day 01 – your favorite song

I don’t have one.

Absolutely seriously don’t. The thing that’s been putting me off doing this 30 days of music thing the most is this question. No clue as to how to answer it. I mean, there’s infinite criteria. You could go on and on justifying one over another. I’ve been stuck picking a reason for picking one. But then…. A BREAKTHROUGH!

Music reminds me of stuff. When I remember something important in my life, most of those times have a song associated with it. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. So I’ve finally decided on picking a song which has the most positive associations with my own experiences.

I was going to go with Girl In The Fire by Pendulum, cos it’l always remind me of going to Glastonbury last year with my pals. There’s a bazillion stories relating to it which are probably only interesting to me and my pals, so I’ll keep quiet. On the way there and back, all we listened to in the car was the Kingdom of Rust album by Doves (with me changing my mind every ten minutes as to whether I liked the title track or not), and Girl In The Fire. Always played at ear-crushing volume, and always made us grin like Compo from Last of the Summer Wine on smack. Anyway, I was going to go with Pendulum, but I’m not.

After at least seven minutes of thinking on this subject, I’ve decided to go with Where Is My Mind by The Pixies. “But Benjamin”, you may or may not think to yourself, “you’re not even a fucking huge massive fan of The Pixies! You can only name two other songs of theirs, and that’s cos one was in Grosse Pointe Blank and the other had a pair of tits on the cover!” And you would be startlingly correct. However, that’s the song I’m going with, for several reasons, but here’s the three that are fit to print.

It’ll always remind me of Fight Club; of being roughly mind-fucked by Fincher, Pitt, Norton, Bonham-Carter, and Loaf, of seeing it in the piccies several times, of the girlfriend I had at the time, of conning my girlfriend at the time to see it, and of my bullshit story to her actually becoming true many years later.

It also reminds me of meeting someone else a long time afterwards, of learning the song on the guitar to impress her, of that actually working, of staying up late chatting and smoking and drinking red wine even though I fucking hate the stuff, of good times and bad times, and staying friends after it ended.

And finally, it’s just fucking ace.
