I find it kind of funny the memories that music evokes. Be it a personal experience that you tie to a song or some other media like TV or movies.
Then, if you factor in generational change to that, then a single song can have a variety of associations.
Take, for example, Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking.” Nathan recently discovered that song when it was used in the soundtrack for Disney+’s Cruella.
He may forever associate that song with that film.
Me and that song? It’s always gonna be Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket.
That’s just how it is.
But for someone a handful of years to a decade younger than me like my brother or brothers-in-law, it might be Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.
Okay, not my brother. Jacket is one of his all-time favorite films so I know what association he’ll have.
