I associate music with a lot of different things - places, certain events in life, and people. I bet you didn't know that I associate most of you with certain songs. Here we go!
Dad - Anything by Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, and "Alley Cat" (b/c it is the one song you would play on the piano and I asked you how you knew to do the part at the end w/ the triplets and you said you made it up. Once I knew how to read music I looked at the sheet music and discovered you lied)
Mom - "Mary Did You Know," Clay Aiken's version (b/c you really like it...and so I bought you piano music...which you forgot that I did and so you were going to buy more...until I found the sheet music I had previously purchased)
Lanson - The entire album of Steve Miller Band's greatest hits (b/c I would listen to it and cry because I missed you when you were on your mission).
Diana - "All for You" by Janet Jackson (b/c it played everywhere when we were in Europe)
Kim - "The Sign" by Ace of Bace* (b/c when it came out you told me to stop singing it because it was a bad song and I'm still trying to figure out why...)
Mark - "Hotel California" by the Eagles (b/c you told me once it was your favorite song)
Jill - "Invisible" by Clay Aiken** (b/c we looked it up on youtube while driving in San Francisco...and you borrowed my barbies to make a music video of it)
Jesselah - "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus (b/c it may or may not be the most played on your itunes)
Beth - any song by Michael Jackson. (b/c you heart him)
Kelli & Emily - "Everytime we Touch" by Cascada (b/c we listened to it a lot, and rolled around in blue foam while it was playing...that sounds bad but it's not)
Jenn & Marcelle - "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion (b/c of your amazing interpretive dance)
Jennie, Nina & Rose-Ellen - "Hey Ya!" by Outkast (b/c it defined our Freshman year together)
For those of you not yet on the list - just you wait. With time you will be added.
*This is a terrible music video.
**I had no idea that Clay Aiken was so present in my life.
