What was the most memorable first listening of a Dar song? Or, alternately, what is the strongest memory that one of Dar's songs evokes?
I'll answer this, and hope it catches on...
Last summer, my aunt, her boyfriend, and my cousin kidnapped me and took me back to Seattle with them. It was great fun. During my stay there, my cousin V went to stay with her dad, and my aunt G and her boyfriend O (they actually call themselves this, so I'm not just being overly paranoid here), and I went to Canada on a two-day trip. In a Rabbit. I got the backseat to myself, so it wasn't very crowded, but I'd never before been in a car that small. It was an experience.
So, that night, we were back in Washington, and it was after midnight. We were trying (unsuccessfully) to find a hotel that wasn't booked or horribly expensive. We were between towns, and I was getting tired, so I figured I'd listen to some music. So, I put on my headphones, and told the adults I'd be incommunicado for a while. And I plugged in End of the Summer, laid down across the backseat, craned my neck...and heard "Are You Out There" come blasting out at me.
As it did, the stars became visible, and the moon, and the sensation of the car moving under me, and....it was an extremely memorable experience for me. Listening to that song always brings me back to when I was on vacation, stargazing through a large window in a small car. It's just...*sigh* wonderful for me to remember.
So, does anyone else have anything interesting to post? Memories? Stories? Anything?
