This week, we are going to dip into a dimension we havn’t written about yet : music !
But we’re not going to write about any music. We’re going to write about the music themes and songs that are engraved in our dearest memories that can evoke a memory faster than anything else, or make you feel good and giddy. What music is so intertwined with your life and personality that you can play it in your head without actually hearing it ? What musical pieces remind you of a particular time in your life like it was yesterday ?
Here is The soundtrack of my life
Une chanson douce, Henri Salvador
My mom’s used to sing this to me as a lullaby.
The Dock of the Bay, Otis redding
I first heard the song while watching Top Gun. I couldn’t care less for the movie itself, but the music and Redding’s voice staid with me ever since.
Star Wars theme
I remember one of my first times in the theater watching the return of the Jedi. I did not understand why teddy bears were in the forest.
This song came out the year I decided to change my study major. I used to listen to Swim on my portable CD player while walking up the Promenade des Anglais à Nice.
Bach, Cello suite n°1 performed by Rostroprovich
One of my favorite classical music performance.
Mozart, die Zauberflöte
With Bach, Mozart is the other one in my favorite classical music composers duo.
Nothing else matters, Metallica
Il court il court le furet
My daughter’s favorite song these days.
