boys
(Yes, I listen to BSB. I used to listen to Spice Girls too… and I love Paris Hilton songs as well…) So back to Drowning. I ♥ this song… and one day during my Bomba Module in KKB, I had just finished a meal. Entah lunch ke dinner ke breakfast… Anyway, the TV was playing the vidoe clip of this song. I was there with Cik Nik, and she liked the song too. We stayed in the dining hall and sang to the song until the end. So, everytime I hear this song now, I would be reminded of that moment and of Cik Nik.
