Yesterday I had meeting in Amersfoort. Nothing major in itself. Just a one-and-a-half-hour train trip to there and of course back again. But just about the whole train trip I had the chorus of “this is how you remind me” in my head. Fun and annoying at the same time.
So half the train trip I was trying to recall who sang it. My last bet was Matchbox twenty. How wrong I was. Walking home from the train station on a glorious post summer day I enjoyed watching people. I enjoyed watching my city in the sun and every time it was there again; “this is how you remind me, of what I really am., yeah yeah”
Now I fully am aware that the rest of the song has no bearing on the enjoyment that came with the meme, but it just stuck and gave me even more enjoyment walking through town. Remembering every time how happy I feel and how lucky I am. First thing I did when I got home was to find our who the artist is. Nickleback, not Matchbox Twenty. Hmmm I then realised I did not have that song. Ohhhhhhhhhhh must have, and must have it now!!!! Can’t live another second without it.
iTunes then is really the best thing for instant gratification and only a few second later my CC was filled and I had the track on my computer. I felt instant happiness. But then of course I want to find some Matchbox Twenty songs and some others that I really really needed there and then. I ended up with 5 more songs.
Loving the ones I got, but really was this not just another form of shopping too much? After all I could not live without one song and now I have 6. Well fed my music need. Think I am going to listen a bit more to them as I do really like them. But I could have lived without 4 of them.
