We all do it, let’s face it. We meet someone, get involved with that person, and suddenly, somehow, a song is listed as “Our Song”. Things are great as long s the relationship continues. Everytime we hear that song, it happily reminds us of that person. Some people even get married to an “Our Song” eventually.
However, what happens when you break up? That “Our Song” is now often a bitter reminder of the breakup, how you were treated in the ending days of the relationship, and if it’s a popular song at the time, you’re forced to relive it over and over again each time.
There are four songs in particular that I cannot listen to anymore. One is “When You Say Nothing At All” done by Allison Kraus. Another recently is “Virtual Insanity” by Jamiroquai because I suddenly remembered, out of the blue, that was the song playing when I met someone. Thing that sucks? I really like that song!
So, why do we do it? Isn’t it enough to simply have the memory of the person while together and then either swallow that it ever happened later or just remember the good times? Personally, I’ve really grown to hate the “Our Song” deal. Same goes for “Our Place” and the like.
