I don't listen to much of my own music lately. I usually listen to the radio on the way to work, and I'm assailed by the tone deaf selection of the sales agent populace outside my office at work. You might think I'm being harsh, but I'm confident that if there is any song in the world that you hate, the sales agent crew has played it. On repeat. For 2 hours straight. Their eclectic taste ranges from Hip hop to R&B and Hindi music, to even the shallowest, dankest depth that is chutney music. I think even East Coast Radio would be better than this musical wasteland.
The one song the sales agent crew seem to love more than other is Pokerface. I have heard Pokerface (give or take) 5 gajillion times (From Nafisa - How do you kill Lady Gaga? You poke 'er face. Something which I dearly would like to do at times). Weirdly enough though every time I hear the song, I seem to think of Azra. There is no real reason for this. And this got me thinking, there are quite a few songs that make me think of people I know when I hear them. Some of the songs I recognise the association with said person, others seem to have no connection to the person whatsoever.
Azra - Any Lady Gaga song.
Saaleha - Flash Republic - Twister.
Nooj - Taylor Swift songs, and Ironic - Alanis Morrisette.
Joe - Robbie Williams and Keane.
MJ - Sami Yusuf
Morena - She always get what she wants - Prime Circle
Parasputin - Tu na ja mere baadsha - Khuda Gawah
OrganHarvester - Seether - Given
Hamza - SOAD, Slipknot, NIN etc.
Queen Lestat - Smashing Pumpkins - Ava Adore
WIP - Nickleback
Actually looking back on it, most of the songs I know why they do make me think of the associated person, except Saaleha with Flash Republic and Azra with Lady Gaga, maybe there's some subconscious thing, which they can remind me about.
Till next time in Waseem World.
