Music Matrix

Listening to old music this evening, it reminds me the I inevitably associate former girlfriends or lovers with particular bits of music, often for better or worse. Not all of them but some.

Examples that leaped immdiately to mind when listening:

  • Soundgarden - Pleiades
  • Nirvana - Chris (my first wife)
  • Sisters of Mercy - Lesa
  • Nick Cave - R (my wife)

Other music reminds me of friends of mine that I once had, such as Stephen and Marilyn Manson or John and Nine Inch Nails.

Some associations are because of the time period when I met people or because of music that they were either into or got me into…

I freely to admit to having probably insufferable taste in music but perhaps I can shift the blame to my former friends and loves? :-)
