Subject: RE: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
Of course The Monster Mash will always conjure 4:00 a.m. road trips, as that's when the song tends to surface. I also can't hear Janis Joplin without thinking of a journey to Pennsylvania in somebody's tuna boat car, blasting Mercedes Bens out the windows to a very surprised tollbooth operator. And all of us have those songs that are glued to summer/suntan lotion/radios at the beach, such as Wild Thing, Hot Time, Summer in the City, Yellow Submarine, or the Rolling Stones albums my siblings used to blast out the windows while we gardened. Then there is the recording of Cecilia which was the ONLY single one of my camp buddies had for our month at Quinibeck. The single must have had another side, but we certainly never heard it. I am amazed that I can tolerate Paul Simon. Seems to me that, about three years later, I was at music camp with someone else who had a recording of Me and Julio Down By De Schoolyard with the same one-sided trait. I guess when Paul puts ot a single, he puts out a single.
