“A song that reminds you of someone.” Doesn’t every song remind you of someone? Or is that just something crazy people like myself do?
I am on day five of the 30 Day Music Challenge and this is today’s selection…
Blink 182’s “Adam’s Song” always makes me think of Robb, one of my best friends and the man that introduced me to my husband. I think of him when I hear this song because he used to sing it at a local bar on karaoke night – sometimes with my husband, sometimes in his own.
When I hear this song, I think of him and my husband and I driving up to the dive bar, grabbing a seat at the sticky bar and ordering $2.50 drinks – mine was always Malibu Coconut Rum and Sprite, and he and my hubs would order beers…we’d order crappy sandwiches from the restaurant next door and sometimes my husband would buy me one of those cheesy roses from the guy that would inevitably come into the bar at some point.
I was not a big fan of Blink 182 when I met my husband and Robb in 2000, but through listening to them sing this song every Friday night throughout the fall of 2001 and spring and summer of 2002 (along with All The Small Things), I became a fan. Eventually, Blink 182 became one of my favorite bands! I’ve been known to spend $350 on tickets and it’s all thanks to him! ha ha ha
