Songs are amazing things. I mean that. Not just the lyrics, or the music, but they way they can instantly fill you with emotion and take your mind back to thoughts and memories as if you were reliving them over.
Thats why theres certain songs that, while they don't fit in with my usual musical taste at all, I will always treasure. Its why I like Simon & Garfunkel and Gerry Rafferty...because of the memories those songs are irrevocably linked to.
Baker Street. The Sound of Silence. The Boxer. Oxygene.
I hear these and I see, as if yesterday. Those songs will always be a trigger in my mind, a passage to something special. Even today...especially today.
I miss you Dad.
