” Song that reminds you of your first love”
I originally read this as “lost love” and was worried about it, how to choose just one song that reminds me of my “lost” love?
First love is different though.
I didn’t have a lot of loves in my life until I met Tom, but I have one before him that was not a great relationship, but I did love him, and I think he loved me in his crazy way.
A song though? Wow. This is hard in a very different way. We never had “a song”. We were together off and on for a few years, a relationship of convenience, mostly (in our 20’s, fooling around…neither faithful). I “loved” him more than he did me, although when I finally, absolutely quit him, which is when I started dating Tom, he went a little berserk. All of a sudden he was in love, even proposed to me. He didn’t mean it, it was ridiculous. I guess I became much more appealing when I was unavailable.
Anyway, I am not going to belabor this post. This is not a romantic song, nor is it one that “we” liked. As a matter of fact I would say it not only refers to this guy, but all the relationships (and I use that word very loosely!) I had early on, before Tom. I wasn’t ready and I wasn’t particularly discerning.
This song was a big hit while we were together though, and the first I thought of, so , ladies and germs, I give you this Marilyn Manson version of Tainted Love….
