About four or five years ago, around the spring months, there came on the radio one day while I was on the train, one of those songs that you can’t help but remember and got stuck in your head. I was instantly enchanted by it. Its such a good song or a song that fits with you so well, that you kind of hurt with the need to hear it again. But for one reason or another every time it would come on I would never be in a position to hear of its name or the band that sang it. So time went on and everytime it came on, I was overjoyed to hear it again, but I never did catch what I could to get it permamently. Time went by and of course, the song stopped getting played on the radio.
So since then, for about four years or so, I’ve been searching for that song, listening to all sorts of free trial CD tracks or trying those online snatches of songs, downloading MP3s and keeping vigilant on the radio and I never was able to hear it again.
Until today! Today, on a whim I decided to buy a CD, and since I had so enjoyed two of their other albums, I decided on Quruli’s The World is Mine, which BTW, is fantastic.
Imagine my surprise, when BINGO PRESTO HEY HO THE BEST-O! track 4 was MY SONG! The song I had been looking for all these years! The one that had lingered in my memory and I had longed to hear again so much. As soon as it got to the 30 second mark on the song I recognized it and screamed really quite loudly from sheer happiness.
(The song in question is World’s END Supernova. Isn’t it GREAT?)
Well, since having listened to it 15 billion times in sheer bliss, from talking to friends I think this is one those universal human experiences lots of people have, like taking a splinter out with tweezers, or having one’s first crush or something, that is, the finding of a song that has haunted your memory for years finally. Its such an awesome, complete, lovely, goo-goo-happy-woo feeling.
I’m wondering if anyone else has had experiences like that. So, have you?
