Subject: RE: Songs w/mental or emotional associations
There's so many...."Feild behind the plow" is dedicated to my dad forever in my mind even tho he was an ontario dairy farmer, not a prairie farmer....similarily, "Lies" also by Stan Rogers makes me think of my mom, especially those lines,
"So this is beauty's finish, Like Rodin's "Belle Heaulmiere", the pretty maiden trapped inside the ranch wife's toil and care. Well, after seven kids that's no surprise, But why cannot her mirror tell her lies?"
I'd have to quote the entire song to express it right...but there's seven of us, and the song just fits her so beautifully....
then there's "in the arms of an angel" which I danced to at prom....an entire Liam and Clancy cassette which evokes memories of numerous childhood cartrips, Roger Whittaker singing "Felice Navidad" at Christmas....most recently "send in the clowns" as a summary of my most recent romantic mess-up....so many more.
