30 Day Music Challenge- Day 5: A Song that Reminds You of Someone


'They' say that scent is a major memory trigger, but I think music might have a stronger effect for me. That said when I came to day five of the 30 day music challenge, I had a ton of people to choose from. But who would be the lucky boy or girl?

 

By process of elimination, it came down to a few choice individuals, but my bff Kyley ended up the victor. I met Kyley the first week of college, and had a very slight encounter, that was little more hello, but the universe had different plans for us. We both were living in residence at the time and both were having nothing but trouble with... well everything. After class I had to go down to the student service center to deal with some issues, and guess who ended up in line in front of me? We ended up chatting, then heading to the cafeteria where we talked for hours. Instant best friend. One topic we both happen to geek out about is music. Kyley is, what I call a Vedder-head (ie. Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam.) Before Kyley, I was not ever much of a fan of Pearl Jam, but to be honest I really didn't know much of their music. They always seemed a bit too aggro for me. With Kyley's expert guidance, I learned there is a softer side to both Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder. Now every time I hear Pearl Jam, I can't help but think of Kyley.

'Parachutes' from Pearl Jam (aka. The Avacado Album) (2006) is such a great song. Really not much more to say than that. Do you have a song that reminds you of someone?
