i think it's true when people says that a certain song can bring a certain memory or meaning to certain people. i mean whenever you hear this song, its remind you to someone or to a memory that you'll never forget. i never had one, not until i entered matriculation and met some good people there.
i was there for about 1 month and a half coz after that i withdrew from the institution to further my study in UiTM Shah Alam. i still remember, we will study together in our cute cubicle while listening to radio. at that time, Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry and Gwen Stefani's 4 In The Morning and Beyonce's Irreplaceable was a big hit. i listened to these songs almost everyday there and that is why up till now, flash of memory will come to my mind everytime i listen to these songs. it's like watching my own music video of my memories with the songs as the background music.
being there had taught me a lot about life and how to handle myself among strangers, although it just a month and a half. i never thought it would be a nice thing to remember but i was completely wrong. and these songs that i stated above really made it nicer.
ohh one more thing. do you know Backstreet Boys' Chapter One album? they released it back in 2002. i was just entered a hostel world at that time and i remembered bought the album coz i didn't have anything to listen to. i wasn't into mp3 at that time so my dad bought me a walkman instead. every night before i go to sleep, i'll listen to it until it stops. songs like Drowning, Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely and More Than That is my favorite and it'll remind me to my hard times living in hostel with me missing my family every single day.
so yes, i believe that song and memory can go together. it's funny how a song can make someone cry, or smile widely thinking about their memories.
