30 Day Song Challenge: Day 06


A song that reminds you of somewhere:  Somewhere or some ‘when’?…

Many songs remind me of some ‘when’, or at least a period in time.  For example anything off The Strokes album “This is it” reminds me of working in a crappy office in Luton while working my arse of in a band called Surefire, playing crappy gigs and working for little and mostly no reward.  There are many other songs that remind me of some ‘when’; “Little Wing” by Jimi Hendrix reminds me of doing my GSCE Art exam in 1998 and “A Girl Like You” by Edwin Collins reminds me of a holiday (vacation for readers in the US of A) in Hastings back in 1995 (just realised that’s a somewhere too!) but the song that can transport me back in time and space completely is “Weep” by Skunk Anansie.  That bugger beats the crap out of the Tardis and can take me back to my first band tour in Italy 1997.

So sticking with the original brief do I actually have a song that reminds me of somewhere?  Hmm, “Hell City” by New Generation Superstars reminds me of Helsinki but is that biased?
