Recent, yet so far behind

Today I recovered a CD I hadn't listened to for years (almost had dust in the cover) and I put it in my stereo - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea by PJ Harvey. Talk about being taken back! This was a trip back to 2000 inside a spaceship - an unpleasant one, I might add. Why is it so upsetting if I was happy at the time and listened to the songs feeling so in love? Why does it turn my stomach and depress me? (The answer is obvious but I'd rather leave it in the air.)

What was is you wanted?
I just wanna say
Don't ever change now baby
And thank you
I don't think we will meet again
And you must leave now
Before the sunrise, above skyscrapers
The sin and this mess we're in

(feat. Thom Yorke - This mess we're in)

I think that for some of us, life has a soundtrack. Most of the time that is a good thing, but sometimes not. I definitely have artists or CDs I'd otherwise like who remind me of things I'd rather not think about. The happy reverse of that is also true though.

i love this song, although it reminds me of sad things. it IS a depressing song Devil, it really is, it doesn't matter that you were in love back then.

Stephanie: that's true - I have a huge soundtrack and I can't listen to a very significant part of it without feeling sad. But, yes, other songs just make us happy all the time :)

Chloe: It is depressing but at the time it wasn't - at least I didn't think it was but, to be fair, when you're singing "I don't think we will meet again" so many times, it might come true lol
