Speeding Cars - Imogen Heap
I'm going to be honest about this: I hate her voice. I think she's a terrible singer, and if I heard this song for the first time today, I'm pretty sure I would hate it, but instead it holds nostalgic value. I got into music a little later than most, and I remember my two best friends at the time had become obsessed with this song. Solely from their singing it all the time, I memorized all of the lyrics, and being an overdramatic wannabe at the time, I loved all songs that mentioned suicide. (I was convinced I was emo and depressed at the time. It is a period of my life I am extremely ashamed of...) Anyway, funny thing, I hadn't actually heard the song, so I was convinced that the singer was a dude. Imagine my surprised when I heard it the first time. Anyways, the reason this song sticks with me is because I feel that it was the first song I ever really had a relationship with, you know? Sometimes I listen to it just to go back to that time in my life... a time I'm a little ashamed of, but still... I don't know. It's hard to express. Anyways, the second song I ever had a relationship with, I was also introduced to by my friend (who is (kind of) on Polyvore, by the way: dannitheawsome. I don't think she's signed in for almost a year, but whatever...). That song I call my first favorite song: Golden by Fall Out Boy.
Well, if you haven't noticed I like to think a lot about music, but not in the normal way. More in a personal, historical(?) way. I honestly spend hours meditating on this kind of stuff. I know. I'm weird.
By the way, I know the set is kind of crap. I just didn't want to put more effort into it. I mostly just wanted to write this note, heh. Well, a crap set for a crap song, right? Or crap memories.
Shit. I hate it when I get all nostalgic like this. Pull yourself back to the freaking present, Nick! Your not old enough to spend all your time in the past, in your regrets. F*$%. I'm going to go take a shower to clear my head.
If you actually read this entire note, well, congratulations and get a life.
