Day 04 - A Song That Makes You Sad
Considering how often this reduced me to tears, it can only be...
Meryl Streep - "Slipping Through My Fingers" - from Mamma Mia!
I think I finally became immune to this beast after about... 20 listens? Yeah. No idea why, it just gets to me.
Day 05 - A Song That Reminds You Of Someone
I did have a song written down here, which used to remind me of Paul... except it doesn't any more, or at least not present-day Paul. :) It reminded me of Paul when we were first going out, so it's not that relevant now. So instead, here is something horrendously geeky.
Lily Allen - "Chinese"
This is one of those "once you have seen it, it cannot be unseen" situations. During the midst of post-Easter special madness, and the period shortly before that when I was attempting to finish the last of my episode tags, this song kept on reminding me of Jonathan and Maddy and her inevitable return. Or at least an inevitable return in which there was not a decade of complicated history and things had been actually normal before she buggered off to America.
Of course, once I'd made that association (it usually only takes a couple of lines or a few words to cause it) it wouldn't go away, and now I can't listen to it without thinking of J/M. Unfortunately, the Marks and Spencer's adverts have the same effect - you have no idea how bloody glad I was when they finally showed Caroline Quentin's character's husband in those adverts. Seriously.
Sad, but true. And alas, it's not the only song which does this. I have at least one for every fandom / pairing. :D
Aaanyway, that's it.
Just waiting for Alex and Dina to arrive for another of our dinner party, three-course menu efforts. This time we're having chicken liver pate with crusty bread to start (made by Paul - the pate, anyway), followed by steak-and-ale pie (me) and cheescake with strawberry coulis (Paul - his first ever dessert!) if it ever sets. :D
OM NOM. This time there will be pictures. ;)
