Thread Name: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
Subject: RE: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
Fleetwood Mac's Rhiannon, a song that I couldn't listen to for years and still brings a tears to my eyes that was popular and I always associated with a dear friend, who disappeared on a fishing boat with her husband and other family members, in a storm off the coast of B.C.... especially the lines "taken by the wind" and "taken by the sky". I have lost other friends over the years but for some reason or other this loss, circumstance and song always hits me the hardest.

When I was four I had a little red record player and in my collection of little red and yellow records was a children's song with the line " and darn my old Daddy as if he were socks". I loved to sing it at the top of my lungs. I thought I was swearing at my Dad and it was a very liberating feeling for a four year to somehow be allowed to do this with impunity.
