Day 7- A song that reminds you of an event
The wonderful thing about music is that it has the incredible power to remind you of someone, some event or some time of your life, just by hearing the first few seconds of that song. That quality therefore makes this another difficult choice to make, when there are so many songs that take me back to a specific event in my life. Seeing as the last two posts weren’t the most cheerful, I decided to pick a song from my youth (in other words, when I was 18).
Man Eater by Nelly Furtado doesn’t really seem like a huge memory song. But it brings me back to the summer of 2006, the year I finished secondary school and finished my Leaving Cert. And more importantly it reminds me of my debs. A debs, for anyone that doesn’t know, is Ireland’s equivalent to the prom. So essentially a night of fancy dresses, suits, dinners, dancing and drinking! The dance floor was busy enough just before this started playing but within 3 seconds of it starting, the floor was mobbed. Mainly by my guy friends dragging this one particular lad up onto the dance floor as it was ‘his song’. I think I stood there in amazement to see boys excited about this song, when I think of it more of a girly song! Plenty of other songs remind me of this night but this song shines out!
