What's that one thing that always makes you feel blue?
A song called Edge Hill by Groove Armada.
Not long after my brother's unexpected death I was scanning all of the photographs I have of him onto my hard drive whilst listening to a Groove Armada album.
Months later, I was listening to the song Edge Hill and became profoundly sad. Even now, 14 years later, I struggle to listen to that song, as good as it may be.
"...why do birds suddenly appear, everytime you are near..."
That particular bit from the Carpenters' ‘close to you'. Although I've had heard it before it was played on a Simpson episode (When Homer meets Marge in the 70's), it was the show that makes me blue upon hearing the tune everytime it is played.
Are you ready internet?
I was drugged and assaulted, and when I try to recall the details I can't be a hundred percent sure I survived the ordeal or that any of this is real at all.
What happened to my family if this reality is not the real one? Always brings a tear.
