Some Girls Belong To Some Songs


Sure, songs remind you of times and places but does it remind you of  some girls. For me I tend to let the girl dictate to me the song and I don’t mean our song, she might not even know it is our song, but somethings a song and a girl will come together…. Here is five such times. One of these girls is dead, one of these girls doesn’t speak to me (her husband won’t let her), one became one of my best friends, one lives in the UK and is a Grandma! And one I still date!!! The names of the girls  in question have been removed to protect the innocent.

Green Shirt (demo) – Elvis Costello –2010 – A long afternoon of teasing and flirting culminated in me teaching little Miss Know Everything About Costello a lesson by playing for her this acoustic demo with an extra verse, the rest was easy.

Lua – Bright Eyes – 2005-  I had been arguing with this girl about Bright Eyes for a coupla years but she refused to listen to me. So one night we are talking on the phone and I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning has just been released. So I said I was gonna email her the file to “Lua” and if she doesn’t like it okay I’ll give up. Then I go to sleep and around 3am she calls me, a little drunk, and sings the entire song to me over the phone.

Transmission – Joy Division – 1999 – I taught her absolutely nothing about music  (actually I taught her how to play guitar -I meant turned her on to absolutely no music), but she taught me a lot about EDM, which she listened to in Long Island dance clubs. I wrote a short story about her which I called “Dance” at first and then changed to “Transmission”. It was the “dance dance dance to the radio” I was aiming for.

Lay Back In The Arms Of Someone – Smokie – 1977 – Speaking of drunken phone calls, some 20 years after I’d last seen this girl, she called me out of the blue , crying (drunk of course) and singing this song to me and telling me how much she missed me.

Highway Star – Deep Purple –  1975 – She was a topless dancer in a club on Phoenicia Street and quite possibly the prettiest girl I’ve ever known. One night we are hanging out at the club between shows and this song comes on. We take to the dancefloor and she commandeers it the way great dancers sometimes will, twirling round and round and round like a star so bright and so far away. .
