Any songs from any of my fav bands tbh mate

Hm, I tend to agree with above comment (so you could just look at the list of fave bands I posted recently), but I will try and list a few special ones together with the memory:

Slowdive - Spanish Air (is a song which reminds me of being in the car of a friend, who sometimes took me along to the 'indie/dark wave' etc. disco at the "Cat Café" or to a concert - he played the song on his car stereo and I liked it so much, that I often asked him to put it on again when I got into his car... this must've been around 1994-'96)

The Cure - Untitled (the whole album often reminds me of the summer of '89, but this song in particular; I was hanging about with not much to do and rather melancholy at the time - school was over, love lost, what comes next?)

The Cure - Snakepit ("Well I'm out in a car and it's just full of stupid girls" is part of the lyrics - and this is exactly what it reminds me of!! :-D)

The Sound - Sense of purpose (will always remind me of the times around 1987, when I listened to this and lots of other new wave/(post-)punk/gothic music with some friends, while we were driving to or trying to find places where this kind of music was played... yeah we had some long journeys...)

TV Smith - Backstage Bob (this song is a "tribute" to a mate who sadly passed away in 2007, so will always remind me of him)

Cranes - Beautiful friend (reminds me of a special person - she was a close friend around 1995)

Calexico - Feast of Wire (this album awakens memories of the hot summer back in 2003)

David Gilmour - Faces Of Stone (again makes me think of a special person...)

As you can imagine, this list could go on and on (and on)! But I'll leave it with these for the moment.
(For the "songs I couldn't live without": don't get me started, could be another endless list!!)
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...


A selection:

Killing Joke - Love Like Blood
Depeche Mode - Policy of Truth
Kim Wilde - Never Trust a Stranger
The Cure - The Caterpillar
Yes - America
Billy Joel - My Life
Prince - Sign O' the Times
Justin Timberlake - Cry Me a River
Robin Beck - First Time
Neneh Cherry - Buffalo Stance
Janet Jackson - Got 'Til It's Gone
a-ha - Train of Thought
The Police - Bring On the Night
The Soundcarriers - Last Broadcast
Missy Elliott & Da Brat - Sock It 2 Me
Notre esprit ne supporte pas un degré trop
élevé de précision, et nous avons plus de joie
dans l'indéfini: de là, la puissance de l'amour et
de musique; de là, les mystagogies hallucinantes.
