with my iphone, i pretty much never wish for any particular song. gone are the days. now if i want to hear something, i play it. and if i don't own it, i go find it in itunes. rare exceptions.
but i can remember when i was in high school and had just returned from my exchange program in vernon, all i wanted to hear was the stuff i'd heard over *there.* the one i remember trying hardest to track down and finally special-ordering the 45 from a local record shop (that link is in case i have any whippersnapper readers who don't know what a 45 is) was trio's "da da da." this was 1982 or so, so i'd never seen this (very creepy) video. but i loved the song because it had played a LOT while i was in france. and, of course, when one returns from a trip, one wants all the reminders one can find. because memories.
