There are many songs that you associate with people and events. As music has become more and more part of our daily lives and we are bombarded with it everywhere we go music lovers tend to be reminded of things when they listen to a specific tune.
I'm no different. Years ago after an evening of partaking in substances that shall go unnamed a few friends of mine where driving along Mt Baker highway. We were all quiet watching the sun come up and enjoying the blissful state of silence. Then suddenly the car stereo blares out the first few chords of the Violent Femmes 'Blister in the Sun'. Without saying a word we all sat with our heads leaned up against the vehicles windows until the time the vocals kicked in. We all sang along. It was our 'Almost Famous' moment, one I'll never forget.
Yesterday a friend told me she heard When in Rome's 'The Promise' and she thought of me. So today folks I bring you that.
"When in Rome, do as you done in Milledgeville." - Flannery O'Connor
