Songs are funny like that

Songs can have an amazing effect on people in a number of different ways.

Over the past few months I’ve found that there are some key songs that take me back in history to my younger days, and the time that I enjoyed spending with friends who have since departed.

In particular they remind me of my best friend Roland who left us almost 4 years ago now. Although they are happy memories of good times, it’s still in a place where the I’m sadder that he has gone than I am happier that we had those times. I’ve heard that changes as the time passes, and it has certainly done so for the most part, it’s just a few songs the bring back those feelings.

These are two songs that I wouldn’t usually have associated with Rol’s, but the first (From Little Things…) reminds me about the guy he was, always standing up from what was right and not shying away from a challenge.
