It is from 1995 but has a much older feel to it. Normally I hate black and white videos but it works for this one.

When some cold tomorrow finds you When some sad old dream reminds you How the endless road unwinds you
When there's no one left to leave you Even you don't quite believe you That's when nothing can deceive you
Don't you know by now No one gives you anything? And don't you wonder how you keep on moving?

This song came out when I was 12 and my best friend and I were starting to go our separate ways. We’d been best friends since nursery school, but he was getting popular and hanging out with a new group of friends and going to parties and such. I was still kind of a nerd who liked to ride bikes and play Nintendo.
One of the last times he slept over my house we watched A League of Their Own and this was the song playing at the end credits and so I associate it with my childhood buddy.

My straight best friend came to visit me when we were teens, and he insisted we play this album every night, on repeat, while we slept side by side in my full size waterbed. I thought for sure something was going to happen and it never did. I only bought the album for Freedom 90 and Praying For Time, but he sort of forced me to love the rest of it, and now I think of him whenever I play it. Especially this song.

I don’t know why listening to Fleetwood Mac always makes me wistful. The inclusion of Gypsy above brought it all back. could be I was about 15 and starting to choose my own music to listen to. Always liked Fleetwood Mac. To this day I can only understand about one word in every three Stevie Nicks sings. Never know what she’s singing but absolutely love her. Sara is one of my all time favourites. Still don’t know what it’s about except somebody’s undoing and is building a house and she’s going to call her. Could listen to it on repeat all day.

"Midnight Blue" - Melissa Manchester.
I had left last night's fuck's house one Sunday afternoon, and walked past the bar where we'd picked each other up, which happened to be on the street where I lived. I thought I'd go in, see if I could score again before walking the rest of the way home. I got my drink and walked over to the seating section. This song was playing.
Right in my line of sight was last night's fuck. I wondered if he'd played the song. We knew each other, had dated/fucked on and off for a couple of years. I'd spent the night at his house because his lover, as we called them then, was away for a week. I'd loved this man so much, but to him, according to the lover, I was nothing but "a piece of shit to fuck."
"I think we can make it, if we try. One more time for all the times" hung in the air between us. I left, knowing this would never be true. I had to get out of there. We never did make it. Not even one more time for all the old times.
But at least I have this song to remind me of him. Now that's called wistful.

The Christians: Words. This song came out in 1990 when I was 11. All my friends and classmates loved this song. It's incredibly beautiful and children back then were able to appreciate beauty. Compare it to the songs 11-12 year old kids listen to today. Are we progressing as a society or regressing?

"A new career in an new town' by David Bowie. Ironically, Bowie references this song in his last song from his last album "Blackstar" ("I can't give everything away") before passing 2 days after it's release. It's happy and sad and wistful and very much how I see life itself.

Ok, newish song- so I saw the movie OLD- and WOW this song absolutely riveted me because a young woman wrote it, but for me it’s really about experiencing true love, heartbreak, and being with the person you want to be with for the rest of your life. The movie sputters a bit yet amazingly my husband liked it. It’s only a horror movie if you’re afraid of aging.
I love that it’s one of the rarest of songs would be perfectly appropriate to play at both a wedding and a funeral.
