... yes, really. Over a month later. Shut up.

For me (I mean, really, I'm assuming for most people but I don't want to be presumptuous), emotional reactions to music are most of the time based on people and experiences that I associate with the music I listen to. Especially sadness; there's few songs that, in and of itself, make me sad just because the song is sad. Instead, the songs that make me sad are the songs that I mentally associate with people I sorely miss. I'm not going to get into the specifics, but "One Summer's Day" by Joe Hisaishi, from the Spirited Away soundtrack has, though a series of associations regarding a trip I took and who I took it with, ended up always making me feel melancholy at the very least when I hear it. It's a gorgeous song, too, from one of my favorite soundtracks, but I can't really listen to it all the time anymore because of the effect it has on me.

etc. etc. song meme etc. )

On another music-related note, one month after the World Cup and I'm still in love with the Uruguayan national anthem. I like that the World Cup this year has left me with a bit more of a drive to really get into soccer beyond following the Sounders; hopefully next month I'll be following the Premiere League to start with, and the World Cup has left me with a couple teams that I'm a fan of that aren't just the USA, I guess Norway (I will start paying attention to you, Norway!), and France (... lol, France). Does the fact that I supported both France and North Korea at the World Cup this year make me like the worst soccer fan ever? I think it might.
